COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our rich and refreshing Saison fashionably suited the Bad Water identity by complexly adding a new age splash to this traditional style. The dynamic experience of our Saison is deeply rooted in our coveted recipe, developed with equal blend of art and science. Subtle peppery notes over a boatsful but not overpowering European hop yields a truly dynamic nose. A light grain bill of mostly Pilsner malts against an atypical yeast strain maintains the beers lightness for continued enjoyment with a fortifying flavor.

Orange hue, light hazy clarity with mostly diminishing fizzy off-white head. Virtually no lacing. Spice (cinnamon), light citrus, light malt and floral aromas. Heavy spice taste up front with more of a citrus, floral and some light spice finish. Mild carbonation, crisp on the palate.

crazyvin (1990) - New York, USA - OCT 3, 2014
Poured a clear copper color with a thick slightly off white head that had nice retention. Aroma was of soft banana and light grains. Initial flavor had some nice sweet malts to it which was unexpected. Esters were pleasant. Carbonation seemed lacking, but otherwise easy to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz pour into pint glass. Deep copper clear colour. Carbonation was ok, but light for a saison. Slightly spicy and sharp. Taste was not good.. there is a sharp metallic taste that dominates. Medium body. Wont buy again.

Beer of month club. Pours a very attractive amber color with thin white head into tulip glass. Aroma is of spice, yeast and maybe a little brown sugar. Taste is some caramel and some spice. Not usually a saison fan but this is easy to drink and good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DMLINAZ (303) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Nice, light, respectable saison. From a bottle into a tulip style glass. Super foamy at first. Aroma is light but standard saison, slight fruit. Starts like a wheat with hints of saison and citrus. Ends with a pleasant kick with pepper and light spice notes. Some hops throughout.

rondphoto (2269) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Clear medium amber with a solid, long-lasting head and a thick band of lace. Taste is grassy malt matched by light flowery hops moving together through a lightly pepper-y finish. Unassuming, easy-to-drink, but 6% abv is a little high for such a light entry.

The twist cap low fill 12oz bottle pours with a clear copper body that supports a thin dirty white head of foam. The modest aroma offers up some sugar sweetness, stale earthy basement and then a bit of pear to apple esters and the odd Saison like spiciness sort of here and there. The taste is a little spicy and getting a touch cracked black pepper too. It then gets sweet with pear and a dash of ripe banana. It leaves behind a faint yeasty film in my mouth.

Rusty (1537) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours a murky brownish yellow with a thick sticky off white head. Aroma is cereal banana and spices. Flavor is banana cloves metal esthers and spices. Nice to see nimbus crank out this style but it isnt quite as well put together as Id hoped.

Drank from 12 oz bottle poured into snifter. Aroma- beautiful aroma of coriander and spice. Very nice. Appearance- golden orange with light carbonation and light heavy. Taste- very clean. Orange zesty with some pepper. Palate- not a overwhelming taste but still nice. Overall- very good and drinkable saison but not enough umph to get higher score

On draft at OHSO. Slightly hazy yellow golden color. Nice aroma of yeast, wheat, faint spice. Flavors similar- big wheat flavors in the middle, a little hoppier than a typical saison. Ends nicely w/ a dry, peppery taste.
