Pours a hazy yellow colour with big white foam that leaves tons of lace all up the glass. Aroma is zesty citrus, fruity esters, floral, and some spicy peppery phenols. Flavour is peppery, zesty, mildly bitter orange, and some light tart sourness.

Pint on tap at Oliver Square location poured hazy orange color with foamy white head that slowly settled to some fine lacing. Aromas of grainy malt, citrus fruits and yeast. Taste is slightly sour with some citrus and yeast and a peppery spice and hop finish. Could be the best beer Brewsters has made to date. Very refreshing with nice body and carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Favourble pours seem to be becoming the norm around here. Orangy brew with a nice white crown and a bit of spotty lacing. Pineapple and yeast greet my nose, sweet oranges, faint lemon and a bit of spice - pretty impassive I’d say for Brewsters. There may even be a touch of funk. What is this flavor???? I don’t believe it - this beer is way off the board from the recipies I’m used to here. Very good flavor! Pineapple, funk, tartness (lots!), sour citrus with a mild pepper snap. Goes back great with lingering sourness and citrus tartness. Damn refreshing. Easily the best Brewsters beer I’ve had.

I love this beer. Had on tap at the 11th Avenue Calgary location. Pour of orange cloudy beige with a fluffy white head. Aroma of fruits, spices, banana. Taste is slightly coriander with hints of apple, banana and tropical fruits. Some lacing and a clean finish. Very similar to a hefe. Pretty darn good beer overall.

YEAH! Brewsters bottle their seasonals in Calgary now! This poured a cloudy orangy-yellow with a puffy white head. No lace. Bubblegum banana spice aroma. Heavier on the spice. As it settles more fruit comes forward with fresh pineapple coming to mind. Yeasty and fruity and very estery. I agree with Presario that this is a split personality beer but I find that the character falls more heavily on the hefe side of things. Still a well made brew for sure!

On tap. Cloudy dark yellow, almost orange, with a thin white head. Dirty funky scent with lots of fruit. Light drinkable Saison, almost too clean. Chalky character and finish. Half a Hefe, half a Saison.
