probstblueribbon (2871) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2011
Bomber from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Bright golden with a frail white head (Champagne-like). Aroma: A lot of yeast and bread dough, certainly peachy, fruity, some pleasant floral notes, honey-like sweetness, some playful esters, biscuit, hints of herbal green notes, some spiciness and alcohol, a ”churched up” Belgian Ale...pretty good. Palate: Medium body, elegant effervescence, smooth. Flav.: Biscuit, yeast, bread dough, coriander, floral notes, sweet fruity notes, certainly some peach/apricot, almost candy-like (Fuzzy Peaches), playful esters, a touch spicy, a bit of green hops, more biscuit, honey, soft, approachable malts with some decoration; sweet with sufficient bitterness and brightness for balance, a warm, alcoholic finish with pleasant fruity malts and flowers.

As I read over my notes, I’m suspecting power of suggestion maybe have had an impact. Nevertheless, tasty beer.

Cloudy yellow color. Belgian yeast. Light sweet with wheat and coriander. Sweet finish, but alcohol is a little too high, which is to be expected from Avery.

rader58 (774) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - MAY 2, 2011
22oz bottle. Pours a clear pale golden color. Aroma of citrus, nutmeg, pepper, peach and floral. Flavor is peach, orange, spice, lavender. Nice and easy drinking, but nothing spectacular. With that said, it is good.

dmac (3919) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 7, 2011
22 oz bomber from Jonathan Ron shared at jcwattsrugger’s. Poured an ugly greenish-yellow with an average to large fizzy white head. Aroma of cloves, green bananas, pepper and wet bread. Nice palate with a medium body and just slightly srong carbonation. Fruity flavor along with yeast, bread, cloves, corriander and white pepper. This is rather good for a saison which is one of my least favorite styles.

SirADNielsen (8949) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 1, 2011
Bottle @ home. Hazy yellow-orange appearance with a white head. Floral, yeasty, wild Belgian ale nose. Floral, mildly hoppy, somewhat wheaty, yeasty, citrusy, wild Belgian ale flavor. Yeasty, sweet, light fruity finish. A more floral flavor than most saisons but is done quite well.

unclemattie (4135) - Georgia, USA - MAR 21, 2011
22oz bottle. Slght hazy, orange color. Sparkling wine appearance, big fizzy bubbles, white foam of large bubbles. Aroma of fermented honey, some white tree fruit, mostly yeast. Flavor has a touch of fruit, honey, and bread; all very distant. Over aged, still drinkable, but 2 years old.

daleharshman (888) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 14, 2011
Bomber purchased almost two years ago at South Bay Drugs ($7.99). Pours a murky yellow-amber with a couple fingers of very active foam that soon dissipates. Aroma of Belgian yeast, lemon, cherry, phenols, and a hint of funk (cheese). Flavor of honey, light caramel, and fruit (peach - yes, and also some light grape and lemon). Good flavor with a nice level of sweetness, but there’s a small late Band Aid phenolic flavor that is not pleasant. Prickly carbonation and a semi-dry finish. A different kind of saison, but one that I generally liked except for the phenolic presence. (309, 480)
