COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saison, the original Farmhouse Ale, was the refreshing invention of thirsty Belgian farmers. Wisconsin pale barleys brewed with Grains of Paradise in this bright new copper hued ale. Deceptively approachable, its complicated fermentation incorporates a blend of three Belgian yeast strains and is fully bottle conditioned. Fresh hops snap with lemon zest and peppery ginger notes, lending to its enigmatic personality. Enjoy, as this sassy Wisconsin Saison is at its best thirst quenching drinkability now.

Bottle thanks to phaleslu, NOT failslu. Thanks! Aroma of toasted toasted dough, wet grass, herbs. Taste is soft bitter herbal grass, rustic dough. High carbonation. More doughy than expected, but works. Nice beer.

MacDouglass (88) - Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Aroma: alcohol, maybe some banana, barley, actually somewhat muted; Appearance: a ever so slightly hazy golden, bordering on orange, after the pour, the slightest ring of carbonation settles on the edges by the glass, good bubble action after the pour; Taste: some clove, some banana cream, something doughy, some citrus rind, quite complex, extremely tasty; Palate: something sweet lingers, decent bitter that lingers, good nose feel in the carbonation; Overall: I really like this beer, I canít say exactly why, but Iím guessing its mostly because it tastes awesome and without any one flavor/aspect dominating, Iím not an expert taster by any means, but I swear that this beer is one of the more complex Iíve had in a while, Iíd definately recommend it

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Big spicy/ fruity yeast nose. The flavor is spicy yeast and hops, sweet grains, fruity, yeasty. This is a solid saison. Very well crafted.

Had this one bottled thanks to Wyl! Saisons are just not my style, and this was not much different.

12 ounce bottle
Picked up while in Madison this is another fine entry in the Unplugged/Thumbprint series. While it is not the best there are certainly less inspiring releases. Buy a four pack so you can drink one now and still have three left to enjoy in the years to come.

Aroma / Appearance - The carbonated base sparkles with a semi-transparent presence that glows. Little head remains once it settles down. Straw, freshly cut hay tramped in the field, and oranges warm the senses. Smelling like a barnyard after a light rain it has a simple but elegant nose.

Flavor / Palate - Straw and hay soften the senses almost immediately. Damp muddy boots carry into a orange citrus finish. A fine mixture of Belgian and American influences this is worth drinking again and again until it finally canít be found.

JStax (2772) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Poured from a refrigerated bottle received from weihenheizen. Thanks! Pours a pale yellow with a nice froth of white foam. The aroma is grassy and floral with a mellow sweetness kind of lingering in the background. It has an almost earthy undertone to it. Taste is quite well balanced sweetness and earthy bitterness. I wouldnt mind having this beer again.

Bottle @ Bradís house Minneapolis picked up at Historic Casanovaís. Pours a bit cloudy, golden orange appearance with an off white head. Lemon peel, zesty spicy, a bit peppery, barnyard, straw, carbonated aroma. Pretty dry, lemon/tangerine citrusy, a touch funky, barnyard, hay, white pepper, a bit zesty flavor. Easy to drink and pretty tasty.
