pumpkinhead2 (910) - Longueuil, Quebec, - SEP 13, 2013
Bire jaune orange, voile, extrmement effervescente et surmonte dune trs abondante mousse blanche. Arme de houblon herbac et citronn, agrumes (pamplemousse dominant), fruits tropicaux (ananas, mangue, fruit de la passion), herbes et pices, un peu de levure. En bouche, cest ptillant et mousseux, tout en apportant une certaine onctuosit au palais. Au got, cest surtout herbac et citronn, on retrouve galement le pamplemousse, les fruits tropicaux et un petit peu de levure. Cette bire est plutt acidule, et la finale amne un bon got de houblon herbeux avec une amertume modre.

HeadyDE (812) - 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 havent 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, cant see how a fan of saisons wouldnt enjoy this, worth the price of the bottle..

onceblind (8934) - 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_ (47) - 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 dont 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!
