3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Le Saint-Bock - Montreal, QC. Aroma carries a slightly catty, base malt twinged aroma. This is terse and a bit biting, with qualities reminscent of Fantome’s off-the-wall eccentricity. The gummy hoppiness runs up against dry minerals and a good malty base. It’s funny, though, side-by-side with the Jandrain I’d just had, this doesn’t hold a candle for a light, wheaty, funky brew. Good, not great.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml green bottle. Golden colour, pouring very clear. Impressive dense white foam is clingy and long lasting. Nose has sweetish orange and some lemon peel, grass notes build and spiciness emerges halfway through the bottle. Taste has citrusy fruitness, some floral notes, bready malt, light grassy hop taste and some yeast at the end. Pleasant bitterness with herbal/grassy notes, medium hoppy aftertaste, mild spice. Medium body, lots of carbonation. Well executed.

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!
