3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Surprise! It’s a bit of a gusher. Dirty dark yellow with good white foamy head. Dusty malt and light Brett scent. Soft foamy palate. Bit of peppery kick at the end with a pinch of fruit. A bit heavy handed without the magic I expect from best of style. A bit mellony with pepper notes.

Bottle, bought from Bierkompass in March 2014.
Hazy golden with a large white head. Aroma of floral hops, grass, brett, some light pepper and citrus. Similar taste. A bit sweet and with a bitter finish. A descent one.

Citric, pine apple, crisp, yellow sugar, hay. Really nice, bit eccentric. Very balanced between bitterness, sweet and sours. Oozes quality. Great drink, especially in a small sipping quantity. (2

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured into a teku showing an extremely light straw yellow with a a finger and a half of clean white foam.
The nose shows a lot of brett and funky barnyard aromas. Hints of lemon juice and pineapple also appear.
The palate is medium bodied and highly carbonated. Flavors of brett but very little tartness. The barnyard flavors permeate the entire beer. Very subtle flavors of pineapple begin to appear until a light to moderate bitterness interrupts. This bitterness and the barnyard flavors seem to prevent realizing any of the beer’s fruit flavors.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft. Hazy pale gold in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of coriander, cream of wheat breakfast cereal and white pepper. More wheat and lemony coriander notes in the mouth, backed by a more vague spicy Belgian yeast note and a bit of bubblegum. Heavy wit beer like body, but with enough sharp spice notes to balance things out. Still not as dry as I typically like my saisons, but still quite good overall.

Popped out of the bottle with a burst of foaming head. Pours a white, very frothy head atop a cloudy yellow gold body. Nose is yeasty and peppery. Very lemony, peppery yeast. Very refreshing. Purchased at Metro Liquors University Heights for ~$13.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Opaque yellow with a pillowy white head. Enticing aromas of spicy yeast esters. Lively carbonation; effervescent; light, bright and clean. Zinger notes of lemon, flowers, spices, pepper and herbs. Just the right amount of yeast funkiness to give it depth. Aftertaste is dry and moderately bitter. Tremendously delicious and refreshing saison.
