Bottle at a recent BA/RB tasting... Poured golden with a white head. Sweet, yeasty, with some spice and light vinous fruit characters. Wheat and vanilla with a balancing hop character. theisti (4138) - Kansas, USA - JAN 20, 2012
22 oz bomber courtesy of bvc. The pour is a hazed gold copper, along with a small off white head. The aroma is a pleasant soft yeastiness, hay, earth, light citrus clove. Taste is hay, earth, and a pretty strong yeast clove, and then opens up with some floral citrus bitter. Very dry finish. Palate is medium bodied, unfiltered mouth feel, low carbonation level, and the dry flinty bitterish finish. Easy drinking beer, thanks for sending this my way Brandon. andrewje41 (3986) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - OCT 26, 2014
22 oz bottle pour. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a mild fresh fruit aroma. A really dry saison here with a lot of different fruit flavors. Really easy drinking beer that seems to fit the season just right. Not the most stand out saison out there, but I enjoyed this. Good stuff. Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2012
Pleasant, malt-forward beer with a healthy amount of sweetness. Somewhat cloying amounts of honey and caramel. Snappy hops are refreshing, herbal and spicy. Subtle fruit notes of pear, apples and white grapes. Even though it’s on the sweet side, it is refreshing. Curiously, this beer seems more like a maibock than a saison.

Clear gold with a white head. Light spice, citrus or lemon, a bit of earth, lightly sweet fruit. Medium thin body. Flavor is light spice, bright citrus, a bit of dough, lightly vinous. Soft flavors overall but rather tasty. I really enjoyed this beer.

Can shared by Skyview - thanks!! Light yellow pour with a white head. Fruity apple nose and subtle Belgian spices. Nice fruity flavor and slightly bitter finish. Nice! pushkinwow (2826) - Ottawa, CANADA - NOV 15, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Amber with bubbly cream head. Light farmouse with some citrus and grapefruit, chardonnay, bit of spice, on the finish but tasty. poisoneddwarf (2563) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Bomber, bottled about 2 1/2 months ago. Aroma is bubblegum, dough, citrus drink powder, clove. Pours hazy golden with a thick white head with great retention. Taste is sweet, spicy, lightly tart, earthy, light bitterness in the finish. Slightly foamy mouthfeel, medium body. Straight and basic for style, but it tastes good.

Interesting to do a saison as one’s harvest ale. Clear gold pour, white head. This is pretty much your classic estery American saison, all banana and fruit and very little funk, a bit sweet, pepper and hops in the close. It’s not bad, but it’s not something I’m eager to through can after can of the way I was with Frement’s summer APA. In fact, I fear the rest of the sixpack is going to join the ’13 celebration ale rotting in the garage.
pours a semi-hazy amber with a large white head, above average carbonation, and great lacing.
smell is of citrus, wheat, some caramel, and a touch of floral.
taste is of wheat, sweet fruits, caramel, earth, citrus, hops in the back, and some spice. ends a tad bitter.
