This one is only 5.5%, but lots of nice flavour.

On tap at the brewery, Vancouver.
Strawberry blonde with white film. 3.75
Rubber, lots of lemon rind, and some herb on the nose. 4
Crackery malts, Band-Aid phenols, lots of lime zest, some bubble gum, and a touch of Noble grass. 4
Slight clovery leave and numbing linger.
Almost medium, round, fizzy. 4

Solid. Not afraid of the phenols, and doesn’t go the modern, over-hopped route. I wish it was a bit more “traditional” (i.e. weaker) but no quarrels here. 4

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a light to medium golden amber with a two finger white head with sustained nice carbonation and great lacing. Aroma of grainy malt, saison yeast, peppery spice, light lemon tartness and a hint of funk. Flavor is wheat and grainy malt with a little huskiness, light apple, pear and lemon, pepper; finishes with light hop bitterness, residual grainy malt; leaning dry, but with a slight sweetness. Medium bodied with sharp peppery carbonation that meld well with the light pepper in the flavor. A nicely made traditional grainy malt saison with pleasant hints of fruit and spice. I was relieved that the tartness in the aroma was only a mild lemon tartness in the flavor, supported well by the malt. The flavor thins out just a little in the middle of the taste, but the lingering aftertaste redeems this with a traditional dry grainy finish with slight sweetness. Well done, I'll look for other styles from this brewery.

Lot's of peppery, spicy yeast notes slightly overshadowing a fruity under layer. Mouth feel is dry but not astringent. Finishes fairly clean. Slight alcohol warming.

It tastes absolutely fabulous with a hint of refreshing citrus. Love the colour. Love this brew.
