3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy straw with two fingers of white head, good retention and some significant lacing. Aroma is hay, grass, slight citrus and herbal. Flavor is bitter wheat, grain, fading into citrus and sweet wheat. Moderate carbonation and light body, crisp texture, grain. A pretty tasty, refreshing brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle $5.50 nice yellow color, hazy, cloudy. Smells super yeasty and spicy. If I smelled it blind I think I would have immediately said saison but it was no Dupont. The taste was a little citrusy, very yeasty, not a bad saison at all but still not a Dupont or Hennepin by any means (or my personal favorite Saison Brett). The carbonation is light and its super easy to knock the bomber back.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer pours a very pale yellow color with a white head. A fruity quality dominates the aroma. A fair amount of yeast, mild spice notes, and lots of white grape. A bit of lemon zest and cracker malt as well. The flavor is quite sweet and heavy on the fruit esters and grape notes. A bit of lemon zest tartness, some bread and cracker malts, and a hint of yeast. Light grass, straw, and spice.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
