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.
