MartinT (8135) - 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.

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.

lefossoyeur (471) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 19, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2013 On tap at Vice & Versa, july 19. Slight haze on this golden-orange pour, with absolutely no head. Nose is funky, lactic, apples and barnyard. Medium body, almost totally flat, nice lemony flavors backed by some funkiness but it finishes a bit hollow and sweet. Something milky, lactic in the end. Not bad, but would have been really better with some carbonation. 31st august update : tap at Bieres & Saveurs, aged version. Wow, what a contrast with my previous rating. Nice funkyness with light brett presence, body is thinner, dryer, than previous sample. Super interesting bretty saison character. Loved this one with aging! Previous rating 3.2 , now, 3,9

GarnotingPete (777) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 24, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2014 Bière ambrée et voilée sur dépôt de levure et coiffée d’un voluptueux col mousseux de couleur crème. Des arômes floraux et légèrement résineux avec un filet d’alcool. Moyennement amère avec peu de sucre résiduelle. Elle est rafraichissante, tout en offrant un corps leger et une texture velouté. Elle se termine longuement, sur un bouquet d’arômes.

j12601 (6927) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 25, 2012
On tap at Hopfenstark during their anniversary party. Pours a hazy golden amber with a thin to medium sized white head. Soft floral yeast on the nose, spicy musk and toast. A little bit of esters. Medium bodied, sweet malt, floral notes and more yeast. Warm and spicy with a small amount of alcohol warming everything up. Finishes off with a long estery yeast note and a bit more spiciness. Very nice.

Earthy, yet the sweet overtones brought this delightful saison to a rare complexity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
