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.

biirusaikou (1928) - - JAN 18, 2016
Draught at BarVolo. Candy, mikan, apple bit of spice, pretty light body, soft mouthfeel, short earthy finish with a floral edge. Decent brew but a bit mild and simple maybe.

j12601 (8700) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 21, 2015
On tap at Le Saint Bock. Pours a lightly hazed gold with a thick white head. Delicate musk, soft wheat on the nose, yeast. Medium bodied, musky and full of wheat. Musk, soft wheat. Light musk into the finish, slow earthy bitterness.

hellonearth (92) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 18, 2015
Arômes d’oranges sucrées et de pain. Robe jaunâtre un peu trouble. Au goût, agrumes séchés, une pas pire amertume. Un semblant coniférien. Coolos.

yourilevesque (906) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 14, 2015
Un liquide partiellement filtré. Une mousse blanche moyenne. Nez de levures saison sans funk, sans réel caractère. De l’orange. En bouche le liquide est soyeux. Une pétillance de minuscules bulles caressent mon palais. C’est tellement doux que c’est presque laiteux. Saveurs très légères et minces de trèfle, de gazon fraîchement tondu ponctués de houblons doux, printaniers et à peine amers à l’attaque mais qui s’estompent cependant en une délicate finale amère. Bière qui a le défaut de sa qualité : elle se boit magnifiquement bien puisqu’elle ne goûte pas grand chose.

Kauge (1040) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 26, 2015
Tap at Bar Volo. Pale, hazy yellow (not the most pale though), with a white head and a lot of bubbles. Sour, wheaty, fermented apples. Fruitiness. Pleasant spiciness. The flavour’s extremely bitter, like very-very unripe apples. The spiciness continues. Crisp, well carbonated, medium lightish body. Dryish palate. Very nice.

Straw and light florals. Pours golden. Light crisp finish. Light crisp finish. Not a lot going on. Tap at barhop.

mzaar (2422) - Varberg, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2015
Fat @ BarVolo, Toronto. Oklar guldfärgad med ett vitt skum. Citrus, gräs och örter i näsan. Samma återkommer i smaken tillsammans med en lättare pepprighet. Besk avslutning, torr munkänsla. Känns något oren.

Tranquillity (1645) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2015
Hazy orange body, small bubbles. The aroma is sweet, Langtry malty and with oranges. The taste is hoppy. Nice!

mcberko (11209) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 10, 2015
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a hazy yellow with a small white head. Nose brings out Belgian yeast, some candied sugar, and a little bubblegum. Flavour is along the same lines, with a sharp phenolic character upfront, followed by Belgian yeast, light candy notes and spiciness on the finish. Not overly complex. Quite phenolic and boozy for being sub-5%. Off the mark.

Travlr (18697) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Draft. Hazy golden yellow color, medium white head. Aroma of lightly spiced lemon. Taste has lightly funky citrus, raw bread dough, subtle white pepper. Decent.
