3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 mil bottle from brewery, bottled 11/08/31#1038, cool, tulip, shared with brother. Hazy orange amber with a so so off white head. Lots of citrus and resin, berry notes, slightly woodsy, bitter green herbs, Saison funkiness (odd), a little sweet maltiness, not as expected. Medium+ body, vivicious effervescence. Strong Saison funk with bitter green herbs, sweet, fruity malts, big citrus peel, not at all what I expected; sweet with good bitterness, booze, and a long fruity, funky finish. Devilish indeed.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
December 6, 2012 - on draught at Les Brasseurs du Temps. Reasonably hazy amber-gold with an average but lasting thick creamy off-white head. Aroma - a bit boozy, lemon and tangerine zest, quite sharp (8-). Taste is quite strong - a nice solid fruit-sweet malty backbone to frame strong citrus light pine bitterness and quite a bit of alcohol - very ear-warming. A bit boozy, strongly bitter, solid carbonation, some astrinency, dry grapefruit pith finish, a little sweet in the aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Glass, poured at La Saint-Bock - Montreal, QC. Strong, grassy lupulin and pot aroma. It really puts forth a grassy essence, as does the flavor. Dry, tropical hops are paired with grating, broken chlorophyll tones. This is a little coarse and brusk, focusing on the bitterness and less on the dankness of hop flavors. T’wasn’t unpalatable though and made for a nice, hoppy introduction to a warm Montreal evening.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Superbe bière trouble, couleur de miel et coiffée d’un épais col crème marquant le verre d’une opulente dentelle. Des arômes fruités de caramel, puis la chaleur de l’alcool avec un agréable passage floral. Solidement amère, sans trop de sucre résiduel. De corps solide, crémeuse elle est moyennement effervescente. Elle se termine sur une longue fin amère et doucement aromatique.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours hazy/murky golden. Minimal head. Aroma is of citrus, acidity. Taste is of citrus, weird malt, alcohol. Overall: Maybe I have to re-rate in the future, but for now I would say this beer tastes weird, which is no compliment.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle from the brewery. Pours a hazy reddish copper colour with some thick white head that dissipates slowly. Smell is sweet, but clearly balanced with some hoppy goodness, lots of citrus and something a little floral. Palate is fairly thick and a bit oily, slightly lighter than average carbonation. Taste is initially a bit sweet, but then the bitter hops roll in and just lingers for a long while. A bit of a warming alcohol sensation in the throat. Excellent for summer, but I’d drink it year-round.
