7/03/2007: Lake Louie Prairie Moon Farmhouse Ale is an interesting color. I can’t decide if the color is more like light fuzzy peach or very pale apricot. I guess either would be sufficiently applicable. Where is my wife when I need her?! She would know how to describe it! Either way, it is cloudy and there is a thin, diminishing white crown on the surface. At first this beer smells more like a Belgian Wit based on the orangy citrus and corriander in the nose. However, further inspection reveals that it is more complex than that as subtle scents of wheat, grass, and other herbs, spices, and fruits surface. The flavor is also complex and hard to describe. There is a large infusion of various flavors including wheat, yeast, lemon, various herbs and spices, ginger, grassy and floral hops, and a slight funkiness. There is also an enjoyable level of sourness and a lingering bitterness that is mild and pleasant. The flavor is very interesting and quite good overall. The medium body is slightly effervescent which makes it feel lightweight and airy on the palate. Well done! This is a nicely crafted beer that would appeal to those who prefer a Belgian Wit and/or Saison. There are many characteristics of both styles married together in this tasty brew!bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUN 13, 2007

12oz bottle acquired in trade with Brigadier (thanks!). Poured a medium and cloudy golden color with a smaller sized white head. Lots of small floaters. Aromas of spices (cloves, peppers and more), citrus, bananas, and general fruitiness. Tastes of spices, citrus, graininess, and lighter fruitiness. Thinner body. buckybeer (666) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 29, 2007
Pours a hazy light golden with a small head. Aroma is wheat, light spices and citrus with some hints of floral. Flavor is sort of bland. Mild malts, hops and spice. Nothing outstanding but still pretty solid.

Picked up a bottle from Bob’s McFarland Liquors, in McFarland, WI. Pours a hazy honey yellow brew with a fizzy white head that dissolves quickly to a thin film. Lacing is thin. Aroma has scents of popcorn, orange peel, sour apples, and vanilla powder. Taste is fizzy carbonated, yeasty orange/lemon palate, and light bodied. Palate is where the honey kicks in with some yeast aftertaste. The finish is a bit light/watery and dry. Almost a light Belgian Ale character beer than a Saison. beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 30, 2007
Hazy yellow pour with a thin creamy white head. Good aroma of fruits, noble hops and pepper. Good flavor of noble hops, fruits and pepper with a good belgian farmhouse character, it also feels mildly lactic. The body has a medium thickness with an oily texture and moderate carbonation. A very interesting saison. ElGaucho (2401) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - DEC 19, 2006
GTM ’06. Draught. Fresh fruit aroma. Cloudy dark yellow. Like a hefeweizen. Not quite dark enough orange for a hefe. Thin, white head. Light. tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2006
Pineapple and banana fruitiness are dominant in the nose with underlying hay, grain and cheese notes. Fruit seems overripe and builds nicely as it warms. Hazy blonde body is topped by a decent white head that recedes to a partial cover with some lacing. Banana, wheat, citrus flavours blend harmoniously with mild but notable spicy character and herbal, haylike hops. Undercurrent of funky overripe fruit and old cheese. Light body is fluffy in texture with decent, soft bubbled carbonation that awakens the tongue. Going Away Party. ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - NOV 14, 2006
Pale straw body with a medium sized off-white head. The aroma is banana, corriander, grassy hops and orange. The flavor is overwhelmed by ginger and orange peel, some cheese, grass, lemon, and sugar. The mouthfeel is light with sharp, biting carbonation.
