[6701-20140826] Bottle. Yeasty straw and fruity aroma. Hazy, pale orange yellow body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head. Bitter fruity straw yeast flavour. Medium body. Quite tasty. (7/4/8/4/15) 3.8

HippyHop (267) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 9, 2014
Pour is hazy gold with a big, pillowy cap that lasts forever. Nose is tropical fruit and citrus hoppiness with funky, bready saison yeast aromas. Taste-wise it’s a saison with a North American IPA hop profile. Finish is very bitter, maybe too bitter as someone below noted, but overall this is an interesting take on a saison, especially for a hop head like me.

Gorbalev (2957) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 29, 2014
Bottle, thanks Colin! Light hazy yellow, foamy white head. Nice yeasty zest citrus aroma. Well carbonated body. Super hoppy taste - almost too much - becomes unbalanced a bit with the yeasty flavour. But this is an incredibly falvourful saison - crisp, tingly, spicy and really quenching. Nice stuff.

Lovely tropical hops, bready wheat, lemon tart, floral notes, dry finish. Outstanding fruity saison, one of my favorite.

hellonearth (63) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2014
Au nez, citron, crême et fleurs. A l’oeil, un jaune un peu voilé avec une riche mousse durable. Au goût, épices, fleurs, herbes et pamplemousse. D’une généreuse amertume qui coupe sec. Super! (Très belle étiquette de l’illustrateur Jesse Jacobs!)

veronneaupy (179) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 26, 2014
Au nez, c'est une explosion d'orange et de pêches sucrées qui attaquent votre nez. En bouche, c'est rafraîchissant, orangé, un peu sucré avec un beau goût de levures pas trop envahissant. La finale est assez courte, sèche et orangée. Une ou la meilleure saison québécoise que j'ai goûtée. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Boutip (4868) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 23, 2014
Bottle: Poured a hazy dirty beige color ale with a large off-white foamy head with good retention and great lacing. Aroma of dry hoppy notes with some floral notes with some funky yeast notes also clearly identifiable. Taste is also dominated by a mix of dry hoppy notes with nice floral undertones and some dry funky yeasty notes with some rustic malt also noticeable. Body is pretty full with good carbonation. Nice tasting beer but I would have like the hoppy notes to be more upfront with less of the funky yeast note apparent.

blankboy (6277) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2014
[My bottle (750ml) shared with Ferris, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o Glouglouburp] Pours a cloudy gold with a large lasting frothy white head and lots of lacing. Aroma of hay, yeast, pepper, light fruity hops and grain. Refreshing flavour is yeasty and peppery along with light fruity hops, hay, light herbal notes and a moderate dry spicy finish. Average bodied. Enjoyable stuff.

jercraigs (8070) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2014
2014-08-26. Lightly hazy dark yellow body with a large foamy white head. 4+ Aroma is dry and musty, lightly grassy. 7+ Flavour is similarly dry, grassy hops, good amount of bitterness mild lemon and light funk. Smoth average to light bodied palate, soft effervescent carbonation. Pretty solid. Lemon comes out more as it warms (and more so in a second bottle I shared later with no notes taken).
