Bottle sample @ Vini Birre Ribelli 16 shared with 77ship and Tderoeck. Dore, col blanc. Arme est plus abouti que la version fleurs sauvages dguste le mme jour. Retrouve plus le bouquet rustique hennuyer adoub dun lger houblon noble qui offre de belles note de fleuri. Malt pils et froment? Retrouve aussi de belles pointes dagrumes et fines effluves tropicales. Palais est malt avec un effet grains ajoutant une petite scheresse en fin de bouche. retrouve un fruit agrumes et herbac plaisant et un lger effet rappelant le sureau. Pointe dpice perce et accompagn dun ct bourgeon frais fleuri des houblons. Je suppose que le nom na rien de gographiquement proche avec Pinnacle le cidre de glace.

Thank you for sharing Sebletitje & tderoeck! 750 ml. bottle sampled @ Vini Birre Ribelli 2016. Hazy citrus golden, little white head. Very promising nose, mellow lemon, zesty, fruity citrus fruits & lemon. Taste fall bland, low fish guts yeast, mineral zest, low lemon, bit watery, empty, BE esters,... Body is thin, yeast & BE esters. Expected more, Dunham has made some awesome beers but this one just flat & bit empty for me.

rubyroo (145) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 23, 2016
Pours a hazy hay yellow with a massive head. Even after drinking some it kept trying to get out of the glass! Tons of activity with very fine bubbles. Some of the thickest and most gorgeous lacing I have ever seen. Aroma is guava, mango, orange zest, melon and lemon. Taste is green hops, orange zest, hay, white pepper, barnyard, mango, pine and pineapple. Palate is medium-thin with a long dry & bitter finish. Overall- Fantastic! Probably the best Saison I have tried so far. Id say its a farmhouse IPA due to the level of hops.

ajnepple (5668) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2016
750 ml bottle from Mr. Bs Wine & Spirits on sale for $5.99 (probably not too fresh). Hazy yellowish orange appearance with a huge, fluffy white head that lingers. Aroma of mild citrus fruit, floral/zesty hops, toasted grain, light yeast and a light peppery spice. Similar flavor, moderately bitter and lightly sweet with a lingering, dry and bitter finish with unfortunate hints of oxidation. Medium body with ample carbonation. Pretty good overall, would love to try it fresh though.

UXO (1654) - CANADA - OCT 2, 2016
Appearance: hazy medium gold with two fingers of rocky light ivory head, excellent retention and lacing. (5/5) Aroma: dry barnyardy funk, crackery malt, tropical fruit, pithy grapefruit, floral. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter, moderate funky tart. (8/10) Medium-light body, lively to moderate carbonation, bone dry verging on astringent moderate bitter and funky lingering finish. (4/5) I dunno that its the pinnacle of saisons, but dammit, its close. Complex aromas are dominated but not overwhelmed by a pleasant dusty funk, and the flavour is nicely balanced by an emphatic bitter. The PNW and ANZ hops provide an enjoyable combination of vinous fruit and citrus that bolster, rather than obscure, the underlying barnyardy funk. I suppose the hop character adds to my usual complaint about beefy ABV presence to make this a fairly out-of-spec Saison, but I have to say I quite enjoy it. Definitely edging into world-class territory regardless of whether you consider it a Saison or a BSPA. (17/20)

fiulijn (19831) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 1, 2016
Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver
Hazy to cloudy blond color, with generous head. Deep aroma, strong funky yeast presence, and citrus peel. The mouthfeel is very dry; there is a bit of crackery malt, very strong spicy yeast flavor, strong bitterness, and hop resins; the final is a bit astringent, but there is also some chicory.
The final is a bit over the top, but overall its a Saison with character, bold.
