Gription79 (2612) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Poured from a 750ml bottle, thanks to Doug. Lemon rind, dusty, earthy, spicy, rustic, this is a very nice saison. Very high carbonation.

Metalchopz (2606) - 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.

radiomgb (2504) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2012
Golden yellow in colour with a long lasting white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is generously spiced, orange peels and some lemon, pepper, herbal. The flavour is herbal, lots of citrus, bready, hoppy. Spicy mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, herbal, bitter.

Another excellent offering from Charlevoix. Very drinkable and thirst quenching.

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.
