On tap at Vices & Versa, Montreal on 4th July 2017. Hazy amber with almost white foam and full lacing. Spicy, yeasty aroma. Rich and intense spicy hoppiness in-mouth with tart apricot and plum notes. Nuttiness in evidence - hazelnut. A very satisfying bitter finish. Full-bodied with an engaging mouthfeel. This beer is exquisite. tom10101 (6138) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 22, 2017
On tap on premise. Clear bright golden with a small-medium white head, good retention, leaving good lacing. Aroma is of peppery/spicy yeast with fun farmhouse notes, lovely herbalness, citrus and honeyed cereals. Taste is peppery with honeyed cereals, a very mild acidity that suits the farmhouse character perfectly, resinous notes but very little bitterness. Medium body. Good-bright carbonation. Fluffy mouthfeel. Peppery and fruity finish, dry. This is a great Belgian Saison that hits all the right buttons. Very high drinkability. The yeast is showcased really well. Carbonation and mouthfeel are exactly as they should be. Fantastic stuff! czar (9172) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 21, 2017
