Rastacouere (6119) - 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.

Yeast bomb saison with tons of fruity esters. Pear banana and melon with some dirty bready yeasty malts. I dig it.

From 750 ml bottle. Sparkling hazy yellow colour. Strong Belgian yeasts in the nose. Fruity banana, orange and clove notes. Dry in the mouth. First you taste citrus, orange and a hint of banana along with yeasty notes. Then comes a dry, medium bitter, grassy finish. Great mouthfeel and high carbonation! Perfect Saison!

bottle, awesome saison, lots of flavors, high complexity and nothing disjointed, all the flavors work very well together, lots of fruity notes and some grassy bitterness

vadie (619) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 18, 2014
Jaune brillant avec une grande mousse blanche. L’arôme fruité avec un très peu d’épices. Le goût est du levure fruité avec un peu d’amertume. C’est un peu acerbe dans la finale.

Aroma is nice floral yeast and sweet malts. Slightly earthy yeast and hop contributions. Taste is avery sweet maltiness and well balanced bitterness thst has some citrus and slight tarty character. Appearance is an amazingly well retained silk head that retained fabulously. Body is a hazy gold.
