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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub - Pours clear copper / orange with an off-white head. The aroma has blood orange pretty big, some stone fruit and toasty smooth malt. It has a medium / light body with lots of moderately intense carbonation. The flavor starts with light toasty malt, more earthy saison notes that the aroma, dry citrus and herbal tea. The finish has minerals and saison earth. Enjoyable.

"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%."
