Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2012
"Saint Reserve Saison". Pale and hazy with a peppery, yeasty aroma. A bit thin but with a fair bit of spice and hop dryness. Not bad.

Sammy (8405) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2012
Another masterful contribution to their Belgian premium series. Fresh smelling aroma draws me in. Lemon, balsam, complex. Dry finish. Very good drinkability. Vast head on medium cloudy yellow body.

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2012
Tap at Toronto Fest of Beer. Pale golden pour. The nose is a little bit spicy and peppery. Some sweet pale malt and a little bit of soft honeyed sweetness. A little bit of lightly fruity flavour. A little bit sweet and chewy. It’s okay - but not great. Fairly honeyed.

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2012 My Bottom Line :
This intricate Saison’s display of flavors wows at every sip, showing off spicy hops, doughy yeast, orangey fruitiness and bready malts coalescing into a herbal hop finish awash in fluffy natural effervescence.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A fluffy head of foam settles atop the cloudy golden.
-This is intelligently spiced.
-Drinkability is sky high, as is authenticity.
-Citrusy angles appear here and there, and herbal hop bitterness develops with every sip. Perfect dosage, imho.
-This is not the kind of Saison that will explode onto your palate with tons of spices or hops; it is a nicely balanced one with an authentic flavor profile and mouthfeel which is meant to be quenching. Great job, Charlevoix!
