look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Purchased at the LCBO in a 4pk of 12oz bottles- $13.10
A- Very good. Opened well and poured a nice light foamy head that stayed for minutes
S- WOW this is the best yeasty beer I have had in a while. Have had a few Saison but this one is fantastic.
T- Almost as good as it smells. This brewery has it going on. Yeast, malt, floral hints from coriander. Slightly sour.
M- Creamy. Slight bitterness but only at first sip. Saison
O- Excellent! Very good. Had a bomber I bought in Buffalo that I just didn't want to open and now I know what I got.... Will hold that baby for a bit.
This wonderful Saison paired well with... chicken in a mushroom sauce

4.04/5 rDev -2.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours with three fingers of bubbly white head. Active carbonation is huge. Color is a light straw yellow. Sticky lacing left behind as head very slowly dissipated.
Smell: Pears, spices, bananas, and semi-sweet bready malts greet the drinker. There is some very dry pepper, and ashy notes on the body. Earth and dirt mesh with some light hop notes on the back end. Wow a lot going on here.
Taste: Touches of pepper and airy spices hit on the front first. Bread, sweet dough, and some salty hops show up on the body. More sweet malts ride through on the finish and some lingering spices go well together.
Mouthfeel: Bright carbonation with pleasant transitions of spice and sweet malts.
Overall: A great American saison. The pepper and dryness is heavier then I expected but this overall is a slow sipper that is easy to enjoy.
