Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours gold with a white head. Aroma is sort of apple/banana with a clove hint. Med body. Flavor is banana, still think there’s an apple aspect, and there’s definitely clove. Maybe a bit earthy. The flavor is "bright" - and fairly strong. Yet it also seems a bit weak, Belgianwise. It’s like something new for me, so I’m having a bit of trouble parsing. Sure drinks nice tho.

Decent Saison taste. Good Saison aroma. I’m glad I finally tried this beer, but probably won’t have it again.

Bottle:   Golden, large white pillowy head, nice lacing, moderate carbonation.   Musty and barnish

on the nose, seems a bit bright, wheaty too.   Not as bright on the tongue.   Musty wheatiness, but

thankfully not mealy.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Wheaty finish, slightly musty, with a smidgen of

some sort of spiciness.   Rhubarb?   Tiz oka, only because its not mealy.   Otherwise fairly average.

Golden-bodied, with a lathery head. Lovely, understated feathery wheat dusted air bouquet. The body is surprisingly orangey, and veers into witbier territory. Hay and wheaty notes throughout.

22 ounce bottle. Pours a cloudy gold with a decent white head. Aroma of fruit, yeast, and spice. Taste is banana, berries, yeast, and coriander. No complaints.

On tap at the source. Very cool 16 oz glass pour. Very much a golden hue with a healthy froth action. Effervescent and slightly hazy. Aroma is heavy on spices...coriander in particular. Mouthfeel is aggressively bubbly and assertive like a waitress at TGI Fridays who wants to date you. Taste leans heavily on the traditional saison spice profile with some citrus and a decent bitterness especially at the end. It could use a bit more sweetness in my book but overall I’m not complaining. Yes, Fridays waitress I’ll join you for a beer.

poisoneddwarf (2671) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - AUG 3, 2015
Bomber, bottled a month ago. Aroma is yeasty, banana, dough, grain, cheese. Pours hazy gold with a medium white head with decent retention; laces a little. Taste is yeasty, light sweetness, light bitterness, spicy, grain. I can imagine rhubarb in here, but I wouldn’t think it if it wasn’t mentioned on the label; it’s very faint and it doesn’t provide any tartness like it should. Somewhat thin, relatively soft carbonation. It’s good, I just wish that rhubarb was more prominent.

Draft pour pint at Frankies pizza. Pours a cloudy pale yellow color with a thin fizz head. Fruity, belgian yeast, banana like aroma. Flavor is fruity, with strawberry, and banana. Very nicely done. Tasty saison.

22 oz bottle- Pours hazy golden with a white head that reduces leaving a collar. Aroma is very yeasty, banana, some coriander and clove. The taste is even more of all those things in the aroma, nice banana yeasty spicy saison, clean, easy drinking. Good.
