Blonde with a rich creamy head. Grassy and clean, indistinct herbal-tinged aroma redolent of new spring. Earthy, herbal flavors, perhaps of wintergreen? Fairly high amounts of European hops. Lightly peppered and phenolic with a crisp, bitter-sour, tannic herbal finish.

Pour is orange with a huge large bubbled white pillow like head. Floral notes with spices and fruit. Very nice nose. Flavor is a bit muted, but otherwise very nice. Flavor really mimics the nose. A different take on the saison style, but quite nice. Good effort overall.

Draught. It was like a saison, but with way too many hops poured into it. I thought it was decent but not for the style.

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Lightly sweet aroma with some spicy hints. The flavor has a peppery spicy note that rubs me slightly the wrong way. Light earthy notes and a light sweetness, followed by a pleasant dry finish. Decent.

22 oz bottle, Batch 7, Pours a hazy orange/gold color with a 1/2" white head and a bit of spotty lace. Aroma is yeasty with a light citrus touch. Also a bit of hop aroma as well. Lively palate with a medium body. Flavor is light citrus, orange, lemon, apricot, with a peppery/spice background. Overall, an interesting brew.

A little sweeter of a Saison for my taste. Lots of bubble gum and light citrus flavors with some spice in the aftertaste On tap at Rattle n Hum.

Bomber courtesy seabass. This one pours a hazy golden yellow color topped by a thick, foamy white head that slowly fades to a thin film. The aroma shows some lemon citrus, fresh floral hops, peppery spices, and some funky yeast. The flavor follows and is slightly tart with the citrus fruit and grassy hops playing off nicely with the peppery spices and funky yeast. Medium bodied and refreshingly dry on the palate and finely carbonated that leads to a spicy dry finish. The flavors compliment each other well. Really nice saison.
