COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This pale golder, Belgian-influenced ale is for everyone: Farm Girl, wannabe Farm Girl. In the Belgian Farmhouse tradition, this brew has a dry malt finish and a spicyness that only Belgian yeasts can create. Smooth and well rounded... this one can please anyone in any situation, whether you are on the water, in the sun, or hiding from winters chill.

Fruity. Light though. Lots of flavor. Served in the wrong glass and Stub and Herbs.

Sampled at great taste. Hazy gold with some white in it. Thin feel. Grassy with some lemon. Not enough here.

kramer (6306) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body with a small fizzy white head that faded fairly quickly. The nose is fairly restrained in the spice department, which is nice to see. Pale slightly bready malts with a nice yeast profile and some floral notes. The flavor is a little bland, the light spicing is better than going overboard, but theres not a whole lot of softness or complexity to the malts. Tastes more like a generic "Golden/Blond Ale" than a a true Belgian style Saison, theres no farmhouse character or funkiness at all. Medium bodied with slight stickiness and soft fizzy carbonation. An OK beer I guess, but a little lacking within the realm of the style.

riversideAK (6231) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 28, 2009
Lightly sweet, some straw, spice, banana, and light cereal malt notes. Hazy yellow, nice head. Wheat, cereal, grain, some orange, very carbonated. Very uninteresting.

(12oz bottle thanks to bu11zeye) clear yellow, film of white bubbles, excellent lace. Nose of grass, white pepper, rye, coriander, light spicy. Taste of white pepper, grass, spices, soft carb, creamy, semi-dry finish.

In short: A muddy floral witbier calling itself a Saison. Fails as a Saison, acceptable as muddy thirst quencher
How: Bottle 12oz. Consumed fresh as soon as I received it from beastiefan2k, thanks Eugene
The look: Ugly banana pure color topped by a white ring of foam
In long: Nose of yeasty ripe banana esters. Taste of white bread, mangos, bananas, a little lemon zest, marshmallows, citrus fruits. Dead flowers show up in the finish to remove some of the fruity sweetness. Overall this feels like a rather muddy witbier more than a Saison. As far as Saisons are concerned this is a complete failure, but sold as a witbier (or even a hefe) this is an acceptable beer. Im a Saison-whore so I need to try them all but this just is not a Saison. Its like they put the wrong beer in the bottle. Like that time a stripper jumped out of the cake, following a mix-up at the bakery, and completely ruined my nephews fourth birthday.

JK (5940) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2008 Tap and Stub & Herbs. This is a mid-grade saison. Certainly not comparable to something from Fantome or Blaugies, but for a new brewery in Minnesota, not bad at all. The cloudy color is right, but no sediment. The aroma has yeast, cloves, some citrus, along with the flavor that is more of the same but also includes some sugar. Medium palate. Lightly spiced. Some wheat. A decent first try. It needs more intense flavor.

jgb9348 (5913) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 4, 2016
Slightly cloudy golden coloured body with a thinnish, two centimetre tall pure white head and thousands of small bubbles rising from the bottom. Aroma of hay, grass, yeast, curacao, full oranges and a bit of caster sugar. Medium-bodied; Assertive sweet orange flavour with a mellow wheatie malt backbone with some yeast elements and hints of grass. Aftertaste shows some sugars from the caster sugar and oranges, but a bit of grass and the complex yeast strain as well comes through. Overall, a decent saison, but better beer in general - this tastes, looks and feels like a wit, so for that style, a good beer that should be sampled if you like the style and can find this! I sampled this sixteen ounce draught at Republic in Minneapolis Airport on 04-October-2016 for US$8,49.

nuplastikk (5911) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 26, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2013 12oz bottle split. Hazy, pale, yellow-tan color, soapy off white head that fades into a thin, oily non-presence. Fruity sweet aroma, a touch of lemony funk. I almost get some peach notes in my first sip. Soft on the palate, well above par for an American Saison. Mellow fruity tones, with a gentle peppery hop balance. Fruity tangerine and sweet malt finish. Delicious and refreshing, this is one to seek out. Wow.
