Only reason i gave appearance low rating is because liquid had cloudy and slimy appearance. It made beer appear very unappealing. However, head was clear white and while not overly big lasted quite a while. It tasted quite refreshing and light considering amount of alcohol it contains. My bottle also says it has 6.3% not 5.9%. It was not well carbonated and as i mentioned before with appearance texture was also sticky and oily. However it had a very nice soft finish to it.

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.

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.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1843) - 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.

Bendrixian (1087) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 8, 2014
light amber colour with decent clarity and a pillowy white head. Esters, fruit and some banana mixed with kitchen spices on the aroma. On the palate it is well carbonated, which enhances the spice kick and bitter components mixed with yeasty esters and a fairly fast finish. Decent enough stuff.

RickTheRick (360) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2014
Blonde et trouble, une mousse intense se pose sur le dessus de la bière. Le nez me rappelle un beau une weizen, avec ses effluves de pain aux bananes et de miel. Étrangement, on déroge complètement du bouquet et je fus surpris par le goût citronné très prononcé de la Patio. Très douce et facile à boire, la finale est un peu poivrée. Pas mal.

Bottle from Boew's brewery. Refreshing, peppery, long drive back for another one, but would be willing some day. Light mouthfeel just right for a saison. Nice long lasting bitter peppery aftertaste.

flip_soeperman (580) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 25, 2014
Aroma is more like a wheat beer, with some banana, little bit of spiciness in their. Medium bodied, relatively dry with a nice subtle lingering bitterness.

blankboy (6007) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 24, 2014
[Bottle (600ml)] Pours a hazy, bubbly golden-orange with a huge lasting rocky white head. Aroma is sweet, grassy and herbal along with Belgian yeast, citrus, other fruit and wheat. Spicy, yeasty flavour along with citrus fruit, some light sweetness and herbs. Spicy bitter finish. Medium bodied. A pretty good version of the style -- it’s quite spicy which I like.

Ferris (3790) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle - Wheat, grass, banana and some spice. Cloudy gold with a rich white head. Banana, light hop bitterness, citrus and some grass. Refreshing and a nice bitterness.

Pours deep tangerine with a two finger cream cap atop. This is a more than decent homegrown saison that boasts big flavour & high drinkability. I like the sharp carbonation & the way the spicing is more subtle than other interpretations of this style. I call bullshit on the score below mine. Will buy again.
