jercraigs (10303) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2012
2012-06-07. Hazy orange body with a nice off-white head. Pleasant flavour, nice bitterness, light estery fruit, light zippy peppery spice. 7+ Aroma is similar, mild peppery spice character, muted pale malt below. 7+ Average plus palate is fairly carbonated, pleasantly so. Really nice! On tap at Mondial, Montreal

DuffMan (10148) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle, shared with guests,(but I will be getting more to have all to myself). Pale yellow, hazy, with a towering bubbly head that shows excellent retention. Aroma is yeasty, spicy, maybe some hay, I dont know-- I just want to drink it! Lovely profile that balances yeast, spice, and hops to create a delicate palate of flavours including chamomile, lemon peel, hay, light dough, and white pepper. Beautifully composed, refreshing, so nice. Man these guys can brew beer!

KyotoLefty (10125) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 16, 2013
Tap at Hoppy Loft. Lemony, grainy, rich nose. Pretty deep golden color. Lemony, wheaty, creamy flavor. Nicely tangy, with orange. A bit too rich and malty for a saison, but a good beer.

olio (10064) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2014
75 cl bottle.
Pours clear pale golden color with a large head. Spicy herbal aroma with earth and some fruits. Strong carbonation, yeast, toffee, and fruits on the flavor, mild spice notes and some hay. Balanced and tasty, hoped for more though.

sebletitje (9954) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 5, 2013
Draft @ Delirium. Dore sur un lger trouble, col blanc pais. Arme prsente ce ct grains rappelant la drche avec un ct levure et note de pomme. Malt discret et je note ici, un ct subtile de malt fum tirant sur la bacon? ainsi que dun grain spcial tirant sur lpeautre. Palais est malt moyen, levure distincte avec encore une fois un possible mais minimal ajout fum? Les houblons procurent un profil citronn suivi de suite par un malt ple-caramel. Note aussi un fruit presque pomme et qcq esters qui pour moi est bizarre pour une saison. Linspiration belge se fait prsente avec une fin de bouche offrant un rsiduel grain auquel je naccroche pas. Reste nanmoins correcte.

MartinT (9765) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2017 My Bottom Line :
This intricate Saisons display of flavors pleases at every sip, showing off spicy hops, doughy yeast, orangey fruitiness and bready malts coalescing into a herbal hop finish awash in fluffy natural effervescence.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A fluffy head of foam settles atop the cloudy golden.
-This is intelligently spiced.
-Drinkability is sky high, as is authenticity.
-Citrusy angles appear here and there, and herbal hop bitterness develops with every sip. Perfect dosage, imho.
-Some batches have been more vegetal than others.
-This is not the kind of Saison that will explode onto your palate with tons of spices or hops; it is a nicely balanced one with an authentic flavor profile and mouthfeel which is meant to be quenching. Great job, Charlevoix!

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2012
Tap at Toronto Fest of Beer. Pale golden pour. The nose is a little bit spicy and peppery. Some sweet pale malt and a little bit of soft honeyed sweetness. A little bit of lightly fruity flavour. A little bit sweet and chewy. Its okay - but not great. Fairly honeyed.

Sampled draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft during Zwanze Day shenanigans. Rating the same version as sebletitje, I assume that this is the correct entry. Clear (sigh) golden with a white head. Smells sweet, sugary, cereal and some light grass. Sweet taste, white bread malt, sweet cornflakes with white sugar, grains, bitter hay and bitter floral and grass finish. Uber-simple, sweet and almost macro-fare styled. Light & fizzy, I didnt care at all for this one & too much stuff like white sugar cornflakes in here. No idea what happened here, I think that I like saisons & the ratings are very good here. Maybe a bad keg? Worn by travel? Or I am just not getting it. (Thx! for sharing people!)

14/IX/13 - on tap @ Hoppy Loft (Delirium caf, Brussels) - BB: n/a (2013-850) Thanks to KyotoLefty for sharing the beer!

Clear pale amber beer, creamy off-white head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: ripe fruits, bit funky, cultivated bretta, dairy, hay. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: metallic, grassy bitterness, dairy, funky, hay, weird touch, some marzipan. Aftertaste: funky, little sweet, floral, hay, pretty bitter and dry. I cant help myself but I have the impression that this brewery is overly hyped. Ive had several of the Dominus Vobiscum series, and none were as good as their RB scores would like you to think.
