Picked up a bottle at the brewery. Pours a huge foamy bubbly white head that dissipates somewhat quickly, has a pale yellow golden appearance. Some decent patchy lacing. Aromas of floral and grassy hops, a little perfumy. Flavours are citrusy and grassy, some floral notes. Quite fruity as well. Some notes of yeast and herbs. Fizzy and drying mouthfeel. Medium/full body. Great retention. Fairly excessive carbonation. Very refreshing and easy going down. Pretty good.

500mL bottle, sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours a cloudy opaque peachy yellow with a small white head. Nose brings out farmhouse yeast, light stone fruits, and some hay. Flavour is along the same lines, with farmhouse yeast, light hay, some pith and cereal notes. Nice farmhouse character, with a pithy and dry finish.

Hazy to cloudy pour with a thick white head. The aroma is quite fruity and floral. Sort of a chamomile and soft funky yeast. Very subtle tartness, fruity and zesty with a little bit of flinty yeast aroma. A bit of grassiness. The flavour is fantastic. Bright and floral with a touch of lemon peel and a bit of soft bitterness. Tart and zesty. Subtle malt base with a creaminess that is fairly unusual. Pretty interesting brew.

2017-10-28. Hazy pastel yellow body, small head. 3+ Aroma is mild and subtle but pleasant. Muted floral and mild fruit character that defies my precise description. Flavour is subtle, quite mild. Interesting melange of whispered musty funk, very light fruit and floral hints. Smooth average to light bodied palate, soft carbonation.7/3-4/7/3/15+ Bottle from Bellwoods shared by mds, Toronto.

500ml bottle @ the office. Thanks dabeerbuddha. Pours a cloudy golden orange colour with a small white head. Nose is citrus orange, lemon, and some hay. Flavour is a carbonated semi cirtus, fruity, with a wheat character and some hints of sour. It seems somewhat simple, but ok.

Bottle - Hay and some lemon and lime notes. Cloudy with a small white. Very light with some perfumy wheat notes and a light finish.

Oakes (19045) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 2, 2017
Hazy pale. Not much head. The aroma is dusty, with dried flowers. On the palate, it actually comes across thin. Not much bitterness, just a little bit of that dried floral stuff. Not catching a lot of complexity, which disappoints me.

(Bottle) clear, fluorescenct yellow colour with a tall white head; aroma of tropical fruit, hint of lilies; smooth palate; balanced flavour with a long, light bitter finish

Tasting at Slack
Hazy blond color. The aroma is mildly funky, a bit perfumy, possibly some butter. Very dry, some funk, but not very interesting besides that, and with some pithy bitterness in the final.
