3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle, picked up at the brewery last week. Pours hazy deep gold with tons of off-white head; good retention, decent lacing. Coriander; toasty wheat; pepper, nice fruit/peppery notes reminiscent of a saison. Refreshing; lightly tart. I suppose it’s a bit non-traditional (or at least, that’s what I’ve been told), but I’m not big on tradition anyway, and this is very tasty.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle big thanks to Bruce. It pours cloudy golden with a decent white head. The nose is soft, sweet, preserved lemon, minerals, wheat, lemon cheesecake and light cracker. The taste is crisp, doughy, minerals, light tartness, doughy, faint saltiness, orange rind, grassy with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not as much pucker as I had hoped. Smooth and rather drinkable, but not up there with Westbrook and such like.

Bottle from CANBIF 2014, shared at the 2014 end of year Ottawa tasting. Pale straw pour with an off white head. Epson salt, lemon rind, wheat and turnip. The nose just didn’t follow through into the palate though where it turned into flat lemonade (un-sweetened) with high carbonation and mild body and a slightly dry finish.

I really liked this one. Pours clear gold with lots of head. NOse is lemon pledge, some cereal. Flavours of lemon, wheat, some epsom salt and floral notes. Taste light sweet, light tang. Mouth is pretty light with some acidity. Really drinkable, and this is not typically a style that works for me.
