Saskatchewan (Canada)

4.3/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

330ml bottle served in tulip glass.

Gentle pour nets a huge fluffy white head, which eventually turns rocky and sticks to the side of the glass. Colour bright orange, yet hazy. Effervescent. Beautiful.

Aroma is not overwhelming, but has pleasant citrus notes, most notably orange and pear, with just a bit of tartness. I don't smell any hops or spice.

Taste is mild funk tartness up front, moves to delicate soft malt in the middle, finishes with a bit of hop bitterness and some spicy yeast notes. Long lingering aftertaste.

I love a heavily carbonated beer that still has a "soft" mouthfeel. This one's got it. There is no hot alcohols, but the spicy yeast is pleasantly warming in the back of the throat.

Fabulously complex with a moderate alcohol level makes this a joy to drink. I'm glad I bought a 4-pack, because my homebrew Saison is just about finished.

This was my first commercial Saison (sorry Paddockwood, yours just doesn't count), and what a joy. As I mentioned, I brewed a Saison of my own last summer, and it compares very well (mine is only missing the funk), so I guess I did a good job.

4.06/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

This was good. Dry and herbal and somewhat spicy. Straw colored, visible floaters, slightly hazy. White head with persistent lace. Hops were a nice backdrop to some fruitiness and malt. Very clean and crisp. Somewhat of an apple cider crispness in the taste and slight apple in the nose. Pretty drinkable, alcohol pretty well hidden. Smooth mouthfeel. Overall this was good and interesting.
