Thanks to Nick for this one! Une bire ple produisant une gnreuse mousse lors du service qui ne tient malheureusement quun instant. Un nez qui prsente une levure furieusement active, chevaline, sauvage et fruite. Je sens de la nectarine et un quelque chose qui me rappelle le sirop de cerise. Trs trs frache et rafrachissante, la bire offre une attaque explosive de houblon citronn suivie dun funk trs fermier. Le liquide est toutefois tristement mince et les saveurs sont bien quexplosives, de trs courte dure. Un arrire-got lgrement citronn et mme peut-tre menthol, cette bire frache et lgre se boit comme un charme!

** Batch #9 (Novembre 2015) ** Une coiffe de mousse timide se pose doucement sur une bire blonde paille lgrement voile. Des notes poussireuses soutiennent des armes de raisins blancs et de crales craquantes. Laspect vineux se prcise en bouche, mais son importance est diminue par des saveurs de pommes sucres et de chne. Une dlicate acidit vhicule bien les saveurs dominantes de la bire. Pas aussi explosive quanticipe, mais nempche que sa buvabilit est non-ngligeable.

Refreshing to be sure, Farmageddon clearly gleans a multitude of flavour from the cider and wine barrels it was ensconced in for some time. The beerd version of a cidery white wine funked by Bretto, a firm effervescence and dry feel and finish drives home the agrestic notes in this blonde Saison.

Opener on Jan 17th 2016 from a 500ml bottle. The brett is apparent upfront as this ale starts with a strong yeasty aroma, some barnish scents with wet hoppy notes. The brilliant sunshinr colour and thin white head brighten this beer. Mellow bitter taste at first but well balanced. Lemon zesty flavours and some light barely apparent mint notes makes this beer slightly astringent. Drink this beer with spicy meat and rich cheeses.

Franckg (1386) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 15, 2015
Robe jauntre voile, col de mousse timide, lger dpt au fond du verre. Armes de citron, orange, bretts, vin blanc fruit et miel. Acidule point. En bouche, citron, bretts, lime, orange mre. Une finale qui laisse ressortir des effluves de bois, raisin et miel. Une sensation plus amer sur le palais ainsi quun ct plus acidul. Texture lgre, effervescence un peu faible.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2016 Rating 500: Smells vingary and funky. Bottle almost exploded, lost probably a quarter of it to the wall/ceiling/floor, hazy gold with little head. Lots of woodiness, tastes somewhat similar to white wine but more sour, fairly light bodied and lots of carbonation, the light body leaves a little bit of heat from the alcohol. Lots of bizarre yeasty flavours from the brett, very funky beer, nice one Bellwoods! Re-rate: Ive drank this beer so much and love it more every time so giving it a few more points.

MartinT (9590) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 12, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2016 My Bottom Line:
Hay-laced brettanomyces is met by caprine angles and citrusy hops, as white wine connotations stick the landing.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the misty golden.
-The honeyed residual sugars in the tap version surprised me.
-The complexity of this one is highly enjoyable, yet remains low profile if you are not paying attention.
-The higher carbonation in the bottle works wonderfully, increasing the perception of dryness.

Bottles, and on tap at Siboire, Sherbrooke.

Bottle from Ferris, thanks bud! This is a batch 5 bottle that is almost a year old. Appearance is a crisp yellow with light white head. Aroma is jam packed with citrus, white grapes, and musty funk. Taste is light funk, pepper, yeasty esters,and white wine. Finshes bone dry, with a light peppery aftertaste. This is delicious, very refreshing stuff!

PhillyCraft (6451) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Bottle shared by Barry, poured cloudy gold with average head/lace. Notes of candy dryer sheet, florals, and brett earth. Spicy and a bit and Belgiany but overall a decent saison from Canada eh.

Gold pour with a good sized head. Loads of lace. Strong tropical fruit and brett aroma. Quite funky, brett, tropical fruit, spicy, barrel aging is there but subtle, which works for a brew like this. Slightly herbal. Medium bodied. Cant wait till its brewed again.
