CapFlu (4493) - Victoria, British Columbia, - MAR 1, 2014
Lasting creamy white head with a clouded, highly-carbonated deep amber body. Peppery nose, lemon rind, tonic. Slight sweet front with a coriander and yeasty body, mild citrus and wheat. Very lively and enjoyable. Would be a great summer backyard beer. Purchased at Cascadia Liquors (Quadra) for $5.99.

650ml bottle. Thin but generally tasty with some funky yeast character and mild sprinkling of spice. Dry and bready. Very lightly tart.

exeter (283) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 21, 2014
Pours a good sized head that moves on to micro-head that stays to the bottom of the glass, no lacing. It’s look is straw and cloudy. It’s taste is sour and yeasty with pepper notes. Very refreshing and a well done Saison from outside Belgium. The 7% is a little high for Belgian farmworkers or N.A. grass cutters. Great beer, Victoria BC rocks again

Lagerboy (1211) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 19, 2014
Bomber. Clear bright yellow, fine white lasting foam. Aroma is yeasty spicy citrusy fruity. Taste is green fruit, apple, citrus, yeasty, some faint tartness but mostly way too sweet which made it hard to finish. Average carbonation, lighter bodied, low hopped. Yeasty and buttery near the end. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

Smells of hay, yeasty, sour fruit, funky, really aromatic. Pours straw colour with white head, looks of high carbonation. Tastes sour, apple, pear, citrus, melon, coriander. Body is medium and carbonation is lively with a slightly dry finish. Very tasty beer, refreshing and interesting. I feel this ver is well executed and a nice summer treat.

reebtogi (4144) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 15, 2014
650ml bottle pours a hazy pale golden color with a finger of white head that leaves very little lacing behind. Aroma is lemon with some grains and yeasty notes. Taste is a grainy malt sweetness with a light lemon sourness and a lemon zesty bitterness. Light to medium body with adequate carbonation. A decent saison, but only slightly recommended.

Ferris (3800) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 12, 2014
Bottle - Funky, cereal, hay and citrus, finishing a bit spicy. Pale gold with a very active white rich head. Sweet, cereal, hay and a bit of light spice. Long finish. Not enough oomph. Some tartness or bitterness would have been nice.

mathieuc (1227) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle thanks to Tmappin, thanks a bunch! Pours a still looking yellow with almost no head and zero lacing. Nose is of pilsener malt, weird fruits, alcohol. Taste is kinda sweet with yellow fruits flavors. Carbonation is quite high, body medium. Some sweet cereals in the finish. Not cloying but really not refreshing at all. Not a homerun at all here, glad I had the chance to try it.

vadie (664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2014
Jaune brumeux avec une grande mousse blanche. L’arôme du levure, pain, seigle, et céréales, peut-être même un peu de fruit. Le goût est un peu sucré et comme du pain fraîche (un peu multigrains) avec peut-être un peu de fruits.

650 ml bottle. Pours a yellow/gold with light head. Aromas of lemons, cornbread and light yeast. Flavors of dough, light coriander, light citrus,and toasted malts. Nice. Almost chewy.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2014
Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Cloudy greenish blond color with compact head. Bready aroma, gentle hops. Well carbonated, off-dry mouthfeel; delicate bready flavor with very moderate acidity and low bitterness
Nicely brewed.
