Smell of roast and yeast. Black colour with brown head. Too much yeast in aroma. Non-pleasantly sweet, also bitter

radiomgb (2181) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 6, 2014
Deep brown in colour with a thin but long lasting beige head, excellent lacing. The aroma is of pepper, light spice, dark fruits, yeast and bread. The flavour is of chocolate, rye bread, malty, yeasty with some citrus tang, fruit. Lightly yeasty mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long and yeasty, good malt bite. A pretty nice dark saison, love the rye in this.

765ml bottle from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario.
Bottled on May 28, 2013.

puboflyons (2043) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 15, 2014
From the 2013 bottle dated 21/MAR/13. Gorgeous dark brown to near black pour with long lasting soft tan head. The aroma has some nice dark malts, yeast, light spice, and sour notes to it. Bold body. The taste is sweet and sour actually with the sour notes not too tart and not too off-putting.

Definitely the best saison that I’ve ever tasted. A little tart, and incredibly smooth.

andrewje41 (304) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Draft pour. Pours black with a cream head. I’ve never seen a saison like this before, and almost thought I was poured the wrong beer. Slightly sour fruit aroma. The is beer is so smooth. So so smooth. Really nice peppery flavor with some darker fruit. A little tart at first, with a mild roasted finish. I have nothing but good things to say about this beer. Another solid from these guys.

765 ml bottle from LCBO, dated 2013. Chestnut brown with tan head. Roasted malt on the nose with sweet cola, herbal (anise) and spicy notes. Taste has some anise or licorice notes, cola, cocoa, herbs. Easy drinking an enjoyable. Not much like any saison I’ve had, but a good beer no less.

Bottle. Black with a big khaki head. Yeasty, bread dough, light rye and molasses. Taste is mildly sweet with a yeasty flavor. Body is heavier with a foamy feel.
