Whatup14 (668) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 1, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2013 Bouteille 750ml. Couleur blond paille un peu trouble, mousse blanche abondante. Arôme de levure, d’agrumes, un peu floral. Goût de miel, d’alcool, de levure, poivré en fin de bouche. Carbonation faible, corps moyen. L’arôme et le goût de levure rappelle un peu les bières d’Unibroue.

Bottle from Secret Santa. Deep golden color. Peppery hops and dried tropical fruit in the aroma and flavor. Fizzy mouthfeel. Estery with vennel, nutmeg and ginger. Marmelade finish.

BeerGolem (660) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 1, 2012
Sample on tap at Bières et saveurs (Chambly). Pours cloudy amber with creamy white head. Nice lacing. Aroma and favour: roasted malt, fruits, hops, slight acidity. Good bitterness with malty finish. Great balance. Full bodied. On style.

Metalchopz (2199) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2012
Purchased a 750ml bottle of this at my local Métro store. Pours a hazy golden colour with an amber hue. Big bubbly-creamy white head that stays long and gives out beautiful lacing. Alcohol aromas with orange and hints of other citrus fruits. Hints of yeast with some spices. Thankfully, the alcohol is not in the mouth. Kind of a mild mouthfeel, just carbonated. Quite easy to drink actually, with a mild taste. Citrus fruits, spices and the hop giving this a nice bitterness (and dryness). The alcohol does disappear after breathing a bit. A nice one, but I prefered their "La saison basse".

unibrouefan (200) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2012
Consommée directement chez Les brasseurs du temps. En fut. Cette bière de saison est complexe. Sublime bière. Forte effervescence. Superbe jaune ambrée. Senteur de noix, fleur et saucisse. Goût d’épice, blé rôti, pacane rôtie, jambon. Belle fin en bouche.

AlainG (1127) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 5, 2012
Liquide orangée d’apparence trouble, surmonté par une mousse dense, immaculée et persistante, qui laisse une belle dentelle. Des arômes prononcés d’agrumes au premier flairage, suivis d’odeurs surettes, acidulées, le tout accompagné de ce fameux gaz que je hume fréquemment dans certaines bières. Des saveurs très près des senteurs. L’acidité est présente du début à la fin, en laissant des traces sur son passage de tout ce qui se rapproche de l’aigreur, de pointes sûres et amères. L’alcool se présente au moment où on ne l’attendais plus et reste pour nous achever. J’aime bien l’étiquette. (Embouteillée 12-0521 Lot #1496) (284-100712)

VT (1298) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 9, 2012
750 ml bottle. Pours a foggy yellow orange with a persistent white head. Smells peppery. Taste is spicy, peppers, with a weak lemon bitter finish. Body is light-average. Refreshing. An alright saison, no more.

GuillaumeCL (343) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2012
750mL bottle from the brewery. Pours a hazy golden orange with lots of creamy white head that dissipates slowly. Smell is a bit weak but features predominantly hops with a little bit of barnyard funk. Palate is good with medium body and a bit of an oily feel that coats the tongue and moderate carbonation. Taste is a bit strange, it’s like a sour IPA. Lots of hoppy bitterness but also a bit of sourness that doesn’t quite get strong enough. Good, but could be better.

kevinsenn (1023) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 14, 2012
750mL bottle from Broue Ha Ha. Cloudy golden appearance with a huge frothy white head. Nice aroma of citrus and peppery spice. Dry/bitter grapefruit taste with some spice, some mustiness and alcohol near the end, and finally a bitter finish. Lots of carbonation (hence the huge head). Nice.
