From Waterloo Brewing Co,
A summer specialty Saison brew with refreshing citrus and floral notes whose recipe and packaging pay tribute to Northern Ontario’s lush evergreen forests.
Appearance | Pale yellow with a foamy head that quickly disappears.
Smell | Spices, fruits, honey, smokiness, yeast, and lemon.
Taste | Spices, fruits, malts, yeast, lemon, smokiness, and citrus.
Aftertaste | Dry finish with lingering notes of spices and citrus.
Overall | Jack Pine Belgian Ale is a light-bodied brew that’s pretty refreshing at first sip. It’s full of spices and fruits with a hint of smokiness. It’s a very dry brew, similar to a cider. For those who enjoy Belgian-style brews will enjoy this light brew.
Waterloo’s Summer Small Batch Brews are available for a limited time this summer at select LCBO and Beer Store locations across Ontario in 6x473mL packs for $13.50.
