COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian ale has traditionally been brewed to be strong, spicy, and contemplative. Modern brewers however have managed to start a trend of brewing ales that are light, dry, hoppy, and refreshing. Throughout our travels we learned to fall in love with these beers, and so we wanted to brew something inspired by these ales so that you can share the love on this side of the pond.

robinvboyer (4750) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 26, 2017
Slightly hazt yellow pour, medium white head. Yeasty aroma, some sharp, bright cereals and grassy, slightly resinous hops. Light mouth feel, lively carb. Finish is yeasty, bright, sharp and crisp. Bright, grassy hop finish, carb is a little too much, but other than that, a nice sessionable beer, with just enough going on to keep you interested.

Boutip (6533) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2017
Can: Poured a light golden color ale with a nice large white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of lightly sweet malt notes with some subtle fruity ester. Taste is a mix of fruity ester with some sweet Belgian style malt notes. Body is light with good carbonation. Easy to drink with just enough character.

LouisP (574) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 1, 2017
Une bière blonde, avec une touche orangée, qui nous montre une touche de carbonatation, ainsi qu’une petite effervescence. Au nez, on sent surtout une levure belge rappelant fortement celle des saisons. C’est sucré, poivré, avec une petite touche fruité également. En bouche, la touche fruitée s’avère beaucoup plus proéminente, avec un bon goût de mangues qui parvient à être plus fort que la levure belge, qui est plus en support dans cette session belge. C’est très rafraîchissant, avec une levure qui donne beaucoup de rondeur à l’ensemble.

Quevillon (3172) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 27, 2017
355 ml can purchase at the brewery on January 4, 2017. Hazy light gold, medium head. Dry fruity yeast aroma, hoppy lemongrass. Dry medicinal herb hops taste, a bit of pine, quite dry bitterness. Belgian session is still a session, buff!

omhper (25723) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 17, 2017
Keg at Tooth and Nail, Ottawa. Hazy pale amber, small head. Tart nose with slight milk and citrus. Bone dry with light body and clean mouthfeel. Crisp wheat bread, light hay and spice, citrus peels. Lightly metallic finish. Too hard malt.

AleRider78 (1451) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2016
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a fairly big frothy off-white head and has a slightly hazy golden appearance. Some nice thick dirty lacing. Aromas of grapefruit, floral and citrus hops, some piney notes. Flavours are mostly fruity, grapefruit, lots of citrusy notes abound. Medium/full bodied mouthfeel. Pretty good retention. Lively carbonation. A little bit of a tangy like finish. Very subtle hints of lemon. Quite flavourful and well balanced makes this one pretty enjoyable.

cfrancis (3573) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2016
Pours cloudy yellow gold with a small white top. Aroma is light yeast, biscuit malt and pepper. Taste is lightly pepper, yeast and a touch of yeast. Small hop presence on the back end. Nice light saison.

3.7
rejtable (2836) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2016
Can from brewery. Porus orange with some head and lots of lacing. Notes of yeast, orange zest and peach. Nose is fruity. Medium body lively carbonation.

3.5
Crockett (1127) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2016
Pours straw yellow with mild haze. Big pillowy white head. Nose is funky, with lots of yeast, wheat, citrus. Very strong carbonation that carries a pile of pepper. Fresh yeasty baguette crustiness. Lots of citrus sitting on top of some burnt/medicinal and grassy hops. Tropical fruits fade in and out. This still has a bit more pronounced alcohol flavour than what is usually in a session beer.
