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.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 6, 2010
Tap at Mondial. This and Zeeland were the 2 best saisons of the fest by far. Pours a nice light golden hazed with a fluffy lasting white head and nice coating of lace. Aroma is spicy orange zest, with apricot, mango, peppery spicy phenolics and grass- mostly doughy clean bready malts and very low sweetness- good belgian/french saison yeastiness. Flavor is more pineapple and grapefruit from the hops and yeast, apricot, orange juice, nelson sauvin, gets to be white wine like, some mineral and grass in the end and nicely dry on the end with good tacky bitterness in the end. Nice Hopped up saison.

No Anchor, Seattlr. Lacing thin white foam. Bright orange highlights on soft gold. Clean yeast dominates the nose. Soft, clean banana sip, round soft body. Soft grass, very modest spice character. Nice drinker.

Tap at No Anchor. Hazy orange. Floral and citrus notes on the nose. Juicy. Flavor follows, keeping a lovely floral background on a relatively sweet, fruit-forward saison. Nice.

Smell of pepper and coriander. Nice white flothy head that stays for a while. Taste of cracked pepper and has a spicy aftertaste that lingers well after the sip is done. Sits well on the palate with spicy notes . a very good Canadian saison.
