hangunder (305) - Ontario, - APR 29, 2013
Balanced brett, belgian yeast and alcohol on the nose. Very hazy with chunks of yeast floating around in the bottle, thick head that stays around for a while. Flavor starts off tart, belgian yeast becomes apparent in the middle and bread flavors come through in the finish. Alcohol comes through a bit too as this warms. Remains quite refreshing. Heavily carbonated and medium bodied.

kbudd19 (1008) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 11, 2016
Bottle @ 5.4%. Thanks to Pat for this. Appearance is cloudy yellow with frothy white head. Aroma is grass, lemon, and clove. Taste is grass, and lemon, with a hint of pepper and a dry crisp finish. Very Classic indeed, this is really on point with the style.

cattaneopapa (342) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2016
Bottle from the brewery. 5.4% alc./vol.Pours a hazy straw colour with two fingers of white head. Aromas of oranges, bananas, and a whiff of Belgian yeast. Citrusy taste with notes of Belgian yeast and peppery spiciness on the finish. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Excellent saison.

SlovakSniper (5264) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 18, 2016
Version à 5.4%. Un liquide voilé sans grande mousse. Un nez de saison qui communique ses parfums épicés et acidulés à grande vitesse. Foin en paquet dans mes narines. Une bouche complètement sur le style, campagnard par ses levures mais aussi par le choix de ses céréales. Bonne finale poivrée. Houblons sur mesure pour cette adaptation canadienne. Efficace, pétillante, sèche, musquée, professionnellement exécutée.

portwood (216) - Markham, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 24, 2016
Smell: white bread, banana, clove, white pepper. Palate: frothy carbonation, full bodied, light sour note. Finish: phenolic dryness, spicy, lemongrass. Another well made Bellwoods beer! A drinkable saison/farmhouse (flavorful without obnoxious sour notes). (bottled at 5.4% ABV, June 2016)

jamestulloch (3584) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 25, 2016
Keg at the brewery. Hazy golden body with a thin white head. Faint lacing. Aroma of dried apricot, white pepper and white bread. Flavour of lemon zest, underripe peach and sparkling water. Thin to medium body with a spritzy mouthfeel. Lively fizz. Earthy and crisp.

crossovert (11601) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2016
Draft. Its a pretty basic imperial style saison, some phenolic notes, bit of a sweet malt note.

Hidden_Pooch (518) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - APR 24, 2016
Pours a hazy gold colour. Aroma is of lemongrass and spices. Tastes of lemongrass, spice, and cereal. Has a medium body with a light tartness that makes it very drinkable. Found it very mild tasting, but great flavour.

500ml bottle. Hazy golden-orange in colour with a large and long lasting white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is very bretty, lots of yeast, fruit, lemons, spice. The flavour is of brett, apples, some grains, spice, yeasty. Lightly bitter mouthfeel, medium body, high carbonation. Finishes long, yeasty, some spice. Another excellent beer from Bellwoods. The brett in this is fantastic.
