saison more than farmhouse. Ageing helped. Very good tasty drinking saison.Yellow body and big foam. Smooth.

MartinT (8351) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 24, 2013
My Bottom Line:
A dollop of honey swiftly moves into wheat, light wilderness and green hop bitterness in this engaging quencher.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the clear blond.
-Mouthfeel is dry and polished.
-Drinkability is through the roof.
-This is actually reminiscent of Trou du Diable beers mouthfeel-wise and also in the delicate complexity which resides in the flavor profile.
-Looking forward to having bottles of this at home!

jercraigs (8294) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2014 2014-01-21.Crisp yellow body with a large foamy white head. 3++ Aroma is yeasty and lightly flowery, reminds me of Unibroue but I can’t put my finger on why. Flavour is pleasant, pale malt, dry floral hops, good amount of bitterness, relatively bitter. Average bodied palate, good amount of carbonation. Not super complex but quite quaffable. Enjoyable.

Ferris (6893) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 10, 2013
Bottle - Lemongrass, honey, wheat and yeast. Clear yellow with a rich bubbly white head. Vey mellow wheat, honey and maybe a bit of yeast. A bit to subtle for me.

[My bottle (750ml) shared with HogTownHarry, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o Glouglouburp] Pours a hazy bubbly gold with a huge long-lasting fluffy white head. Aroma is yeasty along with herbs & spices, light grassy hops, lemon and a hint of honey. Nice flavour, citrusy, yeasty and herbal along with a good amount of spices in the dry finish. Medium bodied. Really tasty, a very good Saison.
