Visuel: D’un blond ensoleillé, cette Saison est voilée par sa levure en suspens. Une effervescence fine, mais rapide, nous offre un col blanc aux bulles hétérogènes. La mousse s’amoindrira en un anneau épais, laissant une petite dentelle derrière elle. Arômes: Au nez, les levures Saison baignent au travers d’un bouquet fruité. Du pamplemousse rose et de la nectarine croquante sont soutenus par des notes épicées et quelque peu sauvages. Saveurs: En bouche, les notes «fermières» se démarquent davantage. Celles-ci sont accompagnées d’une amertume prononcée au profil aromatique purement fruité. Un clin d’œil éphémère malté équilibre le produit avant de laisser toute la place à l’amertume suivant une finale sèche. Texture: La Saison du Pinacle est une blonde amère au corps ronduleux. Son effervescence est picotante.

Ernest (7286) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 27, 2016
Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy/creamy, off-white, fully lasting. Body is hazy medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (melon, kiwi, flowers, grapefruit), lightly to moderately yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of fruit cocktail / fruit cup. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. The sourness is a bit much for me, but the fruity hop aroma is pleasant. None of the usual icky odors from Simcoe or Citra either, so that’s a relief. Super duper appearance too. Doesn’t strike me as terribly saison-ish, but it’s a nice Belgian-style brewski. Thanks Mike!

Lightly hazed gold with a permanent white head. Intense ester and hop-driven aroma manifests as melon, lime, herbs/lavender, papaya, bubble gum; malt is shown as faint hay and honey, and yeast is lightly phenolic (pepper, minerals) and seems to have an indescribable tutti-frutti quality, something I find in some brettanomyces strains but here it comes from (my guess) ester and hop. Such an intoxicating aroma, as it warms there are notes of honeysuckle and dried herbs à la French Strisselspalt, and nothing at all to make me guess Citra or Simcoe (no pee, burnt pineapple, garlic, onion, or resin). In the mouth it’s rich, sweet, savory, supple, a little salty, viscous without being weighty. Invigorating hop acids and a dusty touch of yeast do well against the sugar and fruit qualities, and the natural carbonation is silky-soft from flawless bottle conditioning. It’s an absurdly long and bitter finish but the hop use is a thing of beauty, and the texture and flavor balance are dialed-in. A stunning hoppy Belgian beer that speaks to De la Senne, De Ranke, and Thiriez.

s_r (125) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 5, 2016
Robe jaune avec une belle mousse blanche. Au nez, c’est agrume et herbeux. Et ça se retrouve en bouche, avec une amertume résineuse qui domine la gorgée. Rafraichissante et avec du goût, excellente saison.

BeerandBlues2 (12056) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 25, 2016
Bottle from kbudd19, thanks Kevin. Pours cloudy dark yellow with a large, frothy white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is heavy, fragrant floral, herbal, citrus and pine hops with intermingled notes of Brettanomyces, and medium cracker malt character. The hops throw off rose, white grapefruit and light dill notes. Flavor is moderate citrus, herbal, grassy and dank hops and bitterness, medium cracker malt, earthy Brettanomyces and a dry finish. Light body and moderate carbonation.
