Bomber from Made In Oregon. Pours copper with a fizzy/creamy near-white head. Aroma is orange mostly, but a deep inhale brings up a little earthyness. Pretty foamy in the mouth. Its dry, earthy, peppery, has some orange zest. The dusty earthy aspect comes out stronger towards the finish, which is a bit peppery. Its a little unusual, but Id say more saison than anything else. Could have used a bit more spice.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Bottle:   Caramel colored, orange hued, moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Spritzy orange peel and zest up front, slightly floral but very minor and fleeting.   Has a slight soapy aspect, fragrant you might say.   Aroma reminds me of citrus zest but also with a bit of spice to it, like a candle.   Not bad, but hard to pinpoint.   Somewhat floral, but a little astringent.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Seems a little rough.   I can appreciate what they were going for, but seems a little off the mark.

"Dry, citric and tart seems like an accurate description to me. Good saison. Light farmhouse in the aroma with hints of fruit that really come out in the flavor, as does the bone dry body and light pepper. I could drink lots of this. Not lacking in flavor at 5.5%."

Golden orange in color, hazy with a thin off white head. Added Orange peel and blood orange juice added to the farm house ale. Tasty sweet and very dry in the finish. Nice malt build and added fruit flavors. Very good beer. Nice additions to the Saison style.
