Thanks to jtd1969 for sharing this bomber with me.

A - pours a bright yellow with a nice cap of white head that has good retention that fades to a thin lacing

S - white grapes, faint coriander, Belgian yeast

T - white grapes, apples, faint spice

M - crisp, medium bodied

This is a decent saison. It's very drinkable, but not impressively flavored. It was nice to try once, but I'll probably pass in the future.

The appearance has a hazy golden yellow colored body. Lacing slides in the chalice but clings in the pint glass. The smell has orange peel up front combined with coriander, ginger and hops. Some lemon comes out more so as it warms. The taste is mainly citrus, yet spicy and somewhat refreshingly sweet. The palate is about a light to medium, sessionable, appropriately carbonated and for my liking. Overall, pretty nice Saison at least to me. I'd have again.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, vibrant, straw-gold coloring with a ton of tiny carbonation bubbles throughout the body and a sparse, filmy, bright white head. Nose of toast, clove, coriander, floral highlights, and a hint of nutmeg. Flavors are tangy sweet, with a buttery biscuit backbone and a flourish of spices, including clove and coriander. Very effervescent in the body, keeping the flavor profiles light and slightly frothed. The aftertaste is toasty and grainy, leading to a clean, effervesced finish that is crisp and slightly drying. Refreshing beer with a profile that is easy to drink, but a body that makes it a slow sipper.

For an unfiltered beer, it's awfully clear. Bright yellow, big head that slips down to nil with a quickness.

Aroma: Spice is on top of things, initially, backed up with citric notes, and Belgian funkification.

Taste: Crisp, refreshing bite, clean, smooth. Light bodied, with a mild hop bitterness. Light bodied, easy drinking. Bright citrus character reveals itself, distinguished from the spice.
Good hot weather quencher here. Very toss-back-able, although I feel it may be slightly strong, perhaps higher than 7%, but not much higher, could even be 8+? (No, it's 4.2%!)

I like this. Good beer, and I can drink it.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a bright yellow color with a 1 inch head, lots of carbonation. Smell is musty, spices, yeast. Taste is lots of spice, some lemons, a bit of mustiness as well, very easy drinking. Feels light in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer, but there are better saisons out there.
