Tap at Vices et Versa MTL. Very tart and fruity, surprising, almost a Flemish sour. Tart apricot and tang of citrus, aroma vaguely earthy.

Bouteille. Le liquide a une robe légèrement orangée et finement voilée. La mousse blanche cassée a une bonne rétention. Au nez, les quelques traces de levure rustre sont rapidement obnubilées par des effluves de pêches, d’oranges et d’épices. Les céréales de seigle rejoignent des parfums de banane qui s’affirment avec allégresse. Les houblons sont en fleurs et sont sucrées. Bouquet intéressant. Le goût est frais, je dirais même très frais avec des saveurs fortement fruitées et épicées et légèrement mielleuses. Les saveurs des houblons sont aussi en fleurs et manifestent une amertume fantomatique. En bouche, le liquide a une tenue somme toute solide avec une effervescence juste et une texture crémeuse. La finale me semble maltée, fruitée et épicée, voire même salée avec une touche franchement métallique.

Lanchester (186) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 4, 2011
Pours a pale, clear amber hue with an aggressive white head, leaves behind some nice lacing. Picking up on some sourness in the nose, blended with banana and grains. A fair amount of sweetness up front in the flavor, moves through into strong banana notes and finishes with a light acidity on the tongue. High carbonation level really widens the body and creates a smooth, full mouth-feel. I liked this one.

Liquide à la robe orangée et voilée, surmontée par une mousse dense et persistante, laissant une dentelle exemplaire. Les arômes sont situés sur une palette surette, laissant paraître ce fameux élément gazeux ainsi que de la levure poivrée. Un goût proche du levain par son acidité et une légère amertume imprègne la bouche. C’est bon sans être extraordinaire. (290-260712)

mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 12, 2012
750mL bottle, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of oranges, some light Belgian yeast, and light coriander. Flavour of coriander, banana and orange upfront, with a mild yeasty character. Nicely spicy and juicy saison. Solid stuff.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Bottle shared by Drew. Thanks! Pours a paler gold with a big white head that falls. Nose is full of citrus. Also some black tea and orange blossom. Clean pils and vanilla. On tasting, it’s a bit flabby. Peach and vanilla, more tea and citrus. Medium bitterness but has a pilsner sweetness that keeps it from drying out. Solid but not quite there.

dandeman (553) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2013
from a 750ml bottle bought at Peluso in Montreal. Aroma: cereal and grain with little lemony accents and Candi sugar. Appearance: Hazy blond / straw developing an average thickness head, creamy and long lasting. Head is sticking well to glass leaving a good lacing. Taste: We can well feel the Belgium yeast doing the work here with peppery and acid notes. Hops are at work also, leaving a floral bitterness that last for a long time. Acidity and bitterness are the main characteristics of this beer. Flavor notes are light but mainly Candi sugar, pepper, grain and cereal. A farm taste with a slight acidity. A good traditional season within style.
