3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle pours a cloudy golden color with a 2 finger white head that retains well and leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aromas are of pitted fruits and lemon. Taste is a lemon bitterness with a fruity and malty sweetness and some yeast notes in the finish. Medium bodied with some nice carbonation leaving a little tingle on the tongue. As far as saisons go this one is pretty good and recommended to sample.

A nice Saison. Lots of Triple qualities..like that belgian yeast strain, which brings out a nice sweet doughy/candy aroma. Similar flavours, with hints of sweet banana and a bitter grapefruit finish. Well balanced, and effervescent.

One of the better beers from Granville Island. A surprise. Flowery and sweet, nice head, that disappears quickly. I enjoyed this beer and I would drink it again.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Single bottle purchased from Kensington Wine Market in Calgary, AB on 11/20/2012. Colour: Light orange and medium yellow...typical saison. Lots of white foam that hangs around forever. Nose: Decent vanilla base with a big fruit background. Some Christmas spice also makes an appearance. Light hint of rubber. Taste: Medium sweet, medium-light bitter, medium-light sour. Sweeter than others Saison’s I’ve tasted - but the sweetness imparts a solid fruit base in the body, which is actually very tasty. The mild bitterness settles nice upon some starchy pasta like body. Quite enjoyable.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
If a rating falls in the forest does anyone hear? How bad can it be he thought as he pulled the bottle out of the fridge. Really have to stop listening to people in beer stores when buying beer....but hey isn’t that what this site is? Very carbonated dark cloudy yellow with a decent but safe head. Aroma at first is wheat beer but deeper into the bottle there is more sour lemon funk. First taste makes me think something is off. Settles in for the first half bottle but still something underneath. Cloudier portions of the bottle blend the funk, lemon and offness but there is still a background off flavour that runs across the back of the tongue.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Spices are strong in the nose over a sweet malt base with plenty of fruity esters. Hazy straw coloured body is topped by a generous fine bubbled white head that lasts well and leaves some lace. Spices and fruity esters are strong also in the flavour. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Perhaps not entirely traditional but definitely quite drinkable. Bottle purchased at the tap room in September 2012.
