Bouteille 341ml. De couleur jaune pâle et claire. Nez de levures fruitées (citron) et épicées (gingembre), de grains de céréales fraîches, légèrement floral et léger de houblon herbeux (herbes fraîches). Plutôt mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture aux notes huileuses. Léger goût de levures fruitées (lime) avec un moyen goût épicé (gingembre, traces de poivre) et un léger goût floral (présent en arrière-goût toute la gorgée) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un moyen goût de grains de céréales avec des petites notes de pain puis en finale l’on retrouve une très légère amertume de houblon herbeux (herbes mouillées et herbes fraîches). Post-goût long et aux notes sèches, composé d’un goût floral avec un léger goût fruité (zest de lime) et de faibles notes de houblon herbeux.

Spab (2575) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2011
341 ml bottle from La Barik. Pours a nearly clear, bright pale yellow with small white cap. Aroma is perfumey flowers and spices. Flavour is also floral with some light citrus and spicing that to my mind recalls rosemary and a touc of pepper. Light crisp finish. Interesting and refreshing.

Quevillon (2550) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 30, 2011
341 ml bottle bought at Peluso (Montreal) on May 26, 2011. Crystal blonde, thin head. Aroma of malted rye and herbs, very floral. Slightly salty and dry taste of herbs, not that malty at all, almost no bitter aftertaste. Not bad but I wish there was more taste to it!

cfrancis (2511) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 19, 2011
Pours a weak clear yellow with no head and no lacing. Aroma is faint herbs and floral grains. Taste is crisp, clean, floral and herbal. But lacking that dry bitterness. A little too delicate for me.

Fred82 (2115) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 26, 2010
Sample at Chambly festival.
Appearance : Clear pale yellow. No lacing.
Aroma : Herbal and quite spicy. Lots of herbs. A bit like algae.
Taste : Herbal with algae. A bit fruity and grassy. Maybe a bit salty also. Finish rather dry.
Overall : A bit unilateral. Too much spices and herbs. Not my type of saison (and it’s not even classified as a saison here...)

Minderbinder (2028) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 1, 2012
Bottle. 341ml. Pours very clear, pale gold. "Almost" water-like. Not much head. Aroma is of flowers. Tastes flowers, hops. Crisp finish. Very drinkable and refreshing. "Clear" lack of complexity. Gives the impression of a cold chamomilla herbal tea. I do lie the flowers, but that’s really all that beer’s got.
