blankboy (7928) - Toronto, Ontario, - FEB 2, 2018
[Bottle (500ml)] Pours a clear pale gold with a huge fluffy semi-lasting white head. Aroma (7+) is grainy, floral, herbal, yeasty and lightly hoppy along with hints of fruit and pepper. Flavour (7+) of fruit, yeast, grain, herbs and light hops. Medium bodied. Really good.

Franckg (1951) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 18, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2018 Bouteille. Robe jaune pâle et plutôt trouble avec un épais col de mousse blanc et rocailleux. Arômes de levures épicées, herbes sauvages, jus de banane, orange, zeste de citron. En bouche, levures mi-epicées mi-sucrées, orange, citron et houblons herbacés aux saveurs de chlorophylle pouvant rappeler le trèfle et le lierre. Texture très sèche et corps mince.

Bottled. Almost clear body, big white head. The aroma has earth. The taste is earthy and refreshing.

robinvboyer (4836) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 28, 2018
Bottle at the raven and republic in North Bay Ontario. Hazy yellow pour, with a large white head. Aroma is very floral, light apple, white grape, light lemon zest, and pear. Light mouth feel, lively carb. Low bitterness, slightly tart, more white grape and fruity notes.

neongolden (2075) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 19, 2018
(500ml bottle shared, thanks Phyllomedusa!) Pours hazy dark gold with a big bubbly white head and lace. Notes of balanced fruitiness, especially orange peel, light grapefruit, soft pale pit fruit notes, grass, perfumed florals, light lemon tartness, cereals, touch yeasty, with a dry finish of citrus pith, hay, grains and very light spice. Overally feel is just a hint of tartness and balancing sweetness over a fundamentally dry core. Mouthfeel is moderate, carbonation efferevescent. A solid saison, the 'wild' nature of it is certainly not apparent but it's well crafted and balanced.

ciocanelu (3197) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JAN 18, 2018
Extremely hazy peach juice color with off-white head. Aroma has tart fruit notes, some fermented pickles, dank hops, floral notes. Taste is yeasty, floral with some tart fruit like fermented overripe pineapple. Full bodied with medium carbonation. Nice flavor but quite yeasty, not as easy drinking as I would like.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2017 500ml bottle. Clear golden yellow, effervescent bubbles and a foamy white head. Flavors are bready cereals, honey, cheese, peach and lemon with floral and herbal notes. Medium body, moderate to good carbonation, slick texture.

AleRider78 (1521) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2017
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.
