Draught @ Beer Revolution, Calgary.
Lovely slightly sour dry and bitter Saison. Golden, hazy yellow. Head fades quickly. Ticks all the boxes and clears the palette. Just a small one though...

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2012 July 29, 2012 - Toronto Festival Of Beers - draught at the Keep Six tent. Bright, clear, refractive and slightly oily gold with an average frothy fizzy white head (4-). Spicy classic saison aroma - fruity but not sweet, dry yeast - really nice (almost 8). Taste - pear, apricot, a little alcohol - but funkier, quite a nice bit of lemon and acidity. Average body, low-level carbonation, finishes reasonably quickly, slightly dry and acidic. Damned good beer.

Bouteille 750ml. Belle couleur blond claire. Mousse blanche tenant bien. Bel arôme de menthe, poivre (léger) et malt grillé. Au goût, sec, piquante et très rafraichissante. Bel équilibre et bien réussit. Une autre belle réussite de la brasserie de Charlevoix.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle shared by Drew. Thanks, man! Pours a richer golden hue, a touch of darkness, some good glow with some nice carbonation. Frothy whitish head stays as a firm layer, laces ok. Aromas are firmly dry and gentle yeast, some bread, dough. Touches of apple, mellow spice, funk and florals. Initial is mellow bodied, some mellow bready and grainy malts, firm dryness and richer carbonation on the palate. Touches of florals, earth, apples and gentle pear. Middle is dry, crisp carbonation. Touches of spice, mellow sweetness as the beer remains quite dry overall. Finish is dry, a gentle spice, lively carbonation, and gentle tart lightly sweet fruit. Nice.

Bottle thanks to Drewbeerme. Pours a lightly hazed gold with a fluffy white head. Nose is spicy pepper, vanilla and faint citrus. Pilsner malt and herbal hops. On tasting, it is dry overall with a vanilla tinged sweetness. Light tart note and soft. Malt forward, balanced soft bitterness. Pretty nice and different.
