Brassé pour la 12e édition de la Bondial de la Bière (2005). Un très bon mélamge d’épice et d’orange. À reboire si possible. mds (2256) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2005
draught. golden body, slight cloudy haze with a small white head. spicy, peppery nose, a fair amount of yeast. flavour is sweet and fruity with touches of yeasty dustiness and spice. very flavourful and a great thirst quencher...just how I like my saisons. tiggmtl (4543) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2005
Musty though light notes of barnyard and hay in the lightly spicy aroma. Hazy, oily, golden body is topped by a fluffy white head that recedes slowly with plenty of lacing. Wheaty, musty flavour with herbal, hay-like hop notes and a light barnyard character has some notable alcohol in the finish. Fair bitterness and floral notes in the finish become more prominent as it warms. Medium-light body with moderate carbonation is somewhat slick and a touch oily. Sampled at Mondial de la Bière 2005.

On draught at the Mondial, 6/3/2005. Orange-golden-copper. Lightly hazy, full white, lasting head, with good lacing. Smells of musty, sweaty yeast, outdone by a crips, yet plant-like spiciness. Coriander stalks is what I always think of. Flavor is coriander and green, juicy plants. Fresh spiciness, with light hops bitterness, very green and chewy. Very doughy, though not bready or rough in any way. Medium-full bodied, ending malty sweet and quite yeasty. Moderate carbonation amply provides pleasing texture. Much yeast lingers on the finish. No alcohol detected in my samples.

Tap. Golden copper in colour with a thin white head with good retention, lingering lace. The aroma was earthy, lightly spiced, herbal, very light sourness, some grass. The flavour was of fruit (green apples, oranges), herbal-grassy-floral hops, some barnyard as well. There was an assertive tangyness lingering in the mouth but at the same time a very refreshing mouthfeel. Medium body, high carbonation. FInishes with a lingering citric bitterness. Not to bad at all. Volgon (2761) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 22, 2005
MdlB05: Lightly cloudy yellow with a small white head, spicy straw in the aroma, medium body, gritty texture, lightly acidic and sweet, with a long aftertaste. MartinT (10102) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 2, 2005

Thriving straw and grass lift the oranges and miscellaneous leaves. Milky sweetness and herbal hoppiness welcome the grain.
Freshly-cut grass offers a pleasant bitterness. A dry, hoppy ending is predicted and given, preceded by clean malt sweetness and white pepper-like spiciness. Quite laid back and pleasantly medium-flavored, perfect for a session.
Lazy trainspotting, yet smiling contently all the while.
