Sample @ BCTC 2008. Tasty beer but seemed more like a witbier. Wit looking golden yellow pour. Citrusy, light yeastiness. Didnt really get too much saison here but none the less a tasty quaffer egajdzis (6589) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2008
[BCTC 08] Poured a hazy golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of earthy yeast, honey, some floral hops, and spices. Taste of pils malt, some tart, snappy wheat, toasted dough, light honey, some citrus, grass, pepper, and a lightly dry finish.
Boutip (6380) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 21, 2008
Tap: Poured a bright slightly hazy golden color ale with a nice medium size pure white head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of typical Belgian saison yeast is very interesting with some light floral hops presence. Taste was well balance between the typical lightly funky yeast with a nice malt bill with some medium sweet notes and a light floral hoppy finish. Full body with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very well done and this definitely makes me want to try some more of their beers. Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2008
A fresh and efficient saison with original yeast character for a draught offering.
Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 9, 2008
Fair dose of pineapple and citrusy funk. Sourdough-like yeastiness gives the nose a heavy nod. It’s not quite as captivating in mouth, but manages to refresh its drinker with its wheat abundance. Dries out nicely.
Quick finish. Carbonation could be amped up a little. A bit watery texture.
In short: Halfway between a Witbier and a Saison. Very good stuff.Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 6, 2010
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy yellow-blonde body topped by a small white head
In long: Nose is slightly wild with strong notes of lemon light spiciness. Taste has a lots of tart fruits (pineapples and lemon mainly), some spicy notes, a lot of wheat, a little dough,
It doesn’t know if it wants to be a wild Saison or a refreshing Witbier. This is either an extra-refreshing Saison or a wild Witbier. Either way it’s very good. I don’t mind when a beer cannot make up its mind, it’s a beer not a woman, I don’t have to tell it that being a Saison suits it fine and being a wibier suits it fine too.
BCTC 2008. Tap at the American Flatbread tent at the brewers camp. Pours a hazed golden and nice white head. Aroma is lemon zest with lots of doughy crackery wheat and grain - turns to slight DMS and vegetal with some grass, phenols and fruity ester. Flavor is doughy cracker with cobweb hint, phenolic spicy, coriander, light banana and clove, zesty lemon and almost a lactic hint at the end to keep it tart- still some DMS vege. Mostly dry. TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 5, 2008
Draft @ BCTC. Pours golden with some nice white lace. Smooth, yeasty, citrusy, earthy nose and flavor. Very clean, easy drinking, and refreshing saison.
