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.

Ma saison préféré au Québec suivi par la saison du pinacle. La saison du tracteur est supérieur en fût qu’en bouteille à mon avis. C’est simplement délicieux. Rafraichissant, petit goût de céréales, d’agrumes et de fruits. Très belle texture et l’odeur est vraiment bien. Légère amertume. Cette saison est disponible partout au Québec et à l’année longue. Un grand classique du Trou du diable. Miam.

Sour smell. The taste is incredibly balanced with fitting carbonation that supports the sourness. Very refreshing.

manuelMTL (220) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with a frothy white head. Nose is spicy, Belgian yeast, citrus and tropical fruits. Very promising. In the mouth, there is a nice Saison spiciness and pepper notes backed up by floral hops, citrus & banana notes, grains, and a long medium pine bitterness. Great mouth feel and high carbonation. Perfect fruity Saison!

vyvvy (4536) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Pours hazy yellowish orange with a large white head. The aroma has pale malt, powder, nectar fruit, lemon, tropical fruit, saison bugs and a brightness to everything. It has a medium / light body that is very crisp and snappy with a pretty good amount of carbonation, The flavor starts up with spice, dry stone fruits, saison earthiness, peppery spice and a bit of a wild yeast aspect. The finish is crisp and refreshing with smooth fruitiness contrasting nicely with the earthy dry qualities. Really nicely done saison.

Nice yellow color with big white head. Aroma is yeasty, honey, banana, light fruits, a little hint of funk. Taste is light and spicy-aromatic. Light body and smooth feel, but still refreshing. A good classic Saison.
