timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Bottle from Safeway in Port Angeles. Nose has lots of hops...DIPA-like...for a saison??? Idk, good bubbles, but a rough mouthfeel. I'm still hung up on being disappointed in the saison, err, IPA I bought. Ok beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

theisti (3184) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - NOV 8, 2012
22 oz bomber courtesy of bvc. The pour is a light haze orange golden, with a smallish white head. The aroma is strong citrus fruity herbal, floral, with phenolic yeast. Behind that is wheat grain, and a general grassiness. The taste is hay grass up front, followed by the citrus fruit herbal, with wheat towards the finish, and a touch of fruit in the back. A bunch going on in the taste. The palate is medium bodied, a low level of carbonation, and lingering grain yeast finish. As the beer warms, the after taste reveals just a hint of pepper. Thanks for sending this my way Brandon.

poisoneddwarf (1684) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Bomber. Pours hazy copper with a large cream-colored head with great retention; leaves decorative lacework. Aroma is hoppy for a saison--woodsy, piney, floral, perfumey hops. Taste is more in line with the category. Along with the prominent aforementioned hops, Belgian yeast and an earthiness are noticeable. It starts out lightly sweet before becoming quite bitter. Mouthfeel is creamy. Pretty good.

Dogbrick (7634) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Sample at GABF 10/11/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking. Pours a clear pale orange color with a medium fizzy white head and short strings of lace. Aroma of citrus, yeast and spices. Medium body with flavors of lemon zest, yeast and touches of malt. The finish is sweet with a short yeast aftertaste. Decent overall.

TheBeerGod (5177) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle. Amber bodied with a tall, thick, frothy white head. Aroma is floral and citrus hops, citrus fruit, hop oils and dusty yeast. Taste is floral hops, citrus fruit, hop resins, dusty yeast, straw and earthy hops. Body is medium with a lighter than expected carbonation. It’s more on the soft and creamy side. Lingering hop bitterness throughout. Ends with more floral hops, earthy notes, strong citrus, lighter tropical fruit notes, toasted malt, straw and dusty yeast.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Bomber from Total Wine, Durham. Nice cloudy gold pour, with medium carbonation and fairly sticky retention. The name gives a more or less accurate summation of what the beer’s about: a fairly basic, if competent, yeasty saison backed up by a fuckload of hops. Grassy as hell, ripe and at times aggressive. Occasional citrus notes peek through but it’s going in one direction and you’re in the way.

bhensonb (10750) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy dark gold with a 3 finger creamy/foamy tan head. Lots of hop. Seems floral and resin. Earthy as well. Med + body. Starts with lots of hop. Many types, but they leave with bubble gum behind. Then it goes earthy, fruity citrus. This stuff suggests Belgian, but has really cool hops. And it is earthy beneath it all. Delicious, brilliant, effing great ale. Complex to me.

AmEricanbrew (5640) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - OCT 2, 2012
Clear amber color with lasting ivory head. Floral, citrus hop aromas with mild barnyard, peppercorn, dusty pale malts. medium body. Nice pine, floral hoppy flavors with lightly sweet pale malts, dry spices-bone dry spicy bitter finish--very good.

glennmastrange (2220) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Bottle. Moderate aromas of grain and straw for the malt, pine and lemon peel for the hops, musty basement for the yeast, with sour apple and apple cider vinegar in the background. Head is large, frothy turning rocky, off-white with good crusty and clingy lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is hazy amber. Flavor starts faintly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, watery with a lively carbonation and a lightly dry finish. Great hop complexity in the aroma and a great refreshing taste in this Saison.
