Nice bubblegum saison. Pours golden with good head. Light citrus and great balance. Love this kind of saison. Light sweet and tangy finish. Some hay and resin. Tap at Drake.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is clove, light funk, subtle earthiness, lemon grass, sweet maltiness and yeast. Taste is sweet malts and honey followed by slight funk, vinegar and sour grapes. Finishes with light clove and tartiness. Appearance is a cloudy gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This pours with a big, fluffy white head over an effervescent dark gold base. I was expecting something a little cloudier since it’s unfiltered. There are hints of spice, citrus and hay in the aroma. There’s citrus with a bit of banana, as well as some acidity that adds a hint of sourness, in the flavour. At 6.5 per cent alcohol and 30 IBUs, there’s nothing extreme about this beer. This definitely doesn’t rank among by favourite saisons, but I have a feeling that I would have liked this a bit more if I hadn’t just brushed my teeth before drinking it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 330 ml
Aroma: soft, floral with slight phenolic side to it. Prune, molases, rose, touch of vanilla.
Look: poured with large frothy, lasting cap. Decent lace created. Presentable brew.
Taste/Palate: medium lighter bodied, average carbonation. Slightly chewy top. Shorter walls. Strong bittering hop presence with fruity citrussy mid. Touch of spice with alcoholic heat at finish. Bit astringent. Overall decent ale.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Hazy unfiltered orange with a big billowing white head. Aromas of orange, boiled vegetables and gun metal.
Slightly harsh metallic overtones on the tongue. Pretty bitter for a Saison. I guess there is a hint of malt in there. This is my second least favourite Saison, a style I normally enjoy.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a pale hazed ale in the glass with a rich frothy white cap that lasts. Aroma is spicy, light biscuit tones, hoppy. Peppery mouth feel, very dry and refreshing. Flavor is sharp, bright, spicy-hoppy- clean dry finish - the epitome of the farmhouse ale genre - really drinkable and refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Part of the BC Craft Brewers Guild Natural Selections 6 pack (2014). Pours a cloudy golden-yellow colour with a big warm frothy cap, good retention and some foamy, almost creamy lacing. Belgian ale yeast aromas with light grass and some spices. A nice grassiness in the taste from the hops, creating a soft dry mouthfeel. Fruity flavours from the malts and yeast. Orange notes with mild tart lingering. Not your typical Canadian brew and pretty close to the Belgian ones.
