Apparence: D?une couleur jaune dorée opaque, elle est coiffée d?une bonne mousse d?une bonne durée. Effervescence difficile à évaluer, mais semble légère.
Arômes: Au nez, ce sont des arômes de malt frais. Aussi, il y a des notes d’agrumes et légèrement épicé (poivré).
Saveurs: En bouche, c’est un corps moyen. Au goût, c’est un des flaveurs de malt avec des notes d’agrumes. Finale moyenne, avec une légère effervescence et une légère amertume.

4.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

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)
