Great Lakes chill Winston Belgian grisette 3.8% a clear light gold pour with a filmy white head. The aroma is solidly fruity, belgiannyesst and spicy soba. Medium to full bodied the taste is a fruity  & spicy saison flavor - very full on with tons of taste, good spice, banana and soba. Great.

Can from the brewery. Golden body with a very slight haze and large & fluffy white head. Subtle aroma of dusty lemon, light yeast, a bit of coriander. Flavour is similarly subdued, and hits similar notes to the flavour, along with a herbal/grassy tone in the finish. A simple, summery beer - I’ve got no problem with that.

Tap at bar volo, Toronto. Spicy yeast aroma.., light to medium body, medium carbonation. Light pepper, touch of cloves. Fine. A little thin and a bit boring. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bendrixian (1097) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 26, 2014
On tap at a takeover in Newmarket. Hazy golden colour. I find the aroma very muted and lacking that certian estery spicyness that i expected. On the palate i find this one flat, almost watery. It is a smooth brew with yeasty notes and a leafy bitteryness but boring overall.

473ml can from brewery. Pours a cloudy yellow, with lots of white head, which doesn’t last too long. Smells like farmhouse, citrus and herbs. Taste is much the same. Really tasty and quaffable. Nice light saison.

Scent of yeast, pear, and honey. Opaque straw colour. Flavour of pear, honey, and lightly roasted malt. Medium body with mild carbonation. Quite pleasant.

Idiosynkrasie (3730) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 4, 2014
650ml bottle [3.8% abv]. Clear, pale, yellowish golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Typical Grisette aroma, herbal, floral, citrusy, yeasty. Taste is pale malty with subtle sweetness, hoppy and yeasty overtones with hints of lemon, a herbal and floral touch. Light bodied as expectable considering its abv, but without reduction of flavours.

probstblueribbon (2892) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2014
Pint at the Loon. Hazy golden with a small white head. Nice citrus, light spice, nice esters, green and herbaceous, light Pils malt. Medium-ish body, gentle effervescence. Sine citrus, s little cardboard, light solvent and floral notes, not as interesting as these nose; dry with fair bitterness and a somewhat empty finish. Not bad considering the abv, still needs a little more flavour.
