fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 28, 2012
Draught at the brewpub
Hazy blond color. Delicate aroma, spicy, with a light herbal and musky character. Smooth and dry mouthfeel; spicy, good yeast activity, with a hint of coriander and sage; relatively strong bitterness; the final has a grassy trace.
Positively aggressive.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 30, 2012
Golden and slightly hazy. Lots of coriander in the nose, along with orange and a hint of footy yeastiness. Complex, w lots of yeasty character and again a big coriander finish. Light melon fruitiness late. Good saison, just refreshing enough.

Lubiere (9734) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2012
A lightly hazed golden saison with a thin lacing off white head. In aroma, a smooth sweet malt with catty hops, incense, nice spices, very nice. In mouth, a nice spiced up saison with nice bittering herbs, fruity esters, nicely balanced. On tap at brewery, June 24 2012.

Sammy (8354) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2012
Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. Vey much in the style although not exceptional, I enjoyed the corriander punch. Pale yellow and lots of lace. Mild funk and lots of leather in the aroma. Smooth mouthfeel. Yeasty, easy drinking.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2012
Tap at Bar Volo. Very pale straw-coloured pour with a thick moussey white head. The nose is very spicy. Lots of fresh minerally character and some fairly yeasty spice. A little bit of white pepper and a touch of mentthol. There is an odd sort of vegetal/fishy flavour that I wasnt quite banking on. I cant decide if itís hot side oxidation or something else strange. On the nose it has a really interesting lightness that is quote appealing but I canít quite get past the strange flavour. Itís not bad by a longshot and the dryness and lightness are quite nice but thereís something there that Iím just not a fan of.

jercraigs (7456) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2012
2012-04-01.Lightly hazy golden body with a nice foamy white head. 3+ Dry aroma, light peppery spice and mild yeast. 7+ Flavour is similar, fairly dry overall, sweeter pale malt middle, light peppery spice lingers in the finish. Smooth average plus bodied palate. Relatively simple saison, it has slightly more pale malt than some, but this is pretty close to being textbook. Lovely example of the style. On tap at Bellwoods, Toronto

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2012
Draught at Bellwoods. Cloudy, fairly lively-looking gold, decent fizzy/creamy white head. Smell - spice, yeast, some fruity sweetness, hint of banana and alcohol, grassy background. Taste follows, but huge grassy bitterness and way less fruit - very spicy. Solid body and carbonation with an almost amazingly long dry grassy pungent finish. Yummmmm!

blankboy (5948) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2012
Draught at the brewpub, May 7. Pours a cloudy pale gold with a small to average size semi-lasting frothy white head. Lovely aroma is herbal, spicy and sweet along with yeast, wheat and grain. Nice flavour, very grassy and herbal along with light spices, wheat, grain, a good amount of hops and a dry, spicy, bitter finish. Average bodied. Great stuff.

mabel (5414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 25, 2012
[4364-20120401] Tap. Bready yeast aroma has a hint of lemon pip and light floral notes. Hazy, bright yellow orange body with a medium-lasting creamy white head and lattice lacing. Lightly bittered lemon zesty yeast flavour has a little zing finish and some dry peppery floral notes. Medium body has a light tang. Lovely bitter yeasty saison base, quite drinkable. (7/4/7/4/16) 3.8
