Thanks Tom10101. Aroma has a medium pear and citrus aroma with moderate spice nots of coriander and pepper. Light graininess with a hint of honey. Slightly floral. Pours a fairly cloudy hay color with a fairly large pillowy white head. Really nice head retention leaving behind medium high lacing but no legs. Flavor is somewhat sweet with some light graininess and some honey upfront. Some light lemongrass along with citrus and grapes. Some low herbal spice along with coriander and pepper. Light bitterness along with a light noble hop character. Some lingering honey, spice and light tropical fruit esters in the finish with a medium low floral character. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied and fairly soft with a slight creaminess. Medium to medium high carbonation along with low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall a fairly enjoyable saison of a cleaner style. Nice blend of spices, phenolics, esters and malt and all done rather cleanly without one overpowering the other. I am fairly impressed with this beer and it delicate interplay of flavors. It also has a very nice mouthfeel to it with a soft but crisp nature.

Boutip (6273) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 20, 2013
Bottle: Poured a hazy dirty yellow color ale with a large foamy head with great retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of peppery yeast with some rustic malt and lightly sweet notes. Taste is also a superb mix of peppery yeast with some rustic malt notes and lightly sweet honey notes that are also perceptible. Rye malt are also noticeable and provide a bit of spicy/peppery notes. Body is full with medium carbonation. Incredibly well brewed with great level of drinkability.

Bouteille achete la brasserie. Bire dore surmonte dune paisse mousse blanche affichant une excellente tenue. Elle offre un nez de seigle, de fleurs, de miel, de pain et de miel. En bouche, elle est bien sche et dvoile une belle complexit avec la prsence du seigle et des autres crales. Le miel est galement prsent, tout comme des notes pices et une touche de houblon. Une excellente saison.

Marheb (5709) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 28, 2014
Un liquide limpide aux allures de champagne mais avec une mousse qui simpose et sinstalle avec confiance. L"rome est un amalgame dlicat de grasses crales, miel floral et pices tirant vers le poivre particulirement. La texture est vraiment unique et probablement lattrait le plus allchant, un croisement entre moelleux et sirupeux en gardant laspect dlgance qui la caractrise. On sent physiquement les sucres mais gustativement cest le mystre, la finale est sche et poivre et lamertume assez volatile. Une petite bire qui ne se boit pas si facilement. Intriguante cration.

750ml bottle. Cloudy straw in colour with a large and long lasting white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is of citrus, floral hops, honey, pepper and grains. The flavour is floral with some grains, yeasty, honey sweetness, cereal. Sweet mouthfeel, medium body, high carbonation. Finishes long, sweet. A very delicate beer this. Excellent honey sweetness with good malt balance. Another excellent beer from Dunham.

On tap at bateau de nuit. Hazy pale yellow pour with thin white head. Delicate honey aroma, light wheat, saison yeast, grassy hops and peppery rye - beautiful. Taste is light, crisp, toasty grain flavors, light citrusy wheatiness/yeast very fresh. Palate is dry, well carbed but still silky, extremely quenching. I hope they make this available in pint bottles, in six packs.

En ft quelque part en avril Dunham et, cette fois-ci, en bouteille de 75 cl. Une robe jaune-dore et une majestueuse mousse blanche immacule qui laisse un rideau coll sur la paroi de mon verre. Un nez peupl par des choses jaunes et par de petites fleurs blanches, par une fracheur cralire piquante et par de dlicates effluves de poire et de citron. Mes papilles prennent un malin plaisir dcouvrir des houblons aux dents acrs, des crales mordantes et des notes citronnes qui suintent une doucereuse acidit. Sur le palais, le liquide laisse une trs belle impression. Son corps est lger, bien gonfl par les bulles et surprend par sa texture pleinement crmeuse. Une finale pleinement habite par des choses vivantes et justement amres: comment ne pas aimer cette rumeur bretteuse entendue dans les houblons?

hangunder (305) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2015
Smells great, quite funky (horseblanket) with whisps of honey in the nose. Light malt. Golden colored, hazy, minimal head. Tastes nice but not overly complex, a bit of funk, finishing with a gentle honey sweetness and slightly bitter hops. Nicely balanced and good restraint shown with the addition of honey. Light/medium bodied and average carbonation.

Bottle (750 ml). Slightly hazy yellow/golden with a medium fully lasting white head and intense lacing. Beautiful beer. Aroma of cereals, honey, Saison yeast and light spices. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet with cereals, honey and light spices. Medium body. Dry. Crisp. Good carbonation. Very good Saison! Its refreshing, drinkable, but its not a light beer by any mean. Very interesting!
