jercraigs (7812) - 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

On tap at Vices & Versa. The color is a hazy honey with a light beige head. The aromA and taste is of spicies, also in the taste is malt. It is sweet but not to much. IIt leaves a nice aftertaste.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2008
On tap at Volo Cask Days 08. A sour/tart nose with a hint of yeast. Cloudy orange/golden with a minimal white head. Taste is sour fruit, yellow plums, white grapefruit and starfruit come to mind. Light bodied, very well balanced, complex, tart, dry and most refreshing. Terrific.

radiomgb (2249) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 11, 2009
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 didnít 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.

Fred82 (2115) - Quťbec City, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 23, 2010
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 Iím pretty sure that itís not that flat normally. The beer in general could also feel more polished.

checkmatei1 (765) - Willow Grove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2010
Draft: Poured an amber color with a white head. The aroma was yeast, citrus and wood. The flavor was rye, fruit, wood, and a little sourness. Overall, a complex beer that might not be for everyoneís palate.

manuchampions (1237) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2011
750ml bottle from trade. Exploded on opening, fountain of beer everywhere, probably 20% or more lost. Too bad, smells amazing. This was after more than 4 days of sitting in my cellar restfully. Ah well. Whatís left pours a hazy medium gold, high carbonation (duh) with an ample cream head. Aroma is all over the room but in the glass itís banana, light clove, rich honey sweetness, mild yeast, some bubblegum. Taste is rusty metallic in the first hit. Too bad, the other flavours of clove, banana, honey and gum get overwhelmed by this metal taste that just wonít go away. The underlying beer is quite lovely and perhaps less like a saison than like a Belgian Ale. Finish is slightly boozy, yeast mixed with gum and banana with that annoying metallic note still along for the ride. Damn, if it werenít for the explosion and the metal I think I would rate this a fair bit higher.

rejtable (1298) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2012
Pours orange with a big foamy head that fades to a nice light off-white covering with lots of lacing. Nose is big floral with some grapefruit as well. Mouth has orange, maybe some lemon and then a little bit of a spicy finish. Some sour in the middle as well. Light-ish body with strong carbonation.

bhensonb (11069) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Capped 750 from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours hazy dark gold with a slight foamy off-white head. Aroma is a strange earthiness mixed with citrus. Med body. Itís earthy, and citrus, but it has a rather strong dose of phenolics. I donít think this is infection - not a nasty sour thing - but rather unusual. Maybe itís the rye reacting with the yeast.
