Lightly hazy, dark golden color with a small white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of cloves, phenols, some hay, light spices, honey, and light alcohol. Taste of sweeter honey, some clove, hay, light spices, and a slightly sweet finish.

Pours orange, not really clear, with brighter white head and some lacing. The aroma is sweet, pleasant, with some subtle toffee and grassy notes. The flavor is sweet, smooth, and a bit of grassy saison yeast with almost vanilla notes, as Steve had suggested I got them right away! Pretty nice for a saison from Canada!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden color, with moderately peppery nose with a hint of funk. Mouth is nice and dry, but lacked much complexity. Well balanced and well made, but really lacking funk that I need in a saison. Still very drinkable and very sessionable.

Bottle from Rapido. Pours a slightly hazy orange with a whole lot of white fluffy head that dissipates quickly and leaves lacing, plus some visible carbonation. Smell is slightly hoppy with citrus but also a bit sour with some spices. Palate is light bodied with some harsh carbonation. Taste is bitter at first but then gives way to an amazing strong apple taste, really incredible.

Beautiful hazy golden body with a huge white frothy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with malty, flowery, and citrusy hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries herbal and some spicy notes. Ends with a long bitter/herbal finish. Well done.
