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.

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.

Bottle, 11/24/2014. Pours hazy golden orange, huge frothy head with great retention. Aroma is light fruit, touch of honey and floral perfume, doughy yeast. Taste is lemon wheat, banana, yeast, mellow spice/pepper and bitterness in the finish, not overdone. Light body, crisp carbonation but smooth mouthfeel. Nice, well-done straightforward saison.

Bottle at home picked up at Mile High. Pour is hazy lemon peel with a frothy white head and great lacing. Minerals, straw, bright lemons, grass, somewhat herbal, light spice, yeast, and cereal in the aroma. Taste is big grassy, dough, light pepper, some tart lemons, somewhat chalky, biscuit, and nice straw notes with a semi-bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Clean, semi-tart and effervescent. Nice stuff.

I’m not sure how I never rated this - I’ve had it enough times. This is excellent. Comes together with great hay. Pours cloudy golden with good head and lacing. Finishes with light bitterness, some citrus. Some peel, excellent balance. Tap at Churchkey.

HopsandBolts (165) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2014
375 ml bottle from the LCBO. Appearance: Pours a very hazy yellow with gobs of white head that fades very fast. Aroma: Pine, air fresheners, flowers, cut grass, lemon and lime. Flavours: Lime, lemon, grass, some hops. Mouthfeel: Highly carbonated and thin. Overall: There were some great aromas coming of this one. So much going on with the grassy floral notes and the hints of citrus. The flavours mimicked the aromas. Again, lots going on.
