On tap @ the ‹ber Tap Room in the Wisconsin Cheese Shop, Milwaukee. Light amber colour. Lightly grainy and toasty, soft spice, low bitterness. Saison? Strange. fiveacestx (970) - Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2015
Bottle - ruby red, a fruity nose and apricot flavor. Yeasty and farmhouse-like but not what I would consider to be a good saison. Frank (4172) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2012
Not quite sure Iíd 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. Lotís of them taste like this. Itís a nice golden amber color but w/ only a short lasting head. Itís 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 itís 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, Iíd say. Whether it is actually a saison is a point of debate but it doesnít have to be a saison to be a good beer. cbfobes (2883) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JUL 3, 2012
On tap at Old Fashioned, pours a clear golden with a thin head, the aroma has some fruity touches and yeast, the flavor has a ton of barnyard funk with must, kind of dirty tasting, really didnít dig this one all that much. brian60625 (746) - Illinois, USA - JUL 26, 2012
12 ounce bottle as shown. On that topic, I love the bottle design. Itís a sort of joke, or a sad, dual personality flop. On the one hand, thereís a bland label, something that may get produced from the Microsoft "Beer Label Making Wizard," if there were such a thing. On the other hand, thereís a name thatís starved for attention. "Booyah," set it down with a *thud*. So which personality will the beer itself have? Thee label or the name? Unfortunately, the beer matches the personality of the lame label design. Itís bubbly, run-of-the mill, fruit and citrus flavored saison. Subtle fruit aroma, orange color. Itís easy drinking, but nothing to recommend to others.

Bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber with a creamy off-white head. Slightly sour fruity aroma. A pungent spicy kick to the flavor with a perfumy aromatic character that is unique, but not necessarily pleasant. Lacks the tart brightness of a good farmhouse ale. Too highly carbonated. mrjaxson (574) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 29, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2013 Lots of different aromas (spruce and pepper) and tastes (bitter and sour) going on here. Nothing overwhelmingly successful, but in MKE you always appreciate the effort! GJF (1520) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - JUL 16, 2014
On tap at the brewhouse. The aroma wasnít too great. Some decent flavors and spiciness to it, but pretty thin. notalush (5866) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 14, 2013
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.
