Bomber from Total Wine, Greenville, SC. If ever a name was an object lesson in how to avoid snarky ratings, this would be a top contender. But in fairness, it actually is emphatically a saison in terms of its majority characteristics. So no stylistic crisis, but just not an especially good beer. Light copper pour, moderately carbonated, and an unassuming nose of grain, generic yeast, and phenols. Slightly watery mouthfeel does little for the flavors, which come across like buttery popcorn, mild spice, and a bunch of fruits. Meh. reggiedunlop (3724) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2013
pours a hazy orange witha medium white head. aroma is slightly citrusy and tangy. flavor follows suit and adds tropical fruit and a slight rye spice. finish is tangy and dry. DYCSoccer17 (3696) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 26, 2011
10 ounce sample on tap at Dad’s Kitchen in Sacramento, CA during Sacramento Beer Week. The aroma is a bit sweet and sugary. There are a fair amount of dusty horseblanket yeast esters present. This also has a bit of an awkward minty and chocolate aroma, too. Weird. Moderately transparent mahogany body with a very small off-white head. Starts kind of chocolatey and a bit salty. Actually, this is rather salty. A little spiced in the middle, before this becomes thick and syrupy later on. The finish is dominated by the dusty banana yeast esters. Just a little too different. Too big, and too cloying for a saison. Needs to be drier. smith4498 (3646) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Pours clear light copper color with white head. Grainy and malty aroma. Sweet caramel and cereal malt flavors with some grassy hops. Medium body with average carbonation. OK, but not worth seeking out or having again. SpringsLicker (3637) - Tennessee, USA - APR 29, 2012
Mostly clear orange with a thin whit head.
Some malt, some citrus in the aroma, not much here really.
Light sweetness at the start, some bitterness in the finish.
Not very complex, but no faults either.

Dark orange in color with white head ... Aroma is ciders and slightly soapy... Flavor is spicy malts, caramel toffee, and Belgian yeast... Yeasty on the finish... Not my favorite Palidor19 (3188) - Brandon, Florida, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Nice and sharp with a strong grainy taste. It’s flavor is quite different with a nice bite yet very drinkable. Hops are not too outstanding. The bite is coming from the malt and the rye jeremytoni (3058) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - JUL 12, 2012
From a bottle poured a straw color with a small amount of head. Bitter hoppy flavor with a lingering aftertaste. BOLTZ7555 (3027) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Not much to this one...straw colored pour with a fluffy ivory head. Yeasty nose with mild pepper, lemongrass, and earthiness. Slightly hoppy with a smidge of citrus. Meh. Bacterial (2999) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Bottle shared by John - thanks! Malty, lots of sweetness some Belgian spice but mostly sweet malt here. Easy to drink.
