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.

Food Pairing

This wonderful Saison paired well with... chicken in a mushroom sauce

Enjoy!

Pours a hazy light yellow with tons of head. Nice soapy lacing down the glass. Smells of wheat and banana in the nose. There is a hint of spice notes as well. Tastes of sweet malt, spices, whole wheat and definitely more than a hint of alcohol. This is a very refreshing wheat beer although I feel it's a little over carbonated for my taste.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Bright pour, terrific white head that lingers.

Smell: Smelled clean like a pilsener with a hint of spiciness.

Taste: This is where the spiciness really hit me: on my tastebuds. Delicious, without being heavy-handed.

Mouthfeel: Medium/light body. Quite refreshing.

Drinkability: Very tasty and drinkable. Cloying Saisons drive me crazy. The even-handed ones like this make me appreciate the style and brewing skill. Well done.
