GuillaumeCL (344) - Toronto, Ontario, - FEB 15, 2013
Pours a hazy dark yellow-brown with a small amount of white head that lingers for a while. Smell is fairly sweet, with some vanilla, some spice, and maybe a hint of funk. Palate is medium bodied with good carbonation. Taste is a bit weird, this is much more of a tripel than a belgian saison. Quite sweet at first then follows with a bit of bitter and a bit of sour, the aftertaste is slightly better and balanced with sweetness. Interesting overall, but not really what I think when I hear "rye saison."

750ml bottle shared with brother in law. Aroma: rye, cereals, lemon, spices and a tiny bit wild. App: hazy golden orange with lots of unappealing particules in suspension. Taste and palate: medium body, lively carbonation, light dry bitter finish. Overall: Not like all those wild and brett out there these days but q good representation of the style. Good.

Bière orangée brunâtre, voilée avec particules en suspension bien visibles, effervescence faible, et surmontée d’un col plutôt étroit mais tout de même assez dense, collant et persistant. Arômes de pain frais et de grain, léger malt mielleux, petite acidité citronnée, phénols épicés (clou de girofle, poivre…) qui tombent malheureusement un peu dans l’excessif (aseptisant, aspirine…). Effluves également quelque peu herbacé (houblon ou phénols?). Aussi, odeurs peu agréables qui tendent vers la sueur et le composé sulfurique. Nez peu agréable, complexité et intensité plutôt moyennes. En bouche, pétillement faible sur la langue, onctuosité intéressante au palais, beaux moelleux et velouté, probablement un bel apport du seigle. Au goût, pain frais, grain, léger miel, acidité citronné, beaucoup d’esters fruités (banane, poire…) et de phénols épicés (clou de girofle, eucalyptus, poivre…). Ces esters et phénols sont franchement à la limite de l’excessif, ç’en est quelque peu désagréable… La fin de bouche apporte un houblon herbacé, en route vers une finale à l’amertume modérément élevée. Bière heureusement plus intense en bouche par rapport au nez, mais intégration difficile des différentes saveurs et complexité un peu faible. Je suspecte une bouteille quelque peu problématique! (Embouteillée en août 2015). Dégustation correcte, sans plus…

TET (2254) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JUL 11, 2015
A good-looking beer, a slightly orange and dark yellow, a head is very big and blond. Aroma has fruitness of perries, lemon, some flowers, hint of dry earthyness. Taste is quite dry, some grain, fruitness, spicyness and earthyness, also some bitterness. Medium bodied, fresh as a good saison have to be. Good and balanced beer, also complex.

On tap @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels - BE. Color: clear blond beer with small carbonation and small white foam. Smell: nice grain, rye notes and well balanced with grassy sour notes. Very nice! :). Taste: as the nose the balance is really amazing. Domination of the grain with a good expression of the sour notes. Finish as floral. Aftertaste: rye and sour. Saison finish.

Ferris (8940) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2015
Bottle - Light peel, citrus and some weird meaty notes. Cloudy gold with a nice rich white head. That same odd meaty taste, with some citrus and a touch of peel. Not to my taste.
