22 oz bomber, no bottled-on date, poured into a tulip glass.
A- Pours a slightly hazy golden color, topped with a thick white head, decent retention and some spotty lacing.
S- Lots of spice, herbs and pepper. Belgian yeast and sage are very prominent. Hops are minimal and malt is light and slightly sweet.
T- Sweet wheaty malt and apple/pear fruitiness. Lots of spice, white pepper, sage and Belgian yeast. This is alright but it's a bit one-dimensional and the sage gets to be too much pretty quickly.
M- Medium-bodied, high carbonation, smooth and prickly feel, dry finish.
O- A solid saison, the use of sage is interesting but it loses some points on drinkability, anything past 6-7 oz becomes difficult to drink because the sage and spice become very overpowering, as is all too often the case, there's no reason for this to be in a bomber.

Pastel honey color with a massive two and a half finger head of off-white. Almost meringue-like foam consistency.
Bright and lightly tangy farmhoues yeast in the nose with powdery spice notes, accenting the white sage, hints of pepper, and dry basil. Hints of lemon and chalky pale malts and slight tartness.
Very dry and very powdery. Almost champagne-like in carbonation and somewhat in flavor. White wine, dry white sage, coriander, yeast cake, soda crackers, hard water salinity, and apricot skins. Perhaps, a touch of grains of paradise.
Medium body with a medium piquant carbonation. Feels good.
Cellar Door is a tasty saison with a good deal of complex flavors and unique textures.
