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.

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.

Bawelt (459) - Lyon, FRANCE - JUN 11, 2016
Nez ultra levure, fond houblonné, assez pauvre. Nez très porté sur la pêche. Légèrement poivré. Bouche très effervescente, assez pêche, assez levures. Pas mauvaise, juste pas mon style.

AssKicker (166) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - APR 21, 2016
Bue à la pression. Belle blondeur, beau col de mousse qui fait de la résistance. Senteur citronnée, rond en bouche, pas très porté sur le houblon, mais plus sur la levure qui domine, avec du malt légèrement caramélisé en renfort. Ça fait très belge tout ça. Bonne, mais sans plus.
