This Belgian-style farmhouse ale was traditionally brewed to satisfy thirsty farm workers during late summer harvest. With a dominating fruity character, our saison has light malt flavour and is moderately hopped. Whether youíve been out plowing fields or crunching numbers in a cubicle, itís a refreshing reward for a hard dayís work. Try it on its own or paired with Thai curried mussels.

Spices are strong in the nose over a sweet malt base with plenty of fruity esters. Hazy straw coloured body is topped by a generous fine bubbled white head that lasts well and leaves some lace. Spices and fruity esters are strong also in the flavour. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Perhaps not entirely traditional but definitely quite drinkable. Bottle purchased at the tap room in September 2012.

UXO (1524) - CANADA - JUL 4, 2016
Appearance: hazy pale straw, two fingers of rocky white head, excellent retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: apples, lemon, pale malt, light barnyard funk. (6/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, mild bitter, mild tart. (7/10) Medium-light body, moderate carbonation, off-dry lightly funky finish. (3/5) A middle-of-the-road saison. A bit too sweet and a bit too brown apple-y for my preferences. Could stand to be a fair bit dryer, crisper, and cleaner. (13/20)

Oakes (15805) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 4, 2016
The abv went from 6.5 to 6.3, but the IBUs stayed the same. But the brewer is different so how similar this is to the 2014 version I donít know. Hazy light amber. Thin head. Spicy, light biscuity malts, dryish, light phenols, moderate bitterness. Not somethings Iíd buy ahead of Dupont but good.

DuffMan (9593) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle. HAzy deep golden yellow with a very thick and retentive white head. Aroma is heavy estery yeast with soft bready malts. Soft body of sweet pale malts and spicy estery yeast. This wasnít bad, but lacked subtle character. Kind of like a paint-by-numbers saison, if that makes sense.

fiulijn (19347) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 10, 2013
Bottle from Central City Liquors, Surrey
Limited release 2012

Blond-golden color, with medium sized head. In the aroma there is some sugar, light vegetables, very light rubber. The carbonation is high, and the mouthfeel is smooth; the malt flavor is anonymous, sweetish; instead of the spicy yeasty character of a Saison (and astringency sometimes), there is more of an herbal touch, with rosemary and mint, and again an impression of stewed cabbage; correct bitterness.
One more unachieved American Saison.
