MartinT (9880) - Montreal, Quebec, - SEP 24, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2015 My Bottom Line :
Tropical fruit in the citrus range adorn this Honey Saison’s floral honey character, as wheat and lactobacillus move into a relative dryness, increase the refreshment factor.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam covers the misty orangey blond.
-Lactobacillus is obvious in the nose, but is met by lots of different flavors later on. This must be delicious with goat cheese.
-Cereal character is redolent of wheat and even oat, at times.
-Honey flavors surprisingly linger in the aftertaste.
-This tastes like a lactic cousin to Saison du Tracteur.
-Like another compelling creation by Le Trou du Diable. Bravo!

Bottle and on tap at the Oktoberfest de Repentigny.

600 ml bottle. Hazy golden colour, soapy white head. Fruity, a little tart aroma with honey and citrus, and some spicy notes. The flavour is malty, with honey and tart apple, woody notes, and a spicy finish. Nice.

Pours a cloudy honey colour, with a large bubbly head. Aroma notes include honey, lactic acid, and floral notes. Tasting notes include honey, lactic sour notes, florals, fruits, and slightly bitter finish. Mouth feel is light and highly carbonated. Not bad at all!

600mL bottle. Pours a hazy, murky brownish gold with a moderate white head. Aroma is lightly tart, grassy, and lactic with wood, a little honey, and faint lemon. Maybe some white wine. The aroma is slightly lambic-like, but doesn’t have the depth or character. Taste isn’t overly sour; honey, light lemon, flowers, bread, some apple, lactic, wheat, and grain. Lingering and somewhat unpleasant finish of bready yeast and a hint of pepper. Fairly bland, overall. Light-medium body. Fizzy carbonation. Mouthfeel appears to be attempting crispness but is over-carbonated with a slick earthiness after an initial effervesence. The beer falls somewhere between sour ale and saison without really succeeding at being either.

Hazed light gold pour, small off-white semi-fizzy head, decent mention leaves a thin film. Aroma of cereal grain malt, tropical and citrus fruiit, sour funkiness. Taste is medium sweet and medium tart. The sourness is more developed in the flavor with some barnyard / hay, some peppery spice also comes through. Medium body with lively carbonation. It’s an odd one but the it comes together nicely.

Bottle from boite a biere. Pale amber with small white head. Nose lactic with citrusy tartness. Floral honey notes. Some hops. Quite fruity. Taste citrusy. Lactic sourness. Lots of honey. Quite complex. Nice honey profile. Fizzy carbonation.

hellonearth (153) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 12, 2017
Robe jaune un chouia voilé avec une bonne mousse. Arômes de pomme grenade, de lait fermenté. En bouche: lime sucrée, petits fruits rouges, levure. Ce qui domine: le goût surette. J’a-do-re!

Jow (3927) - New York, USA - FEB 9, 2017
Tap at The Jeffrey golden orange color. Nose is some yeast and fruity tones. Tastes of light honey, some tropica fruit, barnyard, limes. Pretty good.

rederic (3337) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 17, 2017
On tap at L’Isle de Garde, cloudy honey gold hue, with a fluffy white head, with a white wine tannin, yeasty, doughy, fruity nose, with a light honeyed grainy pale, toasted, wheat malt accent, and some mild apricot, pear, green apple esters in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a nice honeyed wheat, pale, pilsener, toasted malty, white wine fruity tannin, woody oak barrel, faint Honeycombs cereal character with some fruity ripe apple, faint lactic sour yogurt ish, pie dough, apple mash flavours, leading towards a yeasty, doughy, fruity apple mash, apple pie crust, white wine tannin oakiness finish.

Bierdimpfe (640) - 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 it’s a miss for this saison. Overall below average quality craft.

djd07 (14655) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 1, 2016
On tap at Avenue Pub. Pours a cloudy orange with small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong honey, wheat, oak. Medium body, honey, funk, nice sweetness, very good.
