750 ml green bottle, when I popped the cork the foam came out like champagne, ran off for a good 3 minutes, praying there would actually be beer to taste afterward.

A - Tons of white bubbles, highly carbonated. Yellow golden color and cloudy, once the bubbles go almost no lacing.

S - Earthy smell, you make out the grains in the background. Barely detect any hops.

T - Phenolic, almost a raw grain flavor, ends slightly tart. A slight aftertaste of yeast.

M- Smooth, tart and carbonated. Very interesting.

Overall - A good introduction into this style, refreshing summer drink.

Bomber poured into a tulip.

A-Bubbly dark gold with a finger and half of cream white head that fades to a crown. Visible lacing.

S-Smells very light and refreshing, fruity sweet, hints of grain, coriander and fresh grass.

T-Wow, very light and refreshing hops followed by a banana caramel malt sweetness. Some light spicy herbal notes and straw in the middle.

M-Medium bubbly mouthfeel, very champagne-like, smooth.

O-I've been trying more saisons this summer and this might be my favorite. This is a must try if you like saisons.

Great beer. Opened it and could hear the carbonation, very bubbly. Very smooth to drink from start to finish. This is definitely a beer to drink again and again.

The smell was sweet and the first sip was as good as last. I could see drinking this on a hot summer day while hanging out with friends.

A: Hazy, golden-amber in color; head was thick and white, with fair retention and decent lacing.

S: Complex, fairly strong without overpowering the nose. Grain presence is slight. There's a mix of several fruity aromas, and I can't identify all of them (but grapes, pears, and citrus are all present, and maybe a whiff of banana. Spicy notes of white pepper and more are also in there.

T: This ones skips right over the sweet malts. There's a brief moment of dry, grain flavor, then the tartness hits and overwhelms the palate like a crashing wave -- I detect tart grapes, bergamot, and grapefruit, the last of these becoming more pronounced in the finish, even taking on the bitter flavor of grapefruit rind. As if fades, just dry bitterness remains.

M: Crisp, fairly-well carbonated, but with a touch of astringency in the dry finish.

O: A moderately strong-flavored beer that would likely pair well with a full-bodied French cheese (memo to me for next time...) The dry, bitter finish detracted a little from the experience, but overall it was worth trying.
