Hazey, mild copper color. Small amount of bubbling given the style. One finger head after the pour and some foam retention for all twelve ounces.

Tart cracker and malt with hints of apple vinegar. Smells tart, earthy, and maybe infected in a bad way.

Tart from start to finish. Green apple vinegarLight bread and cracker malts. Maybe some grassy hops. Earthy, tart, doesn't taste like a saison done right. I've had great tasting, tart, saisons. This is not one of them.

Clear with a healthy head over a deep gold color, not as pale straw as others, noticeably deeper and darker.
The aroma and flavors are very lightly white pepper, some alcohol, and biscuit like malts, and is a bit heavy bodied for the style, and lower in carbonation then i would like. It is not bad tasting but lacks the depth that a lot of the renowned saisons i normally drink have, and needs more peppery spice or straw dirty notes, and a crisper body to liven it up. Maybe the body alone would do the trick, i think that is really the main thing holding this one back.

but hey, this is a $10 6/pack saison, and i have had worse bomber saisons before, so it is doing alright and middle of the road.

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.

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.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

How does this beer not sell better among the frat set? Anyway, it pours a clear brass topped by over a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises cracked wheat, very light Belgian yeast, a pinch of clove, and a vague sense of some sort of citrus fruit. The taste emphasizes the spiciness of the yeast, though admittedly in a subdued manner, but everything pretty much stays relatively static. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, a decent beer, but a really boring, unexciting, and painfully average example of the farmhouse style.

3.21/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Serving type: 12-ounce bottle. No freshness date.

Appearance: Poured into a tulip. The color is deep gold or pale-ish copper. Two fingers of off-white head leaves a skim and thin ring around the edge.

Smell: It is definitely a saison, but it is much more spicy than funky. Pepper and herbal spice dominate and there is a hint of funk. Perhaps it is just my imagination but I also smelled a splash of zest.

Taste: The spice from the smell is present but not as dominant. The pepper, herbs, and funk are countered by pale malts. There is a hint of rye as well, and also the splash of zest.

Drinkability: Very drinkable and tasty. I would prefer a little more funk but think it is still pretty tasty.
