deyholla (6486) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 7, 2012
On tap. Pours a hazy amber gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has sweet grains and citrus up front with a nice complexity added by the backing rye and Belgian yeast. Flavor begins with sweet citrus and grains with a hint of flora and backed by rye and Belgian yeast.

rejtable (1223) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2012
Pours orange with a big foamy head that fades to a nice light off-white covering with lots of lacing. Nose is big floral with some grapefruit as well. Mouth has orange, maybe some lemon and then a little bit of a spicy finish. Some sour in the middle as well. Light-ish body with strong carbonation.

BeerGolem (659) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 10, 2012
Bottle 750 ml Pours hazy amber with medium white head. Aroma: fruits, bubblegum, belgian yeast, rye, hops.Taste: some spices, fruits, malts, slight sweetness, sourness, slight bitter finish. Complex and well balanced. Oily texture. Some acidity. This one is very enjoyable, but not totally on style. A little heavy for a saison.

tom10101 (2615) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2012
Bottle 750 ml. Hazy golden/orange with a small fully lasting white head and fair lacing. Aroma of belgian yeast, bubblegum and fruits. Flavor is medium sweet with spices, fruits, citrus and malt. Slight bitter finish. Mouthfeel is oily and acidic. Medium to full body. Interesting Saison and really enjoyable but medium drinkability due to sourness and heavy body.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 22, 2011
Dégustée en fût au Vices & Versa à Montréal. De couleur orange-dorée et voilée. Nez de grains de céréales sucrées, moyen de pain de seigle, léger de houblon herbeux aux notes florales et léger de levures fruitées (agrumes, léger d’abricots avec des traces de bananes) aux petites notes épicées. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture moyennement crémeuse. Moyen goût de levures fruitées (agrumes, traces d’abricots et de bananes) aux notes épicées (clou de girofle, traces de poivre) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de grains de céréales sucrées avec un moyen goût de pain de seigle (notes asséchantes) ainsi que des traces de biscuits puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère-moyenne amertume de houblon herbeux (herbes mouillées) aux faibles notes florales. Post-goût moyen et moyennement sec, moyen-léger amer de houblon herbeux avec des notes fruitées (zest d’agrumes) et des traces de blé. (printemps 2007)

GarnotingPete (771) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 24, 2011
Bière ambrée et voilée sur dépôt de levure et coiffée d’un voluptueux col mousseux de couleur crème. Des arômes fruités d’ananas, de pommes vertes avec un filet d’alcool. Très légèrement amère avec une touche de sucre résiduelle. Elle est rafraichissante, tout en offrant un corps bien rond, velouté. Elle se termine longuement, sur un bouquet d’arômes.

manuchampions (1235) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2011
750ml bottle from trade. Exploded on opening, fountain of beer everywhere, probably 20% or more lost. Too bad, smells amazing. This was after more than 4 days of sitting in my cellar restfully. Ah well. What’s left pours a hazy medium gold, high carbonation (duh) with an ample cream head. Aroma is all over the room but in the glass it’s banana, light clove, rich honey sweetness, mild yeast, some bubblegum. Taste is rusty metallic in the first hit. Too bad, the other flavours of clove, banana, honey and gum get overwhelmed by this metal taste that just won’t go away. The underlying beer is quite lovely and perhaps less like a saison than like a Belgian Ale. Finish is slightly boozy, yeast mixed with gum and banana with that annoying metallic note still along for the ride. Damn, if it weren’t for the explosion and the metal I think I would rate this a fair bit higher.

bu11zeye (11933) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2011
(Draught) Pours a lightly hazy golden body with a small white head. Aroma of herbs, banana, florals, and grass. Flavor of canned pineapple, herbs, grass, banana, coriander, light pepper, bread, and earthiness.
