COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blonde opalescente coiffée d’une généreuse couronne de mousse. On trépigne en humant ses arômes complexes d’agrumes et de fruits de la passion qui dévoilent les prémisses d’une satisfaction future. La bouche offre les mêmes fruits, parallèlement au goût d’épices produits par une levure saison authentique. Il en résulte une bière désaltérante, combinant avec un charme certain le flair du Nouveau Monde et la rusticité du vieux continent.
World Beer Awards 2013, the American Best Bière de Garde, Saison: gold

onceblind (9442) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 29, 2017
Clear golden with a large bubbly white head. Dusty grainy and gay filled nose. The body is crisp and quite bubbly and carbonated with a Belgian pale malty tone with bright peppery esters and a bome dry light finish.

DanDan_ (79) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 28, 2017
600mL bottle: Pours slightly hazy gold with a bubbly white head that quickly calms. Aroma of grass, yeast, lemon, funk, spice/herbal notes of coriander & pepper and a bit of banana. I don’t really get the passion fruit from the description. Slight sweetness, light-medium body, moderate+ lively carbonation, and nice flavourful spicy dry finish. Overall: solid crisp and clean balanced saison, leans more classic > new world despite the description though.

7/II/17 - 75cl bottle from a trade @ home - BB: n/a, bottled: 12/X/16 (2017-164) Thanks to Robert S. for the trade and to Erwin for facilitating.

Pretty cloudy blond beer, creamy irregular white head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: marijuana upon opening the bottle, bit sourish in the glass, grassy, bit yeasty, sweet touchy, some spices, coriander, some grapefruit. MF: lively carbon, medium body. Taste: pretty sourish start, lemony, bit grassy, nice bitterness, fruity, grapefruit, bit acidic, funky even. Aftertaste: fruity, blueberries, bit sourish, funky; nice bitterness, grapefruit, pretty zesty, yeast, lemon juice. Impressive how complex this one is!

scarletfire65 (1458) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 7, 2016
Bottle at home. Atypically clear pour with an enormous, lively head. The aroma is lime, floral, soft yeasty notes, mango, passionfruit, a bit of funk. High carbonation. The flavor starts out with a mellow lemony soap quality. Some spices typical for the style - white pepper, coriander, grains of paradise. Lots of pithy lime zest, sour lactic finish. Overall its pretty clean.
