look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

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.

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.

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.

(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.

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.

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 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.
