Draught at Birrerria Volo. Pale yellow with finely bubbled white head. Light warm aroma of lemon and straw and some Brett, hint of something sweet like bubblegum perhaps. Extremely smooth mouthfeel. Mildly sweet lemon and straw, again with that trace of bubblegum (this sounds like it might be gross, but its awesome).

Hazy yellow, thick fluffy white head, aroma is lemons and crackery malt. Fruity taste more lemons, dry peppery finish some light Brett funk. Medium body high carbonation. Great saison!

MartinT (9590) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2012
UPDATED: APR 1, 2016 My Bottom Line:
This authentic Saison lays out citrusy fruitiness and a persistent herbal hop bitterness in a dry, comfy, and very drinkable vehicle.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sizeable head of foam stays atop the misty straw gold.
-The mouthfeel is nicely dry and airy.
-Light esters are found after a while.
-Cant say I would have detected the rye and oats if they hadnt been on the label, but the spiciness is obvious once noted.
-The flavor profile is intricate yet rustic. Dunham are now Saison masters, no doubt. This is absolutely delicious.

Bottles.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2015 Une petite robe dore qui laisse transparatre un voile. Une petite tte blanche qui ne rsiste pas. Un nez touch par une certaine rusticit. Des moments qui ne sont jamais sucrs. Des mouvements qui sont marqus par les herbes et par les pices. Je souponne le bl et la levure. Des saveurs contrles par des herbes amres. Une levure qui se dvoile en toute finesse. Des malts ples qui sont tranquilles. Des dtonations florales qui sexcutent en amertume. Un fruit fantomatique. Une bouche lgre, drlement remue par les bulles. Une finale amre conjugue par les houblons et par les pices.// Une autre bouteille bue hier. Belle touche citronne, levure dunhamienne, bretts, houblons vivants, extrme buvabilit, conditionnement sublime, trs sche. Une rflexion: pourquoi faire 5 heures de route pour aller chez Hill quand on a dans notre cour arrire les meilleurs exemples du style?

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2016 Updated rating A: herbacy, pepper, lemon, a touch of leather App: hazy blond big lasting white head with good lacing. T/p: thin to med body with short acidic finish.. Moderate high carbonation. O: pretty good. highly drinkable. Dunham is capable of brewing great saison and this one is for me the best of their lineup.

Bottle from Tom10101, thanks! Aroma is fairly phenolic with pepper, coriander and lemongrass. Moderate citrus note with some light pear and floral esters. Pours a slightly cloudy very pale yellow with a thick, pillowy white head that slowly recedes but has fairly good retention. Faint legs with moderate esters. Flavor has a light sweetness with a nice citrus note upfront. Some light graininess and oat flavor. Medium light spice nor s of pepper and coriander; the spice is lighter than in the aroma. Hints of floral esters and medium pear note. Medium bitterness, but fairly smooth. Very faint floral hop flavor. The finish has a touch of lingering bitterness as well as a hint of pepper. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Water has a nice soft character to it and adds a nice dimension to the beer. Overall another very enjoyable Saison from our brothers to the north. The water quality reminds me of Hill Farmstead and the phenolics and esters are well balanced. I personally enjoy my saisons with a bit of funk, but this is a nice clean one.

En ft au Vices & Versa en compagnie de Ju-Lo. Bire ple, peu mousseuse, moyennement trouble et laissant sur mon verre de jolies dentelles dun blanc clatant. Un nez qui mon avis nest pas la hauteur des saveurs: jy note des houblons frais, verts et herbacs, du foin mouill et de la ferme, le tout dans un bouquet olfactif assez discret. Un mouthfeel trs intressant, o les quelques notes pices que jy retrouve ponctuent la texture gnralement soyeuse du liquide dune touche intrigante. Aux houblons bien frais et prsents, sajoute le magnifique travail dune jeune crale frachement rcolte. Il est rare que je donne 10 pour les saveurs, mais cette bire le mrite amplement tant lquilibre entre les ingrdients de base est sublime. Jaurais facilement pu passer la soire entire boire des pintes te des pintes de ce dlicieux breuvage!

750ml bottle. Pale golden-yellow in colour with a very thin white head, light lacing. The aroma is of lemons, some malt, spices, pepper. The flavour is of pepper, yeast, floral hops, grassy. Lightly bitter mouthfeel, full body, high carbonation. Finishes long, peppery, spicy. Another really good beer from Dunham.
