2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This saison poured a clear, dark yellow colour with a minimal, soapy white head. Scents include yellow mustard, spice, very faint vinegar and light malts. First swig was almost peppery with other flavours of yeast and cinnamon. Finish was lightly bitter with light cinnemon and spice lingering.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
For me, this is what a saison should be. Tasty, refreshing, interesting and subtle. Nothing hits you in the face, everything just shows up delicately and says: "Hey, relax, we’re good!". I love it!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a clear golden straw with a thick, resilient white head. Aroma is lemon, pepper, fresh cereal. Flavor is fruits (apple, peach, pear), bubble gum and cereals. Finish is lemon, pepper, some mint. Lingering subtle fruit aromas. Light to medium body, average carbonation. Refreshing as heck.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Aug. 16, 2014. Bottle from LCBO. Golden yellow, slightly cloudy. BIg white head that lingered. Aromas of hops, straw and lemon. Seems too hoppy for a saison; hops are very prominent. Nice lacing. Had this on tap before and it was much better. Quite disappointing in the bottle.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
750 mL Bottle. Murky straw-yellow body with a tenacious frothy head leaving ribs on the glass. Aroma of pears and other pale fruits, floral notes and hints of fresh-cut grass and pine. Pungent in a way that piques my curiosity. Flavor of wheat malt with a note of cantaloupe, an astringent lemon rind aftertaste, and then a mild sweet cream cheese twinned with hops finish. A very specialized kind of mouth-puckering taste. Have an open mind ;)

Hazy yellow with a lasting, lacy, generous white head. Spicy and quite hoppy, with bright mango hop character adding to appealing yeast character.

Pour is hazy golden with a fluffy white head. Lots of citrus notes and even some tropical fruits in the nose. Belgian yeasts and some bread notes. Taste is dry with some good spiciness. Lots of citrussy and some passion fruit flavors. Pepper and clove notes too. Low to medium bitterness in the end. Medium carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle pours a hazy light orange color with a huge white head that has decent retention and leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is lemon rind with some caramel and flowery notes. Taste is a light lemon sourness with a moderate grapefruit hop bitterness and a light caramel malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with nice carbonation leaving a good mouth feel. One of the better saisons that I have tried.
