UPDATED: MAR 10, 2014 NOUVEAU SCORE Après ma totale déception j’ai regoutté cette bière et effectivement il y avait un problème avec la bouteille. Apparence beaucoup moins morte d’un jaune dorée avec beaucoup de mousse blanche. Nez plus vivant de céréales de miel et de quelques agrumes. C’est en bouche la plus grande différence, beaucoup plus de bulle et de corps sur beaucoup de céréales avec une tranche de miel et d’agrumes.Une bière nettement meilleure que la première! ANCIEN SCORE A voir les commentaires des autres personnes il y a eu logiquement un problème avec la bouteille que j’ai acheté sois a l’embouteillage ou au magasin que je l’ai acheter. Une bière d’un beau jaune légèrement opaque avec un décevant col blanc presque inexistant. Nez peu frais de céréales d’épices et de fruits. En bouche la bières est très ’’flat’’ ressemblant plus a une blanche bas de gamme, malgré tout ca j’ai pu analyser quelque saveur comme le miel, les céréales les épices belges. Je vais renoter cette biere si je lui regoute un jour mais pour l’instant c’est tres décevant, un 10$ dans les poubelles.

TheJester (1775) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2013
750 mL bottle acquired in teade with tom10101 - merci Tommy! Bottle says 5.2% Pale gold with a medium white head. Mild Belgian aroma. But this beer is incredibly flavourful for a 5.2% beer. It’s Belgian, but the grain mix brings a unique spice to this beer, and it has a lovely, dry finish.

Boutip (4637) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 20, 2013
Bottle: Poured a hazy dirty yellow color ale with a large foamy head with great retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of peppery yeast with some rustic malt and lightly sweet notes. Taste is also a superb mix of peppery yeast with some rustic malt notes and lightly sweet honey notes that are also perceptible. Rye malt are also noticeable and provide a bit of spicy/peppery notes. Body is full with medium carbonation. Incredibly well brewed with great level of drinkability.

Thanks Tom10101. Aroma has a medium pear and citrus aroma with moderate spice nots of coriander and pepper. Light graininess with a hint of honey. Slightly floral. Pours a fairly cloudy hay color with a fairly large pillowy white head. Really nice head retention leaving behind medium high lacing but no legs. Flavor is somewhat sweet with some light graininess and some honey upfront. Some light lemongrass along with citrus and grapes. Some low herbal spice along with coriander and pepper. Light bitterness along with a light noble hop character. Some lingering honey, spice and light tropical fruit esters in the finish with a medium low floral character. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied and fairly soft with a slight creaminess. Medium to medium high carbonation along with low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall a fairly enjoyable saison of a cleaner style. Nice blend of spices, phenolics, esters and malt and all done rather cleanly without one overpowering the other. I am fairly impressed with this beer and it delicate interplay of flavors. It also has a very nice mouthfeel to it with a soft but crisp nature.
