Hoppypocket (408) - Trois-rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 3, 2013
Tap at station host. Pour is hazy golden with nice white head and huge lacing. Aroma light citrusy hops, caramel, saison yeast. Taste is pretty malty and fairly sweet for the style, some citrusy and butter hops, light fruity notes. Medium body and good carb. Way too malty and sweet for a saison. Not my thing.

Bretteux (159) - Ste-Julie, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2013
Le liquide est doré-orangé,opaque,sans col et un petit anneau de mousse.Au nez,on sent bien les levures belges,les agrumes(citron et lime) et des notes poussiéreuses.Au goût,c,’est aigre,citronné,malté et en final bien amère et asséchant .Pour conclure,une saison différente et bien réussi!

TheRealMGD (549) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - APR 12, 2013
Bottle from 99B, marked 5/12 & stored in a cool cellar. Cloudy orange pour with a brief, short white head leaving minimal lace. Nose is banana, ripe pear and some booze. Medium-heavy body with light, fine carbonation. Ripe pear, banana & Delicious apple. Some heat, minimal barnyard. Finish is more of the same. Not what I look for in a saison. Seems to follow a (bad, IMO) trend in saisons from this side of the pond: too sweet and heavy. Plus, this one is missing the rocky head and lively carbonation.

Johnsense (701) - - MAR 30, 2013
Cloudy orange pour, thumb of head. Aroma or orange, lemon rind, pear, very fruity. Pear and lemon up front, grassy, hop bitterness comes through. Medium body. This one couldn’t live up to that fantastic aroma but still quite god.
