Lukaduke (2371) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 2, 2012
INFECTED.... Opened without any pop, poured a viscous pale golden color with no head. Aromas of sour petrol and rotten fruit. Sipped the same Yuck. Looks like pediococcus to me... hope to try another bottle soon and reassess. On to the station #55.

rudolf (2342) - 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.

Gription79 (2311) - 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.

Marheb (2298) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 16, 2013
Un nez levuré et poivré qui laisse passer des notes de céréales mielleux. En bouche c’est rond avec une certaine sécheresse incomplète teintée de verdure. Une touche métallique engourdie momentanément la langue. Bon, sans plus.

matt7215 (2227) - 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.

Fred82 (2115) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 23, 2010
On tap at brewpub
Appearance : Hazy amber with a medium white creamy head. Lots of lacing.
Aroma : Woody ans acidic. Slightly lactic. Oak sourness.
Taste : Acidic, light woody. Light notes of rye. Quite fruity. Finish is acidic and dry. Finish is also a bit mineral. Carbonation really soft, almost flat.
Overall : Very nice looking. Great wood sourness. Nice wilderness and fruityness. This is not something I could drink more than one glass of because there is too much oak sourness and lactic notes. Carbonation was way too soft in my opinion but I’m pretty sure that it’s not that flat normally. The beer in general could also feel more polished.

VT (1666) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 2, 2012
750 ml bottle. Pours a yellowish straw with a resilient white head. Tastes like malt, wheat, pepper, coriander and cereals. Citrusy, bitter lemon finish. Medium bodied. Good, but not exceptional.

On tap, Vices et Versa. Pours opaque gold with a white head. Wheaty nose. Body has intense clove and wheat, with a spicy, herbal finish. Palate remains pleasingly buttery throughout. Solid beer, if not stylistically overlapping with Belgian Whites.
