Idiosynkrasie (3853) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 7, 2014
750ml bottle. Hazy golden colour with average to huge, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Typical Saison aroma in mild fulfilment, cautious fruity notes, a very cautious touch of smoke, herbal hoppy overtones. Taste is rather similar; soft palate, soft carbonation, silky mouthfeel. Though very mild and soft a superbly balanced, multifaceted and "ample" Saison.

Kinz (3299) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy light gold, attractive white head, really just about the perfect looking beer. Aroma is pale malts with a delicate balance of yeast driven spice and some subtle grassy hopping on the finish. Flavor here is a match. I can’t adequately describe how perfectly balanced everything is in this beer - it all just hangs together perfectly, and hits a great mix of being complex yet "drinkable." A truly superb saison.

sulawang (623) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 28, 2014
Visual: Bottled in a noticeabley heftier and higher quality bottle than other North American microbrews. Pours opulent amber copper with a fantastically large and lasting foamy head, and a torrent of CO2 activity, runny lacing. Nose: Grassy with bright citrus wheat malts. (6/10-pungency) Attack: incoming crisp bite, creamy-foamy mouthfeel Mid-palate: continued creaminess, mild sour/light tangy, (MAIN) sweet wheat malts, yeast/grass (HINT) pink grapefruit, pepper, bitter peel Finish: softly bitter hopped fruit-malt finish. (supremely clean) Summary: This beer has a great balance of texture, palate sensation, taste, and body. Another good brew in addition to the Brut I’ve tried of theirs.

wolffish (197) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 15, 2014
Bouteille de 2012. Odeur et goût de céréales bien présents et supportés par une bonne amertume. Équilibrée...

Diogène (1066) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2013
Bouteille de 750ml. Bière voilée de couleur jaune pâle et surmontée d’une très épaisse mousse blanche affichant une très bonne tenue. Au nez, elle offre des arômes de céréales fraîches, de levure, de miel, de fleur et d’herbe avec une touche citronnée. En bouche, les céréales et la levure sont bien présentes, avec des notes florales et une amertume modérée. Corps moyen et des bulles très fines.

neuromatt (1159) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2013
750 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in a tulip. Pours hazy golden with a large, fluffy white head that remains and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. On the nose, there are notes of grass, grain, coriander, wheat, flowers, spice and a touch of fruit. The flavour is balanced, slightly sweet malts paired with wheaty notes, appropriate grassy hops and a nice amount of spice. Notes of banana and green apple emerge as it lingers on the palate. The finish is slightly more bitter, long and spicy. On the palate, it is light-medium in body with a dry texture and above-average carbonation. Overall, this is a nice spicy Saison that develops nicely on the palate. 2013-06-14

cargo150 (603) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 12, 2013
Bière de couleur jaune opaque avec un col blanc très épais et qui va jamais se dissiper. Nez de houblon herbal, de céréales,d’agrumes et d’épices. En bouche complexe mélange de houblon,céréales,agrumes et d,épices avec en finale une légère amertume. Bière assez complexe pas tout a fait mon genre, un peu trop sec.

aumax1 (243) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 7, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2013 750 ml de blonde très effervescente. Très beau col. Arôme d?agrume et de houblon. En bouche le plaisir est bien plus grand. On retrouve un mélange d?acidité et d?amertume très bien équilibré.

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - NOV 30, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy straw gold with a beautiful foamy white cap that leaves behind good lacing. The aroma is lemon, a biit of funk and basement, pepper, hay, yeast and esters. Flavour is estery, peach and citrus, with a dry grain like quality which moves into a peppery not that trails into the finish with a mix of fresh bread. Its a solid, complex, entertaining and drinkable brew.
