Bottle from the Craft Beer Advent Calendarbulldogops (2885) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 15, 2016
Gushing bottle. Still, the blond color is clean, with medium sized head. Mild aroma, some vegetables. Overly carbonated; some apricot flavor, some yeast, dry, and some vegetables in the final, slighly sour too.
Not very pleasant, I suspect there is an infection.

Rating #1836 - 2015.07.20 - Bottle from CBI - Pours a hazy straw colour with a frothy white head, not much lacing. Aroma is of farmhouse yeast. Clean mouthfeel, medium carbonation, mild alcohol warmth. Taste is a crisp sweetness, tempered with herbal notes, mild sourness from the yeast.

Bottle. Spicey orange aroma. Cloudy yellow colour with small white head. Orange flavour with notes of pepper and cloves. Medium body and a bitter finish. Sammy (13144) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2016
On the mark, if unexceptiponal saison. Something different for this brewery. Big yeast character, and also spice. Bottle at C’est What. BeerAndPonies (175) - Medicine Hat, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 13, 2016
Single 341 ml bottle, served in a weissbier vase. This is the final review of beers taken from 2015 Christmas variety cases. The bottle literally gushed froth upon opening, creating some spillage. On me. Fairly large streams of active carbonation could be seen in both bottle and glass, while the brew itself is an orangey-straw yellow, hazy, and with a fairly long-lived meringue head and gobs of soapy lace. Some dark specks of particulate are visible after the bottle is poured. The very strong and overripe aromas of tropical tree fruits (mostly pineapple over banana), perfumey candy, vanilla, and plasticky (bandaids?) bubblegum are unavoidable, especially when it’s all over your pants. The flavor mirrors the aroma, is moderately sour and quite dry upon the sip, but lingers on the palate a few moments. I’m rather confused - I don’t know what to observe. Anyway, the style is definitely not my scene, and I’ll defer judgement to those who have more saison experience.

Bottle, craft beer advent calendar 2015. Hazy medium golden, lively white head that retains well. Big pineapple aroma, peachy nuances, doughy yeast. A touch sweet, but quite nice. bdleedahl (712) - , Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 10, 2015
2015 beer advent. Gushed when i cracked it. Quite citrusy and fruity. But very crisp, without any overwhelming flavours. Cleanly brewed.

Hazy golden in colour, foamy off-white head. Practically exploded upon opening. Aroma of orange peel, mango, coriander. Taste of oranges, mango, faint spices. Very light body. Watery texture. Intense carbonation. Abrupt finish, does not linger. Not bad. Reimer96 (1778) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 8, 2015
Gushed upon opening and is tart and highly carbonated... Has a nice citrus Aroma with saison yeast bit after that this is a landmine! simonblaine (593) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 8, 2015
