MartinT (10102) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2015
My Bottom Line:

Ginger, pineapple and kiwi seep from this Saison’s idiosyncractic profile, dwelling in a dry, tart and effervescent mouthfeel.



Further Personal Perceptions:

-A slice of foam covers the shiny golden haze.

-The citrusy character is complex and unique.

-This would probably kick serious bottom were it bottle-conditioned.

-Drinkability is through the roof.



On tap at the brewpub.

(En fût à la brasserie): Un assaut vineux qu’on accueille comme un vieil ami accompagné de ses fruits pales et tropicaux. Une faune sauvage ronfle doucement dans ce liquide frais et juteux. La finale est juste assez sèche et est le prolongement de la barrique. Je lis par la suite kiwi? Tout ça est plein de bon sens.

Clear light golden topped with a moderate off white swirl and edgeing.
Nose is citric peel, lemon, straw, spice, hay.
Taste comprises lemon rind, tangy orange, straw, light spice, yeast esters, hint of funk, soft bread, grain.
