Spab (2404) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2013
750 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a hazy golden colour with large, puffy white head. Aroma is wheat, zesty citrus and pepper. Flavour has Belgian yeast, wheat, lemon zest and light peppery spiciness. Nice.

Radek Kliber (6470) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 12, 2013
Bottle 750 ml
Aroma: strong wheat notes , slight grassy feel with soft wheat wrap. Aromatic rendering of weizen.
Look: clear golden with large creamy off white top. Remnants of lace. Handsome.
Taste: full bodied. Golden malts blended with wheat softens on Belgian yeast. Nice play. I am not sure if I would put this under saison. Belgian wheat with American bend.

TheJester (1883) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2013
750 mL bottle. Bit of a gush when opened. Golden with a big, beautiful, white head. The head quickly fades to a small, sticky lump. The aroma is middling in strength, and quite earthy, with that typical Belgian note in the background. Flavour is fairly typical at first, but it finishes dry and bitter. (For the style). Nice.

chris__hartley (274) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2013
It pours gold coloured with a slight reddish tint; the head is off-white and mousse-like. The aroma has notes of: sweet malts, pepper, orange-zest, and a very slight vanilla. The taste is light sweet that finishes medium dry; there are notes of: orange-zest, pepper, grapefruit-zest, and alcohol. The palate is medium-light boded, medium carbonation (medium bubbles), and a medium bitter finish. Overall, a letdown considering the brewery’s reputation.

JesseM (1151) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2013
750mL Likbo. Hazy gold with a huge white head. Aroma: citrus, Belgian malt body, yeast, minor funk but that might just be my imagination. Flavour: Quite nice, loads of pale malt and Belgian-esque malt character with some dull feeling yeast and booze. It’s not unpleasant but I’m surprised at how ’strong’ this one tastes considering its only 6%. A touch of pepper in the finish and lingering malty notes. This brewery is consistently top-notch and I really appreciate that. It paired great with my grilled codfish.

shaynsawchuk (485) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2013
750 mL bottle. Pours straw yellow with a thick white head. Big yeasty aroma with apple, banana and spicy phenols; clove and allspice. Mild cotton candy sweetness, super smooth and very refreshing. A touch of earthy funk here as well as it warms up a little. Fine champagne like texture. A damn tasty saison, but I’m a sucker for the style.

hangunder (233) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2013
Mainly belgian yeast, some clove, slight sourness, sweet smell. Looks nice, hazy yellow with long lasting white foamy head. Highly carbonated, very clean upfront, don’t get much till the carbonation dies down, belgian yeast mainly on the finish with a good amount of hop bitterness on the tongue and a hint of sourness. Medium bodied and very dry. Good and unique.

Metalchopz (2287) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2013
Found at Marché Omni. Pours a very slight hazy, light golden colour with a big creamy white head that lasts a very, very long time and chunks out foamy lacing. The smell at first reminds me of my first Unibroue experiences when they started. Spicy nose (peppery) with the Belgian Ale yeast, mild grass and citrus. Beautiful mouthfeel with just a little dryness in the finish, from the hop. Not overly bitter with a 35 IBU, which works well for this one. Very well-balanced taste of milder spices with the rest. The fruity aspect of a Saison are here, but come in and out as it breathes. Goes down very nicely and can be enjoyed any time of the year.

dresden (854) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle from Phil, Thanks! Clear golden with an enormous tight foaming head that fades to a pile of meringue, interesting. Aroma is citrus, and yeast, some spice. Taste is strong of pepper, some lemon and spice. Great beer for a summer day.

Thanks northropfrye for sharing. Pours a hazy yellow with tonnes of whipped cream like head. Sweet candy and pastry aromas. Flavours are sweet and citrus at first. Then hoppy and medicinal at the end. Nice stuff.
