750 mL bottle. Pours straw yellow with a thick white head. Big yeasty aroma with apple, banana and spicy phenols; clove and allspice. Mild cotton candy sweetness, super smooth and very refreshing. A touch of earthy funk here as well as it warms up a little. Fine champagne like texture. A damn tasty saison, but I’m a sucker for the style.

Mainly belgian yeast, some clove, slight sourness, sweet smell. Looks nice, hazy yellow with long lasting white foamy head. Highly carbonated, very clean upfront, don’t get much till the carbonation dies down, belgian yeast mainly on the finish with a good amount of hop bitterness on the tongue and a hint of sourness. Medium bodied and very dry. Good and unique.

Metalchopz (2409) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2013
Found at Marché Omni. Pours a very slight hazy, light golden colour with a big creamy white head that lasts a very, very long time and chunks out foamy lacing. The smell at first reminds me of my first Unibroue experiences when they started. Spicy nose (peppery) with the Belgian Ale yeast, mild grass and citrus. Beautiful mouthfeel with just a little dryness in the finish, from the hop. Not overly bitter with a 35 IBU, which works well for this one. Very well-balanced taste of milder spices with the rest. The fruity aspect of a Saison are here, but come in and out as it breathes. Goes down very nicely and can be enjoyed any time of the year.

Bottle from Phil, Thanks! Clear golden with an enormous tight foaming head that fades to a pile of meringue, interesting. Aroma is citrus, and yeast, some spice. Taste is strong of pepper, some lemon and spice. Great beer for a summer day.

Thanks northropfrye for sharing. Pours a hazy yellow with tonnes of whipped cream like head. Sweet candy and pastry aromas. Flavours are sweet and citrus at first. Then hoppy and medicinal at the end. Nice stuff.

northropfrye (2325) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 28, 2013
Thanks, Tommy. Yellow-orange body with loads of white head that looks like meringue. Funky citrus lemon aroma. Taste is slightly citrus acidic, grapefruit, sweet malts, vanilla. Nice.

More details to come later as I didn’t take the time to write down notes while bathing in the sun and drinking this. It’s official that there will be (many) repeat over the course of summer!

BiereLuc (977) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 26, 2013
Dorée-orangée, limpide, avec un col de mousse moyen qui laisse une fine dentelle sur le bord du verre. Nez levuré avec une touche légèrement épicée. En bouche, la levure belge mène le bal avec des notes fruitées – teintées d’agrumes – et du bubble gum bien chewy. La finale est sèche, mais pas trop. Le dosage est exact et précieux dans cette bière. Voilà une saison, tout ce qu’il y a de plus traditionnel, qui ne devrait avoir aucun complexe vis-à-vis des meilleures en provenance de Belgique.

angrypirate06 (1387) - Texas, USA - APR 19, 2013
Bottle thanks to Blutt59. Yellow pour with a large foamy, quickly receding head. Aroma is strongly phenolic, peppery, lemon and straw. Flavor is pepper, phenols, lemon, esters as well. A lot going on here, a really nice saison. Lively carb and dry finish. Thanks Bob!

Bottle, thanks to pushkinwow in trade, clear golden pour, soft white foam, has a sweet chardonnay nose with grainy, fruity, yeasty, flavors. Nice wildflower and some spices, good solid finish
