COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blonde opalescente coiffée d’une généreuse couronne de mousse. On trépigne en humant ses arômes complexes d’agrumes et de fruits de la passion qui dévoilent les prémisses d’une satisfaction future. La bouche offre les mêmes fruits, parallèlement au goût d’épices produits par une levure saison authentique. Il en résulte une bière désaltérante, combinant avec un charme certain le flair du Nouveau Monde et la rusticité du vieux continent.

Poured from the tap. Slight hazy golden yellow with minimal white head. Aroma of lots of yeast and citrus especially lemon. Light and refreshing with a very mild sour note and a slightly bitter peel finish.

Smells of the funk you would expect of a saison with fruity tones and spices. Looks golden and slightly hazy, white 1/2 finger width of head. Tastes slightly grassy, spices, slightly melony, and pear. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, slightly dry dry and very pleasant.

Stephane_Houle (77) - - MAY 14, 2014
Apparence: D’une couleur jaune dorée opaque, elle est coiffée d’une belle mousse légère et généreuse. Effervescence quasi inexistante. Arômes: Principalement les céréales et une touche d’agrumes. Saveurs: Au goût, c’est céréales qui domine au commencement et par la suite, c’est la subtilité du houblon qui embarque, sans devenir écrasant.

guzgorog (224) - FRANCE - MAY 1, 2014
Bonde assez pale, beau col de mousse blanche aérienne. Agréable nez fruité de la passion et levures. En bouche, le fruit de la passion domine également contrebalancé par les épices de la levure, amertume moyenne et assez sèche. Superbe carbonation. Longueur en bouche un peu légère. Superbe variation sur la saison. Rafraichissante et fruitée. Excellente !

650 mL bottle. Pours hazy peach nectar with abundant white foam and lots of yeast. Citrus and guava, some mildly sweet malt, a touch of banana and spice. Very juicy. Fruity sweet and some mild hop bitterness. Creamy mouthfeel with lots of carbonation. Medium body. Awesome balance, a must try!

thb (671) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 12, 2014
Pours very pale light yellow. Hazy. Inches of rocky white head. Aroma is bright fruity citrus with peppery yeast. Taste is spicy, dry, refreshing. Less fruit in the taste than when just smelling it and more bitter earthiness. Finish lasts forever. Nice.
