3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ DDC (Montréal). Clear golden with a small white head and light lacing. Aroma is mostly of buckwheat along with honeyed malt and cereals. Taste is slightly sweet and about the same as aroma. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Slightly dry mouthfeel. This is more of a Golden Ale with strong buckwheat presence than a Saison... no Saison character at all here. I was strongly disappointed, especially considering the good ratings.

On tap at the brewpub. Hazy blond body with a thin, lasting creamy/foamy head. Fresh malty/hoppy aroma with grainy, flowery, and herbal hints. Its nice hoppy taste carries buckwheat, citrusy, and herbal notes. Ends with a good bitter/herbal finish. Enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Dieu du Ciel. Poured a nice golden hue with a gel-like haziness throughout; thin and dense whitish head gave way to spotty lacing around the glass. Light floral and farmyard notes in the aroma as can be expected for a saison. Solid grainy profile accented with peppery and crisp hop character following into the finish. Only slightly dry in the finish with a smooth and slick mouthfeel; goes down quite easily. I liked it, though Dieu du Ciel has many other offerings which exceed this.
