The Rhino winterfest. A bit funky. Not very drinkable for me today although smooth mouthfeel. Just off-putting spices and yeast that was too up front. Lasting head. This is his best effort so far, I would like to try the biere de garde which I would expect to be more understated.

Purchased at the LCBO with an aging date of March 2013. 750ml caged bottle served at 8deg C in a tulip glass.

A- Excellent carbonation. Opened with a hearty pop, poured with a 1.5" head that stayed for almost 5mins. Slightly cloudy off yellow colour.

S- Citrus overtones.

T- Citrus shines through right away. After warming slight sourness builds to a tart finish. Light on the palate surprisingly. Yeasty

M- Pretty good. Nice, light, full body with a touch of creaminess.

O- Not bad, will not go out of my way to get another however if I saw it on tap would definitely try it again. Interesting beer from Niagara on the Lake. New breweries are popping up all over Ontario these days and the future looks bright for some interesting finds.

Food Pairing

This wonderful yeasty brew went well with.... BBQ hamburgers! Top 'em how you like 'em!

Enjoy

Poured from corked and caged bottle dated March 27, 2013. Purchased at the Brewery in Ontario on 5/29/13. Nifty lookin bottles...$12 CAD
Huge pop! Pours a burnt orange color with lots of carbonation and white head. It looks a little to dark in color for the style...
Nice aromas of peppery spice, orange zest, bready malts and a bit of noble hop.
Taste is a bit over-bready, but good spicy notes of black pepper and orange. Hops are a bit over bearing and make this a bot too bitter...but a decent Saison. Not amazing...
I expected a bit more from this literal farmhouse in the middle of Niagara Wine country.
