Traditionally brewed seasonally in the barn and other farmhouse buildings, thus the name. This style almost died out due to the perception of being a “regular person’s beer” but was revived by craft and home brewers with the love of its diversified flavors. Cloudy amber color with some spicyness and earthy flavors from the yeast. This semi-dry, medium bitterness beer has been revitalized because of “regular people” loving great beer. This beer will go great with any hearty meal, particularly with meats (goes well with red meat and white meat, and even fish).

16 oz can. Pours a hazy, dark brownish-gold with a thick white head that dissipates rapidly leaving a patchy layer on the surface of the beer. Aroma is quite nice, yeasty, sweet, floral, spicy (clove), and fruity. Flavor is on the sweeter side initially, fruity and yeasty, followed by a long finish that is too bitter for the style. Palate is a bit harsh. Overall a decent beer, one I would certainly drink again, though I probably wouldn’t seek it out and would likely prefer another Saison over this if given the option.

On tap at the brew pub in Okoboji. Fairly good saison that has more of the earth elements than others.

16oz can from Beertopia in Omaha. Slightly cloudy amber colour, slight foamy head. Balanced spicy sweet flavours of malts and yeast. Moderate hop bitter. Very very good beer, good thing I bought a 4 pack.

Aroma is spices, malts, sweetness and mildly perfumed. The flavor is malts, medium tartness, light spices, a mildly off sourness and a tangy finish.

hazy, honey color, very thin head. aroma has notes of plastic, coriander, bubblegum. flavor has a sweet and sour thing going on. slight bitterness. herbal finish. Thin and not terribly interesting. Not for me.

From a 16 oz can. The body is a hazy rich copper with a whispy thin off white head. The funky nose has mango and leather. There is also some black pepper spice. There is also some caramel. This tastes fairly funky and tart. There is some fresh mangos and bitter grapefruit peels. There is also some salty leather. There is a lot of funk and tartness in this one. A decent brew, but the sour character is a little much for me.

Calling this a farmhouse ale is somewhat strange as it seems something in between that and a real sour ale. Less wheat and spice than pure Belgian yeast funk. Still, not bad.

CanIHave4Beers (4239) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUN 22, 2012
Pours a light orange color with a big head and great lacing on the glass.

The aroma is citrusy, a little soapy, mildly floral and has a bit of raw grainy malt.

The flavor has a good bit of citrus fruitiness, some crackery malt, and is largely dry. Banana and dusty flavors work well and the hoppiness is generally of the floral type. Very well balanced.

I had absolutely no expectation of this being even close to this good, what a pleasant surprise.
