4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy yellow pour, with a rocky white head. Enticing yeasty lemon aroma. Light and spritzy on the tongue. Easy drinking summer ale. Lemon drop candy and a little belgian fukiness. Long fruity and dry finish. I could sip a few of these after mowing the lawn. It wouldn’t stand up to any food match stronger than an undressed salad or a sorbet. But still, a lot of flavor for such a low ABV.

Bomber from Once Upon a Vine, Richmond. Pretty decent pour, a cloudy pale gold with a medium head and bits of soapy lacing. Light yeast, straw, and dry hops in the nose. Taste is understated and mostly undeveloped, a dose of hops, a helping of fruit, some modest dry cracker and spice in the finish. Okay drinking but not much personality.

I wasn’t a very big fan of this saison. I thought it was fairly bland, not much going on. Try thier other beers.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on tap at iTap Chesterfield into tulip glass. It poured a cloudy yellow color with long-lasting white foam and lots of Belgian lace. Aromas of very live yeast, freshly cut husky grains, woodsy and mildly spicy hops, light pepper and clove. Flavors of mild malt, wheat, citrus, honey, herbal tea tannins, subtle earthiness and wildness (late Brett?), some vegetal spices, perhaps coriander, grains of paradise, nutmeg. Mellow white-bread mouthfeel, moderate carbonation, well-rounded and refreshing. Suspended yeast gives an interesting chalky or powdery impression. Lingering fruity and herbal aftertaste which eventually finished fairly dry. Crisp and complex, highly recommended.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour on tap at the brewery is hazy orange with white head, aroma brought notes of some pineapple, pear, apricot notes mix with some slight spice, lots of sweet crackery biscuit as well in there. Taste is sweet tropical and white fruits, some pear and pineapple and a touch of mango mix into the crackery biscuit, finishing fairly sweet. Wish there was a bit more spice and some funk to balance out the sweet, but a decent brew.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Pour results in almost all head in the glass with very little light good liquid at the bottom. Aromas are thick with apples, a little doughy yeastiness and some lemon or something like that. Flavor is OK but seems more like a hard cider than a beer. Not sure if this is intentional or if there is a QC problem. It is decent and some of the funkiness comes through, but the apple juice flavor is strong with this one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ brewery. Very faintly hazy light gold with a thin oamy head, no lace. Big nose of barn funk, overripe light belgian fruit, and a touch of hay. Taste was a little light but contained a lot of comnplex saison flavors. Dry funky yeast, light cereal malt, some complex ripe light fruits, and some coriander. Interesting, just a bit light on the palate.
