rob6239 (651) - Ontario, - DEC 29, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2013 From 750 ml bottle. Pours light gold with frothy bright white head. Aroma is grassy with a slight hit of citrus. Taste is smooth and light sweet with no bitterness and good range of mouthfeel.

Tessic (906) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2014
This Saison poured a slightly cloudy, dark yellow colour with the biggest, bright white head I’ve seen in a long time. Scents include allspice, cider, very light vinegar and ripe fruit. First swig was very carbonated with flavours of spice and yeast most prodominant. Finish was sharp with a little bitter hop flavour and yeast flavours lingeriung.

DuffMan (7037) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle, shared with TylerDurden. Cloudy orange-tinted gold topped by a thick white meringue (the picture here captures it perfectly!). Aroma of fruity yeast and light malts. Flavours of fresh pineapple and lemon, nice rustic yeast character, biscuit malts, lightly spicy. I thought this was a great saison.

rejtable (1439) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2014
Really nice. Pours slightly cloudy dark straw with a huge croaky head that almost gushes. Nose is dusty and dough. Flavours are lemon, dough, some grassy bitterness, light pepper. Taste is light sweet light bitter. Mouth is agressiveky carbonation, makes it a bit hard to pick up the flavours. Well done though.

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 19, 2014
Cloudy pale golden pour , very hard to pour at that, covered by a gigantic, rocky white head. Peppery, pear-like nose with a tartish rusticity with dust and floury dough character. Pale fruits and fairly acidic flavour profile, it works decently in the nose, but the mouthfeel is, even for a Saison, very exageratedly carbonated. It almost hurts, it bites with a carbonic acid splash. Underneath, a grainy, rustic grain malt profile couples with the high effervescence to provide a relatively dry palate, with an almost astringent, drying finish. Little hoppiness in there, but laudable yeast character, just racy enough to feel authentic, I could have scored this much higher with a more polite effervescence level. It just kills in-mouth flavour development as it is.

JulienHuxley (3482) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle at Tom’s. Lightly hazy gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is really fruity, peaches, a bit of banana even, really yeasty, too estery. Taste is sweet, fruity, bready, spicy Belgian finish. Palate is med full bodied with med carbonation.

tom10101 (3109) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle (750 ml). From Ontbeertaster, thanks Andrew! Clear golden with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is quite fruity and yeasty along light spiciness and hints of sweetness. Taste is sweet, herbal and quite fruity along cereals, light spiciness and honeyed notes. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Fruity finish. Not easy to drink because of the fruitiness. Lack of balance.

Yeasty aroma with notes of pear and berries. Big fluffy head and cloudy orange colour. Fruity front with slightly sour finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Really tasty brew.

asheft (2553) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2014
[bottle from Kelly and Joe--thanks!] Sweet and peppery aroma with spicy phenolics and white grape. Hazy dark yellow under an eternal, rocky, white cover. Fairly smooth and creamy with high carbonation, fresh white grape and apple flavour with no shortage of peppery phenolics and faint pineapple. Medium to light body, high carbonation, sweet but with a dry finish.

lesifflebiere (1356) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 10, 2014
Couleur paille humide, elle est très pétillante sous son épaisse couche de mousse blanche ; son nez est de poires, de raisins, de pommes et de pain frais. Plus sèche qu’annoncée en bouche, elle est encore cependant dominée par les fruits, avec une finale très légèrement poivrée, le tout étant assez rond. Manque de houblons pour souligner son caractère, sinon nous avons affaire ici à une des meilleures saisons canadiennes hors-Québec, sans aucun doute.
