In short: A very tasty little rustic blond Saison with a sharp dryness and a generous hopping. Good beer
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy yellow-blonde body topped by a small white head leaving good lacings on the glass
In long: Nose is unmistakably rustic, sun dried straw, a zest of lemon. Taste has a lot of dry straws, a slice of lime, dry lemon skin, fresh bananas, dried bananas, yellowed dry grass. Finish is nicely dry, medium acidity, moderately tart and is accompanied by a dry grassy bitterness. Bitterness level was pretty high for the style but somehow fit the beer very well. This 4.2% beer is not a watered down Saison, this was actually very flavorful and nourishing while remaining highly drinkable as it should. I would have preferred a little less acidity but this is nonetheless a very nice summer beer. This is a small beer that is obviously not getting much love on ratebeer, but I stand for what I believe in, and I stood up a few times to get another pint because I believe this was a very good beer.

rodenbach99 (4251) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2012
Style et résumé: Saison légère à 4,2% alc/vol.
Comment: Une pinte en fût sur place.
Description: Bière blonde dorée trouble avec une mousse blanche. Le nez est rustique (grande découverte) avec des arômes de citron, de levure saison. La bouche est classique, rustique, citronnée et la finale est très sèche. Facile à boire, gouteuse et agréable comme tout.
Note: 6 /10
