Marheb (2080) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 29, 2014
Une saison bien florale avec bon mordant acétique qui voit ses céréales littéralement craquer sous la dent. Le vieillissement en barriques est pas trop musclé mais laisse quand même ses traces tanniques qui contribuent à la sécheresse.

I love the taste, lemon-lime with funk, nice mouth viscous mouth feel, dry finish with some tannins and wood. The nose is very lacto heavy to me, thus the slightly lower score there. Enjoy it. I’d drink a second.

Bottle. Pours grapefruit white head. Nose and taste of sour grain, lactose, sour wheat, tropical fruit and wild saison yeast. Medium body.

sampled at bottle share. honestly didnt think much of this one, in the end pretty forgettable.

Boutip (4738) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle: Poured a cloudy orangey color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of sour and tart notes with light funky notes. Taste is also dominated by some sour and tart notes with some funky yeasty notes in the background with limited acidity level. Body is full with limited filtration and medium carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not as complex as I was anticipating and saison base beer is hard to decipher through all this aging but very good rink nonetheless.

hopscotch (9170) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle... Hazy peach pour with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The nose offers faint yeasty and woody notes. Medium to full-bodied with lively carbonation. Lightly tart, but not a lot of fruity flavor or complexity here. Finishes tangy and tongue-numbing. Vastly overrated. As disappointing as New Glarus Thumbprint Series Oud Bruin – which is also vastly overrated. Bottle courtesy of Rosebud butternuts!

TXBadger (1398) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Reviewed from notes: pours a cloudy/hazy straw yellow with white head. Funk, oak, vanilla, and some tartness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes tart and dry.
