Bomber from the brewery courtesy of reggiedunlop. Hazy brown, medium sized creamy tan head. Good retention. Aroma of doughy, biscuit malt, floral, citrus, herbal hops. The taste is caramel, biscuit malt, floral, citrus, berry hops. Medium bodied, mild lingering bitterness, well balanced. Solid.

obguthr (4357) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Butterscotch and dandelion, less of the latter. Hazy copper, thick head. Dandelion is more in the forefront on the palate, but still a lot of butterscotch. Medium body, easy carbonation, decent bitterness. Not awful, but less than pristine.

jackl (5368) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Growler, thanks to noted admin Drake. @ C’ville Tasting. Medium amber pour with a small head. Nose of orange peel, toast, wood. Mellow spices. Taste is moderately hoppy. Willow patch, dirt. Some marshmallow sweetness, honey. Countryside. Medium body, soft carb. Not your typical TH beer.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 18/20
TheEpeeist (3457) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Growler, a few days old from the source. Not an attractive muddy brown with whitish froth. Nose is green banana, rye, musk, toffee and citrus peel. Medium body with soft carb. Taste is rye, banana, rind and pith; maybe some papaya. Super hoppy but restrained enough to let the saison character emerge.

boxofrane (2322) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Draft at the brewpub. Pours hazy orange with a medium sized white head. The aroma has a big rye bread quality. The taste has a mix of spiciness and bitterness. Very good take.

Ed5388 (2431) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy brownish/orange color with a finger of fluffy off white head. Nice fresh aroma of citrus, pineapple, grapefruit skins, and toasted malt. Taste of toasted malt, grapefruit zest, lemon, ripe pineapple, and hints of pepper.

patrickfannon (1242) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2012
On tap at Tired Hands the first time I went with Vinny and Tom. Pours murky brownish red with a bit of cream-colored head and lace. Aroma is blood orange peel, some bitter lemon zest and Belgian yeast, some subtle spice. Taste is very slightly funky with a ton of citrusy, bitter hops in the finish. Palate is firm without being cloying. Interesting beer.

Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Thanks to yourefragile. Served in a Tired Hands wine glass. Medium amber. Short head. Earthy nose with some citrus. Dry with a good bitterness. Nose is my favorite part.
