Sammy (11056) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2011 Modiale 2007. A little white head on cloudy orange. Appealing aroma of spice and yeast. Taste is great, fortified with rye, a good saison in a great style. Sourness in the finish. Good medium plus mouthfee. Lace in the glass. Refreshing. Had it again in 2008 and was not as enticing. Had it by bottle in 2011 and very ordinary farmhouse.

slowrunner77 (9925) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 27, 2014
"this was unique, especially in the aroma, tan with a medium-full body for the style. nice brew. aroma slightly hoppy, with a definite rye character, but also some bark (?) and earthy. the saisoniness is in the background in the flavor too, but it’s pretty nice all around."

jercraigs (9722) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2013 2013-05-31. Hazy golden orange body with a nice white head and lace. Aroma is lightly grainy, pale malt, light grains, light sourness. 7+ Flavour is quite pleasant, moderate sourness, pale malt. 7+ Average bodied palate, pleasantly effervescent carbonation. 3+ Pretty nice. 7/4/7/3/15-16 3.7 Bottle at Mondial de la Biere 2013, Montreal

2008-05-31. Crisp golden body with a nice foamy off-white head. (3+) Aroma is mild, light alcohol kissed grass, hops. (6+) Pleasant zippy bitterness alludes to lemons, mild grass, pale malt. More lemon and grass in the finish lingers pleasantly. (7+) Smooth average palate suits the beer. Decent but not my favorite of their offerings. 6/4/7/3/15 - 3.5 On tap, Mondial, Montreal, 4T

j12601 (9549) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 25, 2012
On tap at Hopfenstark during their anniversary party. Pours a hazy golden amber with a thin to medium sized white head. Soft floral yeast on the nose, spicy musk and toast. A little bit of esters. Medium bodied, sweet malt, floral notes and more yeast. Warm and spicy with a small amount of alcohol warming everything up. Finishes off with a long estery yeast note and a bit more spiciness. Very nice.

DuffMan (9495) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle, shared with Robbie. Very hazy straw yellow, lively white head. Very estery nose and palate, lacking significant hops, but this bottle may be old. Lightly spicy, chalky mouthfeel, dry finish. Not foul, but nothing stands out here.
