    I picked up a can of this as part of a mixed sixer a while back and was pleasantly surprised. Not a mind-blowing Farmhouse/Saison, but better than average I'd say (though it may have the worst label I've ever seen on a beer). It is the only beer I've had from Okoboji Brewing Co and I was honestly expecting it to be bad. What are others thoughts on this beer? Are other the OBC beers worth trying?

    I actually really liked this beer quite a bit.

    The only other one I've had from them was their Winter Games Stout which I thought was quite tasty. Had a nice black licorice component.

    We tried all of their beers last week. First time since they started actually brewing themselves. All had prominent lacto infections, oxidation, and the cans were all short fills. Hopefully they will fix these problems.

    The ones I had were prior to this. Done by Great River I believe.
