Bottle poured into an oversized duvel tulip.
A - Hazy peach amber color. Small white head that hangs around.
S - Has a pleasantly spiced clove nose but not spicy. A little bit of caramel sweetness with a some banana esters. A hint of some early brett characteristics. Not really tart our sour.
T - Has a bit of sweetness with no real indication of hops. Some spicy yeast notes finish.
M - Really great high carbonation is nice a lively on the tongue. Medium to light in body.
O - Thought the beer was different than other saisons I have had due to an abundance of crystal malts used. I enjoyed the caramel flavors but thought it was a bit sweet and not as sessionable as other light summer saisons.

(Served in a tulip glass)
A- This beer pours a clear caramel body with a swirling carbonation of big bubbles and a spongy white head that sticks to the glass before sliding back into the beer.
S- The fruit cocktail and yeasty aroma is full even during the pour.
T- The dry carbonic acid and fruit cocktail esters blend with pale malt and corn in the dry finish. There is a dry candy note that lingers a moment after the finish. The corn does take on more of a sweetness as it opens but the finish stays dry.
M- The light mouthfeel has a scrubbing fizz that grows as it opens and no alcohol heat.
O- This beer has a nice fruity ester flavor with a dry crisp body and some interesting candy notes. It is not a typical saison but it does have some interesting floral notes.

Received as a gift from my sister-in-law...poured straight from the refrigerator (about 40º) into a standard pint glass.
A=Nice dark gold color...first pour had a very foamy off-white head that lingered. Merky appearance, as if no or minimal filtration.
S=Well...some sweetness, but the aroma also reminded me of the smell of a frat house after a party the night before...and urine.
T=Reminds me of a weiss...some sour notes, and a tang. Paired with chili...I was expecting more of a cream ale. The lightness made the sour taste bearable. I am not overly familiar with saisons, but this is too much like a weiss...plus the sourness is not that enjoyable. After letting the second half warm up to about 50º, the flavor enhanced, and the sourness seemed to drop off.
M=Overall, not that bad...light carbonation and medium light body...the sourness makes it hard to classify as a session beer, however.
O=If you like weiss beers, you may wish to try this. As for me, I am glad I tried it, but would not purchase it.

12 oz bottle poured into a MKE tulip.
6.5% ABV, 20 IBUs
A - Booyah rushes into the glass quietly despite a tall pour, settling to a deep golden to light amber color with nice clarity but a low faint ivory head. Moderate retention leaves little lacing on the glass.
S - Booyah's yeasty aroma quickly gives the impression of sludgy homebrew yeast settled to dormancy. A swirl captures some of the caramel and Munich-like malt sweetness that creates the backbone for this beer, a good distraction from the yeast scent while white pepper and lemongrass spiciness pull through the back end with a kiss of apricot fruitiness for a good finish.
T - Malt forward, Booyah explores dry biscuit, sweet caramel, and grainy pale malt all at once before shifting towards a more agreeable yeast flavor profile than what the aroma offers; more spice esters and fruit nuances than "yeast" flavor. These esters follow the nose with white pepper, clay, and lemongrass; an earthy mélange that pairs well with the notes of dried apricot and white grape skin.
M - Plenty of maltiness creates a bigger body for this saison, leading into a smooth feel and mildly dry finish with a small suggestion of noble hop bitterness on the back end.
O - Milwaukee's Booyah has an aroma that suggests average homebrew, something below par for what this brewery normally outputs, but the flavor and feel certainly manage to shift away from the straight yeast nose, resulting in a fine drinking beer with a body that's perfect for the cooler fall days.
