Bottle:   Caramel colored, orange hued, moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Spritzy orange peel and zest up front, slightly floral but very minor and fleeting.   Has a slight soapy aspect, fragrant you might say.   Aroma reminds me of citrus zest but also with a bit of spice to it, like a candle.   Not bad, but hard to pinpoint.   Somewhat floral, but a little astringent.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Seems a little rough.   I can appreciate what they were going for, but seems a little off the mark.

Bomber from Made In Oregon. Pours copper with a fizzy/creamy near-white head. Aroma is orange mostly, but a deep inhale brings up a little earthyness. Pretty foamy in the mouth. Its dry, earthy, peppery, has some orange zest. The dusty earthy aspect comes out stronger towards the finish, which is a bit peppery. Its a little unusual, but Id say more saison than anything else. Could have used a bit more spice.

Alphadelic (2206) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 29, 2012
Its not even red. I find that kind of annoying. Its a reasonable saison with maybe a hint of orange skin tang to it. The carbonation is far too club soda-y to me. A little rough and ready for me. Im surprised as I am in a saison state of mind right now. The orange is quite esoteric, in a very mimosa kinda way. I cant really get my head around it. Definitely the essential oils rather than the juice at work here though.

Nikiel (879) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 9, 2012
Bottle with Carla. pours a hazy orange/brown with off-white foam. Smells strongly of grapefruit with hints of alcohol. Feels very thin and watery. Tastes mild with hints of pepper, grapefruit, pineapple and rum.

cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 24, 2011
Wax sealed bomber served in a tulip. Hazy burnt orange in color with a huge off-white head. Good retention, minimal lace. Saison aromatics. Bright coriander, spice, orange peel, lime and white pepper. Light sweet flavor of tart lime. Light-medium bubbly body, thin creamy texture, and a acidic and dry finish. Quite nice.

Hophazard (193) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 7, 2011
Esters and belgian funk with a barnyard woodiness. A transparent copper with diminishing head. A mild fruitiness that quickly evolves into a dry finish. A decent amount of carbonation aids the crispness. A spicy farmhouse ale with slight tartness supplied by the oragnes. Great twist to the style that works.

Zwicklemania 2011 Alameda Brewing
Golden orange in color, hazy with a thin off white head. Added Orange peel and blood orange juice added to the farm house ale. Tasty sweet and very dry in the finish. Nice malt build and added fruit flavors. Very good beer. Nice additions to the Saison style.
