Bottle: Poured a hazy golden color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of rustic malt with light spicy yeast and the cider barrel notes are subtle but still distinguishable. Taste is also dominated by rustic malt notes with some peppery yeast notes and some cider barrel notes are also distinguishable. Body is about a average with good carbonation. Very enjoyable if maybe a tad too sweet for the style.

I likely had the first or second sample at WVRST tap takeover.This was the collaboration saison with Ian of Amsterdam (although not credited on official list) aged in an apple cider barrel. The cider gives it a ice sour edge. The initial smell and taste is very winey. saison spices come through definitely in the secondary. Golden yellow.

Hazy blonde colour, one finger of white head, goos retention, lots of lace. Smell is quite funky with lots of tart fruit, apple, lemon, spicy points, light oak, some acidic/balsamic as well I also got a little bit of chlorine at times. Taste is full of tart apple and fruit, spice, lemon, yeasty funk, quite tart throughout, more fruits in the finish. Light-medium drying carbonation, medium-full feel. Solid stuff here, tons of apple and fruity funk, very drinkable and enjoyable.

On tap at WVRST, Great Lakes Movember Project X. Served in a tulip.
Paler golden yellow, light white head with mild retention and light lace. Nose lightly sour, some white wine, lemon, slight barrel with a touch of funk, green apple and pear. Taste is sour, light lemon, green apple, slight funk. Medium feel, a bit spritzy and a pucker in the finish. Flavourful and refreshing, light enough to consume large quantities of. This is being aged via the solera method, can't wait to try future iterations of this.

A bomber from the LCBO. Pours a semi-transparent straw colour. Very thin white head rapidly dissipating. Aromas are of light citrus and white wine. Tastes are peach, pineapple and more white wine. Overall, having been aged in cider barrels, they’ve had a positive effect on this one, making it a kind of marriage between beer and white wine. Quite delicious and very drinkable.

bomber into nonic pint. can't find a date code
a: a hesitantly vibrant pale yellow with about a finger of nearly-white head
s: typical saison notes -- spicy, yeasty, and citrusy, but there are some nice apple notes too. some slight funk. not the most potent aroma but it still makes me want to take a sip asap
t: oh yeah this is great. spicy, funky yeast and lemon up front, then a crazy tart apple presence emerges mid-palate adding a level of intriguing complexity and giving a really fruity and sour punch. i'm thinking granny smith or pink lady apples? slightly malty on the back end. finishes dry with the tartness tapering off
m: medium mouthfeel. pretty high carbonation but it's appropriate. love it
o: a damn good saison, the cider barrel-aging works wonders here
