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.

Poured into a tulip glass, produces a large rocky white head, good retention and curtain lacing. Colour is a clear bright yellow gold. Nice film. 4

S – a kick of very vineous yeast aroma, bright and woody, with a clean biscuit malt, a clay mineral and cherry note, only moderate spiciness, some earthy pepper, the yeast is the star here, with some funky citrus, tons of character, and a dry profile. 4

T – juicy with dry notes of mango, kiwi, lemon, and a pleasant balanced yeast, lots of juicy upfront brightness, clean biscuit malt, some bubblegum and florals. Finishes dry with strong attenuation, light lingering spice. Nice transition from super juicy to a dry and crisp finish with lots of balanced character. 4.25

M – moderate refreshing body, light carbonation with a nice acidity to it. Yeasty spiciness is clean and refreshing. Eminently drinkable with a flavourful body and crisp finish. 4

A very flavourful and tasty interpretation, really nice levels of yeasty spice, slight amounts of noble hops, a very traditional but complex interpretation of the style. A very solid Belgian style interpretation, refreshing and spicy. Highly recommended, very strong interpretation. 4.25

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

750 ml bottle into a tulip.

A light apricot gold only slightly cloudy. A quick 2 inch head of large foamy bubbles. Tons of streams of carbonation. Lumps of lacing that lasted to the end.

A deep, full aroma. Nippy, musty funk. Ripe fruits - mango and pears. A slight smokiness.

A complex mixtures of tastes. Sweet cake from the malt. Again ripe fruit - mango and melon. The hops have just enough bitterness to stick in the mouth. A leathery aftertaste. Very little funk in the taste.

A medium feel with excellent carbonation that bites the whole mouth.

A awesome, refreshing saison full of flavours and well balanced.
