3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From tap@porte noir. Yellow misty color, white head. Nose:citrus, yeast, fruity, hops, very well balanced and very fresh. Taste:yeast, hop, citrus, lemon. Bit tintling, spicy undertone. Lacks some punch, but again, easy drinkable. Bitter, hoppy. Very nice beer, lacks the dryness of a real saison, still, good stuff.

At CML fontainas .
Pours unclear amber . Resistant good white head .
Smell is fresh and hoppy .
Taste is aromatically hoppy , bit bitter .
Some lemon notes . Not dry / hay at all, so hard to see this as a saison . i’d call this a hoppy belgian ale . Yet its nice, and that is what its all about .

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden body with a medium creamy white head. Nose is mild grainy notes, wheat, muscovado grapes, wet grass and hints of faint phenolic rubber-like notes, citrus, white sugar and hay. Taste is sweet grainy tones, straw, hay, white sugar, wheat and hints of bitter citric tones. Medium body, medium to high carbonation. Enjoyable enough, but far from a great saison.

Hazy golden with white head. Aroma is spice, ripe fruit, earth and citrus. Fruity palate. Aftertaste is dry, fruity, hops, metallic and bitter. Overall: After trying the excellent La dalmatienne from La fantome i was quite underwelmed with this one

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A golden beer with a big and blond head. The aroma is great, fruits and slightly tropical, mangos, citrusfruits, grass, some spices and grain. Taste has grain with the great hops, sour citrusfruits, grass, nice spicyness. Medium bodied, strong carbonation, fresh to drink. Not a typical saison. Aromatic hops integrates to traditional saison. Tasteful beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ home. Hazy pale straw color with white foam. Nose is rather heavy on the apple. A lot of straw, grass, and stone fruit. Soft wheat bread, some yeast, and maybe some white grape. Flavor is a touch on the sweet side. Cider and white grape notes are rather strong. Some bread, cracker, and grass. Subtle bitterness. A dry fruit skin character on the finish. Not as good as I’d hoped.
