Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Cloudy blond color with compact head. Mild yeasty and spicy aroma. Dry mouthfeel; light bread flavor, light stale bread impression too, plastic touch, timid yeast spiciness, ordinary bitterness. Can’t identify it as Farmhouse, just a dry Wheat.
Mostly boring.

yngwie (14935) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle, 75cl. It pours a dense, finger-thick white head over an almost clear, pale golden body. The aroma has a little yeasty and pilsnerish touch, with piney and resiny hops in the back. Some peppery hints. It’s medium bodied and quite dry, with a bit heavy carbonation level. Lemony, piney hops, a nice bitterness, pale malts and a faint fruity sweetness in the flavor. Lasting dry and bitter finish. Not my favorite farmhouse ale, but it’s quite decent. 141025

Oakes (13293) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 3, 2014
Gave a cloudy pour, so cloudy tan with a big head, yeasty, peppery, floral nose is classic saison. Sweet malty, pale malt, character with peppery yeast, dusty character. Good balance...sound example.

Theydon_Bois (12172) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2013
Tap at the Commons brewery, PDX, 26/05/13. Lightly hazed pale blonde with a thin white head that dissipates to the edge. Nose carries yeast esters, toffee, spice, dark fruits. Taste comprises pear drops, touch of spice, light banana tones, sugars, yeast. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sweetish in the finish. This was drinkable stuff but not really what I look for in a saison, it came over more as a Belgian ale.
