HogTownHarry (6126) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, - JUN 19, 2013
June 17, 2013 - on draught at the brewpub. Hazy gold with a smallish but reasonably lasting creamy off-white head, nice lacing. Smells like a sweet saison - honey, spices, dry floral bitterness, hint of banana - definitely a little alcohol in the aroma - grassy too (8-). Taste follows, more alcohol presence, less over sweetness, but a little more banana character - solid, but just a hair more alcohol than what would make this a real "drinker" --- thick mouthfeel, airy but not that carbonated - medium long finish, starts sweet with honey and mild fruit, finishes with more grassy alcoholic dry bitterness - a strong saison for sure, but a good one.

La Saison Haute is an 8.5% saison that pours a crystal clear gold with no head. The nose is that musty funk I associate with the style. It’s got a smooth soft body and a musty, tart, funky taste. A good example of a belgian saison.

cargo150 (627) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 25, 2014
Couleur dorée avec un beau col mousseux. Au nez levure de saison, quelques agrumes et beaucoup de céréales. En bouche c’est beaucoup trop céréalier pour moi, je n’aime pas ce type de saison, pas assez de coté fruité. Respectable mais pas mon genre.

On tap on the premises. Cloudy light gold with a thin frothy white head. Flavors are cereals, dough, banana peel, stone fruits, grapefruit and honey with spicy and herbal notes. Light to medium body, moderate to high carbonation, smooth texture.

En fut sur place. D’un jaune orangê tirant sur l’orange. Un peu trouble. Nez de poivre, agrumes....au goût un peu d’agrumes...peu sèche, manque de funk....alcool present et amertume aussi. Peu representatif du style.

750ml bottle shared thanks to Lukaduke! Pours cloudy toasted orange with big head. Nose is yeast forward fruity spice and peppery grains. Taste is doughy bread with peppery citrus spice and prominent yeasty fruit. Has a bit of a boozy undertone. Finish is dry doughy rustic bread, grain, and yeast spice.

Lukaduke (2243) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Pours a ripe golden color with three fingers of white fluffy foam. Nose is true to style with some bright floral fieldgrass, supporting rustic grain and nuances of lemon, barnyard hay and peppered yeast. Palate follows nicely with a doughy grain forward start that sets the base for the complex notes of cirtus, floral grass, spicy yeast and strong carbonation to amp the flavors and dry out the finish.

piscator34 (1974) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 19, 2014
Bottled sample via breWedge. Gold in colour with strong carbonation. Aromas are of sweet orange, herbs, cut grass, pilsner malt, and wet stones. More dry herbal and grainy in the mouth, with a bit of toasted marshmallow I the I as well. Smells sweet, it tastes and finishes dry. A bit like St. Feuillien, but more dy. Good overall.

Minderbinder (1887) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 26, 2014
Bottle 750ml. Pours hazy blond with medium white head. Good lacing. Aroma is of belgian yeast, fruits, sugar. Taste is of belgian yeast, sugar, fruits, citrus. Palate: Medium body. Light-medium carbonation. Overall: Good. Nice yeast action fruit-wise. Not off. Just a bit too heavy and not so drinkable for the style. Some sugar in there.
