750ml bottle from the LCBO. bright, golden pour, with a big bubble white head. big fresh grassy hop aroma with some good cereals. Great carbonation, solid mouth feel. Wonderful malty, cereal finish, with a good amount of bitterness. light peppery notes, with the sharp grassy hops, and touches of funk. nice saison.

neongolden (462) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2013
(750mL bottle from LCBO) Pours clear medium gold with a huge head of dense white froth, abundant lace. Aroma is dominated by pepper and farmhouse yeast, spicy with a bit of a noble hop-type bite. Beneath that there is a soft sweet fruit character, white grape, apple. Flavour is yeasty and peppery up front, then a bit of malt sweetness and fruity esters, a bit citrusy with a little grape. The light sweetness fades into hoppy bitterness, more pepper, light spice on the finish, slight sour yeast/malt character predominately dry and bitter and crisp at the end. Body medium for style, slightly oily, effervescent carb but not overdone, much of it went to the head. Refreshing, well-made, balanced and reasonably complex traditional saison. Not pushing any boundaries stylistically but great on a warm day.

shorlin (659) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - JUL 9, 2013
Aroma is full of nice pepper spice. Almost buttery as well. Appearance is a great gold, nice and hazy, with a crazy amount of lace. Taste is full of good sweetness. Not a big finish to the beer, but a great saison.

Draft @ Delirium. Dorée sur un léger trouble, col blanc épais. Arôme présente ce côté grains rappelant la drêche avec un côté levure et note de pomme. Malt discret et je note ici, un côté subtile de malt fumé tirant sur la bacon? ainsi que d’un grain spécial tirant sur l’épeautre. Palais est malté moyen, levure distincte avec encore une fois un possible mais minimal ajout fumé? Les houblons procurent un profil citronné suivi de suite par un malté pâle-caramel. Note aussi un fruité presque pomme et qcq esters qui pour moi est bizarre pour une saison. L’inspiration belge se fait présente avec une fin de bouche offrant un résiduel grain auquel je n’accroche pas. Reste néanmoins correcte.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
8 oz pour at Beer Revolution. Pours a hazy straw colour with a frothy white head and lots of lace. Aroma is of farmhouse yeast, pepper, citrus, soft fruits Clean mouthfeel, medium carbonation, mild alcohol warmth. Taste is a crisp sweetness, tempered with herbal notes, mild pepperiness, mild sourness from the yeast. Awesome introduction for me in the world of Saison.

TAP at Delirium cafe Brussels. Shared with Mathieu87. APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, small unstable white head. NOSE: hoppy, citrus, fruity, fresh. TASTE: hoppy, bitterness which was not expected when just sniffing the beer, but it’s not too much, little dry, quite fruity, some tobacco in the mouth
