Glouglouburp (6001) - Montreal, Quebec, - JAN 31, 2013
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.

Marheb (2017) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 19, 2013
Un corps qui laisse croire à un portion de blé combiné au malt de base. Des houblons agrumeux et du miel font le pont vers une finale acidulée. Intéressant et rafraîchissant.

Hoppypocket (408) - Trois-rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2013
Pours a hazy golden with white head and nice lacing. Aroma of honey, hay, ligth grain, clean yeasty profile. Taste is grainy, honey, grassy hops, clean saison profile, lightly acidic. Low body and medium carb. Better than the last batch i have had. Very refreshing and good drinkability.

czar (4292) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2012
on tap at bateau de nuit, qc. almost clear bright golden with a nice white head, some retention and lacing. saison-esque aroma, along with grainy lightly acidic wheat, breadied malts, floralness, citrus, wildflower. lively, as you would hope, light body, dry, almost tart, and citrusy medium long finish. not overly complex but very quenching, aromatic and nice.

JulienHuxley (3016) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 16, 2012
On tap ar bateau de nuit. Pale yellow gold pour with white head and sticky lacing. Aroma of honey, fresh grain, flowers, light grassy/herbal notes, light saison yeast, awesome. Taste is grainy, slight spicy hops, really light and refreshing, maybe a tad sweet. Palate is light with medium carbonation. Great beer.

MartinT (7779) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 24, 2012
My Bottom Line :
Tropical fruit in the citrus range adorn this Honey Saison’s floral honey character, as wheat and relative dryness increase the refreshment factor.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam covers the misty blond.
-Cereal character is redolent of wheat and even oat, at times.
-Honey flavors surprisingly linger in the aftertaste.
-This tastes like a cousin to Saison du Tracteur.

On tap at the Oktoberfest de Repentigny.

Quevillon (2475) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 12, 2012
Drank at the 2012 Oktoberfest des Québecois on September 9. Honey blonde, thin head. Spicy hop aroma with a touch of herbs with honey. Citrus hoppy taste dry herbs with a little honey, herbal dry aftertaste. It is very dry, even too much!

Lubiere (9877) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2012
A hazed golden ale with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet clover honey with coriander, nice. In mouth, a smooth Belgian ale with dry character, honey, OK. On tap at Bieres et Saveurs, Sept 2 2012.
