neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2014
On tap at the brewpub, served in a tasting glass. Pours cloudy golden with a moderate white, fluffy head that remains and laces well. The nose has notes of pale malt, grass, lemon, citrus, coriander and orange peel. The flavour is dry with a nice moderate hoppiness up front that picks up and leads to a long, hoppy bitter finish. Notes of Belgian spice, lemon, white pepper, coriander and citrus peel come through as well. On the palate it is light-medium in body with a dryish texture and average carbonation. Overall, quite a nice hoppy saison. The bitterness really picks up in the end, making for a refreshing spicy summery brew. 2014-05-02

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - APR 30, 2014
4oz pour at the Fare. This was a treat. Aroma of banana, lemon, cornmeal, and barnyard. Pours really murky with a weird peach blonde color, almost like an unfiltered apple cider. Taste is lemon zest, barnyard, banana, slight nutmeg, and pepper. Very light and nice with some kickass taste. Reminds me of a really well-made grissette.

hopscotch (10644) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle... Hazy light-yellow pour with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The bouquet is a spicy, grainy fusion of coriander, wheat and grains of paradise. Medium-bodied with jazzy carbonation. The flavor is almost painfully bitter with only a trace of acidity. Bone-dry finish. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!
