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

radiomgb (2225) - 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.

750ml bottle from Marche Omni in Gatineau, Quebec.
Opened on July 11, 2012.

Metalchopz (2210) - 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.

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.

Fred82 (2114) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 7, 2012
750ml bottle from Monde des Bières.
Appearance : Clear yellow with rocky white foamy head. Long head retention. Lots of lacing.
Aroma : Lots of saison yeast. Slightly rustic. Crisp floral noble hops. Light fruity notes. Chewy malts. Yeast signature is very present.
Taste : Noble hops with light citrusy notes. Quite yeasty with moderate spices. Finish slightly bitter with noble hops aroma and lots of yeast. Persistent yeast notes accompanied by the hops bitterness.
Palate : Carbonation is rather generous but not aggressive.
Overall : Very nice offering. Very elegant balance between the saison yeast and the noble hops. The yeasty notes could be tuned down a bit. Very drinkable and very refreshing. Reminds me a little bit of the Lupulus... but not as good.
