Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours translucent orange with a fluffy white head. Smells of sweet grain with banana notes. Tastes of sweet grain with a little bit of banana, but not that bright. Beer is light bodied and easy drinking, good carbonation. Overall, an above average beer.

Ultimately there isn't much to make this stand out. It doesn't go beyond slightly bland from start to finish, but it's not offensive, so I can't rate it harshly. Still, there are better true 3's. 2010/07/21

An interesting brew with a hint of spiciness. 2010/11/05

The appearance of this beer is hazy yellow. The aroma is spicy with only a little bit of floral hops. The taste is sweet and with some clove and Belgian yeast spiciness. Medium body and with fairly intense carbonation. Overall, an easy to drink Saison.

It's sort of an orange yellow colour, kind of like Chinese gold. Topped with a half finger of whitish head that fades fast. Moderate, large bubbled, soda like carbonation, clear and filtered.

Smells of, lol, wet dog. Cardboard, Belgian Phenols, caramel and apples. Very kids soda like.

The taste follows the nose completely, the wet dog coming in at the end. Slightly more balanced and smooth than I was expecting from the nose though.

Has a very light body and is very much like a soda in it's carbonation.

I got this one in Kunming, China, and I'm drinking it in Chang Mai Thailand this longest day of the year, June 21, 2017. What can I say? Very light, very soda like, this brew is well named.

When I think of a farmhouse ale, I imagine something with a nice yeasty character and some spice on the nose and palate. It should have a medium mouthfeel, nice head retention, and a pleasant aftertaste with some lingering spiciness. It should not have an overpowering malt presence that detracts from the other characteristics. This one does not measure up by any of these criteria. I'm thinking this is not bottle conditioned, as the flavors, aromas, and carbonation seem quite underdeveloped. It's more like a simulation of a farmhouse ale than an actual one.

Poured from a 16 ounce can, it was light straw in color, some haze, with no head unless poured down the middle of the glass. Even then, it dissipated rapidly leaving nothing.

A hint of fruit in the nose invites a sip but some corn in the background.

Tasting some slight sweetness , very little farmhouse and a refreshing, almost citrus note that is palate cleansing.

Thoroughly enjoyed this beer on a warm spring afternoon.

Way too sweet to really be a saison/FA. The Brewer should add some pumpkin spice and sell it every fall to unsuspecting and unknowing consumers.

Pours hazy yellow with a white head, which has poor retention and leaves no lacing. The aroma corn, grain, and some sweetness. Not pleasant.

If anything, it tastes worse than it smells. This is supposed to be a farmhouse ale? There is corn, grain, some sweetness, and some lemon tartness. Doesn't taste like a farmhouse ale at all.

Light bodied with fizzy carbonation. Nothing to get excited about, and not worth trying again.

Slightly sweet with some citrus notes and a bit of a wheat taste to it i kinda expected to be a bit cloudy. Definitly not bad for the price. This is one of the better ones to come out of the minhas brewery.

Pours a rustic orange with h a one finger white head that the sissapates quickly. Has a very sweet, Rainey smell. A very sweet malt taste. There is not much money re a Han sweetness happening here. Is an easy drinker. Less than average but not awful. I could drink a few if I had to.

Bunch of haters! I visited their brewery and sampled a wide variety of their many craft beers. I left with a case of "Lazy Mutt" which is very drinkable. It does finish "a little "chamganey" but I like that.

Second to last one from the tour variety pack...
Poured into shaker pint; golden straw color with a half-finger clear white head that fades in seconds to a fizzy film of bubbles fed by small, lively carbonation.
Smell is almost the same as all their other ones; smells like light corn and sugar, but it does have a vinous, champagne-like scent.
Taste is all corn and sugar, nothing else. Same sickly-sweet Minhas finish, the vinous quality of the smell isn't present at all in the taste. This is NOT a saison.
Mouthfeel is thin; the carbonation approaches saison but doesn't reach the proper level.
Overall, it's sugary corn-water, that's all this is. If you like generic cheap beer, you could probably stomach this, but if you're looking for a saison, stay away from this one.
