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.

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!

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.
