3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fruity nose with a spice interplay, really, really nice! Not so much brett upfront, but its dry palate from the first sip leaves no one wondering that it is there. Good bitterness, not out of place in a tasty beer like this one. Mouthfeel and carbonation are fine, nothing to say about them at least. Flavors of fruits again, not sure I would pick pomegranate as the culprit but they are obviously red. I would drink this regularly, even more so if it develops a little more on the brett front... wouldn’t that be great? Imagine a fruitier Orval now!
A sweet and fruity leaning saison, but I get more berry than any maple here. Light pepper and funk, a little sour on the back end. Fragrant. Nice, but not a standout. Ferris (16493) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 22, 2017
Bottle - Light funk and some darker fruit. Cloudy gold with a frothy white head. Light sour and tartness, plums and dry red fruit. Dry finish with a touch of sour notes. DuffMan (10664) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 8, 2017
Bottle, shared at Superbowl Party. Hazy medium orange, lively off white head. Cranberry tartness and dryness (I know, it’s pomegranate but whatever), lightly spicy and funky. Nice. RhetoricalAns (973) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 26, 2016
Lightly hazed copper pour, finger of white head with excellent retention and lacing. Mix of sweet fruit, and funky yeast aroma. Could be pomegrabite but comes across cherry. Lightly spiced tastepepper with a good amount od brett sourness and funk. Medium body and livly carbonation. robinvboyer (4750) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 20, 2016
Murky orange pour, with a large off white head. Aroma is is fruity, and tangy, with some nice pepper notes, and subtle herbs and hints of lemon grass. Nice mouth feel, soft carb. Finish is slightly tart, and grassy, with alot of stone fruit and lactic tart notes.

Consummation: Apricot, lime, cherry and yeast
Adjunct: A boozy, tangerine, apricot, lime, turpentine; clear amber with a thin white head and no lacing; Oakes (18756) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 10, 2016
Amber, bit dull and hazy. No head. This is a bit fruity, plasticy. Not great...phenols...this is a bit faulty. beerplace (2036) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 5, 2016
On tap at St. Augustine’s during 1st 45 taps annual event with Alex and Josh. Pours a slightly hazy golden with some white head. Aroms is sweet, fruity, spices (from regular Saison). Taste is pretty the same. Very interesting and quite unusual saison because of fruity notes. Pleasant. reebtogi (6378) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 5, 2016
750ml capped bottle pours amber in color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is cherries (not getting pomegranate) with some caramel and hints of yeast. Taste is a cherry tartness with a malty sweetness with some spicy and yeasty notes in the finish. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, quite sweet and fruity for the style, should be more tart, otherwise this is a tasty brew that I recommend for others to try. Adamsville (390) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 26, 2016
Apparence : Dorée orange aux reflets jaunes, belle mousse blanche, carbonatation élevée et rapide, belle dentelle.
Nez : Poire et pêche, agrumes, aspects floraux, poivrée. Les brett sont aussi évoquées en trame de fond sous forme de paille et de boisé légers.
Goût : Poire et pêche, céréales et malt avec une touche sucrée, peut-être mielleuse, petite touche d’alcool.
Sensation : Corps mince, effervescence élevée, piquant sur la langue et au palais, finale bien sèche avec une petite amertume marquée, légère chaleur d’alcool.
Bref : Bière intéressante où les levures dictent le bal : les fruits présents, le poivré de la levure saison, très atténuée au corps mince, un petit côté rustique des brett sans être dominant… Peut-être pas la plus intense, ni la plus complexe, mais intéressante.
