COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with malted barley & wheat, this dark farmhouse ale is fermented with a blend of Saccharomyces & Brettanomyces yeasts. Spicey & piney hop varieties complement subtle roast & tobacco character derived from dark specialty malts. Fermented very dry with wild yeast, this Saison will pair well with a variety of robust foods including grilled meats, strong cheeses and spicey Asian cuisine.////// Brassée avec de l’orge malté et du blé, cette Saison foncée est fermentée avec un mélange de levures Saccharomyces et Brettanomyces. Des houblons épicés et résineux se lient à des saveurs grillées et de tabac provenant du malt de spécialité. De nature très sèche grâce à l’apport des levures sauvages, cette Saison s’accordera avec des saveurs robustes, incluant de la viande grillée, des fromages forts et des plats asiatiques bien relevés.

sulawang (1217) - - MAY 12, 2017
Visual: Pours beer bottle dark brown with a small 1mm super long-lasting foamy head, scattered singular tight steady micro streams.

Nose: light peaty-rubbery smoked malts, background brightness. (lvl-6)-pungency

Attack: dry crisp, brown sugar malt impression

Mid-palate: light tingly (lvl-2-sweetness), background subtle tangy, slight funk’d dry roasted barley malt

Finish: coriander-mild piney subtle bitter, residual grainy wheat malts.

Summary: A really interesting beer combining the light and dark; Bright saison wheatness with the roasted barley - very good transitions and flawless integration. Can’t say I’ll have another but I’m glad I had this one.

DuffMan (10936) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 1, 2017
Bottle, shared with Parksy and others. Medium brown, lively beige head. Funky, leathery brett with light earthy and bready malts. Finish is bone dry. A brett bomb, but I liked it.

Oakes (19569) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 5, 2017
Medium brown, pours bright, and has a medium head. The aroma shows some darker fruits, along with some brett. Cocoa notes on the palate, touch of raisin, touch of brett, and it’s a bit yeasty. Not my type of beer, and not good enough to overcome that.

Metalchopz (3709) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 27, 2016
Pours a dark amber-copper colour with a beige cap that is big, lasting a while and with good lacing. Funky aromas of the Brett yeast with some roasted barley, giving caramel notes. Earthy with some sourness, even in the taste. The roasted malt lingers with light tart. The dark aspect of this brew adds nicely to the Brett funk.

plaugher (510) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 4, 2016
500ml bottle into a tulip.Deep brown, foamy beige head which dissipates into thin pale ring. Big Brett nose, caramel, tobacco, dark fruit, some tobacco; a bit sour (but not in line the amount of funk in the nose), pine finish. Really quite thin on the palate. Curious, complex nose not matched by the flavour, sadly.

This is an interesting beer: it's good for a saison b/c the sourness, but it's well below avg for a sour beer. In the end it lands somewhere in between okay and good. Woody mild sourness is how I would describe it. Bottle from Sherbrook. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HippyHop (728) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 18, 2016
Kind of on the fence with this one. There's some really nice stuff going on here: leathery Brett and tobacco, toasted malt, caramel and dark fruit. Hop presence is nonexistent but this stuff was also bottled in February. I think I drank this in a dead zone where the hops have had time to fade, but the Brett/flavours haven't had enough time to develop. I like the funk and the tobacco, the dark fruit and toasted grain, but I feel like there's a watery hole in the middle. This beer has me all fucked up. Will have to try again when my brain is less addled - ideally with a fresh bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

J’ai été vraiment surpris par celle-ci. C’est tourbeux, juste assez acide et étrangement fumé. Chapeau pour l’innovation, c’est super bien fait! Aucunement conventionnel mais tout est tellement bien intégré.

D’une bouteille à des verres. La couleur est à peine plus foncée qu’un cola. Le nez est particulièrement intéressant. On y retrouve le côté épicé des saisons, le funky des Bretts, mais aussi un brin de sucre et de chocolat, léger tabac, même à l’odeur. En bouche, très sèche, on goute vraiment plus le chocolat que ce qu’on retrouvait à l’arôme, sans que ce soit trop puissant. Les saveurs sont bien balancées. Carbonatation élevée.

VT (2526) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 14, 2016
500 ml bottle. Pours a clear ruby reddish dark brown with a resilient, thick, pale beige head. Aroma is tobacco, smoke, roast, caramel. Flavor is tobacco, roast, burnt, caramel. Finish is fruity, hazelnut, oldish, dry. Lingering roast, caramel. Medium to full body, weak to average carbonation.
