On tap, pours hazy orange with white head, not much lacing. Aromas is tons of juicy and almost rotten fruits, like mango, honeydew, Tropical fruits, mango, bitter hops, a little boozey, tons of fresh fruits and some vegetable qualities, and melon. Awesome and interesting saison from 2 of top 3 brewers ever. Bring it on.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle from lemonhead. Cloudy rusty amber with a small off white head. Aroma of honey, milk caramels, peppercorns and lemon. Flavor is very sweet, lots of caramel and butterscotch, there is some mild spice and bitterness. Medium body with a syrupy, flabby mouth feel. This is supposed to be a Saison???, really? This beer is a flabby, under attenuated mess.

Delicious combo from two of my favorite brewers. The Belgian yeast and wheatiness is welcome, as is the curious blend of spices that give this full flavored beer its character. Not only citrus and coriander, but floral aspect as well.

Shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike.
The beer is orange with a small white head. The aroma brings hops and citrus followed by a sturdy malt backbone. Good flavor, though a bit sweet and syrupy. Oranges soaked in alcohol. Hoppy finish with lingering bitter citrus. Not really a saison, in my opinion, but tasty nonetheless. Good stuff.

Bomber. Deep, cloudy golden body. Big, frothy, off-white head, slowly diminishing. Big aroma of tropical fruit, mango, passion fruit, toasted grain, alcohol, pepper, The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium to full body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Lingering bitterness. Like a cross between Dupont Posca Rustica and Dreadnaught. Fruity, aromatic, juicy. Finish of peppery alcohol and less dry than classic saisons. But overall, this is one enjoyable beer.

Bomber received as an extra in a trade. Thank you rfraga7! Limited rating due to most of my original rating being lost. Pours slightly hazy golden with a frothy white head that leaves some sticky lacing on the glass while dissipating. Smell is slightly sour and slightly fruity with crackers, lemon juice, dry soil, crackers, white pepper corns, lemon zest, hay, rubber and hints of barnyard. Taste is slightly bitter, tiny sour, tiny funky and slightly fruity with crackers, lemon juice, unripe tropical fruits, lemon zest, moist green herbs, pepper corns, dry soil, hay and hints of barnyard. Mouthfeel is slightly dry, tiny astringent and medium bodied. Finish is slightly sour and slightly bitter with crackers, unripe tropical fruits, hay, dry soil, pepper corns and lemon zest. A standard saison. Tasty but nothing fancy. Had hoped to give this a better rating but got enough to atleast write something.
