22 oz bomber. Pours a beautiful hazy golden color, with a pearly white head. Some lacing. Aroma is yeasty banana and clove. Flavor is a pleasant combination of bread and fruit, with cidery notes. The palate is lively, with a nice finish. Overall a great seasonal offering from my favorite Seattle brewery.

Good saison. All the notes one expects are there. I'm surprised how European this tastes, but for the seemingly usual American lack of carbonation. Solid B. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Off orange appearance. No head Bit of citrus and lemon zest on the nose. Wheat and rye as well Pretty sweet like lemon meringue on the tongue. Bitter bit fleeting with citrus and honey. Maybe a bit of cedar forward notes and floral hibiscus

Can shared by Skyview - thanks!! Light yellow pour with a white head. Fruity apple nose and subtle Belgian spices. Nice fruity flavor and slightly bitter finish. Nice!

ACHops (594) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Growler from the brewery. Pours golden yellow with medium white head. Aroma is spicy dry floral notes with some fruit as well. Taste is crisp dry light malt with a yeasty; slightly sweet, peppery finish. Their description is spot on - I could see this appealing to a white wine drinker. Easy drinking, particularly for the abv. Interesting take on a fall seasonal, most breweries head in the opposite direction from this... nice changeup this time of year. Not sure the name suits this one well though... I think most people will anticipate something else entirely.

BrewDad (4632) - Olympia, USA - OCT 25, 2011
Light golden in color, hazy with a thin head. Cloves, light fruit aroma and flavors. I get the spices coming out very nice and the malts add to the flavor. Dry and crisp this was a very good Saison.

bhensonb (10345) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Bomber from Malt and Vine. Pours orange gold with a foamy white head. Aromas of earth, fruit and citrus. And clove. Med body. Flavor is distinctly earthy, with light pitted fruit and citrus, followed by fairly insistent clove. Dry and crisp is a fair descriptor. Drinks easy.

Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2012
Tap at Fremont, Seattle - 08/11/12. Clear pale golden with a thin white head that soon clears to the edge and forms a pond. Nose is pale malts, spice, cloves, pumpkiny/earthy tones, some light sourness. Taste follows, slightly tarte, earthy fruit tones, apples, light caramel. Medium bodied with soft carbonation leading to a light bitter finish. Decent.

Pours hazy yellow, finger white head. Smell citrusy lemon zest and a bit rustic. Taste orangy, citrus, peppery, slight tang. Sweet and easy drinking. Good fall beer.
