Bomber. Thanks, Nate. Very unusual nose of citrus zest, celery, yeast, and white pepper -- almost like a nasal spray effect. Light straw color. Wheaty initial, with tangerine zest, pepper, light orange juice, and light bittering infinish. Thin-medium body. Unusual and intense aromas. The citrus zest is astounding. Flavors mix citrus and a light vegetal character. Unique.

bottle. Nose of citrus, creamy wheat, lemon, grapefruit, a bit of funky orange juice gone off. Deep gold with orange, tall, fine head. Creamy wheat and orange flavor, zest. Very very soft, silky body. High carbonation but soft. Zest bitterness. Very unique but also strange. Hard to drink a lot.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice and not too dessert-like. Floral, tart and citrus aromas. Pretty light golden color with shades of orange. Light and carbonated palate. Flavor was fruity and matched the aromas but not too sweet. Saison and wheat character.

Golden color sprouts swirls of white lace. Bretty plus orange zest; little strong on the pith / bitterness for me.

Pours a cloudy orange color with white head. Oranges, citrus, and some floral notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with just a touch of sweetness.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pleasant aroma of lavender and citrus but ends up tasting a bit too much like potpourri for me.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(750ml bottle) hazy golden pour, fine white bubbles and nice lacing. Nose is beautiful, lavender, perfumey, citrus zest, honey, ridiculous complexity. Taste is not as good, bitter orange, earth, herbal, weird.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy gold, thin white ring, oily cap. Perfume and peach bitterness, peppery with heavy bitterness. Heavy perfume and dough front, light grain and dominating citric lemon zest mid before lotion heavy finish, well balanced if overly estery.
