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.

En bouteille, achetée chez Balthazar. Blonde orangée avec reflet dorée, belle encolure blanche sans dentelle. Arômes floraux, malts, levures de saison, fruités dont pamplemousses et fruits de la passion. Même chose au goût mais avec un petit arrière-goût d’amertume, pelure d’orange et houblon. Très rafraichissante mais en même temps très sec en bouche et la fin de bouche est très longue donc au finale c’est pas très désaltérant. Très bon tout de même.

On tap @Buskers Pub (Rome). Pours deep golden with a medium and persistent white head. Aroma is fruity, peach, lemon, orange zest, light spices, amazing. Flavour is well balanced, medium to light sweet with a perfect bitter end. Medium body, medium carbonation. A great saison!

SlackerMads (2358) - DENMARK - NOV 2, 2015
Bottle. Hazy golden with a large fluffy off white head with good retention and lace. Fruity nose with raspberries, peach, lemon candy, honey. Flavour follows with some bread, hay and dry grass also. Medium body, some sweetness, lively carbonation, mild bitter and dry finish with lingering fruity notes. The carbonation is a bit too high for my preference, but otherwise pretty enjoyable tractor stuff.

drpimento (2641) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 27, 2015
Wow, this beer restores my faith in Saison/ Biere de Garde/ Farmhouse styles again after the Saison Dupont debacle. Aroma is mainly yeast with some lemon/citrus. Flavor has some of that plus just enough malt sweet to balance and keep it interesting plus add body. The carbonation is perfect. Super drinkable. Outstanding suds!

From Club del Gourmet of El Corte Ingles. In Ikea’s pint glass. After dinner. Easy drinking, great aroma and tasty. The saison ive liked most so far. Hoppy and itchy.

Draft. The aroma has hay, herbs and citrus. The taste however is spicy! It has ginger and kardamon. Really interesting!

Kauge (952) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 11, 2015
Tap at Bar Hop’s new place on St Peter, Toronto. Darkish opaque yellow with white head. Retention and lacing good. Oh no... Spicy bandaid aroma... Also flavour... But if I look past this - which is difficult - I get fresh sweet and sour fruitiness, and quite some funk. Carbonation active but rather pleasantly so, dryish finish. No, I didn’t really like this one.

Robe jaune, au nez les senteurs d’agrumes dominent. En bouche c’est l’explosion de ces arômes d’agrumes, mêlé à des notes épicés. Une bière très équilibrée et désaltérante.
