Oakes (14671) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 7, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2008 Beige, slightly hazy. Slightly funky, with some pedio. Fairly full body, spicy, with a nice firm alcohol finish with herbal hops. This cuts through just a hint of sweetness at the fore, which comes in a little plasticy. Some spritziness moves the body forward. Decent little saison.

Bottle from Half Time. Pours medium gold with tiny bubbles and a four finger frothy white head. Mildly funky aroma. Medium body with sparkling carbonation. Flavor is funky and yeasty. Maybe a tad musty. Finishes that way. Farmhouse it is. Good stuff.

(750ml bottle, thanks Shadrach) The bottle oozed white foam as soon as the cork popped, and it gradually was replaced in the glass by a hazy lemon yellow body. Aroma is moderately sweet, orange, some floral, light lemon/grass. Taste is medium sweet, orange, spicy, some clove, pepper, light dusky. Fairly dry finish. Creamy medium body.

The smell is a bit barnyard, with lots of malt behind it. The taste, from a medium plus mouthfeel,is hoppy and mildly spicey, and is a bit astringent in the finish.Drinkable though not best of style.Orange with off-white head.
