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.

This is my favourite Saison I have tasted to date. Don’t really taste the passion fruit. The spice tickles the noise, , enjoy spice taste, bit funky, love the bone dry finnish. Just a wonderful beer, fantastic Saison.

Golden yellow pour. Mandarin orange, pear and some lemony aromas. Taste is spicy and bitter, bit of yeast. Citrus fruits as well. Really good saison

HeadyDE (870) - Delaware, USA - APR 13, 2017
Bottle recently picked up, sweet cap, pours a medium gold color with a massive head, nose is got some of the citrus listed on bottle, oranges, not getting passion fruit but I haven’t had passion fruit in quite some time, light bodied yet full of flavor, getting the citrus on initial mouthfeel chased down with some spicy lemony character and a backbone of that earthy, musty saison yeast, finishes dry, this is a great offering for the style and adequately combines the as listed old continent meets new continent take on the style, can’t see how a fan of saisons wouldn’t enjoy this, worth the price of the bottle..

Bottle. Cloudy golden pour with a white head. Aroma is mandarin orange, some spiciness, candy lemon. Taste is sweet citrus and spicy rye, medium body with a slightly dry finish, lingers nicely balanced. Fairly plain but really solid and tasty saison.

onceblind (10342) - 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_ (82) - 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!

A nice winter ale that has a fruity aroma and taste. I get hints of pineapple and citrus.

Jow (4037) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 9, 2017
Tap at The Jeffrey for lunch during snow day. Fine hazy dark gold pour. Nose is tropical fruits and spice. Tastes of passion fruit, pepper, coriander, lemongrass, and gummy bears. Decent medium body seminsweet finish.
