2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
341ml bottle pours straw in color with a small white head that leaves only a few specks of lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruits with some light caramel and light grassy hops. Taste is light fruit and malt sweetness with a mild hop bitterness. Light to medium body with mild carbonation. By far the best that Minhas has to offer, but still only about average for the style.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. SLightly cloudy yellow brew with a wafer thin head that is gone in a second. Ye gods - looks like a urine sample in the glass. Aroma of fruit - lemon, pear, green apple - some sour funk. Taste is sweet caramel and candy apple, lemon grass. A little dry in the finish. There is nothing foul or bad here but it is a mish mash of odd and off flavors. I was thinking it was a saison / farmhouse ale (given that those very words are printed on the label) but see that it is a golden / blond ale. Sheese - seldom care for those. Well, it’s a bust. Not a drain pour but not enjoyable.

Decent complexity for the style and still easy to drink. Not incredible but decent enough.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
This is terrible. Pours blonde with small white beaded head. Aroma is fruity, hay, light malt. Taste is very sweet....too sweet, fruity with some apple and pear on the finish. This beer loses points for not being a farmhouse ale. It’s just cloyingly sweet and mildly offensive all-around.

What the hell is this? This is no farmhouse ale. This is for pouring down the drain.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
A: The pour is a slightly hazed golden orange color with minimal head formation and retention.
S: Really a very minimal aroma to this beer. Quite watery with a bit of overcooked vegetable and garbage water aroma. Just what I wanted. More and more corn comes through as it sits.
T: Quite tinny with a strong flavor of overcooked corn. Like the nose, the flavor is definitely watery. Not super offensive, but nowhere near good, either.
M: Light in body, watery, and low carbonation.
O: Poor on all fronts. Not a good beer.
