Saison Faucille results from a select harvest of barley, wheat, rye and oats. Complex character and a silky mouthfeel help to define this one-of-a-kind farmhouse ale.

MartinT (8127) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2011
My Bottom Line:
Exuberant yeast showcases banana esters and dough within buoyant floral, herbal hops and comfortable cereals for a delicious American Saison.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the misty golden.
-The fluffy natural carbonation made this quite drinkable.
-The flavor profile is perhaps more intense than your average Saison.
-The yeast signature was quite loud throughout, but it never felt out of place.
-Citrus fruit emerged once in a while.

Poured an extremely cloudy orangish gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of doughy funk with a bit of sweet grains, flora and citrus backing. Flavor was similarly funky with earthy and doughy notes with flora and sweet grains mixing in as well.

Bottle at RBWG, thanks! Pours a murky golden hue with a medium white head. A smooth dry nose of citrus and grains, some spices. A refreshing, and I needed to be refreshed at that point in the day, spicy smooth flavor, lots of citrus and grains. I think the rye adds a nice element to the spiciness. A smooth dry quaffable brew. Very nice.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 25, 2011
In short: A rustic, tasty, fruity and slighlty tart blond Saison. Very good.
How: From a bottle at Mondial de la Bière 2011
The look: Almost clear light blond body topped by a small white head
In long: Nose is quite rustic with notes of sweet bananas and mangos. Nice full body with a fluffy mouthfeel and a lively carbonation. Taste showcases the rustic character of the beer with both a dusty attic and a barnyard sensation. Plenty of fruity flavors including bananas, mangos and lemon zest. Light hops presence that feels a bit herbal, a bit flower petals. Finish is quite dry A nice tartness. A friend told me that I have to like this beer if I like Saison. He was right but don’t you hate people that let other people tell them what to think? Of course you do.
