Bomber. Lots of citrus, a bit of sour and some sweetness. Really well balanced and goes down easy considering the ABV.

22oz. bottle poured in a pint glass. Pours a very hazy, golden color with a pure white, soapy, head with moderate lacing. Scents of citrus and floral hops. Flavor is incredibly hoppy for bring a saison. I also get a hint of spicy yeast and fruits, predominately grapefruit. Very easy to drink beer with smooth finish.

Pours hazy gold with white head. Aroma is sweet and malty. Sweet with lots of lemon citrus flavors going on. Some tropical fruit hoppyness. Very sweet, hides the alcohol well, lots going on here. Pretty good stuff.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours slightly hazy old gold with a thin soapy, off white head. Nice citrus in the nose up front, lots of spice, floral hops, floury grain, cereal, toast, hay, stone fruit and some slight funk. Flavor starts out with citrus, lots of yeast spiciness, stone, fruit, light minerality and a pretty healthy wallop of booze. Lightly slick palate on entry with a moderate, slightly sharp carbonaiton and a slightly boozy and astringent finish. Good stuff, but like most high abv Saisons, it could use a little less alcohol.

Faint citrus funk and zesty spice. Honey gold with light tan head. Delicious citrus hop character with funky doughy spicy yeast. Some dry rind. Taste is bitter, slightly dry, and refreshing at the same time. Medium to thick body for the style.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 ounce bottle into signature tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy orange amber color with a 2 finger dense fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Some nice foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big orange zest, orange rind, pineapple, pear, apple, floral, grass, clove, pepper, and earthy yeast esters. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malty hoppiness and yeast spiciness. Taste of orange zest, orange rind, pineapple, clove, pepper, pear, apple, lemon zest, floral, grass, herbal, and earthy yeast spiciness. Good amount of earthy spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus rind, pineapple, clove, pepper, pear, apple, herbal, floral, grass, and earthy yeast spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice flavor complexity and balance of hoppy flavors/spicy yeast esters; with zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a slick and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice hoppy saison! Very nice balance and complexity of hoppy flavors and yeast spiciness; and extremely smooth to sip on. This was a very enjoyable offering.

hazy orange, light cream head lasts. Zesty nose is light citrus, heavy pineapple with faint peach sweetness, honey then with warmth comes dum dum sweetness, probably the watermelon. Flavor is quite bitter, paper and orange up front with medicine and burn mid-finish. Wouldn’t have guessed saison.
