pintbypint (3326) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 3, 2012
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.

Spab (3278) - 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.

Nez de levures fruitées (agrumes, traces de pêches et de poires), légèrement épicées (poivre doux) et aux petites notes terreuses, de grains de céréales frais et légèrement sucrés, moyen de houblon floral aux notes hebreuses (herbes fraîches).

Post-goût moyen et sec, léger-moyen amer de houblon floral et légèrement herbeux avec un léger goût de levures fruitées (zeste d’agrumes) et épicées (poivre très doux).

Yeast bomb saison with tons of fruity esters. Pear banana and melon with some dirty bready yeasty malts. I dig it.

Minderbinder (3231) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2012
Bottle 750ml. Pours very clear golden/blond, with huge frothy white head. Very nice lacing. (note: second half of bottle poured hazy). Aroma is of citrus, spices, fruits. Taste is of citrus and spices. Fairly bitter. Interesting product, well balanced, refreshing.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - AUG 23, 2012
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.

northropfrye (3186) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 28, 2013
Thanks, Tommy. Yellow-orange body with loads of white head that looks like meringue. Funky citrus lemon aroma. Taste is slightly citrus acidic, grapefruit, sweet malts, vanilla. Nice.

More details to come later as I didn’t take the time to write down notes while bathing in the sun and drinking this. It’s official that there will be (many) repeat over the course of summer!

Damico (3137) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2012
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!
