A hazed amber ale with a thin lacing white head. In aroma, a nice mix of lemon, fruits, & smooth brett, pleasing. In mouth, a smooth silky fruity malt with clover and brett, grassy and citrusy, well done. DuffMan (10930) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 3, 2013
Bottle. Hazy medium gold, thickly lacing white head. Light tangerine peel and doughy yeast, wheaty malts, peppery finish. Not terribly complex, but a dry yeasty ale that hit the spot regardless. MartinT (10239) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2012
My Bottom Line : solidfunk (9795) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Caramel sweetness decorates candied oranges and leafy, vegetal leanings in this otherwise doughy example.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sheet of foam covers the misty dark amber.
-The nose is rather cake-like and evokes a sweeter brew than it really is.
-Yeast is slightly rustic, adding dusty angles.
-Body is bulky for the style.
-This may not be the most traditional of examples, but at least it is not one of those overly spiced New World versions.
Doesn’t smell like much, a little grass. Taste has a little sourness, a little grass. A tiny bit of bubblegum. A very light beer - could almost be a lager, it’s not very well done for the style. There’s sourness in the aftertaste as well. Pours blond, decent lacing. There’s a little fruitiness I guess. On tap at Saint Bock. czar (9680) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 13, 2012

Draught at Mondial de la Bière 2012, June 8. Pours a deep copper with an average size lasting frothy off-white head. Aroma is yeasty, tart and herbal. Flavour of yeast, ginger, herbs and spices. Average bodied. Pretty good Saison. Ernest (7914) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 24, 2017
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), light hoppy (herbs, flowers), lightly yeasty (cobwebs, basement), with notes of gum, pepper. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Strikes me as more of a plain Belgian blonde ale, but clean and not overly sweet or estery, so that’s nice. mansquito (7277) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Some store: bottle poured into plastic cup. Pours bubbly golden with a white head. Aroma is peppery, slightly funky, and quite fruity. Taste is similar: spicy, a bit sweet, and dry. This was a pretty run of the mill saison to my mind. Good. Boutip (6664) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 11, 2012
Draft: Poured a dark amber color ale with an average size foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of residual sugar with light rustic malt notes is OK. Taste is a mix of residual sugar with light rustic malt notes and limited ester. Body is about average with good carbonation. Lacking complexity and ester with plain caramel and sugar coming through a bit too much; probably not something I will seek again.
