Translation: Saison du Tongka is a yellow-copper colored beer that is dry and refreshing. It has a spicy, candy-like aroma with a light phenolic touch typical of saison yeast. Taste is bold and generous, with a sharp acidity that leads to instantaneous thirst quenching.

Tranquillity (2611) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2015
Hazy orange body, small bubbles. The aroma is sweet, Langtry malty and with oranges. The taste is hoppy. Nice!

mcberko (20259) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 10, 2015
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a hazy yellow with a small white head. Nose brings out Belgian yeast, some candied sugar, and a little bubblegum. Flavour is along the same lines, with a sharp phenolic character upfront, followed by Belgian yeast, light candy notes and spiciness on the finish. Not overly complex. Quite phenolic and boozy for being sub-5%. Off the mark.

Travlr (26944) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Draft. Hazy golden yellow color, medium white head. Aroma of lightly spiced lemon. Taste has lightly funky citrus, raw bread dough, subtle white pepper. Decent.

mathieuc (4000) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 22, 2014
Pours a nice golden with a thin white head that leaves heavy lacing. Nose offers fruits and spices and is generally saisonesque but you also get some isoamyl acetate (banana). Taste is pretty dry but not completely so, offers more fruity flavors along with some black pepper and a cereal finish. Body is medium and carbonation medium-high. Overall a more than fair saison.

fiulijn (21522) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 19, 2014
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Hazy deep blond color with compact head. Dry, moderately spicy, correctly bitter, balanced, a bit grassy, but overall without exceptional qualities.
Nice but ordinary beer.

jdobbs (411) - New Brunswick, CANADA - DEC 13, 2014
Aroma is pleasant, modest fruity hops, light yeasty bite. Flavour is relatively mild but quite pleasant. Mild bitterness throughout, mild hops, mild fruit sweet orange, whisper of mango like tropical fruit. Very light grassy undertones. Very smooth bodied palate, soft carbonation is surprising considering the foamy pour

mabel (10011) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
[5845-20130921] Tap. Mild doggy fur and fruity apple aroma. Hazy, light brown body with a quick foamy white head. Fruity apple plum continues in the flavour with a woody base. Medium body. Average. (6/3/6/3/13) 3.1

Had one on tap at the brewpub in Swawinigan. Extra light color, almost white, abundant head, singular fermune, I’d say lemon. Great beer and great place.

RickTheRick (949) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 30, 2014
Dorée et un peu floue, une mousse moyenne mais persistante se dresse. La levure est très perceptible au nez, ce qui me déplaît un peu habituellement, mais heureusement dans ce cas-ci, des arômes d’oranges, de céréales et d’épices viennent changer la donne. Le côté épicé est toujours présent en bouche, spécialement en finale. Au préalable, des saveurs fruitées étaient très agréables en bouche. Les céréales fraîches sont également goûtées, ce qui crée un bel équilibre.

gildnerk (201) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - APR 24, 2014
Almost an opaque light yellow/white with a thin white head. Rather light citric aromas with earthy and wheat notes. Medium carbonation. Surprisingly robust and bitter for such a light-appearing beer, with a decent briny aftertaste.
