This Saison was extremely unique for me. The fact that they donít add any spices to this Saison is pretty awesome, they rely solely on the Belgian yeast strain. Great carbonation, nice fluffy pillowly head, spices upfront with a nice malt backbone. Extremely approachable Saison with a little warming alcohol finish.

Bomber bottle poured a clear golden hue w/ small white head. Moderate aroma of spicy yeast and apricot. Light sweet and light bitter finish. Taste is similar to nose. Light bodied, lively carbonation, and a dry finish.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
22 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden yellow with a medium bubbly, creamy white head that goes to a thin film that leaves some lacing.
The aroma is grassy straw, bready malts and a little fruit with some funk.
The flavor is sweet bready malts with floral vanilla notes and some ripe fruit. Weirdly tastes a bit like a nitro cream ale. The mouthfeel is a bit thin and watery.
Overall, as it warms it degrades and get a bit vegetative.

Apparently this beer is thus named because of the ownerís wife demanding that if he started a brewery, he needed to name a beer after her. -__-
Tap at River North. Low haze golden pour. Weak foam. Sugary candy aroma with stickier, phenolic Belgian yeast. Taste is more like an Abbey Tripel with booze, sugar, soap and hefty rustic grain cracker content. Eh. Dusty mouthfeel. Not really on track for saison.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from LetsPour.com. Pours a dark rather orange gold with a transient white head. Not getting much out of the nose, except some mild spicy citrus. Med body. Flavor is very Belgian yeast/fruity ester. To taste it is to know itís Belgian. There are some very earthy aspects to it. And itís also rather citrus. Itís a bit heavy for a saison, perhaps, but I have no idea why it has a low rating.
