COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
THIS IS A COLLABORATION OF 13 QUÉBÉCOIS BREWERS. Pour la première fois dans l’histoire du Québec, 13 brasseurs se sont réunis pour élaborer une bière unique, issu de leur savoir-faire commun, dans le cadre de l’émission Ça va brasser! sur les ondes de V. Des céréales crues du Lac-St-Jean, du sarrasin malté en Mauricie, des houblons du Nouveau-Monde et une touche d’herbes des Laurentides, donnent à cette bière fermetnée avec une levure de type Saison un caractère propre à la créativité des brasseurs québécois!

piscator34 (1968) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 10, 2014
Bottled sample via brewedge. Gold in colour with strong carbonation and a bit of haze. Aromas are of under-ripe apricot, lemon peel, and herbs. Flavors are a blend of fleshy orchard fruit, white pepper, raw wheat, earth, and a bit of cut grass. Starts off medium bodied, but dries out fairly well. Fairly good, but a touch too fruity and rich on the palate for me.

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2014
Bouteille de 750 ml achetée chez Bière, etc. à Montréal au coût de $16.50. Dégustée le 16 décembre 2012 (Tulip). Bière dorée voilée. Mousse énormément lorsque versée, col très épais blanc persistant. Très effervescente. Odeur d’épices, de levure. Assez forte, assez sucrée, un peu amère. Saveur épicée (gingembre, coriandre), un peu âcre, goût de pamplemousse, de fleur. Grains bien présents, épicée mais sans excès. Trop chère même si très bonne Saison.

mabel (5805) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 2, 2014
[5212-20130412] Big bottle. Lemony saison yeast and pencil lead aroma. Hazy, orange body with a huge long-lasting foamy white head and nice lacing. Bitter lemon zesty yeast continues in the flavour. Medium body has a strange lively yeast feel on the tongue. Delicious! (8/4/8/4/17) 4.1

electrotype (226) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2013
Très belle bière, ultra invitante! Cuivrée et brouillée, avec une belle mousse qui perdure. J’aime aussi beaucoup l’odeur. En bouche, elle est très raffraichissante, on dirait un 4-5%, pas une 7%. Les saveurs ne m’impresionnent pas particulièrement cependant. Peut-être était-elle mieux lorsque très fraiche? Tout de même une bonne bière!

mcberko (6562) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2013
750mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of floral hops, Belgian yeast, and some mild fruity esters. Flavour brings out quite a hoppy profile, with dry floral hops, some Belgian yeast and dry crisp biscuity malt. Really flavourful and dry on the palate. Quite complex, with a great yeasty character. Excellent saison.

750ml. bottle from Peluso in Montréal.The color is a clear honey with a thick off white head and nice lace. The aroma is of hops and spicies and herbs with malt. The taste also like the above with added yeast and some cereals. This was a delit for the taste buds.

Bottle courtesy of Paul at Andy’s. Pours a light, glowing golden orange body with thin, active white lacing. Aroma is spice, yeast, pepper, and a light floralness. Mouthfeel is crisp and active with notes of Belgian yeast, crisp grassy hop, slightly peppery and additional spices.

Bottle an Andy’s courtesy of Paul by way of Dany. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Big and musky, soft and lightly sweet with a touch of citrus. Light and easy drinking with a good amount of musk with some floral bitterness. Very nice, long lingering musk.

In short: An original leafy/herbal golden Saison with a generous fruity hopping.
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed 5 months after the beer release.
The look: Mostly clear golden body topped by a medium white head leaving lots of lacings on the glass.
In long: Nose is pleasantly countryside-rustic well integrate flowery pepper spiciness. Taste ha cookie dough, lemon muffin, tea leafs, fun yeast, citrus fruits, pineapples, herbs, a mild spiciness. Big doughy mouthfeel with a lively carbonation. Good attenuation. A bitterness that this more reminiscent of the some of the bitter Oolong or green teas I drink everyday than that of typical hop bitterness. An very original Saison that goes off the beaten path while still retaining the essential characteristics of a good Saison. A beer brewed for a local tv show about craftbeer called “Ça Va Brasser!”, because of television and beer my living room couch is now a reverse tanning bed.
