3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poours a medium golden with good clarity and a finger of white foam. Nose is a bit of spicy caramel, some yeast esters and rustic straw hints. The palate is more pleasant but has a round caramel backbone that I wish was a touch drier and a bit more rustic. Overall its a decent beer just a bit off the mark for a saison in my opinion. Bitter floral grass finish lingers with hints of lemon peel.

Some store: bottle poured into plastic cup. Pours bubbly golden with a white head. Aroma is peppery, slightly funky, and quite fruity. Taste is similar: spicy, a bit sweet, and dry. This was a pretty run of the mill saison to my mind. Good.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 mL bottle. Pours protein hazed, a honey tone with a frothy white head that lingers and laces. Yeast driven barnyard, spice, banana, pear and bubble gum notes, some moderate grainy sweetness and Old World hopping. Mildly sweet crystal malt juxtaposes the dryness. Finishes bitter. Creamy texture augmented with full carbonation. Moderate body and a lasting bitter finale that coats the palate.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Fruity aroma, lemon, pears and some light clove phenolics, no noticeable hops. Cloudy golden color with an off white head. Mild clove phenolics in the flavor, lemon like citrus flavor comes through. Slight oxidized note in the background. Some light funk. Medium body, low carbonation. Overall it has all the tight characteristics but the carbonation leaves it a little too sweet and heavy.

Ambrée, assez mousseuse et pétillante. Légèrement épaise, elle présente des saveurs fruitées de mangues et d’abricots. Elle est une bonne, la plus simple du style que j ai goûté.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Single from a local IGA. Pours a cloudy golden-amber with a frothy off-white head, good retention and lots of foamy lace. Aromas of Belgian Ale yeast with some spices (cloves, coriander) with some rye notes. Also hints of sweet sugars and apples. The taste is a little unbalanced though. A little malty, a little sour, a little sweet, a little grass and some light alcohol. Too bad it is all over the place, as this could be a good one.
