3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bretty, bright yeast. Lemon citrus leads the way on the palate; funky & barnyardy, highly refined. As much as I give saisons crap, this is quite good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
1/20/13 notes: Bomber, $11.99 to celebrate MLK Day. Pours cloudy gold with a bubbly white head. Aroma of beautiful barnyard funk, bath minerals, pithy citrus, bit of wild flowers. Orval-ish. Body is medium, prickly, on the fuller side for Saison. Flavors actually mellow from the initial nose, makes sense given this is a relatively fresh bottle. Whole cream biscuits, malt sweetness with a kiss of herbal hops, lemon. Finish does not betray high ABV, smooth integration of earthy notes, nice yeast harmony. Great expression, obviously a high quality offering. Would love to try with a couple more years of age.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Erupting in it’s glass, the earthy sour aroma breathes from the tiny bubbled head. It tastes like spicy wet hops and fruit. It is flavorful and still extremely refreshing. It is one of my all time favorites. Strong smooth refreshing flavorful. Share with friends, only it they are good friends. People come back in hopes of trying another beer like this,

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pours out deep gold with a tan head of foam. The aroma has some apricot, hay, a touch of tartness and some sweeter sort of honey notes. The taste is nice and pretty deep and rich with apricot fruity notes, apricot skin tartness, a touch of yeasty saison like spices and faint funkiness off in the background. Tasty crisp easy going session like brew.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap. Hazy golden with a thin white head. Nice caramel, light citrus, grain, and light barnyard aroma. Bright lively but soft palate. Very nice orange, light lemon, Belgian candy sugar, and a pleasantly tart taste with sharp fruity finish. Very good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at DBS. Aroma is sorta lemony with wheat and Brett. Barely noticeable sweetness to pair with the lemon notes, honey components (yet not really sweet), dry Brett, an indistinguishable tartness, and a good amount of carbonation. Really good beer.
