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.

deepeary (111) - Ontario, - JUL 27, 2014
375 ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a pale yellow, cloudy, with large white head. Smell is dominated by Belgian yeast, banana, herbs, lemon. Effervescent carbonation. Taste is full of herbs and spice with a Belgian funk finish. Mildly bitter, with hints of tropical fruit. Refreshing too.

Temptation (224) - - SEP 15, 2014
Great saison, combining rusticity and elegance. The aroma is almost perfect, as you can expect of a classic saison. Earthy, floral, orangish and spicy notes -very spicy- round a overwhelming overall. Exceptional stuff

Fritz123 (1013) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle at the Syb Pig in Boca. Snifter. Pours a hay color with a pillowy head that lasted and laced some. The aroma is floral, some citrus, barnyard, wet dog, and perfume. The taste is similar with flowers, barnyard, slight cheese, funk, light color fruits, and hay. The finish is somewhat funky and floral. High carbonation, crisp. Great saison.

bartlebier (1723) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - SEP 12, 2014
Big bottle pour@5e Mondial de la Bière, Mulhouse. Thin fluffy hay-yellow beer. Aroma somewhere between perfumed wit yeast and bitter lemon infused civilised brett, aka New World saison. Thin bitter lemons meet and outplay well-behaving brett from the urbanised fermette courtyard. Pleasant, breezy summer sessioner.

Botella de 37.5 cl en el momento en el lúpulo el 12-09-2014. elaborada en 09-04-2014 para un año. Color amarillento con poca espuma blanca. Sabores y aromas ligeros, frescos, ligeramente maltosos y con tonos ácidos, cítricos y herbáceos. Sin mucho interés normal.

sudomorph (601) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2014
375ml bottle. Pours a hazy, pale yellow with a three finger, fluffy, white head. Aroma has nice notes of citrus, spice, a hint of bubble gum, and some farmhouse funk. Not overly sweet. Taste is balanced. Citrus, spice, farmhouse, a touch of yeast, and a bit of floral at the end. Medium body with a high carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a effervescent carbonation. Overall a pretty tasty saison. Great mouth feel with solid flavours of citrus, spice, and farmhouse.

bhensonb (11069) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Capped 750 from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours dishwater gold with a huge foamy white head. Thru all the foam the aroma is fruit and earth. Med body or better. Flavor is fruit, spice, earth. All somewhat mild individually, but rather flavorful together. Finishes well towards dry and earthy/spicy/fruity. Just excellent.

This is a nice almost sessionable Saison - yeasty and dry and a little fruit on the palate. Nice.

JoeMcPhee (8410) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2014
Cloudy golden pour with a huge thick white head. The nose is bright and spicy with a bit of lemon and a touch of clove along with a bit of white pepper and a dry malt backbone. It’s got a lot of yeast character but isn’t too phenolic. Has some dustiness and a bit of perfumey notes as well as some lingering fruitiness. Pear and apple esters along with some nice spiciness. It’s a lovely approachable saison.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2055) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 24, 2014
On tap at Vices et Versa. A Classic cloudy straw gold. It has a big wheaty spicy saison aroma that is quite full on. Quite full bodied with a full velvety mouthfeel. The taste is spicy, bitter Brett like funky farmhouse. A clean saison with a decent amount of complexity - nice.

Ernest (6220) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (flowers), lightly to moderately yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of gum, peach, pineapple. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Nice tropical nose, very fruity. A bit sweet in the mouth but still fairly quaffable. Maybe more of a plain Belgian golden ale than a saison, but still pleasant.
