3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, big billowing white head, golden orange in color. The smell is spicy and fruit hop character, citrus, yeast, homebrew day, and good. Good lacing. The taste is lemon, citrus, yeast, raw hops, a little unrefined.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
It pours a hazy lemon-yellow with orange highlights; the head is off-cream and foamy. The aroma had notes of: rice koji, lemon-zest, slight barnyard, and apricots. The taste was medium sweet that finishes dry; there were notes of: sake, rice koji, lemon-zest, stewed apricots, yeasty characteristic, and alcohol. The palate was medium bodied, lively small-bubbled carbonation, and big-mouth feel. Overall, very unique, and definitely a merit able spin on the Saison style.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy orange-yellow. Nose is sweet and similar to DuPont. Taste is dry, crisp, over spiced. It’s a good effort and a solid beer but the spice really kills off a lot of the subtle grass and hay flavors I prefer in a saison.

Pours a hazy golden yellow with an effervescent white head that leaves minimal lace. Aroma of lemon peel, hay, and floral mixed with rosemary. Light citrus and barnyard of the non-funky variety, dry from the champagne yeast with a beautiful subtle-ness to the hop profile.

Sampled at STL RB Gathering - Pours hazy yellow with a moderate sized white head. The aroma has lemons, saison earthiness, powdery softness and husky graininess. Medium / light crisp body with sharp carbonation. The flavor begins with earthiness, light (if any) toast, powder, sharp citrus, melons and spiciness. The finish is more spicy and powdery with lots of Sorachi Ace. Good saison.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber pours very hazy gold with a full frothy head. Aromas of chapagne grapes and sweet white wine also some bright citrus like lemon or slight tangerine and a lot of grape. Flavor is sweet but very crisp tastes alot like white wine. Body is light to medium with some alcohol warmth. Finishes like wine also. Good Beer but i feel like the sorachi hop tropical flavor is lost in the overwhelming wine/grape taste
