blankboy (5971) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2012
Bottle [341ml] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o HogTownHarry. Pours a slightly cloudy very pale gold with an average size lasting frothy white head. Odd aroma of lemon, ginger, sugar, grain and floral notes. Watery flavour of herbs, ginger, honey, floral notes and lemon. Light bodied. Not bad but nothing special.

Bouteille de 341ml. Bière de belle couleur dorée claire, elle est translucide. La mousse blanche se fait discrète. Le nez est très frais. Les épices sont bien présentes, les fleurs aussi et le citron aussi mais par dessus tout le gingembre domine. La bouche est piquante, rafraichissante, facile et bien sur les goûts de gingembre sont bien présents. Un espèce de twist shandy de luxe.

Eructoblaster (2956) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 24, 2011
Bottle - 341ml. Pale blond body with heavy carbonation and a thin white bubbly head. Fresh malty/hoppy aroma with flowery, honeyish, and spicy hints. Taste is refreshing and well balanced, but it lacks strength and complexity. Ends with a short bitter/herbal finish. Decent summer beer.

MichaelLawrie (51) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 28, 2011
This was ok. The herbal character is very mild, accompanied with a slightly grassy malt caracter. It was very lightly carbonated, which I did not mind but others might.

Minderbinder (1693) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 1, 2012
Bottle. 341ml. Pours very clear, pale gold. "Almost" water-like. Not much head. Aroma is of flowers. Tastes flowers, hops. Crisp finish. Very drinkable and refreshing. "Clear" lack of complexity. Gives the impression of a cold chamomilla herbal tea. I do lie the flowers, but that’s really all that beer’s got.

Plain and boring. A slight hint of hay here and some citrus but that’s about all the saison around in this one. Pours golden, lager-like with decent head and lacing. Finish has light sourness. Bottle from Brou haha.
