grflegg (3) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 8, 2015 does not count
Firstly, I’d like to note I bought this bottle in QC. Is drastically fresher than if I’d waited for it to come to Alberta (and a third of the price). It pours a shade of gold with a tight, billowing head that gradually comes down to a nice cap. The nose shows banana and hay, both of which come through in the taste backed up by a spiced characteristic, transitioning well into a moderately low bitterness English hop. Despite a sweet honeyed flavor in the finish, it comes out off-dry by the end. The body is very crisp, and surprisingly clean for a saison. A high carbonation profile might be helping in that, but is no less pleasant for it.

TET (1994) - FINLAND - MAY 1, 2015
A golden beer, a head is big and blond, strong bubbling. Aroma is strongly aromatic, oranges, honey, fruits, some hops. Taste has strong oranges and flowers, fruits and honey. Medium bodied, nice carbonation. Aromatic and fresh saison, not a typical.

erickok (4135) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - APR 13, 2015
Golden, fairly clean. Spiced, herbal, citrus. Refined malts, less hoppy and less funky than expected, but an honest saison. Drinkable heavy carbonation. Well developed, nice stuff. (75cl bottle from Bière Révolution)

UXO (704) - CANADA - OCT 21, 2014
Pours clear deep gold with two fat fingers of pillowy white head diminishing gradually to a thick cap, moderate to heavy lacing (4/5). Nose is hay, banana, cloves, slight barnyard, grassy hops (9/10). Taste is moderate sweet, moderate to strong bitter (9/10). Light to medium body, prickly sustained carbonation, lingering bitter finish (4/5). Excellent. Very much a farmhouse style saison, yet I find it reminds me of a Belgian Tripel like Duvel. Some might dislike the somewhat aggressive carbonation, but I enjoy the additional crispness and sharpness it provides - no tongue coating here. The slight barnyard funk on the nose also turns into a decently sharp brett-like edge on the tongue, making this feel more bitter than its 35 IBU. Not sure I’d want to cellar this one much longer if that really is brettanomyces, though - it might get a little unbalanced. Best to drink this one on the fresh side, I think, and this one was just over six months old. Really very enjoyable and another example of a world-class Belgian style being brewed in Canada. (18/20)
