solidfunk (8949) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Another good saison. Past month started off with a series of bad Ontario saisons and finished with trying some great Quebec stuff. Smells fruity, fermented orange juice. Wild yeast. Pours cloudy blond. Taste has some tartness. Bottle from Peluso. Johnsense (1669) - - MAR 30, 2013
Cloudy gold pour, huge head. Aroma of funk, cloves, very yeasty. Taste is reminiscent of a tripel, belgian yeast, clove, slight pepper, banana, saison barnyard funk. Fairly tart. Getting lots of rye as well. Medium body. I’ll call is a saison hybrid, and one thats very refreshing after a long day of runnng errands. lesifflebiere (1887) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 14, 2013
Blonde tirant sur le cuivré, avec quelques morceaux de levure en suspension ; un peu de mousse blanche crémeuse. Au nez, elle rappelle une blanche : une touche de bananes et de céréales blondes. Le côté saison ressort vraiment en bouche, avec une gorgée toute en épices et en fruits jaunes, avec du poivre délicat qui ferme la marche. On croirait même à du piment vert. Savoureuse et complexe, après une introduction quelconque, elle sort de l’ordinaire dans ce style de plus en plus intéressant. Idiosynkrasie (7516) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 31, 2014
750ml bottle. Slightly cloudy, golden colour with huge, frothy, fully lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Fruity hoppy aroma has hints of apricot and peach, hints of rye, vegetable, unripe pear, spicy yeasty overtones. Taste is fruity, hints of apricot and peach, minimally peppery, spicy yeasty overtones; subtle tartness. Soft, gentle, micro pored, nevertheless sustainable carbonation for excellent palate. Superbly balanced, thoughtful crafted. laiti (8468) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 28, 2015

2008-05-31. Crisp golden body with a nice foamy off-white head. (3+) Aroma is mild, light alcohol kissed grass, hops. (6+) Pleasant zippy bitterness alludes to lemons, mild grass, pale malt. More lemon and grass in the finish lingers pleasantly. (7+) Smooth average palate suits the beer. Decent but not my favorite of their offerings. 6/4/7/3/15 - 3.5 On tap, Mondial, Montreal, 4T

A sour/tart nose with a hint of yeast. Cloudy orange/golden with a minimal white head. Taste is sour fruit, yellow plums, white grapefruit and starfruit come to mind. Light bodied, very well balanced, complex, tart, dry and most refreshing. Terrific. radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 11, 2009
Clear golden orange in colour with a thin white coloured head, light lacing. The aroma was of oranges, lemons, some spice, bread and yeast. The flavour has some grapefruit, moderate bitterness, lots of citrus, yeast, must and a bit of brett. Lightly bitter mouthfeel, medium body, medium/high carbonation. Finishes bitter, with yeast and spice.
This didn’t have as much grapefruit as the Station 10 that I just had but was a bit more intense in the flavour. Moderate amounts of alcohol at times, quite refreshing.
Draught at Mondial 2008, Montreal, Quebec.
