2.73/5  rDev -17.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Decided to try this since they had it at a restaurant with limited selection.

Color is nice. Slightly hazy.

Aroma is lacking. Some yeast Esters.

Taste is ok. It has a slight smoky taste to it. Clearly made with too much crystal malt, rather than trying to make real beer. Like a rookie homebrewers first attempt.

Mouth feel is appropriate.

Overall it's drinkable. I keep trying to find a milwaukee brewing beer that is good. This one isn't bad, so let's call it the skinny kid at fat camp.

On to the next Milwaukee brew, this one a self-described Farmhouse Ale. Makes sense to pour it into a Belgian glass, right? No ABV listed, and as free of gobbledygook as all the rest of their labels.

But before we start, "Booyah"? I don't know if I've heard a dumber name for a beer in recent times. It used to be a marines saying, right? But now it's adopted by the bros and dbags. Not a good sign.

Clear amber appearance, slim head.

Aroma: soft, slightly (ever-so slightly) spicy, Belgian yeast and malt. They're going in the right direction. It at least feels like they know what they're doing.

Taste: light bodied, with stone fruit (apricot, peach) and some citrus notes, sweet malt,and more of the distinctive saison yeast. Ends with more sweetness lingering on the palate than it should. Lower attenuation in this one? It ought to be crisper, cleaner, drier. Bubblegum is starting to show up, or at least a hint of it.

In all, a misguided, but well-meaning, attempt at a saison ("let's call it Farmhouse Ale so we don't scare anyone way.") Perhaps better than Lift Bridge Farm Girl, but not by much.

I just know that I much be calling for a Booyah at the bar any time soon.

I was skeptical, but this beer is fantastic. It's balanced but still interesting enough to make you want more. I love how light but flavorful it is at the same time.Normally, I don't like ales whatsoever, but this one is sooo good. I first tasted it at the brew tour, and have now picked up a six pack weekly ever since!

His ideas of individual overcoming and transcendence beyond structure and context have had a profound impact on late-twentieth and early-twenty-first century thinkers, who have used these concepts as points of departure in the development of their philosophies, as seen in the social and political thought of Roberto Mangabeira Unger.[45][46][47]

3.53/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours copper-to-amber with creamy off-white head. Thin lines of lacing stick down the glass.

The smell is of tropical fruits - banana and mango with lemongrass and a hint of peppery spice. Fruity and spicy, but not really "funky".

The taste is of tropical fruits - banana and mango, as in the smell - with caramel candy. It has a firm caramel malt backbone with a spicy touch. Sweet with some black pepper in the finish.

It is spritzy and smooth - not quite effervescent. It becomes creamy as it progresses.

Not quite a classic Farmhouse ale, but it has a pleasant fruitiness to it and some spicing to it. The caramel and pepper are a tad bit too much for it, but it turns out to be a decent brew.

Pours pale golden in color. There is a 1 finger with foamy head tha dissipates into a thin film across the top.

There is a straw like malt in the nose with some apple like fruity esters and a some tart saison Belgian yeasty notes.

There are more apple like fruity esters in the tast along with some slightly tart Belgian funk and a slight metallic taste.

Mouthfeel is good, medium body and moderate to light carbonation give this a slightly sticky feel.

A: Deep gold with a 2 finger off-white head. Fizzy pour.

S: A spicy saison flavor with a bit of fruit note to my nose, but I probably have no clue.

T: I still got a fruity note mixed with the malt and that fruit stayed sweet through a dry finish.

M: Lacks heat or punch there is a definite fizz to this beer.

O: An ok saison but doesn't have much of a punch. Crisp but not much to write home about.
