jercraigs (8485) - 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.

manuchampions (1243) - 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. What’s left pours a hazy medium gold, high carbonation (duh) with an ample cream head. Aroma is all over the room but in the glass it’s 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 won’t 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 weren’t for the explosion and the metal I think I would rate this a fair bit higher.

rejtable (1749) - 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 (12455) - 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. It’s earthy, and citrus, but it has a rather strong dose of phenolics. I don’t think this is infection - not a nasty sour thing - but rather unusual. Maybe it’s the rye reacting with the yeast.

Eructoblaster (3363) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 23, 2013
Bottle - 750ml. Beautiful cloudy golden body with a thin white foamy head. Fresh, well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with yeasty and flowery hints. its sharp hoppy taste carries grainy, yeasty, and coriander notes. Ends with a sharp bitter/sour finish. Well done.

myrda (91) - - MAY 26, 2014
Odeur de citron frais, zeste et blé. Très pâle, mousse persistante. Mince en bouche, pas d’arrière goût agressif. Très rafraichissant, bien équilibrés et arômes subtiles mais complexe.
