Batch #10, 6.5% ABV
Compared to the batch #9, its smoother, more lemony, more winey, lighter and more floral, even cleaner. Better than the #9

Batch #9, 6.5% ABV
Cloudy blond color. Dry beer, but smooth, with moderate Brett character, funk, some citrus peel, a bit too astringent, maybe dirty.

Oakes (16466) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 13, 2014
A little footy/yeasty, has a nice thick head though. Sweet, a bit fruity but with sticky pale malts. Maybe a touch of spice. The brett does not seem to have kicked in yet.

mcberko (16012) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 13, 2014
500mL bottle, sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours a cloudy pale orangey yellow with a medium white head. Aroma brings out Belgian yeast, very light funk, and citrus. Flavour is quite complex, bringing out traditional farmhouse yeast notes, some brett funk, citrus zest, and even a bit of salt. Extremely refreshing, yeasty and well-balanced. A brett saison that can compete with the best of them. Wonderful.

Ferris (13810) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle - Lemon grass, lime and some sweet yeast. Cloudy yellow and a rich head. Sour, oaky, lemon, coriander effervescent and dry. Another nice beer from what is becoming my favourite Canadian brewery.

Lubiere (13271) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2014
A hazed blonde saison with a thin lacing white head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with pineapple, Brett, lemon, very nice. In mouth, a smooth sour puckering malt with light acetic notes, Brett, very nice and fruity yet complex. On tap at brewery.

Sammy (11641) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2015 Recent bottle from the retail store. Somewhat of a foamer with a deep yellow body and lots of bubbles. Aggressive carbonation, above average mouthfeel. Somewhat funk and in the style. Good farmhouse, good drinkability. Not getting much of the barreling impact, but its nice.batch 8 is a paradigm shift. Funk base with lemony tart character. I up the rating but it should be a new rating.

@RBB Cloudy gold. Pleasant bright farmhouse aroma and flavor. Musty, light funk and brett, fruity. Pretty cool. The bright cherry version was even better.

2013-03-28. Hazy bright pastel yellow, nice large white head. 3++ Lovely aroma, floral lightly yeasty character, mild grassy quality to the hops. 7++ Flavour is similar, modest grassy hop bitterness throughout, modest yeasty character, mild fruity character, muted vinous quality, whispers of oak grow as it warms but barrel character is very restrained overall, to its benefit. Gains a slight acidity in the finish as it warms up. 7++ Average bodied palate is fairly carbonated. Pretty nice stuff and exceptionally drinkable. I think we had a bottle of this the next day too (no label on the bottle!) and it was similarly very drinkable. Bottle shared by GregClow.

DuffMan (9912) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 22, 2013
Bottle, shared at RBAG 2013, and obtained from Sammy in a recent trade. Thanks man! Bright yellow body, hazy, topped by a huge frothy white head that laced well. Funky and pleasantly yeasty with rustic character and a crisp mouthfeel, lightly spicy dry finish. Really great saison here, but I didnt pick up on any real barrel traits to be honest. Didnt care though-- great saison.
