Enjoyed a bomber with a friend on the patio after catching Jack White at Cain's Ballroom. It was a long night, all I remember is rating this and waiting to add comments later. I should have added comments then.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy copper color with a thick three fingers of head.
Smells like day-old bread, plum, overripe banana and pine.
Bold malt profile. Stays fairly non-sweet. A little bread, rye, sharp lemon.
A foamy texture with moderate carbonation.
I loved it. Great looking, smelling and tasting. Decently complex without being overbearing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber. Pours a cloudy, nearly opaque medium amber with a large white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is pepper, rye, some fruit. Flavor is lots of spicy, peppery rye, some earthy yeast, a generic fruitiness, some phenols and astringency. Moderately sweet, mild bitterness. The rye adds an interesting twist to a saison, but it also dominates it. Not much saison is left.

27-AUG-2012, bottle @Papsø.
Hazy orange with off-white head.
Saison-like spice aroma.
Taste is much more rye and malt. The rye has taken some of the freshness from the saison.
Rye bread and spice. Better on aroma than taste.
