Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, - JAN 31, 2013
In short: A semi-rustic blond Saison with tropical fruits, flowers and honey.
How: Tap at Vices & Versa, Montreal.
The look: Cloudy blonde topped by a large white head with good retention leaving a lot of lacings on the glass.
In long: Nose is bright and vibrant with tropical fruits, rustic countryside character, honey flowers. Taste has honeyed cereals, plenty of fresh tropical fruits, freshly cut wheat and hay, flower petals. Low sweetness sensation despite the honey flavor. Lots of tickling hard bubbles. Refreshing beer. Very good beer even if I prefer their dryer more rustic Saison Du Tracteur, actually I thought Mellifera tasted a bit like a honeyed version of Saison Du Tracteur. A nice honey Saison named after a species of honey bee, and I think my father must have messed up our "bees deposit pollen in flowers" sex talk when I was a kid because I cant drink a honey beer without getting horny.

Bierdimpfe (612) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 9, 2016
Veiled dark gold color with moderate activity. Foamy white 3 finger sparkling head, lasting around 5 minutes, with faint legs. Flavors of flowers, yeasty, leafy, honey, light fruits like green grapes and pears, light herbal spices. Starts a little sugary, yet ends in vinous bitterness. Slick light body with faint crispy carbonation. Light to medium strength finish, with a lingering fruity and honey feel, quite soft, and a dash of bitter yeast. Lacking some freshness being very thin, a little vinous and dry, but highly puckering. The flavors are slightly off and too faint. I think its a miss for this saison. Overall below average quality craft.

So John Waynes sendin his boyz to battle on the ol movie monitor and herez I gots me a honey biere from Montreal - nice, eh? Like, I wonder if this movie was subtittled with Francais and Deutsche back in the day too, gotta bes trilingual to really appreciate it? Time for some language classes, let me repeat, one click is responded by two clicks, let me repeat, send the enemy to Hell. Now you gotta say this beer rating in a John Wayne Voice ta really appreciate it - its gotta decent golden body with carbonay-shun and some foamy stuff on top. You gotta smell it, getchyer nose really in thar, and ya smell some fancy Belgian yeast and a littal hint a honney. Tha flavar is a nice mix a honney and sam a that yeast flavar like ya get fram a Belgian Lyambic beer. Lemme repeat - one click is responded with two clicks. If not, send em ta hell. This is a good beer Igottasay, next stahp Normandy. Far more beer.
