cheap (5863) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2017
Got this bomber from JRs thanks to the new PA-LCB beery law relaxation. Lured into a $6 purchase because it said lemongrass and I know lemongrass is slightly tart, other lemon grass beers I had were darn good. High hopes on the label with lemongrass and shit, I like beers with lemongrass. Bomber for $6, better taste pretty darn good. Pours a really nice head with a hefe looking body. Wow, this is one of the best heads I’ve seen on a beer out of a bottle! Mild saison yeast aroma, no perfume fer sure. Yes, taste is quite yeasty as well. That is the first palate impression, lots of Belgian yeasty effects from France. Not experiencing any tartness at all in this one. Yes, yeasty with a little bit of co2. Could have a bit more creamy sizzley carbonation. Yes, quite an impact, yeast saison yeast. All I got to say is; "WHERE IS THE LEMONGRASS?" What else can be said? Mildly annoyed. However, in the end, it does hide the alky content rather well, getting unexpectedly a little dizzy, hehehhah. Typical farmhouse Belgian yeast in Franny? Yes, lemongrass or slightly tart? NO! Eh, less than expected. Not happy to pay a spud for this bomber. It’s a little medicinal for a saison.

Very good Belton style saison. Aroma’s yeasty, malty, a bit fruity, citrusy and spicy. Flavor’s like nose, good balance between bitter, sweet, and tang. Excellent body and finish.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2016 Big bomber bottle. A bit hard to taste the lemongrass and pretty dry going down. All in all not too bad if you like these pretentious concoctions.

Pours sligh y hazy golden with a thick eggshell head. Aroma offers fruity and fresh malt notes. Flavor nicely echoes the aroma while adding a spicy hint. Mouthfeel presents typical body and fizz. A sonnet to good craft beer.

PanMarek (459) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 24, 2016
Musty yeast on the nose with some pepper. Pours yellow straw color with lots of thick, white foam. Medium body, slightly watery. The malt has a cereal touch that harmonizes well with the complex yeast and the notes of citrus hops. Clear pepper notes and maybe a little coriander. Finishes strong with lingering spice and a little alcohol burn.

tmoreau (4374) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 31, 2016
On tap at John’s Restaurant & Tavern in Winfield, IL. as a full, rock glass sampler, showing a hazed, gold color, with a frothy, white head, and spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was herbal, light hints of yeast & spice, pineapple, lemon, and some light tanginess. Light bodied, with fair carbonation, the taste was similar notes, with less expression, and a bit washed out & thin nature to the flavor. Hidden alcohol, and drinkably okay, but a plethora of better examples out there.

PorterPounder (7971) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2016
DeLand, Fl. - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 750 ml bottle. Murky medium golden pour with a soft silky white head that sticks around awhile and leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma is pleasant with some soft spicy notes, some grassiness, a small hint of banana. Flavor has some buttery softness, a hint of mild citrus lemony bitterness, some yeasty notes. Thirst quenching and fresh. Nice, thick mouthfeel with a solid tartness to it. Expected this to be good and was not disappointed.

It pours close to a straw color with a full white head. It is a bit cloudy. It has high fruit flavors that are highlighted by citrus fruits, lemons, bananas, some spices, and a bit of floral hops. It has a slight tart taste to it with citrus fruit flavors, lemons, pepper, and other spices. It also has a slight bit of earthy flavors. The is a slight bit of sourness to it. It feels medium light with a high bit of carbonation. It has a fruity, but tart slightly spice after taste with medium light bitterness in the finish.
