Boutip (5737) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 12, 2010
Bottle: Poured a cloudy dirty beige color ale with a huge light dirty brown color head with great retention and some very good lacing. Aroma of funk and farmyard is quite intense with some light apricot and some light spices. Taste is quite complex to describe though yeast is properly the main component that produces a very funky taste with light fruit notes of apricot and candy. Body is full with limited filtration and great carbonation. Very well brewed and somewhat disappointed that I can’t find this more easily.

JulienHuxley (5500) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 21, 2010
On tap at brewpub’s anniversary. Hazy yellow pour, lots of frothy white head. Aroma is quite tart and lemony, a bit of grain and saison yeast. Taste is lemony, some alcohol quite straightforward. Palate is a little slick for the style, I was expecting more from this beer.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 1, 2009
Tap at Bond (1 block from DDC). Pours a slightly hazy deep golden with yeast or hop particles floating around- big lasting white head and solid lace. Aroma is earthy, musty, herbal hops, and good fresh bready malts and some cracker hints. Hoppy flavor with slight woodsy hint, herbal, and good bready light carapils anda drying easy going finish. Very nice easy drinking saison/belgian ale- the typical saison yeast character isnt really found here, but the beer is still real nice.

mansquito (5027) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 29, 2013
The Sampler, Brooklyn ($15): Pours orange with a sea foam head. Aroma is tropical fruit and a bit of funk, but it ain’t as saisonesque as many other saisons. Taste is mildly bitter, with a hoppiness that carries over to the aftertaste. A little on the dry side. Somewhat sweet around the middle. Nothing all too impressive.

tom10101 (4981) - 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.

presario (4902) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 17, 2009
Glass at brewery. Thick creamy white head. Big funky scent. Drinkable pepper and light lemon. Aftertaste is almost mushroom and a bit buttery.

SlovakSniper (4811) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2011
Bouteille. Le liquide a une robe légèrement orangée et finement voilée. La mousse blanche cassée a une bonne rétention. Au nez, les quelques traces de levure rustre sont rapidement obnubilées par des effluves de pêches, d’oranges et d’épices. Les céréales de seigle rejoignent des parfums de banane qui s’affirment avec allégresse. Les houblons sont en fleurs et sont sucrées. Bouquet intéressant. Le goût est frais, je dirais même très frais avec des saveurs fortement fruitées et épicées et légèrement mielleuses. Les saveurs des houblons sont aussi en fleurs et manifestent une amertume fantomatique. En bouche, le liquide a une tenue somme toute solide avec une effervescence juste et une texture crémeuse. La finale me semble maltée, fruitée et épicée, voire même salée avec une touche franchement métallique.
