look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A:
Pours a glowing, warm goldenrod with a pristine 3+ fingers of creamy white froth that slowly settles to two rocky fingers. Excellent retention; quite a bit of lacing. (4.5)

S:
Sweet yeast and tropical hops. Doughy yeast, potpurri, clove, white pepper, mango, spicy herbs. (4)

T:
Dry and sweet/peppery. Flowers, dough, orange rind, pepper, chalk, earthy/herbal hops. (4)

M:
Smooth and velvety, creamy with champagne-like carbonation and a medium body; drinkable, quick dry finish. (4)

O:
Very good Saison. Spicy and sweet yet dry and refreshing.
Tastes much lighter and cleaner than I would have expected with wheat and oatmeal added to it.
Pours absolutely lovely and smells pretty enticing. It's flavor is dryly spiced but clean and a touch floral-sweet.
Very nice. Rich and refreshing. Drinkable and filling. Big and subtle.
Would have again; worth trying. (4.25)

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Cloudy and slightly orange in color. Lots of foamy soapy head. Lacing and retention are great.

S: Belgian yeast and some hops. Noble in variety. Very strong aroma that manages to prep the nose before the palate.

T: Good saison character. The spicy phenols are there. Nice sweet malt body but not overpowering. It's balanced nicely with the hops which also impart their own flavor. Slightly spicy maybe a bit herbal with some citrus zest. Everything is well tied together making the beer very drinkable and nothing is too overpowering. Maybe a touch tart as well.

M: Crisp and very drinkable. Light bodied but not overly so, just perfect for the style.

O: Pretty good beer. Maybe a touch to expensive for my liking though. I'd gladly drink another but don't know if i'd pay for it.

Huge thanks to ricochet173 for providing this beer on a great night in Montreal.

A: An exceptionally clear pour of pale gold with 5 fingers of big fluffy white head. Head lingers for long time and completely covers the sides of the glass with clumps of billowy lacing.

S: Yeasty bread together with light spices of white pepper and dry mineralness.

T: Yeasty bread together with light spices of white pepper. Middle notes of dry crisp mineralness and finishes with a slight bitterness that lingers.

M: Clean, dry and refreshing. Surprisingly thick mouthfeel for a saison which I quite enjoy.

O: Another exceptional beer from Charleboix. This drinks similar to a Riesling and is well worth seeking out.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A - Light golden pour with strong carbonation. Huge three finger fluffy white head. Big chunks of white soap-like lace and a finger of retention.

S - Lemon, yeast, pear.

T - A little bit of sweet baking spice, lemon, yeast. Interesting and tasty, but a bit heavy on the spice esters. A little banana is there too.

M - Strong carbonation, medium creamy body and a sweet baking spice dryness.

O/D - A fairly straightforward and well done saison. The style is sort of plain in it's purest form, but this executes, the light, refreshing elements of it.
