MartinT (9765) - Montreal, Quebec, - JUN 8, 2012
My Bottom Line :
Dry and citrusy, this Saison quickly moves into herbal hops and its brett-y flavor brethren for a quenching pint.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A slice of foam covers the hazy blonde.
-This isnt a complex Saison, but it is highly enjoyable.
-Carbonation could be fluffier.
-The finish is lightly tart and bitter.
-Bottle conditioning would do wonders to this brew; this tap serving just doesnt achieve the same mouthfeel.

On tap at the brewpub.

Overheard: "He told me how to pronounce it." "So I need to invoke more apathy and disdain?"

jercraigs (10303) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2013
2013-05-31. Hazy golden yellow orange body with a modest white head. Aroma is spicey, sort of grainy wheat character. Flavour is bizarre melange of spice and fruit, light bitterness, odd tangy quality to it. Almost lychee like character? 6+ Grows on me a bit after an off putting first sip. Average bodied palate, soft carbonation. 3+ Okay, still a bit odd. Perplexing. On tap at Mondial de la Biere 2013, Montreal

On tap @ Benelux (Montral). Unclear golden/orange with a small white head and light lacing. Aroma of spices, Saison yeast, acidic notes and herbal presence. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet with malt, acidic notes and coriander finish. Medium body. Soft to medium carbonation. Ok Saison, but not one I would buy again.

Oakes (17158) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2012
"Belette Brett". Slightly bretty and with some gluey malts. Light fruity and dry character. Decent balance, and will improve as the brett chews into the extra malts.

Bov (12637) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 20, 2012
[email protected] - hazy blond beer with a poor head retention; a bit yeasty and fairly grapefruity; fairly acidic; a rather thin malt backbone; quite dry fruity and yeasty finish with more brett-like reminiscence - refreshing and very drinkable

Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 5, 2012
Draft at the brewpub. Hazed gold. Aroma not bretty, maybe it hasnt matured yet? Has soft white fruit, mangosteen and kumquat skin and pith. Soft and healthy palate in which the Brett emerged. Dry, yay! Meaty with passionfruit, but not tart. Dry, clean, refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
