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 isn’t 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 doesn’t really pop. Overall I’m a little let down by this beer, but it’s not too bad. Would probably pass on purchasing again, even at the $6.19 price I got the bomber for.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2014 Bottle courtesy of rlgk. Pours tiny hazy pale golden with a big frothy white head that leaves some spotty trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is tiny fruity and slightly phenolic with crackers, watermelon rinds, white pepper corns, dry soil, hay and lemon zest. Taste is fruity and tiny phenolic with crackers, pineapple, watermelon rinds, hay, dry soil, white pepper corns, lemon zest and hints of alcohol. Mouthfeel is crisp, dry and light to medium bodied. Finish is slightly fruity and tiny phenolic with crackers, watermelon rinds, dry soil, hay, white pepper corns and lemon zest. Solid modern non-funky saison… Nicely dry and hoppy but could have done without the slight alcohol burn.

All of flavors of the style with out being overpowering. Clear straw and persistently effervescent. A great introduction to a saison for someone not familiar with the style.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale, hazy straw yellow with a billowing white head. Sour and funk in the aroma which follow into the flavor in a very delicious and balanced way. The saison taste is clear and pungent but not in an overpowering way. Dry hay texture and white pepper on the tongue with more citrus bitterness and lemon tartness on top. Good medium body to this which helps support all the flavor swirling around. Easy to drink but very flavorful.
