Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - JUN 30, 2012
Hazy tan. Phenolic and slightly fruity aroma, with maybe some barrel influence. Tart and sweet, oaky and fruity. Finishes a little bit tart. Fun, new world interpretation of saison.

Nice lightly tart saison with lightly fruity yeast. Amber malts with a watery mouth feel and soft carbonation. Interesting beer to try.

pushkinwow (2034) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 20, 2012
On tap at the 20th Vermont Brewers Festival. Hazy light amber with a biege head. Liked the saison and farmhouse aroma - bit sour and tart, some spice, grains, citrus, wheat. Full body, moderate to low carbonation, great mouthfeel, long pleasant and fresh finish. Worth seeking out.

Boutip (4775) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 18, 2012
Draft: Poured a dirty beige color ale with a medium size foamy had with OK retention. Aroma consists of rustic malt with floral and herbal notes. Taste is a complex mix between some rustic malt notes with some floral undertones and light herbal notes. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation. Nice mix between complexity and drinkability. I would love to have this beer available to me on a more regular basis.

Sampled at Max’s in Baltimore. Pours a hazy, bright gold with a fizzy, white head. Sour nose, fruity, a little horsey, a little herbal. Flavor is sweet, sour, a little spicy, candy sugar, honey. Medium bodied, sweet, honey finish. Interesting.

blankboy (6150) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2010
Draught at Volo. Pours a murky orange-copper with a small diminishing creamy/frothy white head. Nice sour fruity aroma, also yeasty and with light spices -- more sour then I would expect from a Saison but it’s quite nice. Flavour follows the aroma with sour fruit, some citrus tartness, yeast and light spices. Average to medium bodied. Another great beer from Hopfenstark.

rodenbach99 (3183) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 15, 2010
A pint on draught. Cloudy orange with a thin head. Stange sour nose. A bit thin on the mouth with a solid tartness and some sourness. No hop flavour. A nice session beer. I think the sample at Le Grillon was a bit old. I will resample from another bar.
