look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Purchased at the LCBO for around $2.50 or so for a 330ml bottle. Served at 8deg C in a whiskey glass.

A- Opened a bit too well foaming all over. Nice cloudy appearance

S- Here is an example of yeasty yeast. Wow this one has a bite to it. Nice citrus nose

T- Bang as usual for a nice sour Saison. Definitely has a coriander underlay

M- Pretty good. Noting special though

O- Very good. Will buy again. Nice to have this level of yeast on the tongue every once in a while.

Food Pairing

This nice little Saison paired well with.... Sushi! I rolled a wonderful dragon roll and it paired well

Enjoy

3.95/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: My can produced lots of sediment and floaters in the pretty apricot body, but not much head, no lace, and went flat pretty fast. (in contrast to a side-by-side of Rayon Vert by Green Flash which is explosive and shampoo lacy.)

Smell: Complex aroma: husky grains, stone fruit, fall orchard, melon, white pepper, spice and honey.

Taste: Grows more intense and floral, starting with a bready opening, that frames the Belgian complex character, with melon, stone fruit, honey, hay, lots of honeysuckle and flowers, and white pepper/herbal spice, then the peppery/herbal flavors and honey intertwine in a long, long finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, great finish, with low carbonation

Drinkability: Honey sweet, with balancing complexity and bitter notes. Great with soft cheese, in tonight's case, Camembert.

Well, I feel lots of bitterness, which almost overwhelm everything. However the bitterness lower down when it is warmer, and when finish the drink , there seem to be flavor in your month.
The aroma is the best thing about this beer , smells attractive, attracting you to get closer, though at the first sip, it's really bitter.
I don't feel the spiciness mentioned by others, nor other tastes like citrous or something else, because the bitterness is just too strong ):

St. Feuillien Saison has a medium, off-white head, and a hazy, brilliant (almost luminescent) orange appearance, with very noticeable and relatively large, brown chunks at the bottom. Not much lacing, here. The aroma is of pungent, spicy, horse-blanket, and musty grains. Taste is of all that with maybe white pepper and basil? Bitterness is low. Mouthfeel is medium, and St. Feuillien Saison finishes semi-dry and delicious. No complaints, only plaudits, from me.

3.79/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 11.2 oz can into a Duvell tulip. Moderate hand. AA-170 stamped on the bottom, whatever the hell that means. No date.

A: Cloudy, honey-colored body with a moderate amount of visible sediment. 1.5 fingers off-white head with ok retention. Light lacing.

S: Sweet, fruit-forward, slightly musty yeast. Apple, pear. Hay. Honey. Some grape, peach.

T: Slightly spicy, sweet yeast opens. Fruity maltiness develops and yields to some hopping bitterness on a semi-dry finish. mild alcohol presence. The aftertaste draws out with fruit, malt and a slight tang.

M: Moderate carbonation, moderate body. Less carb and more heft than your average saison.

O: If you prefer your saisons malt-forward, fruity and substantial on the palate, then you should enjoy this. Me, I'm thinking more autumn-time drinking for this one.

Prost!

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

Poured from an 11.2oz. can into a tulip glass.

A- Pours a light yellow-orange pretty hazy, high white head that doesn't stick around too long.

S- Typical Belgian esters of fruit and spice. Slight layers of banana, citrus, clove, some ripe tropical in there too.

T- Mostly getting the spice notes first, then the fruitiness, followed by a yeasty dry bitterness of the finish.

M- Pretty light in the the mouth.

O- A pretty good Saison, good yeast complexity, and a very affordable Belgian beer.
