puzzl (3252) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 15, 2008
Tap at Vices et Versa. Spicy, orange zest, black pepper and thick yeast aroma. The pour is orange, loosely filtered. A bit meaty, chewy as it warms, with nice spice and a definite bitter hop finish. Quite nice.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2011 au fût au vices et versa, belle bière ambrée, nez de seigle, d’épices très raffinée, en bouche les épices dominent, très agréable, finale longue et épicée. Version bouteille: le même agrément, belle mousse blanche, une pointe mordante, très agréable.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2008
On tap at Volo Cask Days 08. A sour/tart nose with a hint of yeast. Cloudy orange/golden with a minimal white head. Taste is sour fruit, yellow plums, white grapefruit and starfruit come to mind. Light bodied, very well balanced, complex, tart, dry and most refreshing. Terrific.

Eructoblaster (3082) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 23, 2013
Bottle - 750ml. Beautiful cloudy golden body with a thin white foamy head. Fresh, well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with yeasty and flowery hints. its sharp hoppy taste carries grainy, yeasty, and coriander notes. Ends with a sharp bitter/sour finish. Well done.

rederic (3049) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 3, 2007
On tap at the brewery, during their grand opening, Hazy amber-orange hue, with a very small beige head, yeasty dough, fruity nose of ripe apples, hint of nutmeg spiciness, a bit wheaty, with a subtle rye cereal note in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, fruity character of sultana, ripe apples, with a flowery hop accent, a nutmeg spiciness, an orangeish rye mouthfeel, leading towards a fruity, malty finish.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAY 27, 2009
Tap at Spuyten Duyvil: Cloudy golden with an off white dense film of head. The aroma has some underlying rich bready malts- lightly sweet mild apricot notes- dryish/chalky phenols. Thick creamy carbonation. The flavor mixes spicy phenols & fruit skin bitterness. Light apricot/softly sweet- light bread crust and preserves followed by a light noble peppery presence and residual spicy phenols to dry it out. A nice, dry Saison.

tom10101 (3011) - 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.

probstblueribbon (3008) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2008
500 ml bottle from brewery via Lubiere (merci!), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. Hand-written label. AP20/08.

App.: Cloudy medium-amber with a large off-white foam. Aroma: Much like a dubbel – some raisins, molasses, toffee, licorice; lots of bubblegum esters (too much, me thinks), minty, sweet-smelling with a slightly saison-esque funk; some yeast and bread dough. Palate: Medium+ body and very soft effervescence. Flav.: Much like the nose – thick, gooey malts, heavy-handed pink bubblegum, minty, a touch of funk, a bit nutty; off-dry, a bit tangy and a little bitter with a peachy aftertaste.

Perplexing – Dubbel meets Saison...Daison? Subbel? Not sure if I like the results of this experiment, particularly due to the bubblegum esters. Might retry.

Gorbalev (2943) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 13, 2008
On tap at Vices et Versa. Cloudy yellow, small white head. Really strong spice and floral aroma. Taste is very flavourful - tons of spice, more floral notes, medium to full bodied. A really satisfying fresh tasting saison.
