FatPhil (9359) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 19, 2014
750ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec)
Pale gold, small head. Stinky saison aroma, vegetal, spicy, pungent. Sweet saisony taste, some honey. Not so good. Not refreshing at all. Yet another following-the-fashion saison fail.

adnielsen (9115) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a hazy golden orange appearance with a cream colored head. Spicy herbal yeasty, quite rustic, peppercorn, banana, lemon aroma. Lightly tart, peppery/chewy/bready yeasty, moderately dry, dull lemon citrusy flavor. A lot of dry, grassy, herbal notes. Fun to drink.

Sammy (8663) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2011 Modiale 2007. A little white head on cloudy orange. Appealing aroma of spice and yeast. Taste is great, fortified with rye, a good saison in a great style. Sourness in the finish. Good medium plus mouthfee. Lace in the glass. Refreshing. Had it again in 2008 and was not as enticing. Had it by bottle in 2011 and very ordinary farmhouse.

jtclockwork (8445) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Bottle. Pours orange gold with bone white head. Nose and taste of peach bread, yeast, light spicy malt, lemongrass, rye and alcohol soaked orange peel. Medium body.

3fourths (8042) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Bottle. Effervescent and lightly hazed honey-colored body with a fine white head. Very Dupont-like nose. Citrus fruit, sugar / sugar cookie, peppercorns and phenols. Hoppier and sharper and closer to the recent Cuvée dry hopped batch. There’s a difficult to identify aroma that’s something like orange juice pulp, aromatic hop cones and bathsoap... it really seems to be the key to why the aroma works so well here. Medium body with soft and creamy carbonation, lots of tart, dried fruits, a silky, creamy but frothy and filling yeast character with natural carbonation to give it softness. Astonishing tartness and dryness in a beer that seemingly smells sugary and fruity. Crisp, quenching acid, medium+ bitterness, low sweetness, good acid, quaffable and flavorful. Mild hints of alcohol emerge after it breathes and warms.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2013 2013-05-31. Hazy golden orange body with a nice white head and lace. Aroma is lightly grainy, pale malt, light grains, light sourness. 7+ Flavour is quite pleasant, moderate sourness, pale malt. 7+ Average bodied palate, pleasantly effervescent carbonation. 3+ Pretty nice. 7/4/7/3/15-16 3.7 Bottle at Mondial de la Biere 2013, Montreal

2008-05-31. Crisp golden body with a nice foamy off-white head. (3+) Aroma is mild, light alcohol kissed grass, hops. (6+) Pleasant zippy bitterness alludes to lemons, mild grass, pale malt. More lemon and grass in the finish lingers pleasantly. (7+) Smooth average palate suits the beer. Decent but not my favorite of their offerings. 6/4/7/3/15 - 3.5 On tap, Mondial, Montreal, 4T

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 2, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2012 My Bottom Line:
Doughy yeast, orangey fruitiness, bready cereals and a tender spicy, herbal hop personality thrive within the cushy rye-infused mouthfeel.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A thick layer of foam laces generously atop the cloudy orange.
-The body’s creaminess is a bit overdone to achieve authenticity within its broad style, but it gives this brew a remarkable signature.
-From the nose to the aftertaste, everything exudes freshness.
-The hoppy finish sometimes personifies wet leaves.
-This is getting better and better; the bottle conditioning does wonders for the mouthfeel too.

Bottle, on tap at Vices et Versa and at Loup Rouge.

crossovert (7410) - Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Tangy and tart yet sweet and yet unbalanced. A pretty messy beer, the yeast is there too adding sligth phenolics. Messy.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
DuffMan (6752) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle, shared with Robbie. Very hazy straw yellow, lively white head. Very estery nose and palate, lacking significant hops, but this bottle may be old. Lightly spicy, chalky mouthfeel, dry finish. Not foul, but nothing stands out here.
