600 ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a foggy amber, with thick white head and moderate carbonation. Aromas right out of the gate feature white pepper, spice box, and a light citrus blend. Taste is white pepper, coriander, and a hint of bitter orange peel. I’m not overly familiar with Saisons, but regardless this a very tasty, thirst quenching winner of a summer beer. One of the best combinations of aroma, taste, and being sessionable, I have seen in any beer in a while, and definitely my fave Beau’s offering of 2014 thus far.

Absolutely solid saison. Incredibly flavorful. Sprightly in mouthfeel. Recommended.

JoeMcPhee (8410) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2012
Tap at The Only Cafe. Pale golden pour with a tight white head. The aroma is softly peppery with a touch of clove and some light citrus as well. A little. It of lean wheaty spice as well as some prickly ethanol (even though it’s only 5.9%). Light palate and appropriately dry. A little bit of pear seems to pop up here. Solid - if pedestrian - saison.

MXD (303) - Gatineau/St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - APR 14, 2012
On tap the Aulde Dubliner. Color is pretty much plain yellow. Average whitehead, a wee bit hazy. Aroma is really heavy on yeast and lemon. Taste is typical saison -- fruits (pear, lemon) and tartness. Quite carbonated and rather dry. Typical Beau’s freshness/grainy mouthfeel. Good.

pootzboy (1590) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2012
On Tap: Beautiful shimmering orange-gold color, 2 finger tight white cap, appropriate carbonation (much like a bottle conditioned ale). Aroma is a bouquet of spice, succulent fruits,biscuity malt, floral hops. A little more substantial body than lighter colored Saisons. A flavourful blend of pungent wheaty buiscuity malt, fruitiness, herbacious undertones, a bit of citrus - goes to a clean dry bittering finish. Very thirst busting and a welcome break from Saisons that obliterate the ale’s subtlty with corriander and other adjuncts.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2060) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 11, 2014
On tap at bar volo. A mild spicy banana estery nose on a solid copper pour with biscuity light malts. The taste is zesty light malts, citrus & earthy yeast notes. It is a solid saison that is yeast forward.

dandeman (505) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 17, 2014
On tap at the Ottawa Beer Fest. Brassée avec du zeste d’orange et des fleurs de sureau. Orange et houblons herbacés au nez. Le visuel est doré tirant sur le orangé, la mousse est superbe, témoignant de la fraicheur du produit. En bouche, les levures sont actives. Le zeste d’orange est également bien intégré avec un bon houblonnage herbacé et légèrement résineux avec quelques notes de foin. Une bière très fraiche, très campagnarde, mais manque légèrement de complexité.

BreWedge (314) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2014
600 ml bottle. Pours a lightly hazy yellow (poured to the dregs so some sediment suspended in there as well) with a big pillowy white head. Aromas are zesty citrus (lemon or orange), pepper, banana, and a little cotton candy. Aroma is dominant spice (pepper), get a little bit of yeast, and some of the banana tastes typical of a wheat beer. Nice bite on the palate from the pepper and the carbonation, long bitter finish. Really nice beer.
