asheft (2700) - 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.

TAP at Delirium cafe Brussels. Shared with Mathieu87. APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, small unstable white head. NOSE: hoppy, citrus, fruity, fresh. TASTE: hoppy, bitterness which was not expected when just sniffing the beer, but it’s not too much, little dry, quite fruity, some tobacco in the mouth

Quevillon (2648) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 26, 2012
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!

northropfrye (2600) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 28, 2013
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.

Metalchopz (2595) - 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.

Gription79 (2567) - 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.

radiomgb (2481) - 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.
