3.09/5  rDev -7.5%

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.

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.

3.53/5  rDev +5.7%

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.

(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.

2.53/5  rDev -24.3%

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.

3.76/5  rDev +12.6%

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.

12oz bottle, pours golden-orange, nice clarity, thin white head leaves no lacing on the glass. Fruity nose with Belgian yeasts. Tastes fruity up front: apple, pear, grape, Belgian yeast, faint spicy finish, good balance, flavors a little bleak. Body is thin, carbonation is moderate. Overall, good representation of the style.
