MartinT (9729) - 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 (6889) - 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.

Johnsense (1555) - - MAR 14, 2015
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.

500 ml bottle from the brewery, shared. Cloudy golden with a frail white head. Nice funk, citrus, peppery and spicy, tropical fruits, really nice. Medium body, fairly lively carbonation, mostly dry with moderate bitterness. Great stuff.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 13, 2015
Bottle, batch 4. Ive enjoyed several batches at different times and the ratings are consistently high. Probably one of my favourites from them.
Pours cloudy yellow with a huge white frothy head. Huge enticing aroma of peach, tangerine and biscuit. Robust flavour with oaky chardonnay notes. Quite excellent.

jinroh (1437) - ESTONIA - DEC 30, 2014
Light, hazy golden, rather white. Thin foam layer. Aroma is light, farm ale. Yeasty and with some small citrus. Taste is bitterish saison, soft at the same time. Nice and complex.

What a beer. Definitely cannot speak to the ins and outs of the taste nuances as well as others but they all come together wonderfully and this is the best Bellwoods beer I have had yet - and that is saying a lot!
