3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is rating number 4300, but some beer had to be. So why not this one. Courtesy of a trade with Strykzone. Thanks Dave. Pours hazy gold with a white head and light lacing .Nose is citrus, rye, and a light funk. Medium body and carbonated mouth feel. Flavor is fruit, citrus, and some earth. There is light funk and this continues into the finish. The flavor here is different but good. The light funk, fruit, citrus, and funk are in good balance and the beer is easy drinking and quite enjoyable.

Bomber from Wine & Cheese. Pours bright gold with a large foamy white head. Aroma is confusing. Maybe it’s honey and rye. Med body at least. Flavor is honey, and somewhat earthy - rye is in it. It’s even rather floral - apparently thanks to the honey? A bit more honey than I’d usually want, but it works. Rather unusual flavor palate.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Honey golden and opaque with carbonation floating up. A fluffy white head is three fingers. A nice citrus and floral aroma. A prickly feel. Wheat is both tasted and felt and oranges with more citrus is also prominent. I don’t taste honey or rye, though. Also, I really don’t taste the saison earthiness or malts.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2015 Bottle. Highly effervescent hazy amber-gold with a tall white head. Aroma is floral soap, herbs, must,peach, dehydrated strawberries. Medium bodied, acidic, prickly, carbonic like a thicker soda pop. Sweet fruity-soapy finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is a dark gold with a large white head. Aroma is a sweet fruit perfume. Peach, white grapes and some berry. I liked it but it kinda came out of left field. Flavor is more of the fruit up front but then comes a tart lemon juice and finishes with something like a kefir lime. This was kinda all over the place but It thought it was odd but decent saison.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Colorado Plus. Orange and clear appearance. A crisp and dry saison with citrus zest, light peppery spice, bread, light rye and mild bitterness. Medium bodied with a touch of honey-like malt on the finish. Refreshing and surprisingly well done.

On tap at Stapleton Tap House September 19th. Pours a cloudy amber with big head. Aroma of sour fruit, horse blanket. Medium carbonation and big mouthfeel. Flavors of barley malts, apricot, and some cherry juice and funky herb flavors. Overall bold and flavorful with a tab more body than many saisons.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2013 2000th rating . Needed something special but just couldn’t think of what to drink and then an auspicious event occurred. I am visiting the Bier Station, a new bar in KC where all the hairy guys seem to be going, for the first time with my awesome friends the Blacks (Lora and Billiam) and of course Abbey. Its one of those store slash bar with nothing spectacular on tap but solid stuff. But I look around the bottles, eh nothing special, get a beer on tap that I am only mildly interested in drinking. As I walk away I decide to just look through the random boxes sitting around and what do I find, well stupid a bottle of this. I have wanted to drink this for a while but I refuse to pay the ridiculous store price for a Crabtree beer. Come on, it’s Crabtree. But why do I want to drink it, as I said its Crabtree. Well, the beer combines two of my favorite things beer and art. I mean how could it take so long to make a saison named after Cezanne. It’s so simple. And that answers why I want to drink the beer, still not worth the price. But at Bier Station tthe mark up to drink in store is very small. So the beer meets my desire for the beer but also more importantly a good deal.
Beer.... hmm, good stuff. Pours thick golden, no clarity, medium thick head. Aroma is beautiful layer of brett with natural peach skin. It’s hard to separate where one starts and the other ends. It’s all natural and lively and awesome. Flavor is less rich, fine but kind of empty compare to flavor. Slightly fruit Belgian ale, not much brett, no sourness. Just a bit disappointing but fine. Full and soft mouthfeel, almost like hairy peach skins tickling my cheeks.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap at Freshcraft. Orange color, looks decent enough. Smell is very floral, not bad but odd, not impressed. The flavor was unlike any saison I’ve had, floral, perfume, oranges, it was like something from Bath and Bodyworks was poured into the beer, awful. So glad I tried this on tap as the bottle price is ridiculous and it was not a good saison at all.
Serving type: on-tap
