Bomber bottle with brewed/bottled on dating. Purchased at the source.

Hazed and lovely lookin' under a frothy and rocky off white head that lasts nicely.

Fruity nose with ripe melon coming forward

Tasty, complex and thoroughly saison in character. Fruit, spice, yeast, crafty goodness.

Love the style and love this beer.

Please consider distribution to the NYC area

On tap at Breckenridge at the Ballpark in Denver. Pours deep orange colored with a small off white head. Aroma of tropical fruits as expected, some light funk, and a hint of spice. Flavor is on the sweeter side with lots of bubble gum notes and some tropical fruits, sweet wheaty malts, and very little zesty saison like barnyard yeast going on here. Medium plus bodied and medium carbonation. Overall I found this to be only OK, but not bad.
