From a chilled 650 bomber in a Leffe chalice A> Light wheat aromas, citrus, earthy and biscuits. A> golden, slightly hazy, head was not as pronounced or frothy as expected. T> slightly spiced, light sweetness, a hint of sour finish. P> medium body, fizzy with a lingering woody finish. O> a decent if somewhat underwhelming saison. Easily drinkable but was hoping for something more lively. Would recommend to those newly trying the style.

On tap at The Round Venue in Kensington Market, Toronto. Poured straw yellow with thin white head. Faint somewhat sour aroma. Sharp somewhat thin palette and considerable carbonation. Sour, lightly citrus taste with bitter finish. Not happy with this.

Late summer pour on patio at Rhino. Not my favourite Black Oak offering. I get fresh cut wood, spring flowers & old tea bags on the tongue.

sudomorph (838) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2013 On tap at Session Muskoka and 650ml bottle. Pours a pale orange with a white, one finger head that thins to a bubbly ring. Aroma is a touch sweet with notes of orange citrus, yeast, and a bit of a funk. Light smell. Taste is a touch bitter but refreshing. Low to medium body. Medium carbonation. A bit watery in the mouth but smooth with a clean finish. Very nice.

On tap. Hazy orange pour. Aroma is a citrus, a little coriander, band aide, yeast. Watery mouthfeel. It a little hopper than a typical saison. Dry finish. A bit bland but inoffensive. It’s not bad.
