Smell: white bread, banana, clove, white pepper. Palate: frothy carbonation, full bodied, light sour note. Finish: phenolic dryness, spicy, lemongrass. Another well made Bellwoods beer! A drinkable saison/farmhouse (flavorful without obnoxious sour notes). (bottled at 5.4% ABV, June 2016)

jamestulloch (3304) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 25, 2016
Keg at the brewery. Hazy golden body with a thin white head. Faint lacing. Aroma of dried apricot, white pepper and white bread. Flavour of lemon zest, underripe peach and sparkling water. Thin to medium body with a spritzy mouthfeel. Lively fizz. Earthy and crisp.

crossovert (11015) - Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2016
Draft. Its a pretty basic imperial style saison, some phenolic notes, bit of a sweet malt note.

Hidden_Pooch (517) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - APR 24, 2016
Pours a hazy gold colour. Aroma is of lemongrass and spices. Tastes of lemongrass, spice, and cereal. Has a medium body with a light tartness that makes it very drinkable. Found it very mild tasting, but great flavour.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2016
500ml bottle. Hazy golden-orange in colour with a large and long lasting white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is very bretty, lots of yeast, fruit, lemons, spice. The flavour is of brett, apples, some grains, spice, yeasty. Lightly bitter mouthfeel, medium body, high carbonation. Finishes long, yeasty, some spice. Another excellent beer from Bellwoods. The brett in this is fantastic.

BrewGoblin (632) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - FEB 12, 2016
Winter isn’t the typical time in Canada to think of Saison season yet this tasty number is a paragon of farmhouse juice excellence. Brilliantly transparent gold, a stiff white peak lasting for days, spicy and floral hops, light funk, bubblegum, cereal, orange...it is all here. At 7% it remains light and sessionable (tasting), the body crisp and refreshingly dry.

MarkoR (903) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2015
500 ml bottle from the brewery. Pours a hazy yellow colour with a huge white head. Nice lacing and retention. Aroma is wheat, Belgian yeast, some tropical fruits. Taste is same, with some citrus. Very good beer. Got an ABV of 5.4% for this one. New batch?

Tranquillity (1775) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2015
Draught at the brewery. Hazy yellow-orange body, large white head. The aroma is like a white wheat beer in Germany. The taste is a bit weaker and more watery than a typical Belgian wit though.
