Metalchopz (2595) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 13, 2014
Bomber from the LCBO, under "Black Oak Saison" now (not summer). Pours a clear golden-amber colour with a frothy white cap, good retention because of very active carbonation. Gets a little hazy at the next pour. Mostly orange aromas from the zest. Citrus notes, honey and pepper. Pretty much the same for the taste, but milder. The wheat comes out in the finish. Pretty good overall, but missing a little balance to be a nice Saison.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2014
22 oz bottle at the Hart House Craft Beer Festival, served in a tasting glass. Pours clear amber with a small white head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a small amount of lace. The nose has big Belgian spice, with citrus, soft hops, earth and pale malts. The flavour is lightly sweet with a moderate spiciness and subtle hoppiness. The finish is lightly spicy with malts and earth. On the palate it is medium in body with a milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, a decent, but somewhat simple, saison. Light and refreshing for summer, but not overly complex. 2014-07-31

Ferris (7575) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle - Citrus, fruity esters and spice. Hazy gold with a rich white head. Light malts, light fruit and some citrus, with a bit of yeast in the finish. Basic but nice.

lesifflebiere (1453) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 15, 2014
Blonde dorée au col de mousse blanche, le nez étant de céréales blondes, de paille, avec un peu d’orange pour garnir. La bouche est sèche, avec un peu de fruits à la fin, le côté typiquement poivré des saison, bien que tardif ici, est bel et bien présent. Un peu aqueux sur les bords. Une saison mince, sèche, désaltérante mais implacable, aux malts dominants face aux houblons. Agréable, presque délicieuse même, mais sa relative originalité ne la sert que pour un temps ; au final, elle est facilement surpassée.

Helsdon (274) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2014
Pours amber with next to no head. Nose of hops, honey and roasted malts. Bitter hops, with the same in the aftertaste, honey flavour, malts, and citrus on a long draw. Meh.

Stephane_Houle (206) - - JUL 8, 2014
Apparence: D?une couleur ambrée semi-claire, elle est coiffée d?une bonne mousse d?une bonne durée. Effervescence inexistante. Arômes: Au nez, ce sont des notes de malt frais et d’agrumes. Saveurs: Au goût, c’est un goût de céréales qui domine. C’est très frais et un bon goût d’agrumes, principalement orange, juste assez présent. Aucune amertume et ni effervescence par contre et une certaine effervescence aurait été apprécié. Fiche technique Style: Saison Format: 650 ml Taux d?alcool: 4,5%

rejtable (1703) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2014
Makes for an ok witbier. Pours orange/straw with limited head and very little lacing. Nose is yeast and orange. Flavours of yeast, orange peel, some light cereal. floral. Taste is light sweet and light/medium bitter. Medium body with lively carbonation and a pretty dry finish.

probstblueribbon (3277) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2014
Bomber from LCBO, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear orange-amber with a decent, frail white head. Aroma: Floral, earthy coriander, light citrus, wheat/bread/yeast, dusty, more Wit than Saison. Palate: Medium-ish body, fairly full carbonation. Flav.: Dusty, floral, wheat, bread dough and yeast, earthy coriander, light citrus, still Wit more than Saison; dry with mild bitterness and a dusty, floral, coriander, yeast finish.

Fairly drinkable. Misses the mark for style by quite a bit.

Alpha10 (417) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
2014/06/17 - Pours a translucent orange/amber colour with a fizzy, off white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is orange, biscuit, yeast, earth tones and a hint of funk. Taste follows nose; orange citrus, yeast, biscuit, mild caramel, spices and a touch of funk. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with biting carbonation and a tart, drying finish. Not very exciting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
