probstblueribbon (3628) - 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 (548) - 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

deepeary (405) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2014
650 ml bottle from the LCBO. Smell is mostly mild citrus, with some faint funk. Pleasant tast, fruity, slight farmhouse funk. A bit minty and some caramel malt coming through. Would like it better if it had more barnyard funk to it.

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.

fullers (269) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2014
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 (1029) - 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.
