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!

A very Robust saison that I really enjoy. Strong, earthy taste, lovely amber color, and a smooth smell of citrus with a touch of hops. When I first had this beer, I couldn't put it down. Best straight from the source. Get it on tap at the Milwaukee Ale House.

(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.

A beer I picked up in Wisconsin - Milwaukee Brewing's Booyah! This is a very tasty farmhouse ale. Great, long-lasting head on the pour from the bottle. The color is light amber, a little deeper than golden. On the first sip I detected a nice sourness, not too overwhelming but very pleasant. The finish is clean, with a lingering impression of the wild grapes we had growing on our property years ago, in September when they are ripe: slightly sweet but mostly sour. All together Deelicious!

I'm not typically a Saison fan, but this was so nice and smooth that it won me over.

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.
