22oz bottle... Carbonation? Not really, no head or lace. Hazy copper color. Sweet fruit and floral aroma...blossoms...aroma is fairly mute though. Malty and somewhat sweet with an earthy herbal medicinal sort of bitterness. Alcohol shows up in the finish. Really, not very enjoyable...saison? sorry, just call this a spiced ale. It doesn’t come close to hitting the saison mark. Thanks Kevin, for giving me the chance to try this!

Bomber bottle poured hazy straw yellow with a medium white head and nice lacing. Aromas of Belgian yeast, wheat, and cloves. Flavor is mild bitter. Not bad.

tillmac62 (675) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - MAY 3, 2016
BOD 3/4/16. Hazy golden pour. Outstanding head volume, world class lacing and retention. Very good typical saison nose that is subtle on the funk. Light Belgian yeast notes are present (banana, sweet citrus) over a pale base. Medium body that is smooth and somewhat oily. Quite outstanding carbonation / body balance with a tickling middle effervescence and a prickly pop in the finish. The flavor profile is quite good. It has an underlying sweetness that arrives past the middle, a bit atypical for the style, but keeps the barnyard funkiness subdued. In conjunction with the sweetness, the yeast imparted fruit flavors arrive. The middle hints at bitterness, while initially the flavors were blended in nature. The finish is a complex slow fade - funk arrives again as the sweetness tails off coupled with a bit of spicy pepper and alcohol astringency. A subtle sourness lurks underneath and leaves with a slight pucker.

emusche (177) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 4, 2016
Pours hazy sunflower-orange with a nice, big head. Aroma is white pepper, lemon, coriander, spice and earthy herbal notes. Taste is peppery lemon/orange, coriander, banana, clove, still with that earthiness present. Not my favorite style, but this is good saison. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chucklemation (1306) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - MAR 30, 2016
Pours a bubbly bright gold with a booming white foam head. Aroma is pepper, spices, and citrus. Flavor is spices, coriander, and sweet orange peel. Has a smooth body, with light astringency. A pleasant drink that feels lighter than its ABV suggests.

maltman53 (459) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - MAR 24, 2016
Bomber pours cloudy light-orange with a nice lacy head. Aroma is lime custard, banana, and clove. Taste confirms the aromas, adding tart spice and frothy marshmallow mouthfeel. Overall, a very good example of the Saison style.

justsayswell (260) - Mission, Kansas, USA - FEB 13, 2016
Golden orange pour with a nice big rocky head that leaves tons of chunky lacing. Nose is earthy funk, black pepper, clove, faint grassy hop. Medium bodied, slightly creamy, with prickly carbonation at the back of the palate. Taste is more funky yeast, orange peel, crackery malt. Nice sour tail, with a bit of spicy hop. Pretty good.

sudomorph (1065) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2015
650ml bottle. Bottled 04/07/13. Pours a slightly chill gazed golden orange with a two finger, off white head that thins to a thick coating. Aromais slightly acidic with great notes of candy sugar, bubble gum, Belgian yeast, spice, and orange citrus. Taste is balanced. Coriander, citrus, slight bread, Belgian yeast, and a drawn out, slightly spicy ending. Medium busy with a high carbonation. Clean in the north with a near effervescent carbonation and a dry finish. Overall a nice beer the slight acidicness isn’t my bag but the rest of the flavours are spot on.
