L: This beer poured a clear yellow-gold color, with a very light head that dissipated quickly.
S: Crackery, with very subtle wine hints. And I mean VERY subtle. Other notes included slight peppery-ness and very slight malty aroma.
T: The taste was a crisp, crackery malt. Very lightly toasted with, again, very very subtle hints of grape, and white wine. The taste was edging more toward lager than I expected it to be.
F: Very light and airy on the feel, with a sharp, crisp carbonation bite to it.
O: While I'm not entirely ready to call this beer a Saison (I feel it more resembles a lager), the term Saison stays pretty loose and inclusive as it does include the slightest hint of white wine. Don't get me wrong, this beer is very refreshing, and I wish it were summer time so I had an excuse to crush a couple in a row. Good stuff to Insight, keep it up.
Cheers,
-B

Cool mix since it has sauvignon blanc grapes. It's pretty good. It grows on you the more you drink it.

Had this on tap at the Bulldog in Lowertown. The beer had a copper appearance wit no head. The aromas included a slight, white wine smell, but it was generally airy. The flavors were more vocal with that white wine grape flavor while the mouthfeel was somewhat thick, even a little syrupy. Overall, really enjoyed the flavor complexity.

Hazy yellow colour. Smells like cereal malts, grainy and Belgian yeast. Tastes like it smells; sweet and malty upfront, banana, a little bitter, and a yeasty dry finish. Hints of spice and clove. I can taste a touch of grape but seems more nuanced than expected.

I saw this in the store yesterday and thought it looked interesting so I picked one up. Cracked it open later that evening and the immediate smell I got was a little hoppy with some fruity notes. On first taste I thought I had mistakenly picked up an IPA but as quick as the bitterness arrived it was overpowered by a sweet fruitiness flavor of grapes and I fell in love with it.

4 out of 5 will buy again. (but in a 4 pack not a single)
