3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
In short: A semi-rustic blond Saison with tropical fruits, flowers and honey.
How: Tap at Vices & Versa, Montreal.
The look: Cloudy blonde topped by a large white head with good retention leaving a lot of lacings on the glass.
In long: Nose is bright and vibrant with tropical fruits, rustic countryside character, honey flowers. Taste has honeyed cereals, plenty of fresh tropical fruits, freshly cut wheat and hay, flower petals. Low sweetness sensation despite the honey flavor. Lots of tickling hard bubbles. Refreshing beer. Very good beer even if I prefer their dryer more rustic Saison Du Tracteur, actually I thought Mellifera tasted a bit like a honeyed version of Saison Du Tracteur. A nice honey Saison named after a species of honey bee, and I think my father must have messed up our "bees deposit pollen in flowers" sex talk when I was a kid because I can’t drink a honey beer without getting horny.

[7016-20141231] Tap. Wood barrel and sour yeast aroma. Hazy, orange body with a long-lasting foamy off-white head. Soured yeasty lemon pips and tart fruity pate flavour. Medium body is quite sour. Tasty but took me a few sips to get into it. (7/4/9/4/16) 4.0

Overheard: "I’ve got a FouFoune for tonight. A 750. I’m gonna drink it from the bottle."

600 ml Bottle. Kind of yellow/white hazy color with quick lasting head. the smell is very acid ..... I can feel apple and oranges but not by much. Taste is pretty much the same.. I can taste the hints of honey they put in. I’m kind of wondering if my bottle is infected...It’s just too acid to be normal...It’s sad I really wanted to enjoy that one... maybe another day
