Hazy gold, with decent, creamy, white head / Medium body, sweet, some sourness, decent balance with lightly bitter finish / Flavors of sour malt, banana, spice, and caramel / Below average. drdisque (877) - Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2014
From a bottle poured in a shaker. Pours slightly cloudy ruby. Very malty with an odd juiciness and strangely lacking in spice. Not bad but a little too weird to really recommend. Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - DEC 3, 2014
12oz. bottle. Aroma of malt sweetness, big yeast profile with notes of honey, caramel, tons of clove, fruity esters, spice and some very faint grassy, herbal hop. Clear medium amber in color, no head whatsoever (although the glass was wet). Flavor profile shows some citrus, caramel sweetness, honey, plenty of spice, grainy malts, toasty and full, bitterness is mild overall, Some tea leaf flavors in the finish, amidst the clove and banana. Carbonation is low, somewhat thin in feel and with a medium body. Not like anything I’ve had before! troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2015
[Bottle] Orange colored pour with a fizzy head on top. Aromas of yeast, floral notes and light spice. Clean flavors of sweet caramel malts, spicy hops, yeasty phenols and lemongrass. Lively carbonation. Sweet and yeasty finish. Good, but not a very complex saison. AWISLguy (3283) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle at Chancery in Mequon. Pours orangey brown with little head and leaving little lacing. Aroma has some floral fruit and some earthy old beer store. Taste is of spice, including some coriander, and some citrus fruit with straw. Finishes fairly quickly and dry. An easy drinker on a hot day and about what I was expecting as a "saison". More earthy than I would have hoped.

Great looking beer. Smells fruity and tart. This beer has a bunch of complex fruit flavors and spices, clove and stuff. A little dirty but good.

12 oz. bottle, consumed on 6-14-14. Labeled as "MKE Booyah Farmhouse Ale." Fruity, sweet aroma features scents of caramel, orange, lemon, butter, farts, heavy cream just starting to go bad, vinegar, and dust. Some tonic water-like dryness in the aroma. Smells like boozy white grape juice or cheap, strong, Eastern European white wine. A touch of Band-Aid chemical quality to the smell. Pours bronze with a small amount of grayish beige head. Light to moderate effervescence. Nice color. Liquid is mostly clear but with a lot of very tiny suspended particles that create some haze. Herbal, spicy, vegetal, dry taste features flavors of lemon juice, caramel, alcohol, Christmas-y spices (spruce tips, pumpkin spice), pumpkin, black pepper, celery, apple cider, shortbread cookie with caramel or Twix without the chocolate, and spicy meat. Dull, dry aftertaste. Medium body. Frothy in the palate. Unremarkable palate effects. Booyah is a decent beer, but it probably could have used more time in the bottle to develop (I purchased this only about a week ago, and I don’t have any reason to believe it was sitting on the shelf for long). It is enjoyable beyond what this score likely indicates. It seems to have been crafted in a heavy-handed way, without a soft touch. It is also a little sweeter than ideal in aroma and flavor. Ultimately it is more interesting than it is good. There is a lot to it, but it doesn’t all come together all that well. On the other hand, it is far from a disaster.

Bottled. Poured medium golden with a colossal white head that never really went down. The aroma picked up yeasty notes, earth, and white pepper over pale and bready malts.. more yeasty on the back of the nose.. decent. The flavor found the same thick dose of yeast, with lemon zest, coriander, and cloves around.. spices were thick and quasi-enjoyable on the back. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation on the palate.. heavy on the spices and yeast.. overall drinkable, but far from great.
