650mL bottle, sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out farmhouse notes upfront, a little bit of wheat and a little citrus zest. Flavour brings out loads farmhouse notes, with a little citrus zest, lots of hay, and a little funk. Very hay dominating, with low-to-moderate funk. Highly drinkable and refreshing. Great Canadian saison. Lubiere (14127) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2012
A hazed golden ale with a thin white headd. In aroma, a smooth grassy malt with light sulfury notes and catnip hops. In mouth, a more clover laden malt with catty hops and light acidity, a bit of incense notes, not bad. On tap at Volo, June 24, 2012. Sammy (12497) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 27, 2012
Recent bottle from the brewery. A bang on farmhouse. Golden yellow with abundant white bubbly head. Funky all right in the smell. Very fresh taste and its yummy. Yeasty, smooth drinkable. jercraigs (10651) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2013 2012-12-01. Quick notes, seems fruitier and has more of a citrusy character to the hops than I remember from before. Average plus bodied palate. +1 overall? Bottle shared by Symes

2012-06-17. Lightly hazy pastel yellow body with a nice white head. 3+ Pleasant aroma, sweet fruity citrus, light pale malt, yeasty fruit character, something else I can’t put my finger on. Flavour is similarly fruity, sweet orange up front quickly transitions to punchier lemon/grapefruit citrus in the finish. Decent amount of bitterness lingers in the finish and aftertaste. Really mild spice touches. Average bodied palate is slightly lighter than my preference but it adds to the drinkability of it on a warm day. Pretty interesting and pretty nice stuff. Very drinkable. 73/8/3/16 - 3.7On tap at Bryden’s Best of the West, Toronto
2012-05-05. Lightly hazy dark yellow, modest white head lace. 3+ Flavour is relatively dry, very light alcohol, light floral hop bitterness over mild pale malt core. Very light fruity touches linger in the finish, alternating with dry pale malt. Very light funk around the edges. 7+ aroma is fruity and floral, bit of a dry wheat like kick, can’t quite put my finger on a descriptor of the fruit. Sort of pear meets lychee but not quite. Seems slightly sweeter as it warms up. 7+ Average plus palate is fairly effervescent. 3+Pretty solid. Not an every day one for me but lovely if in the mood for it. 8/3/7/3/16 - 3.7 On tap at Volo, Toronto
Tap at Volo. Pale straw-coloured pour. The aroma is light ad citrusy with soft notes of spice as well. A touch of tropical hop aroma. Fresh and citrusy. Light bodied and dry with a great fresh tropical Citra hop flavour on the finish. Very bright and quite tasty. A solid, solid brew.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2012 [4423-20120505] Tap. Light Riesling white wine aroma. Slightly hazy, pale yellow orange body with a quick foamy white head and some spotted lacing. Light fishy saisony flavour has a lot of underlying straw notes but nothing too out of place. Light-medium body. Subtle and welcoming. (7/3/7/4-/16) 3.7

Pours clear blond with foamy head and a little lacing. Aroma has lots of citrus with some orange, almost a little candy. Some bitterness and a slight touch of sourness at the end. Carbonation is pretty high. Nice mouthful of beer. On tap at volos. blankboy (7735) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2012
Draught at Volo. Pours a hazy yellow with green hues and a small diminishing frothy white head. The aroma smells great! It’s herbal and hoppy along with citrus fruit, sweet malt and some light sweetness. Very nice flavour: Fruity, citrusy and herbal along with wheat and light hops. Average to medium bodied. Fantastic, I could drink this all night. Radek Kliber (7470) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAY 15, 2012

May 2, 2012 - on draught at Volo. Really attractive bright hazy light banana yellow with a fairly large lasting white creamy/fizzy head. Pungent aroma (catty, almost citra-like) with tart fruit and light spice/yeast - really good stuff, not boozy, not too sweet - really good. Taste follows - light grain background, not as catty, more wheat/flour, the fruit seems to be green strawberry or raspberry, quite sharply tart, it works well with the yeast, even cranberry pucker there - and hardly any alcohol character. Light body, quite acidic, decent but mild carbonation, finishes dry and acidic - just right on the palate, a terrific saison. Well done, GL.
