Bottle @ ZZT9 shared by joes. Hazy orange colour with a huge white head. Smells fruity, fresh, yeasty, quite nice. Tastes fruity, fresh, apricot, sweet, love it. Medium body, soft carbo. TimE (5808) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 6, 2012
Clear golden color, with moderately peppery nose with a hint of funk. Mouth is nice and dry, but lacked much complexity. Well balanced and well made, but really lacking funk that I need in a saison. Still very drinkable and very sessionable. JulienHuxley (5804) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2012
Bottle. Very clear gold pour, white head. Aroma is peppery, saison yeast, grassy hops, fresh bread, a light stone fruit aroma is present as well. Quite classic saison, well done. Flavor is bitter, lots of grainy, husky, barley flavors with fresh pepper and a hoppy finale. Palate is good, well carbed, quite refreshing but with a nice full body. Very glad to see them finally bottle one of their saisons, I’m of the opinion that these guys know this style well. SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2012
Saison Charlevoix : Une bouteille offerte par Yan. Merci! Une bière dorée et sa mousse increvable. Une dentelle comme un relief montagneux. Un nez de levure et de houblons frais avec la naissance de notes fruitées. Des saveurs céréalières savoureuses avec des herbes et des fleurs vivifiantes. Une levure campagnarde qui fait belle figure. Un corps assez rond avec un pétillement qui répond au style et une texture plutôt accaparante. Une finale sur la levure avec des notes légèrement piquantes. Une saison très agréable à boire.

Draught @ Vices & Versa, Montréal. Pours clear golden with small white head. Clear aroma of malt and hops, with notes of needles and herbs. Sweetish, malty flavour with bitter hints of hops and some bready touches. Sweetish and hoppy aftertaste. Come on, is this a Saison? It tastes like a Heller Bock. Drinkable but nothing really special.

Draft at mondial. Hazy honey gold, luscious head and lace. Aroma is floral, spritzy, and light. Orange blossom. Balanced--floral without being perfumed, fresh and friendly bitterness. Light, cheerful, solid.

Big bottle. I thought this was really good. Not jus Saoson funk but stronger malt than usual and a hint of caramel underneath a beer with strong "typical" Sason qualities. _angst_ (4802) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle bought @ bierkompass.de. Pours hazy reddish golden with a huge frothy and tiny fizzy offwhite head that slowly dissipates while leaving lots of sticky trace on the glass. Smell is estery, slightly phenolic and slightly floral with biscuits, banana bread, hay, dry soil, white pepper corns, persimmon, dry wood and hints of lemon zest and sheet metal. Taste is tiny sweet, slightly bitter, estery and phenolic with white bread, ripe banana, black and white pepper corns, almonds, sheet metal, hay, dry soil, minerals, paper, pears and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is slightly watery, slightly dry, slightly astringent and light bodied. Finish is bitter, estery and phenolic with white bread, unripe banana, pepper corns, sheet metal, pears, almonds, hay, minerals and lemon zest. Bit too heavy on the metal phenols and banana esters… Habanero (4668) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2014
Tap. Deep golden body with an average off-white head. Aroma of caramel, citrus fruits, grain and wheat. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and slightly bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonaition. A very nice Saison indeed. robinvboyer (4651) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 28, 2013
