3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Opener on Jan 17th 2016 from a 500ml bottle. The brett is apparent upfront as this ale starts with a strong yeasty aroma, some barnish scents with wet hoppy notes. The brilliant sunshinr colour and thin white head brighten this beer. Mellow bitter taste at first but we’ll balanced. Lemon zesty flavours and some light barely apparent mint notes makes this beer slightly astringent. Drink this beer with spicy meat and rich cheeses.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Robe jaunâtre voilée, col de mousse timide, léger dépôt au fond du verre. Arômes de citron, orange, bretts, vin blanc fruité et miel. Acidulée à point. En bouche, citron, bretts, lime, orange mûre. Une finale qui laisse ressortir des effluves de bois, raisin et miel. Une sensation plus amer sur le palais ainsi qu’un côté plus acidulé. Texture légère, effervescence un peu faible.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 5, 2016 Rating 500: Smells vingary and funky. Bottle almost exploded, lost probably a quarter of it to the wall/ceiling/floor, hazy gold with little head. Lots of woodiness, tastes somewhat similar to white wine but more sour, fairly light bodied and lots of carbonation, the light body leaves a little bit of heat from the alcohol. Lots of bizarre yeasty flavours from the brett, very funky beer, nice one Bellwoods! Re-rate: I’ve drank this beer so much and love it more every time so giving it a few more points.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2016 My Bottom Line:
Hay-laced brettanomyces is met by caprine angles and citrusy hops, as white wine connotations stick the landing.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the misty golden.
-The honeyed residual sugars in the tap version surprised me.
-The complexity of this one is highly enjoyable, yet remains low profile if you are not paying attention.
-The higher carbonation in the bottle works wonderfully, increasing the perception of dryness.
Bottles, and on tap at Siboire, Sherbrooke.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Ferris, thanks bud! This is a batch 5 bottle that is almost a year old. Appearance is a crisp yellow with light white head. Aroma is jam packed with citrus, white grapes, and musty funk. Taste is light funk, pepper, yeasty esters,and white wine. Finshes bone dry, with a light peppery aftertaste. This is delicious, very refreshing stuff!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by Barry, poured cloudy gold with average head/lace. Notes of candy dryer sheet, florals, and brett earth. Spicy and a bit and Belgiany but overall a decent saison from Canada eh.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Gold pour with a good sized head. Loads of lace. Strong tropical fruit and brett aroma. Quite funky, brett, tropical fruit, spicy, barrel aging is there but subtle, which works for a brew like this. Slightly herbal. Medium bodied. Cant wait till its brewed again.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, batch 4. I’ve enjoyed several batches at different times and the ratings are consistently high. Probably one of my favourites from them.
Pours cloudy yellow with a huge white frothy head.
Huge enticing aroma of peach, tangerine and biscuit.
Robust flavour with oaky chardonnay notes. Quite excellent.
