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

AwaKe (258) - Laval, - MAR 23, 2014
En bouteille, achetée chez Balthazar. Blonde orangée avec reflet dorée, belle encolure blanche sans dentelle. Arômes floraux, malts, levures de saison, fruités dont pamplemousses et fruits de la passion. Même chose au goût mais avec un petit arrière-goût d’amertume, pelure d’orange et houblon. Très rafraichissante mais en même temps très sec en bouche et la fin de bouche est très longue donc au finale c’est pas très désaltérant. Très bon tout de même.

0,1l from tap at Craft Bier Fest Wien shared with a friend. yellow cloudy color, small white head. smells of spices, peach, yeasty, lightly fruity. nice smell. medium to full body, soft carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. tastes of yeast, spices, bit citric, light peach, some exotic fruits, lightly cardboardish. finishes lightly dry and bitter with notes of spices and light peach notes. decent but also not overly special. drinkable.

Saeglopur (1820) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - NOV 18, 2016
Draught at CBF Wien.
Yellow, hazy body, with a big, fluffy, lacing, off-white head.
Aroma of dough, sweet bread, dried fruits, some citrus, spices, some flowers, yeast.
Taste follows this pretty much.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes spicy, yeasty, a bit floral, with dough, bread, some fruits.

Very nice. A straight, old-school Saison, with a great balance, drinks really smooth. Not the most unique style example though, I’m missing a bit more character. Overall still really quaffable stuff.

Renobob (1821) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 18, 2016
Bue en bouteille de 375cl. Blonde dorée. Grosse mousse agréable. Arômes d’agrumes au nez, qu’on retrouve au palais. Grain présent, pointe d’acidité, levure typique de saison. Tout y est. Beau produit.

willisread (2800) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - NOV 8, 2016
Bottle pour at Shelton Brothers. Good saison yeast character on the nose with some lemon, wheat and peppery aromas. Easy drinking and superbly balanced. Has a nice character with some hay and musty notes as it warms up. Lemon and hay on the finish. Clean, crisp and dry. Charming.

phaleslu (9572) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 3, 2016
Pour from a 750 ml bottle at the Shelton Brothers Festival, while I was standing in the 3 Fonteinen line. This was conveniently placed. Pours a cloudy pale gold with a small white head. A very traditional Belgian example - or at least what we’d think of as one - despite being brewed in Quebec. Notes of banana, bread, yeasty esters, barnyard funk, herbs, and grass. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a funky, dry mouthfeel. Good beer.

b3shine (8247) - Indiana, USA - OCT 29, 2016
600 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs; thanks DuffMan). Looks good; a cloudy pineapple with ample fluffy eggshell head. Smells doughy, yeasty, and mildly tart with soft notes of wheat and orange. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Une très belle saison typée, à la robe ambrée au nez complexe alliant notes fruitées et houblonnées, la bouche est fraîche, fruitée, amère et longue. Une très belle saison typée.
