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. neongolden (1611) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2013
(Project X bottle from brewery) Pours a medium gold with a white bubbly head, no lace. Aroma is a bit catty, citrus, some sweeter tropical fruit below (yellow mango?) and just a little yeasty spice with that fruit. Flavour has tart citrus, a little lemony, fruity (bit of peach, apple?), some earthy, spicy yeast, a little sour in the middle to end like some saisions, finishes dry with nice moderate hop bitterness, soft spice, a bit grainy/wheaty. Body moderate with a little cling, carbonation fairly low, nice and fresh and dry. Wonderful American Farmhouse, hops work well with the yeast, nice balance of sweet/tart/sour/dry. samzim (426) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 25, 2013
Scent of apricot and apple. Opaque golden colour. Slight sour flavour with mild bitterness. Flavours of dried fruit and nuts. Very tasty. HogTownHarry (6622) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 25, 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. AGAquino (667) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2012
On tap at Wvrst. Nice light yellow colour with lasting head. Nice aroma, fruity and spicy. Very nice saison.

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

Draught at Volo. Pours a hazy yellow with green hues and a small diminishing frothy white head. The aroma smells great!

Fantastic, I could drink this all night. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 18, 2012
