solidfunk (7613) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 22, 2013
A little more along the Golden Ale line than the Belgian ale category. Pours golden with some head and lacing. Has light florals and some yeast. Good balance, just light. Average carbonation. Tap at Barhop.

Sammy (11173) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2012
On tap at The Only Cafe. Yellow, with rising carbonation bubbles. Some head, and very thick laceing. Creamy weissy, a good drinker and a cross style with so much weiss element, bannana

pushkinwow (2568) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2012
On tap at Atomic Rooster. Light clear copper with a small soft white head. Some dough and yeast, nice malt, slight bitterness which balances out with a bit of buckwheat honey. Moderate carbonation and mild body, more on the bitter side with a nice grainy and malt finish with hints of yeast and some spice.

HogTownHarry (6375) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2012
September 21, 2012 - on draught at Burger Bar. Pale clear gold with a decent lasting foamy/fizzy white head. Aroma seems about 50/50 average Belgian Golden Ale (Chimay White) and a sweet saison, moderate alcohol. Taste follows, a little grassiness. Average body, almost stinging yet low-level carbonation, quickish finish, maybe a little sweet clover in the aftertaste; clean, simple, very nice drinker.

blankboy (7216) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2012
Draught at Volo, Sept. 14. Pours a clear gold with a small diminishing white head. Aroma is grainy along with some sweet honey and some herbal notes. Flavour follows the aroma: Grainy along with pale malt, some honey and it’s quite herbal. Average to medium bodied. It’s simple but it’s a pretty good beer.

jercraigs (9835) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2012
2012-09-14. Crisp dark yellow body with a small creamy white head. 3+ Mild flavour is quite subtle and nuanced, bit of pale malt, doughy bready touches, light wheat like grains are on the sweet side. Floral/fruity notes. Sumac (I assume) shows more in the aroma, fruity floral notes, modest notes of wheaty-cereal-grains. Very smooth average plus bodied palate. 3+ Pretty decent. On tap at C’est What Festival of Small Breweries
