3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2oz can. Unfiltered orange color. Mild, good, but sort of pedestrian. Some herbal tastes, but pretty much a little thin and straightforward. Mild.

can offering..pours a light to medium amber orange hue..with an immense amount of particles and haze all abound that eventually settle somewhat to the bottom but do stick around..a rather hazy..chunky beer..aroma is ok with traces of citrus spice soaked apricot..mouthfeel is light-medium bodied with a bit of depth from the spice profile typical of the style..getting some coriander..nutmeg..finishes nicely with a bit of density..kudos to any saison in a can...

11.2 oz can. I got a floral scent from the beer. The beer poured with a good head. Golden in color and very hazy. It had a bitter taste, but nothing overpowering. Fizzy carbonation and medium body. I’m not a big fan of saisons, but this was a good beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not too funky a nose: just some hay and citrus, and maybe a dash of salt. Hazy yellow with gelatinous suspension. Flavor is more tart than indicated scent wise, although more like a kolsch or hefe than a regular saison. That being said it’s incredibly refreshing, mine is a can but one could easily crush a 750 while raking leaves or something. Basic beer from the heavy duty brewer Friart.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber bottle poured to glass. White thick head over slightly hazy yellow body. A bit of hay and mildew in the nose but not an aggressively funky saison. Enjoyable. Probably a good first step for someone wanting to try out a barnyard accented saison.

Bière orangée avec un haut col de mousse banche et crémeuse. Nez de levure, citron et brioche. Belle équilibre entre la levure et l’e houblon. Une saison bien réussie.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fragrant leafy nose. Pretty typical saison. Cloudy gold with a creamy white head. I suppose that this is a beer you could drink all night or walk on past.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle into a tulip, pours a deep orange/gold with some suspended yeast and a huge 4 finger head. Aroma is the expected saison smells - funky yeast, orange zest, coriander, cloves. Taste is initially a little more astringent than some others (eg, Saison DuPont), but is then balanced nicely by a caramel sweetness before a good dry finish. All the expected yeast, grain and spice flavours are there. Fairly light feel in the mouth but smooth as it goes down. Overall, a pretty good standard saison and one I'll seek out again, given its cheap price at my local Dan Murphy's.

11.2 oz slim can. Thanks, brenn79! Aroma is peppery, dusty, cheesy, doughy. Pours hazy cantaloupe with lots of floaties under a collapsing white head. Taste is sweet, savory, peppery, spices. Medium body, fine carbonation. Excellent Saison.
