Lift Bridge Brewing Company is one of the few breweries that launched before the craft beer craze hit the Twin Cities, and now the Stillwater company is among a small handful making the transition into a regional player. Now available in New Jersey, exclusively at Bottle King, Lift Bridge offers four year round brews plus an impressive portfolio of seasonal and limited releases. One of their year round offerings is a Saison by the name of Farm Girl.
The beer pours a hazy pale straw yellow color. The thin white head dissipates quickly and leaves behind a light sticky lacing on top. Tons of tiny champagne like bubbles are visible rising in the glass.
Aromas of yeast and fruity esters dominate the nose. Grainy aromas and wheat notes mingle with the yeast. Banana and spice notes, dominated by clove and pepper, are also notable along with a hint of citrus and floral aromas.
On the palate yeast, sweet grains and wheat notes dominate with a slighty grassy tone. The spice notes from the bouquet are detectable on the palate as well. Fruit notes of citrus and stone fruits add complexity. Farm Girl is dry and refreshing despite a slightly sweeter taste than many saisons.
A great session beer from Lift Bridge. Perfect for warmer days or when you want to enjoy an easy drinking ale. Although this is great all on its own, try pairing this one with some aged Chèvre, Red Curry Shrimp or peach cobbler.
