UXO (1827) - CANADA - MAR 15, 2017
Appearance: murky red with one finger of fluffy pinkish head diminishing gradually to a thin cap, no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: tart raspberry, light yeast. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high tart, light bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium-light body, lively to moderate carbonation, off-dry tart and lightly funky finish. (3/5) Framboise? Absolutely. Saison? Ehhh not so much. Raspberry utterly dominates, which isnt a bad thing, particularly since its neither overly sweet nor artificial in character. But theres very little Saison character here - if any, to be honest. Theres the merest hint of funk in the finish, but is almost indistinguishable from the yeast notes. On the other hand, it remains pleasant and balanced to the very last drop, which starts to look like a strawberry milkshake towards the end of the second glass! OK, if perhaps a touch pricey.

Fred82 (2257) - Qubec City, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 12, 2017
750ml bottle from the brewpub. Pours pale red with pink-ish head. Nose raspberries, raspberry leaves, light yeast. Taste raspberries with yeast. Finish fruity raspberries with light yeast. Raspberry leaves. Very light acidity. Not that complex but fairly enjoyable. Quite drinkable. Carbonation very soft. A bit too soft for a saison. All on all nice beer.

dfearnley (2010) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 27, 2016
Bottle to tulip Consummation: Sour, yeasty raspberry with some orange peel and malt Adjunct: Raspberry is more subtle in the aroma and the malt character is more pronounced along with a overripe/sour/rotting apple; translucent reddish amber with a creamy pink head, with little retention, moderate effervescence, and no lacing

Oakes (17002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2016
Bottle, Legacy. Red-pink colour, and a pinkish head. Cloudy. Has a strong raspberry nose, touch of lactic, no particular saison character. Tart on the palate with mellow raspberries and a bit of yeastiness. Again, lacks both saison character and complexity. Jammy finish. Not saying its bad, but its not an upper echelon fruit beer.

patricks110 (2468) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 25, 2016
Delightful fruit brew. Pours a murky pink with steady carbonation and a thin off white/pinkish head. The nose is delicate, raspberries abound with almost nothing else evident. Not sweet at all with a fresh taste, light tartness, a pinch of pepper, light citrus note, crisp and refreshing. Very well done brew!

reebtogi (6149) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 23, 2016
750ml capped bottle pours a murky pink color with a finger of off-white head that leaves only a few specks of lacing on the glass. Aroma is fresh raspberries with a mild funk and citrus. Taste is a raspberry tartness with a fruity and malty sweetness and light citrus bitterness. Light to medium bodied with abundant carbonation that tickles the tongue. Overall, a pleasant saison made even better with the addition of the fresh raspberries. Recommended.

beerplace (1501) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 29, 2016
On tap at Darbys Gastown. Pours a clody rose color with a white head. Aroma is raspberry and sugary notes. Taste is not so sweet as aroma, but with good noticeable hoppy bitterness. Fruity, hoppy bitterness aftertaste. Refreshing and delicious.

2016-08-27, draught at Darbys Gastown, Vancouver, as Dunham Raspberry Saison, 6-3-6-3-12=30
Opaque pink-red color, compact head. Mild aroma of raspberry yogurt. Dry and smooth mouthfeel, moderately sour, mild raspberry flavor, some yeast, some woody bitterness in the final (typical of raspberries), and light astringency.
Ok beer.

2016-01-25, draught at St. Augustines, Vancouver, 6-3-7-3-14=33
Murky light red color. It has a strong fruity character from the raspberry, and therefore some acidity; the spicy yeast is not too strong, its a disturbing element anyway, doesnt fit in the picture. It seems to be highly carbonated.
Overall, a nice fruity sour. And well made, bold.

Beerstore (29) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 25, 2016
Je semble toujours tomb dans le pige anticip un produit trs sure lorsquil contient de la framboise ou des baies. Ce nest certainement pas le cas de celle-ci qui prsente un got de framboise trs doux et trs peu acidul. Cest trs bon, peu amre et on ne goute pas du tout ses 6.5% dalcool. Jen suis meme arriv a regrett son absence de kick surette, mais il y a la Solstice dt de dieu du ciel pour a. Alors je prfere clbr leurs differences avec ce produit simple et dlicieux
