look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours a clear, almost semi-translucent amber/orange in color with a two finger eggshell head.

S - Small amount of clove giving way to orange rind, candied sugar and Belgian yeast. It yields more towards the sugar side than the grassy/funky side.

T - Sweet peaches and orange at first. Bready malts with a dash of white pepper. It's a sweet finish.

M - Medium bodied and medium carbonation. It can seem cloying and has a sticky body.

O - To me, high abv saisons are a style that never really fit the bill for anything. It's half of what you want a saison to be, but the high abv/sugar/cloying make it half of what you don't want it to be.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Bomber bottle poured into pint glass.

Clear orange gold with white head that persists with ample lacing.

Aroma: spicy cloves, mild grassy funk and malt.

Taste: sweet malt, moderate clove spice and moderate bitterness.

Medium body, medium carbonation and quite a bit of ethanol warmth.

Overall very good. This is really more of a belgian specialty ale with more ethanol and less barnyard funk and tartness than many good farmhouse ales.

Pours a chill hazed apricot with a frothy cream head that lingers.

Tangerine, peach, nectarines, and soft farmhouse form the aroma.

Apricot echoes in the flavor, with lightly bready malt at the backbone. There's a hint of farmhouse character. Slight confectioners sugar counters citrus.

Body is fairly heavy for the style, with fairly high carbonation and a touch of alcohol warmth.

I like the fruit flavor, and not as dry or funky as some.

Serving type: on-tap
