12oz brown bottle, sample from the brewery.

"Farmhouse Ale" on the label, this is a friggin trend I wish would die now. Expressive carbonation produces a huge head, very lively. Smells of yeast, dried fruit, and alcoholic esters ... nothing meshing in the nose or palate. Some odd sweetness, fruity, grainy, and then yeasty. A bit of mess. This brew doesn't work for me at all, no real focus. Brewers that don't want to go all the way when doing Belgian style brews should steer clear of doing them. (501 characters)

(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. (778 characters)

Poured into a pint glass

Appearance: golden and hazy with a thin white head

Aroma: slight hints of wheat and pine, kinda musty

Palate: medium bodied, not very carbonated, not big alcohol noticed

Taste: huge funk flavors, bit wheat and some hop kick to it. Very impressed with this

Overall: best MBC beer ive had. This is an awesome brew. Must try! (352 characters)

Nice little farmhouse ale. I really found the subtle sourness pleasant. I purchased this as part of the MKE Brewing Co. Potluck pack. Would definitely purchase it again. (173 characters)

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. (1,019 characters)

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. (1,520 characters)
