My rating for this beer seems to be an outlier, by far. Nonetheless, I had this at St. Veronous in Peterborough, Ontario, when it was featured as the "guest beer". I had ernestly meant to spend the week-end drinking my way through St. Veronous’ massive collection of Belgians, when this brew stopped me in my tracks. I spent four sessions at the establishment and couldn’t resist having this again and again. Aroma: 5/5. Simply fantastic! Citrus, honey, and long-forgotten teen-age girlfriends. Apperance: decently thick head that only abates after a few minutes to leave a lovely light covering and decent ring. Taste: huge corriander and a little citrus. Sweeter than expected, but wholly welcome. Good malt backing, but fruit, flowers, spice and honey are the stars. Supremely drinkable as any session should. Last drops go down like an epic greek tragedy...

Bottle in Brew Box. Dark clear yellow with fine bubbled dense head. Aroma if straw and lemon. Straw and lemon flavours. Touch of bitterness in aftertaste, mild malty backbone.

Fairly standard North American saison rip-off. A bit too sweet for my liking considering the style.

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.

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.

Eructoblaster (3656) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
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.

kevinsenn (1877) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2014
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.
