On draught at Caps & Corks. Dark amber in color, with a distinct saison character. Blood orange is apparent but not over-powering.

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.

riversideAK (5560) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Nose of orange peel, some orange fruit notes, a little yeast esters, pepper, a touch of hay. Pours orange amber, white head and lace. Flavors of blood orange up front, a little peel, hay, pepper, and light yeast esters. Nice carbonation, almost quenching. Good use of citrus, natural, solid fruit beer.

cmonster (954) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 24, 2011
Wax sealed bomber served in a tulip. Hazy burnt orange in color with a huge off-white head. Good retention, minimal lace. Saison aromatics. Bright coriander, spice, orange peel, lime and white pepper. Light sweet flavor of tart lime. Light-medium bubbly body, thin creamy texture, and a acidic and dry finish. Quite nice.

bhensonb (10359) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 23, 2012
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. It’s dry, earthy, peppery, has some orange zest. The dusty earthy aspect comes out stronger towards the finish, which is a bit peppery. It’s a little unusual, but I’d say more saison than anything else. Could have used a bit more spice.

(22oz bottle) Pours a clear golden body with a medium white head. Aroma of orange, grass, minerals, florals, and pepper. Flavor of pepper, orange, florals, and yeast.

Orange, hazy with ruby hue, thin white head. Aroma of toasty malt with a light sour note, mild spicy yeast character. Flavor features spicy yeast, some blood orange citrus acidity, finishes mildly tart. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

poisoneddwarf (1622) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - APR 5, 2013
UPDATED: APR 6, 2013 Red wax-dipped bomber. Pours hazy copper with a long-sustaining off-white soapy head. Aroma is citrusy, SweeTarts. Taste is a little tart and finishes bitter. Belgian yeast, an earthiness, along with lots of orange in flavor. Mouthfeel is too foamy for me, body is medium to thin. Not too bad, but definitely not what I was hoping it would be. I have to admit, the horror movie lover in me was drawn to the label.

Gription79 (2158) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Poured from a 22ounce bottle. Citrusy, caramel, some spicy phenols, slight tartness, grainy finish. Pours light brown, not an appealing color. Finishes dry with a very thin mouth feel.

Hophazard (193) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 7, 2011
Esters and belgian funk with a barnyard woodiness. A transparent copper with diminishing head. A mild fruitiness that quickly evolves into a dry finish. A decent amount of carbonation aids the crispness. A spicy farmhouse ale with slight tartness supplied by the oragnes. Great twist to the style that works.
