VT (1413) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2013
750 ml bottle. Pours a veiled golden with a resilient white head. Aroma is citrus and yeast. Flavor is oranges, cloves, citrus, spices. Interesting! Light herbal finish, not quite strong. Makes the beer soft, somewhat dry, but very drinkable. Some citrusy bitterness, but in the end, this ale is sweeter than it is bitter. Medium body, average carbonation. Pretty good!

bpr77 (264) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Pours orange golden color. Not much head...disappates quick which is odd for a saison. Aroma is candied oranges, corriander, and spicy yeast. Taste is dry, tropical fruits, pinneaple, and cereal. Very nice saison and excellent overall taste and finish . Aroma is a bit weak...but thats ok

dandeman (542) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 20, 2013
750ml bottle at Brothers in Ottawa Aroma: Wet grass mainly with some other different herbs. Appearance: Blurred, almost no head, big bubbles, no lacing but sticking well on glass forming nice legs all around with tiny bubbles of lacing. Never seen that. Taste: Slightly acid and sour. Herbs and grass are coming back on a slightly malty bottom.. That sour and acid taste is reminding me a lambic or a start of a lambic. And it happens that I do not like them.

melies (12) - CANADA - JAN 17, 2013
Bouteille de 750 ml, légère mousse après l?avoir versée qui disparait immédiatement. Odeur d?agrume et ne cache pas son acidité. Un peu surette au goût. Se boit facilement. Très agréable.

solidfunk (4322) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Smells a little musky and yeasty. Aroma has lots of fruitniness, herbes-hard to say what exactly but it makes for a great drink. There’s a decent amount of citrus taste here as well. Good lacing, pours golden clear. Taste has a little sourness and some sweetness and leaves off very nice, very balanced. Another great saison from Hopfenstark.

mcberko (6882) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 7, 2012
750mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small beige head. Aroma of coriander, wheat, orange peel and some mild barnyard. Flavour is very wheaty and light orangey, with mild rustic qualities and coriander. Easily drinkable, lightly spicy and wheaty. Very good saison.

Marheb (2267) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 26, 2012
Pratiquement aucune effervescence, très aqueux, empreint de verdure et de foin dans une soupe aux malts effacés.
