pumpkinhead2 (290) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 28, 2013
Bière jaune dorée, de l’or liquide, voilée d’une multitude de toute petites particules, effervescence moyenne, surmontée d’un très large col blanc, mousseux à souhait, tel de la crème fouettée, qui se réduit tranquillement laissant une belle dentelle sur les parois du verre. Arômes un peu timide, léger malt, un peu de biscuit, céréales, grain frais, quelques herbes salées, un certain houblon floral, un peu de levure et une pointe de fruité (agrumes avec pêche). Nez intéressant et assez complexe, mais manquant quelque peu d’intensité. En bouche, c’est à la fois pétillant et mousseux, avec une belle onctuosité au palais, une belle rondeur. Au goût, céréales, pain, grain frais, léger sucre d’orge, saveurs d’agrumes et de pêche, belle petite acidité, houblon floral qui domine la finale, amertume de faible à modérée. Très bonne bière!

ineedbeer (619) - Oakland, California, USA - OCT 3, 2013
2013 bottle from Tom10101. Aroma is a nice clean balanced blend of fruity esters and phenolics. Moderate citrus and pear notes with a hint of red apple and a slightly floral ester note. Light pepper and coriander phenolic character. Light graininess. Pours a cloudy pale yellow gold with very large pillowy white head with rather good head retention. Moderate lacing and small legs. Flavor starts with a slightly sweet grain character with a hint of wheat. More phenolic than in the aroma with a moderate pepper note, especially towards the finish. Lighter esters with them mostly being citrus and a floral note. There is a light tropical fruit and banana note in the beginning though. Medium noble hop flavor and medium bitterness. Some lingering mineral notes from the water. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Water has a moderately hard character to it. Overall a very nice, enjoyable clean Saison. This beer isn’t funky but the eaters and phenolics provide a nice complexity as does the hops and water. All the aspects of the beer are fairly well balanced with the aroma being more fruity and the flavor being more phenolic.
