Many thanks to Seblp for the bottle!

Tractear is a golden colored saison with a massive, persistent cloudy head leaving a curtain of lace in the glass. The nose is spicy and fresh with lots of lemon in the nose and a touch of Belgian fbarn in the back. The flavor is dry, clean and refreshing with a nice yeast profile in flavor and lots of lemon and pepper. The body was light and had heavy carbonation (but not overly). Overall, it is a clear, refreshing saison whose strength is the simplicity of the beer.

bottled in june 2013, had march 2014. Poured clear and golden from bottle (served at BeerBistro) had a good lacing and retention, smell has florals, hay, lemon, and a good farmy/barnyardy feel. On the palate it had a filling full effervescence, nice amount of carbonation and a great sessionability. Quite a typical saison, with a strong yeasty contribution, musty and floral fruity notes, with a lot of citrus, coming together, quite enjoyable all round and a strong representation of the style. Nothing too off-the-wall, with a pleasing dry finish. Quite a tasty and enjoyable saison. Complexity is pretty good and the balance is pretty on the mark. Worth trying if you see it.

Poured from the tap a clear gold color with two fingers of bright white head.

The aroma very sweet with candy sugar and a hint of spice and Belgian yeast.

The taste was incredibly sweet. Too much so. The light spice and yeast notes were present as well.

Medium bodied and dry with a moderate carbonation.

The super sweetness of this Saison overpowered everything else. I actually couldn't finish it.

Orange blonde colour, ring of white head lots of lace. Smell is of fruity yeast, clean grainy malt bill with a lingering light hop presence, some green apple and plastic from the yeast that I get in some saisons, the mix of fruit yeast and plastic here is reminiscent of Dupont. Taste is fruity and dry, lingering grassy hop bitterness, less of the plastic from the nose but still there in the aftertaste between sips, not a whole lot going on here otherwise. Dry medium body, light-medium carbonation. Not a favourite of mine, the last third of the 12oz draft pour was a bit of a chore to get through not because of any off flavours but because this is a bit uninteresting.

Patrolling Beer Revolution continues to dredge up great finds lately, including this saison bolstered with rye on the grist bill. Presented in a pint glass, a classic brownish amber color with a dappling of white bubbles. Aroma immediately fruity, nutty, earthy, and spicy, reminded me of lemon meringue pie but with considerable earthy spice and some horse blanket funk just to remind you that this is a rustic Belgian-style brew and not for the faint of heart. For some reason my nose often registers "earthy unsweetened peanut butter" when sniffing a good saison. I believe this is earthiness from the yeast. Nice. Taste was if anything even more heartwarming, with considerable fruity and spicy complexity. The grist bill provides some bread crust, cereal, and caramel while yeast-derived esters (and maybe the rye as well) presumably deliver the spicy goods , which on my palate register as white pepper and turmeric, not sweet spices. Finally there is a nice fruit bowl effect going on, some lemon, cidery apples and pears, and some tropical notes like passion fruit, maybe mango. There's even a weedy green character lurking in there as the hops arrive on the scene in the finish. Dryish like a classic saison but all the fruit flavors do temper this impression somewhat ... A deep earthy pungency co-exists alongside a bright sweetness without an awkward juxtaposition of clashing flavors. Layered complexity without worrying too much about integration, some might view this as a fault but to my mind this is the sort of Belgian-inspired creativity that ought to be celebrated.
