3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy yellow color on the pour. White head that dissipated very quickly. Aroma isnít the best; banana, touch of clove, and unfortunately, some kind of medicinal, almost vegetable smell. Taste is much better. No veggies, but a light pepper flavor, some citrus, clove. Average body that doesnít really pop. Overall Iím a little let down by this beer, but itís not too bad. Would probably pass on purchasing again, even at the $6.19 price I got the bomber for.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light golden under a thick foamy white head. Big funky nose of white wine, earthy Belgian esters, black pepper, leafy grassy hops, lemon rind, and a kiss of stone fruit. Smooth and mellow flavor that has that lemon and grassy tones from the nose with an added bit of dusty Belgian ester, light white wine (probably from hops Iíd imagine) and a cool mellow saison finish. Really damn pleasant.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: slightly hazy straw with two fingers of rocky light ivory head, excellent retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: citrus zest, white grape must, hay, white pepper, light barnyardy funk. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter and peppery spice, light funk. (8/10) Medium-light body, moderate carbonation, off-dry mild bitter and lightly funky finish. (4/5)
A nice Saison, even if it is really too high in ABV to be considered ďin-spec.Ē And itís a touch sweet, but all in all, itís pretty decent. Light, clean, and pleasant to drink. I wouldnít serve it too cold, though - straight out of the fridge, this would be pretty mild, maybe to the point of blandness, but it opens up nicely as it warms. Then the 7.5% ABV comes along and whacks you in the back of the head with a baseball bat. So, all good, right? (16/20)

650 ml bottle. Slightly hazed golden pour, few fingers of fluffy white head. Great retention, Good lacing. Spicy and floral yeast notes and doughy malt in the aroma. Slightly spicy taste (fair bit of pepper) leads into a light tart finish, nicely balanced by moderate to strong hop bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle pours a slightly hazy golden color with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is lemon with some wine grapes and yeast notes. Taste is a light lemon tartness with a fruity and malty sweetness finishing with some yeast and peppery notes. Light to medium bodied with adequate carbonation. Overall, a little sweet for the style, but still a very inviting brew that must be sampled. Recommended.
