JoeMcPhee (8746) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2014
Pale straw-yellow pour. The aroma is soft and herbal. Minerally Brett aroma with a spicy/noble hoppiness. The flavour is actually ptetty watery. Lightly hopped and a little bit perfumey but quite a let down.

presario (4748) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 30, 2014
Had to double check the ABV. Didn’t notice in the first couple sips. Cloudy dark yellow. Thin soft foam. Saison scent. Spicy strong flavour. Good malt. Only knock might be that more malt sweetness would better balance the herbal bitterness but that would also raise the ABV.

PotjeBier (1779) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 23, 2014
33 cl bottle bought in Lille (covered markets). Pale blonde color, hazy. White head with good retention. Aroma’s: first impression is of a French lager (which is not a compliment), then there’s grain/malt, some fruit & vegetables, light spices. Retronasal there’s more of a hop character, herbal, light bitter and still fruity. Flavor is slightly bitter, herbal. Light bodied, rather thin. Finish is somewhat dry and rather (earthy) bitter. Not great.
