MartinT (9592) - Montreal, Quebec, - SEP 24, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2015 My Bottom Line :
Tropical fruit in the citrus range adorn this Honey Saisons 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.

Bierdimpfe (550) - 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.

djd07 (12613) - 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.

Bottle, at Divinno. Medium golden, slightly hazy, white head. Honey and light grains, and some refreshing tart/funk character, with light pepper in the finish. Nice.

Bottle to tulip Consummation: Sour apricot with a smattering of yeast. Adjunct: Bread, wheat, and hint of skunk rounds out the taste; light sweet and funky aroma; hazy light amber with no head, but decent effervescence.

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.

Tranquillity (2041) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 25, 2016

robinvboyer (4311) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2016
Hazy orange pour, with a medium off white head. Sweet, and tart aroma. Some floral honey, peaches, lemon zest, and some apricots. Not sure id categorize this as a saison, i find its lacking some crisp body, and effervescence. The mouth feel feels heavy, and muddled with a soft carb. The finish is tart in a lactic kind of way, more fruit, wet hay, and some low bitterness. Interesting beer, not at all what i was expecting.
