COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beaus’s welcomes the heat of the summer with Patio Saison, a snappy and refreshing unfiltered ale. The 5.9% ABV saison offers up mild pepper-and-clove spice in harmony with both the citrusy zest of organic orange peel, and the floral aroma of organic elder flower. The saison style has its origins in the Willonia regoion of Belgium. Traditionally this beer was brewed to slake the thirst of farmhands during harvest time, so it makes a perfect beer for warm weather.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2014 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.

600 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy orangeish straw with a resilient, thick white head. Aroma is orange, lemon, cloves, pepper. Flavor is pepper, mint, peach, orange, lemon, zesty. Finish is floral, good hoppy kick. Lingering pepper, cloves, orange peels. Medium body, soft mouthfeel, average to strong carbonation. Great summer ale.

mathieuc (2956) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2016
Pours a pretty clear golden with a medium white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of citrus, cereals, pepper. Taste is also of citrus/lemon, bready cereals, pepper. Nice classic saison. Body is medium, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel is fluffy. Pleasantly surprised!

Gluepot (327) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 13, 2015
Malt and spice on the nose. a light white head on a yellow-amber body. Zesty lemon hoppiness supported by tropical elements lead the taste profile of this punchy saison. A hint of orange, bready malt and a hint of graininess underpin a tasty and hoppy offering. Clean and refreshing with great unity. A richer body than most saisons.

JoeMcPhee (9169) - 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 (304) - 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 (1687) - Hopville, 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.
