Metalchopz (2832) - 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.

asheft (2825) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 19, 2013
Fresh fruit aroma with vinous white grape and some citrus in front of faint spicy noble hops. Almost clear gold under a lacy, lasting, white cover. Peppery phenolic up front in the flavor in front of pleasant fresh grapes and spicy, herbal hops. Woody bitterness is subtle. Effervescent high carbonation, light body, faintly sour finish.

Poured from a 750ml bottle, thanks to Doug. Lemon rind, dusty, earthy, spicy, rustic, this is a very nice saison. Very high carbonation.

750 ml bottle purchased at La Saucisserie BAM (La Saucisserie Ste-Rose) in Laval (Quebec) on June 23, 2012. Blonde straw, medium head. Barley aroma sweet and fruity, with hints of spice. Taste of barley and herbs sweet but dry, slightly bitter, mild but tasty. A pure delight of summer!

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!
