Hazy yellow, thick fluffy white head, aroma is lemons and crackery malt. Fruity taste more lemons, dry peppery finish some light Brett funk. Medium body high carbonation. Great saison!

MartinT (8351) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2014 My Bottom Line:
This authentic Saison lays out citrusy fruitiness, delicate banana esters and persistent herbal hop bitterness in a dry, comfy, and very drinkable vehicle.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sizeable head of foam stays atop the misty straw gold.
-The mouthfeel is nicely dry and airy.
-Can’t say I would have detected the rye and oats if they hadn’t been on the label, but the spiciness is obvious once noted.
-The flavor profile is intricate yet rustic.

Bottles.

SlovakSniper (3634) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 11, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2015 Une petite robe dorée qui laisse transparaître un voile. Une petite tête blanche qui ne résiste pas. Un nez touché par une certaine rusticité. Des moments qui ne sont jamais sucrés. Des mouvements qui sont marqués par les herbes et par les épices. Je soupçonne le blé et la levure. Des saveurs contrôlées par des herbes amères. Une levure qui se dévoile en toute finesse. Des malts pâles qui sont tranquilles. Des détonations florales qui s’exécutent en amertume. Un fruité fantomatique. Une bouche légère, drôlement remuée par les bulles. Une finale amère conjuguée par les houblons et par les épices.// Une autre bouteille bue hier. Belle touche citronnée, levure dunhamienne, bretts, houblons vivants, extrême buvabilité, conditionnement sublime, très sèche. Une réflexion: pourquoi faire 5 heures de route pour aller chez Hill quand on a dans notre cour arrière les meilleurs exemples du style?

Bottle from Tom10101, thanks! Aroma is fairly phenolic with pepper, coriander and lemongrass. Moderate citrus note with some light pear and floral esters. Pours a slightly cloudy very pale yellow with a thick, pillowy white head that slowly recedes but has fairly good retention. Faint legs with moderate esters. Flavor has a light sweetness with a nice citrus note upfront. Some light graininess and oat flavor. Medium light spice nor s of pepper and coriander; the spice is lighter than in the aroma. Hints of floral esters and medium pear note. Medium bitterness, but fairly smooth. Very faint floral hop flavor. The finish has a touch of lingering bitterness as well as a hint of pepper. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Water has a nice soft character to it and adds a nice dimension to the beer. Overall another very enjoyable Saison from our brothers to the north. The water quality reminds me of Hill Farmstead and the phenolics and esters are well balanced. I personally enjoy my saisons with a bit of funk, but this is a nice clean one.

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2012
Draught at Volo. Thick looking cloudy orange with a large and lasting fluffy beige head. Soft aroma, vague tree fruit and mild spice, a hint of alcohol and mineral funkiness. Taste - wow - malty, yes, but loaded with dried spice, yeast, and an almost chalky mineral character that I frigging loved. Thick, airy, dry, with no real aftertaste, just gooooood. Not for every - but it is for ME!

BiereLuc (1041) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2013
Bière pâle avec des arômes houblonnés, fruités et épicés. En bouche, l’équilibre est parfait entre les saveurs qu’on avait pressenties. La principale qualité de la Brasserie Dunham réside en son savoir-faire en ce qui a trait au dosage des houblons, peu importe le style qu’ils interprètent. J’avais adoré la version 341ml, mais je trouve que le format de 750ml va à merveille à cette bière de soif / de luxe / de bonheur. Une saison dangereusement rafraîchissante!

DuffMan (7500) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 19, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Lovely bright yellow body with a very lively head that demanded an incremental pour. Aroma is lightly funky with earthy and lemon peel notes. Crackery pale malts allow the delicate funky and yeasty notes to shine, some lemon peel, some peppery spice in the finish (I just noticed there is rye in here-- makes sense). A delicious quaffable saison.

Bottle with friends. Pours a golden liquid with medium white head. Smells Brett yeast. Taste is funky. Very tart mouthfeel. Well balanced and very drinkable.
