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

GregClow (2816) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 11, 2008
Draught (6 oz. sample) at Vices et Versa, Montreal. Hazy golden colour. Lovely aroma of herbs, apricot, and an odd hint of whiskey - probably from the rye. Flavour is quite herbal as well, with notes of orange and lemon, a faint yeasty funkiness, and a hint of pepper in the finish. Very nice!

blankboy (5799) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2008
Draught at Vices & Versa. Pours a hazy, bubbly yellow-gold with an average size diminishing white head. Lovely aroma with lots of fruit, spices and light floral hops. Flavour’s quite floral, fruity, spicy and with a light bitterness. Medium bodied. A unique and enjoyable take on the style.

puzzl (3240) - 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.

Glass at brewery. Thick creamy white head. Big funky scent. Drinkable pepper and light lemon. Aftertaste is almost mushroom and a bit buttery.

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.

GarnotingPete (740) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 24, 2011
Bière ambrée et voilée sur dépôt de levure et coiffée d’un voluptueux col mousseux de couleur crème. Des arômes fruités d’ananas, de pommes vertes avec un filet d’alcool. Très légèrement amère avec une touche de sucre résiduelle. Elle est rafraichissante, tout en offrant un corps bien rond, velouté. Elle se termine longuement, sur un bouquet d’arômes.

tom10101 (2218) - 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.

solidfunk (3009) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Another good saison. Past month started off with a series of bad Ontario saisons and finished with trying some great Quebec stuff. Smells fruity, fermented orange juice. Wild yeast. Pours cloudy blond. Taste has some tartness. Bottle from Peluso.
