COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Purposely brewed on a sunny day with the weekend in mind. Crafted in the Belgian farmhouse tradition using Belgian Pilsener malt, special aromatic malt, wheat malt and a touch of clear Belgian candy syrup, balanced with German Hallertau hops. Our Summer Daze is dry to the finish with great hop character throughout and a slight peppery nose. Kick back, relax and enjoy!

Lagerboy (1169) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2014
Bomber. Unclear golden yellow, fine white foam settles quickly. Citrusy fruity yeasty aroma and taste, candy sugar and spice, some noble influence. Average carbonation, lighter bodied, lightly hopped. Gets yeastier and sours a bit, kinda dazed and confused. LBW (Lagerboys Be wary)

Slight cloudy yellow pour soap bubbles. Aroma of tart yeast some dusty skunk german hops. Tastes super yeasty like a belgian ale. Briny. Some vineous notes. Alcohol burns on the aftertaste. Slight driness to finish, but mostly wet. I donít appreciate the german hops here. If I wanted their flavor I would seek out a pale lager. Why is there candi sugar in this?! Definitely an experiment run amok. This is a great intro saison for fans of pale lager/tripels.

stantheman (612) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2013
Bomber from Boundary Crossing Liquor Store in East Vancouver.

A pale beer with generous white head. Impression of sweet banana on the nose. Taste? I put the bottle in the freezer for a few minutes to put more chill on it, but initial impression is that itís a pissy, insipid beer like Budweiser. We shall see...

Chilled it to the brink of ice crystal formation, then poured out the rest of the bottle and let it sit about 5 minutes. Well, turns out this ainít no Budweiser clone. A nice bit of light but complex fruit goiní on here. A great summer thirst quencher!

WheatKing (1234) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 4, 2013
Bomber. Pours gold, not much head. Moderate herb and spice in nose, not much fruitiness compared to many in the style. Some peppers in flavour, evident wheat but doesnít go overboard so retains its saison characteristics, finish is fairly dry. Simple but good.The type of beer that tastes a lot better with grapes and cheese... dill havarti in our case.

Gerbeer (1662) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 15, 2013
650 ml bottle. Pours a clear gold with almost no head. Aromas of yeast and resin with perhaps some notes of ginger and coriander. Not sure what is trying to be achieved - flavours of banana, resin, and wheat.
