This beer is our version of a strong palish Belgian Saison. We have chosen to give this beer a pale and light profile and let the yeast display its full spicy flavors. We have also added some coriander for more complexity. This will develop some tartness given the time.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, - AUG 12, 2012
Cloudy yellow pour with a medium white head. Pleasant aroma of lemon, yeast and coriander. Good flavor of lemon, coriander and yeast with a mild bitter finish. This saison is reasonnably dry. The body is light to medium with a slightly creamy texture and lively carbonation. This is not a great saison by all means, but it’s a pleasant thirst quencher.

sebletitje (7134) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 11, 2015
Bouteille 50cl, batch#798, BB 20/04/2016. Dorée, col fin blanc. Arôme au bouquet fruité et houblonné avec un rétro de levure dont qcq esters belges. Retrouve de bons houblons nobles sur un léger épicé, malt pils. Palais est malté, levure belge avec ici encore des notes esters rappelant la banane et abricot. Houblonné noble qui ajoute une faible touche fruitée. ok et correcte dans une lignée très belge.

asimeow (166) - Sandsli, NORWAY - DEC 21, 2014
0,5l bottle. Cloudy golden, white scattery head. Smells and tastestoo much of wheat malts, though. Not a big fan of wheat in beer, so this will never be a winner for me.

metalspice (194) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - NOV 21, 2014
Lyst og grumsete med lavt, hvitt skum. Herlig duft med nyslått gress og banan. Frisk smak med frukt og lett krydret. Over gjennomsnittlig karbonisert. Drukket til sesongens første lutefisk, passet perfekt, mye bedre enn mørke juleøl som man har prøvd tidligere.
