Bottle at PilsnerPeter’s Spring Gathering. Pale amber/gold beer. Aroma is quite interesting. Bright lemony thyme, mint and herbal spice up front. The more typical banana and apricot notes appear in back, but thankfully, they aren’t overly sweet and cloying. There is a lot of clove and wheat flavour that pick up as the beer warms a bit, giving it a flavour like a cross between saison and hefeweizen. Quite full-bodied and a bit sweeter than it likely should be, but it isn’t cloying. Unusual take on the style. AirForceHops (7535) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 17, 2011
Draft at Brew pub. Snifter. Nearly zero head or lacing. Hazy Brown/orange color. Citrus and peach in the nose. Taste mirrors the nose. It was easy to drink with my meal. An average, medium bodied Saison. This years batch is 6.5 ABV. Worth a try. Not sure I would order again.

Bomber at Peter’s NY gathering - a lot sweeter than I like my saisons - kind of a honey character throughout - some mango, pineapple and banana try to capitalize on the sweetness - some wheaty tang and citrus rind come is, as well as slightly bitter herbs and light hops - these things try to balance the sweetness out, but don’t really do a good job of it - disappointing.

PPRBSG09. Bottle, pours a pale golden body with a white aggressive head. Floral gummy and mint notes. Earth y dry with some spicy yeast notes. Nice brew. Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 8, 2009
PPRBSG09. Bomber. Pours a hazy dull copper orange with a thin lasting white head. Aroma is orange citrus, lemon zest, spices, herbal and a bit grassy- flowery hops light salty spicy phenolic saison yeast- smells a bit doughy but sweet and a fruity ester. Flavor is a bit sweet, fruity lower on phenolics, herbal and a touch grassy touch of lime zest with a touch more sweetness. Finishes a bit sweet, and a bit muddled. Meh.
