pintbypint (2696) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 3, 2012
750ml green bottle. Golden colour, pouring very clear. Impressive dense white foam is clingy and long lasting. Nose has sweetish orange and some lemon peel, grass notes build and spiciness emerges halfway through the bottle. Taste has citrusy fruitness, some floral notes, bready malt, light grassy hop taste and some yeast at the end. Pleasant bitterness with herbal/grassy notes, medium hoppy aftertaste, mild spice. Medium body, lots of carbonation. Well executed.

Damico (2680) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Pours orange, not really clear, with brighter white head and some lacing. The aroma is sweet, pleasant, with some subtle toffee and grassy notes. The flavor is sweet, smooth, and a bit of grassy saison yeast with almost vanilla notes, as Steve had suggested I got them right away! Pretty nice for a saison from Canada!

asheft (2549) - 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.

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!

Metalchopz (2402) - 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.
