2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A murky orange, with an active white head pour.
Aromas are funky, with vegetables, woodiness, and bitter nuts. Not pleasant.
Tastes are more of the same, with a hint of coriander and citrus fruit peels.
Better than a macro, but falling way short of most craft brews I’ve had.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can’t believe I new rated this one. Golden yellow colour. The aroma is a little strange, yeast and esters there is but there is a certain funk, like zucchini bread or another vegetal note with brown sugar sweetness. Not a fan of the aroma. Medium bodied note, some sugary texture and a fast finish. Not impressed.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - 650ml. Cloudy orange body with a fading off-white foamy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with malty, orange, coriander, and flowery hints. Its good malty/hoppy taste carries grainy., herbal, coriander, and citrusy notes. Ends with a decent bitter/herbal finish. Enjoyable.

Bottle from LCBO. Musty yeasty spicy aroma with plenty of orange. Taste is sweet, with orange, wheat and spice. Nice, but a tad too sweet and orangey. Still a quality beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I’m pretty disappointed by this. Black Oak makes some good beers but this just falls short of expectations and other beers in the style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, shared with TylerDurden. Deep copper orange, off white head. Bit if caramel, bit of ginger, kind if sweet for a saison, estery yeast keeps it from drifting too far afield. Easy drinker but a saison?

Pale orange with a nice white foam. Very pepper/coriander, some citrus and a little herbal. A little bitter, mainly in the aftertaste. Slick texture with a liively carbonation, quite not enough dry.
