2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from HankDaStank. Poured a cloudy brownish-cider yellow with a large tight frothy head. Aroma is floral, spicy, lemon, lime, white pepper. Medium to fuller bodied with aggressive carbonation and a lingering aftertaste. Flavor is the same as the aroma but a bit more fruity with lime and tangerine. Good stuff.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Look - Thick, white head. Very thick bubbles. Light yellow/green color. Lacing sticks.
Smell - Sour with a hint of funk/dank. Wheat. Grass.
Taste - There is a lot going on. Wheat. Sour. Milky/creamy. Spicy in finish and after taste.
Feel - Wheat/Belgian beers are what pulled me away from the Coors Lights of the world. I am not a fan anymore, though, because of the carbonation/throat bubble you get from them. This DID NOT have that.
Overall - I bought it because it was Floyds. I will not buy it again BUT I do like it. I am not a fan of sour beers but this has just enough that keeps me intrigued.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Payless Liquor, Dirtysouthside, IN. Pours a hazy blonde with an inch of white head that retains well. Nose of sour roll-ups. Flavors get to sour apple, bubblegum, subtle spruce, and an indescribable spice. High carbonation and medium/full body. Very interesting take on this style!

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Wow I did not like this. The nose is too barnyard, the mouthfeel is too thin. The alcohol is too forward. There’s really nothing to latch on to.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Is there a style these guys can’t make? From bomber, pours a very hazy yellow with a one-finger white head. Arom and taste of barnyard funk and oranges. Medium mouthfeel and perfect carbonation. This is not too strong, and really, just about right for me. A delicious and delightful saison.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is of strong sulfurous barnyard funk. Taste is of oranges and wheat. A tiny bit of clove. Not much of a fizzy feeling on the palate, which is unexpected given the constant string of bubbles coming from the bottom of the glass.
