On tap at the Brige Road Brewery. Served a nice pale golden color with a good head that fades quite slowly to ample lacing. Aroma is a mix of citrus and pine with a nice funk. Spice and an interesting fruit mix in the background. Taste is a changing mix of citrus, pine, a mild malt sweetness with a bit of spice, fruit and a nice dose of funk. There is a nice bitterness with a slightly spicy finish. Medium body, with an original robust flair that makes this beer stand out. Not a typical saison as this one has a bit of an IPA personality without being overbearing. An ineresting and very enjoyable beer. Well worth checking out.

0,5l bottle from Alko. Pours cloudy golden with a medium head. Aroma is malts, fruits and plenty of hops. Flavor is malts, some fruits and a huge amount of hops. Great!

Eructoblaster (3336) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2013
Bottle - 500ml.Beautiful, cloudy blond body with a thick, lasting white foamy head. Fresh, sharp hoppy aroma with coriander and citrusy hints. Alcohol is very well hidden. Its sharp hoppy taste carries coriander, citrusy, yeasty, and some grainy notes. Ends with a long, dry, robust bitter/herbal finish. Wow!

This beer is dominated by the yeast and hops. The malt makes its presence felt in the aroma as you tip the glass towards you, grainy and fresh smelling, but as soon as it hits the palate its sour grapefruit or green grapes. But the sourness also moves very quickly to long lasting resinous hop bitterness under the influence of the galaxy and Stella hops. Pours a slightly cloudy tan colour with thick foamy head. Great beer.

Pours deep hazy gold into a tulip. Fluffy white head with excellent retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Sweet bready caramel, tropical fruit and resin aromas. Crisp with hay, mango and bubblegum upfront turning dry in the lasting bitter lemon pith finish.

Bottle@home. One finger foam. Haze brown. Plenty of strange hoppy notes. Clove and earthlike notes too. Intense bitterness. Great bitter saison.

What an interesting beer. Probably the best version of the two styles mixed Ive had. Great aroma of grape fruit and slight bubble gum. Very refreshing and dry. Interesting, thirst quenching and tasty.

Has a hazy golden colour and a decent off white head which hangs around nicely. I really like aroma, its quite citrusy and fruity. The citrus taste also comes through, a bit like grapefruit for me. Good mouthfeel which matches well to the beer. Overall, Id happily buy one again.

On tap at mrs Parmas , pours cloudy with a white head receding, the aroma is awesome, summer fruits meet spice and freshly swan pine. On the tongue, its a bit cold as served and the cellar an here seems to have all of the beers carbonated the same way, its bright, medium carb, some sweet malt but mostly hoppy goodness and subtle spice. Finish is dry out satisfyingly, just like a saison should.

Straw coloured body, slightly hazy and with a lasting head. Grapefruit and light spice on the aroma. Fruit and spice in the taste, medium body, very refreshing and without noticeable alcohol.
