Lightly hazed golden color with a moderate light beige head. Aromas of wheat, and lightly spicy yeast. Quite sweet, with floral and sweet herbs. Light wheat sweetness in the background. A cross between a weiss and a saison. 3/11

Light copper with a tiny bit of haze - soapy lace - nose is very sweet, with strong apricot and mango notes, light rye, light starchiness - low carbonation - flavor is quite sweet - moderate apricot, peach, and very lightly musky pineapple - husky rye late - some starchy and doughy yeast - sweet and mildly spicy finish - not much of a saison.

From the 12-ounce bottle, this had a ridiculous pour. Its white head filled a good 7/8s of the glass and took a long time to calm down. When it finally appeared, the body had a rich golden color. The aromas (when it finally appeared) was warm bread with a touch of floral scents. The flavor had dull lemon and zest and was tangy, seltzer-like, with an underlying pale malt sweetness. The finish was quite dry. This is drinkable, but the pour alone makes it not worth the effort. rumproasts (5478) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 4, 2012
bottle. golden with one finger head. strong citrus with slight tartness. light bodied, but decent flavor. virtually no funk, but decent for a cheap beer. ads135 (4853) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 23, 2013
This is a nice saison; above average. It has a nice peppery nose and a citrus and spice flavor. Cloudy yellow appearance with super carbonation. Got this from Josh N. after the winter beer tasting. 2012.

Not quite sure I’d call this a saison but I am no longer sure what in the hell a saison is now that American brewers have gotten a hold of it. Lot’s of them taste like this. It’s a nice golden amber color but w/ only a short lasting head. It’s nose is mostly bananas w/ a hint of cinnamon and clove spice. Taste more or less follows aroma w/ maybe a bit of a floral lavender character becoming apparent. This is a bit sweet and sticky on the palate if you pay attention but it’s honestly hard to tell do to brisk, biting carbonation--which suits the style unlike the sweetness. This is a pretty nice take on a Belgian pale ale, I’d say. Whether it is actually a saison is a point of debate but it doesn’t have to be a saison to be a good beer.

12 oz bottle. I find the label and six pack motifs pretty obnoxious, so they’re not starting off on the right foot. Aroma of apricot, husk, wheat, mild citrus. Flavor is dominated by an inferior yeast strain. Lots of peach and apricot flavors, mild huskiness. Some apples, some caramel. Better than I thought it might have been. Medium bodied. Pretty average. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Clear amber with a soapy white slowly dissipating head. Aroma of grains, spices, mild fruit, yeast, toasted malt and light caramel. Taste of yeast, fruit, caramel, light lemon and grains. Dry finish and kinda bland. AcctError96987 (3722) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 16, 2014
On draft at Milwaukee Ale House.
The beer is copper with a small, off-white head. Fruity aroma with some yeast, bread. Too sweet, no funk presence. This is a saison? Odd flavor, some stone fruits and unusual earthy flavors. Not digging this one. And what’s with the name? There’s nothing "Booyah" about this one. Move along folks... NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2012
Draft at Milwaukee Brewing. Pours a hazed deep gold with orange highlights and a fluffy white head that persists. Nose is strange. Not a great Belgian profile, clovey and peppery but also kind of vegetal and banana. Some pilsner malt as well. On tasting, pretty dry and somewhat malty but again the yeast is strange. A weird appley note and some old bananas. Okay but doesn’t really work for me.
