Elles sont parfaites les saisons de Fred!! Le goût d’herbes est présent, mais toujours bien dosé puis l’apparence et l’arôme sont justes excellentes!

Pours a cloudy light golden yellow with a nice frothy white head and an aroma that is very floral. Loads of yeast and grass, also some banana and spice. Taste is a big mouthfeel of spice, floral and yeast. This would be so much better on a hot day on a patio. I’ll have to settle for now, in my livingroom watching a hockey game in -27 degree weather. Still great.

Gorbalev (2916) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2008
Bottle shared with Hogtown Harry, Blankboy, GregClow, and Garthicus, courtesy of GregClow and thanks to the guys at Hopfenstark for the bottle! Floral, herbal aroma, really really nice and inviting. Dark hazy yellow, small white head, loos terrific. Huge sour taste at first, fades to a lovely floral quenching finish. Light malt, huge flavour. Complex. These guys know how to make terrific Saisons.

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.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 Bottle (750ml) Shared by GregClow with me, blankboy, garthicus and tupalev. Hazy orange, plenty of floaties, and an average lasting creamy off-white head. Incredibly dry and spicy/herbal aroma, with citrus zest and decent malty sweetness. The taste has so much happening - lemon sourness (big up-front hit of sourness, abates quickly), orange zest, grassy bitterness, spicy yeast, and a lingering acidity - note was "fucking awesome!" Lively mouthfeel, acidic, sticky, finishes sour and crisp (if that’s possible) - WANT MORE OF THIS.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, garthicus, blankboy & tupalev - my bottle, via the brewery. Hazy dark golden with a small white head. Aroma is very herbal and dry, with a nose-tingling tart/sour edge. Medium bodied. Flavour is moderately sour and quite herbal, with a strong citrus ege, a bit of yeast, and a dry, bracing finish. Awesome.

Whatup14 (707) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - APR 15, 2014
Bouteille 750ml. Couleur dorée trouble, voile de mousse blanche. Arôme herbal, levure, malt, un peu sûre, citron. Goût de levure, malt, herbal, amertume moyenne surtout en fin de bouche. Carbonatation faible, corps moyen-dense.

Boutip (4688) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 17, 2011
Draft: Poured a dirty opaque beige color ale with a large foamy head with super great retention and some good lacing. Aroma of spices and herb with great rustic malt notes. Taste is very refreshing with great notes of spices and herb (something similar to coriander stands out but I couldn’t say what exactly), some rustic malt notes and some light funky ester. Body is quite full with some very limited filtration and good carbonation. Very nice beer which I would love to have more regular access to.

garthicus (2662) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 7, 2008
Shared by GregClow with BlankBoy, Tupalev and HogTownHarry. Appearance: Hazy orange with a small head. Aroma: wonderful pineapple and herb aroma, fruity and refreshing. Flavour: Herbs, champagne, really hits the tip of the tongue, lemon and coriander. Really enjoyable, another hit from Hopfenstark.

LadySusan (720) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 16, 2009
Taster at Festival Bieres et Saveurs 08. The color is a hazy honey with a beige head. The aroma is so pleasant with the presence of herbs spicies and malt. The taste is also of herbs and mint and malt. The finish is a dry taste that is very pleasing.
