Bomber and served in Pipeworks sniffy thingy: Pours a slightly hazy coppery golden sunset hue with a lasting frothy head and very good lace. The first thingy you notice when evaluation of the nose is the pronounce PMW hops esters of pink grapefruit, crabapple and pineapple along with a slight hit of pine needles and pine sap resin. Oh yeah this be an ’Merican styled Saison foshizzle. Wheat husks and pils malt round the aroma into happy clouds.
The taste is bright clean citrus bitterness over a layer of biscuity and wheaty malts. Slap of some hop spices and dusty dry yeast notes (methinks fermented with an ’Mercian yeast if not for the slight bubblegum note). The mouth feel is sprite and lively, dry but not overly dry. Yes... this is a SIPA (Saison India Pale Ale) and I LOVE IT!

Pours cloudy orange with a medium-sized white creamy head. Lots of fruit in the aroma and plenty of spicy Belgian yeast character
Rich flavour with a lot of that spice coming through along with some peach and some other sweet fruit. Pretty good.

Pours thick murky orange golden sandy I color with a white head. Aroma brings a blend of sweet juicy citrus hops with the base or wheat-like pilsner malts. Flavor of the hops is the backbone to he saison yeast, with nice juicy orange notes rounding out the farmhouse yeast flavors on a juicy, satiating body. hopscotch (11236) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle... Cloudy, golden pour with a small, fizzy, white head. Decent retention. The nose is doughy with components of floral hops, peaches and apricots. Full-bodied with prickly carbonation. The flavor is a melding of sweet peach nectar and spicy, moderately bitter hops. Finishes tongue-numbing and bittersweet. Bottle courtesy of BBB63!
