Rastacouere (6159) - Montreal, Quebec, - JUN 11, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2013 Beautiful white tower above the just as beautiful cloudy blonde pour. Fragrant, almost perfumey nose where cracker-like malts are quickly taken over by the intensely yeasty aromas that bring a broad fruit array, white dough and an intricate spicy complexity that bears more than a little of the Charlevoix house character (kinda lemony coriander-cinnamon notes surrounded by sweetish pie dough). In mouth, the larger than average bubbles feel authentic, if perhaps not as agressive than in many Belgian examples. The malt character is full, procuring a very forward breadiness that feels pastry-like and makes this Saison thicker than average, but agreeably so and still drinkable a plenty. It is accompanied by a serious hoppiness at the same time, adding citrusy notes and a limited, balanced bitterness that adds to the dryness perception when paired with the carbonation. Curious how one sip calls for another. They must have nailed this one pretty well, it has kept the distinctive Charlevoix character while highlighting nicely the contributions of each ingredients and remaining very drinkable. And the price tag feels easy enough at comfortably less than 10$ per 750 ml. That’s actually something I’ll buy regularly this Summer. A welcome addition to the already neat DV line.

This bear is great for a hot day. With it blond color and its sweet refreshing taste, its great for any occasions. A light taste of sugar with a small punch of bitterness, its well balanced. Cheers!

Stephane_Houle (200) - - MAY 31, 2015
Apparence: D?une couleur jaune dorée opaque, elle est coiffée d?une bonne mousse d?une bonne durée. Effervescence difficile à évaluer, mais semble légère. Arômes: Au nez, ce sont des arômes de malt frais. Aussi, il y a des notes d’agrumes et légèrement épicé (poivré). Saveurs: En bouche, c’est un corps moyen. Au goût, c’est un des flaveurs de malt avec des notes d’agrumes. Finale moyenne, avec une légère effervescence et une légère amertume. Commentaires: Wow! Quelle belle saison. Un bel équilibre entre la céréale, les agrumes et les épices. Fiche technique Style: Saison Format: 750 ml Taux d?alcool : 6% IBU: 35

Firstly, I’d like to note I bought this bottle in QC. Is drastically fresher than if I’d waited for it to come to Alberta (and a third of the price). It pours a shade of gold with a tight, billowing head that gradually comes down to a nice cap. The nose shows banana and hay, both of which come through in the taste backed up by a spiced characteristic, transitioning well into a moderately low bitterness English hop. Despite a sweet honeyed flavor in the finish, it comes out off-dry by the end. The body is very crisp, and surprisingly clean for a saison. A high carbonation profile might be helping in that, but is no less pleasant for it.
