Pours a cloudy light straw yellow with a small white top. Aroma is spicy rye, yeast, a little hop. Taste is a nice warming dry, spicy rye, yeast and a great bready malt profile. Slight hop bitterness in the aftertaste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
20100814 tap at max’s. Aroma is white glue, dirty sock, apple, American cheese. Weird weird stuff. Plum and pale cherry. No idea how to assess this one, frankly. Flavor has light sweetness and good though surprising acidity. Sweet-tart. Meh, I’m not loving it.

INFECTED.... Opened without any pop, poured a viscous pale golden color with no head. Aromas of sour petrol and rotten fruit. Sipped the same Yuck. Looks like pediococcus to me... hope to try another bottle soon and reassess. On to the station #55.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 750ml bottle. This is a very yeast driven saison. Fruity, banana, some rustic yeasty farmhouse qualities. A good beer, but not that great of a saison.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden orange in colour with a thin white coloured head, light lacing. The aroma was of oranges, lemons, some spice, bread and yeast. The flavour has some grapefruit, moderate bitterness, lots of citrus, yeast, must and a bit of brett. Lightly bitter mouthfeel, medium body, medium/high carbonation. Finishes bitter, with yeast and spice.
This didn’t have as much grapefruit as the Station 10 that I just had but was a bit more intense in the flavour. Moderate amounts of alcohol at times, quite refreshing.
Draught at Mondial 2008, Montreal, Quebec.
Sampled on May 29, 2008.

Tap @ Cask Days. Very hazy golden yellow, soft but resilient white head. Nose is tons of yeast, bright fruits, banana, clove, apple skins - a very aggressive nose. Flavor is bright apple skin, light must, eyast, lemony banana. Earthy fruit in the finish. Very nice and verrrry aggressive.

on tap at volo cask days 2008. perfect hazy deep golden with a big fluffy white head. aromas are fruit esters with some saison funk and yeast. the flavour are of big full bodied saison. esters, spice, some sourness and yeast. the hops are there throughout but really shine on the finish. a very good saison and beers like this are why saisons are one of my new favourite styles.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at brewpub
Appearance : Hazy amber with a medium white creamy head. Lots of lacing.
Aroma : Woody ans acidic. Slightly lactic. Oak sourness.
Taste : Acidic, light woody. Light notes of rye. Quite fruity. Finish is acidic and dry. Finish is also a bit mineral. Carbonation really soft, almost flat.
Overall : Very nice looking. Great wood sourness. Nice wilderness and fruityness. This is not something I could drink more than one glass of because there is too much oak sourness and lactic notes. Carbonation was way too soft in my opinion but I’m pretty sure that it’s not that flat normally. The beer in general could also feel more polished.
