On tap. Hazy gold, delicate white head. Earthy, yeasty, coconut aroma. Hint of the berries. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Warms nicely. Balances with a slightly bitter finish. Didn’t get much of the fruit but this was a good saison.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2013-02-01 - on draught at Bar Hop. Heh - I think we had a pre-release sample of this up at Indie the month before; I was good then - I tried it, but didn’t take notes: I’m not THAT kind of rater. Ahem. This was at BH. Hazy gold with a decent creamy/frothy off-white head. Weird aroma, not great - grain, weeds, paper; touch of generic somewhat tart fruit - no coconut for me. Taste of raspberry, what was probably coconut milk - whatever, it was odd but not unpleasant - otherwise pretty standard somewhat sweet saison. Average everything, a hint of acidity, but sadly I got paper again in the quick finish; I will add two phantom points to the rating for how much better the pre-release sample was up at Indie the month before.

2012-01-31. Lightly hazy golden orange with pink tinges around the edges. Small white head. 3+ Flavour is pleasant, refreshing raspberry, light toasty malt undertones, whispers of coconut if you look for it. 7+ Aroma is fruity, raspberry, light yeasty touches. 7+ Smooth average plus bodied palate. Fruitier and possibly a bit more bitter than previous. Enjoyable. 7/3/7/3/15 On tap at Bar Hop, Toronto
2012-01-02. Hazy orange body with a small off white head. 3++ Very interesting aroma, fruity, sort of a mild tangy funky quality to it. 7++ Flavour is similar, pleasantly fruity with a hard to pinpoint twist - almost persimmon like up front - more obviously raspberry and coconut after its pointed out to me what it is, which is intriguing. Interesting raspberry and raspberry seeds in the finish. 7++ Perplexing up front, then very quaffable and quite refreshing. 7/4/7/3/16++ On tap at brewpub

On tap at Volo
Aromagrape , mild fruity hints , tea…tad muted.6+
Appearance hazed amber with medium lighter white top.
Flavor and Palate :Light bodied. Frontal raspberry , fairly true, coconut was hidden. Perhaps this was the source of silky texture (body). This would be solid choice for head wave days.

weird, cool and refreshing all at once. Coconut is mild, berry is light, but it all works.
Cool that these guys are trying new things.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy copper-gold with an average size semi-lasting frothy white head. Nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of raspberries, light hops, yeast, light herbs and just a hint of coconut. Flavour of raspberries first followed by yeast, light hops, light herbs and again, just a hint of coconut. Light bitter finish. Medium bodied. An interesting and tasty beer.
