COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Translation: Saison du Tongka is a yellow-copper colored beer that is dry and refreshing. It has a spicy, candy-like aroma with a light phenolic touch typical of saison yeast. Taste is bold and generous, with a sharp acidity that leads to instantaneous thirst quenching.

From tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Pours clear golden with small white head. Aroma is sharp, yeasty, cheese. Taste is light sweet and bitter, dry, hoppy. Light bodied, easy going, balanced. Good.

Draft @ ML Fontainas. Dorée-ambrée, col blanc voire blanc cassé épais et soyeux. Arôme offre une belle palette d’effluves d’agrumes houblonnées restant dans un style euro-noble. Malt reste en rétro-nasal pourvoyant des notes grains renvoyant à ce profil de saison. Palais est sec presque terreux avec, ici aussi, des notes notes houblonnées que je trouve vertes et fraîches dans un ton noble et légèrement citronné. Profil malté est pâle, carapils avec une petite note levure en fin de bouche. Le profil général reste belge rappelant bien ce côté hennuyer des saisons.

nimbleprop (4190) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 2, 2014
12oz pour at Paradiso Dupont. Pours a transparent gold with some thin, white head. Nose has candy sugar, mild tropical fruit, bright pepper, some green apple. Flavor is similar, apple skins, pink peppercorns, a little yeast, some honey and candy sweetness. Mostly clean finish.

WheatKing (1162) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 6, 2014
On tap at Bellwoods, Toronto. Hazy gold, white head. Nose is pepper, apricot, wheaty. Palate is rounder than most saisons, dry, well carbonated. Feels like half American Wheat half Belgian ale with spice. Nice.

MrChopin (2927) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 22, 2013
transparent gold, puffy white ring, oily top. Sawdusty cedar and pepper nose, estery green apple and sugar seeping in. Dusty, dirty esters metallic through the biting zesty end. No excess sugar but messy and thin at times.

Sammy (8092) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2013
On tap at The Only Café. Hazy yellow body and lacy. The yeast gives it a hefe spice banana character, Its drinkable, its fine but I have had some really good saison lately.

jercraigs (7324) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2013
2013-09-21. Very hazy pastel orange body is sort of peach juice meets OJ in colour, nice creamy off white head and lace. Aroma is pleasant, modest fruity hops, light yeasty bite. Flavour is relatively mild but quite pleasant. Mild bitterness throughout, mild hops, mild fruit sweet orange, whisper of mango like tropical fruit. Very light grassy undertones. Very smooth bodied palate, soft carbonation is surprising considering the foamy pour. On tap at The Only Cafe, Toronto

JoeMcPhee (8188) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2013
Tap at Volo. Pale golden straw pour with a thin white head. The aroma is slightly spicy. A bit of clove and some light fruit. It’s dry with a light minerally finish. Pretty nice brew.

Jool (171) - - APR 6, 2013
En fût au Brouhaha. Blonde claire avec mousse généreuse. Nez de fleurs, de grains, un peu de miel... Bouche un peu mince mais tellement agréable: saison avec sucre résiduel bien présent. Se boit à grandes gorgées avec plaisir.

Marheb (1742) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 20, 2013
Bon mélange des esters de levure et de l’arrogance des houblons. Finale moyennement sèche, buvabilité brutale.
