willblake (2645) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - AUG 14, 2010
20100814 tap at max’s. Aroma is white glue, dirty sock, apple, American cheese. Weird weird stuff. Plum and pale cherry. No idea how to assess this one, frankly. Flavor has light sweetness and good though surprising acidity. Sweet-tart. Meh, I’m not loving it.

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.

rudolf (2340) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 26, 2008
Tap @ Cask Days. Very hazy golden yellow, soft but resilient white head. Nose is tons of yeast, bright fruits, banana, clove, apple skins - a very aggressive nose. Flavor is bright apple skin, light must, eyast, lemony banana. Earthy fruit in the finish. Very nice and verrrry aggressive.

cfrancis (2250) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2012
Pours a cloudy light straw yellow with a small white top. Aroma is spicy rye, yeast, a little hop. Taste is a nice warming dry, spicy rye, yeast and a great bready malt profile. Slight hop bitterness in the aftertaste.

Gription79 (2228) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Poured from a 750ml bottle. This is a very yeast driven saison. Fruity, banana, some rustic yeasty farmhouse qualities. A good beer, but not that great of a saison.

radiomgb (2200) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 11, 2009
Clear golden orange in colour with a thin white coloured head, light lacing. The aroma was of oranges, lemons, some spice, bread and yeast. The flavour has some grapefruit, moderate bitterness, lots of citrus, yeast, must and a bit of brett. Lightly bitter mouthfeel, medium body, medium/high carbonation. Finishes bitter, with yeast and spice.

This didn’t have as much grapefruit as the Station 10 that I just had but was a bit more intense in the flavour. Moderate amounts of alcohol at times, quite refreshing.

Draught at Mondial 2008, Montreal, Quebec.
Sampled on May 29, 2008.

matt7215 (2151) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 20, 2008
on tap at volo cask days 2008. perfect hazy deep golden with a big fluffy white head. aromas are fruit esters with some saison funk and yeast. the flavour are of big full bodied saison. esters, spice, some sourness and yeast. the hops are there throughout but really shine on the finish. a very good saison and beers like this are why saisons are one of my new favourite styles.
