look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Purchased at the LCBO for appox. $4.65 for a 500ml bottler. Served at 8deg C in a draught glass.

A- Ok. Pours ok with a minimal head. Dissipates to nothing in seconds.

S- Ok. Bit of coriander. Some yeast

T- Ok. Nothing special. Not very sour at all.

M- Guess the creaminess keeps this one alive

O- Will not buy again. Another bomb really

This not very good Saison does well with... Snails and linguine in butter

Enjoy

Pours a very light gold with a minimal white head. Slight aroma of malt, grains and fruit. Those flavors carry over to the taste. Just a touch of funk, and a bit of peat comes through as it warms. Light and crisp mouth. A very drinkable saison. It's a nice change from a lot of the American farmhouse ales.

Appearance is a very murky light orange colored beer with white head and sticky lace retention ; small dotted pattern left on the glass. Smells of grass, citrus, peaches, white grape juice, decent smell. Taste is grassy, juicy nectarine, bitey, very danky, hops and bready finish; dry. Overall, this brewery still ranks amongts my favs in the World, the Saison is unique, and probably better on hot summer days, rather than cool nites or stormy winters. Would like to see is one paired with Oysters/Lobster/seafood, or a stone fruit desserts. Humbolt Fog..black or white truffles.

Pretty unremarkable, subdued beer.

Looks good, though. Soft, hazy honey gold, long-lived creamy head that settles to a solid cap and leaves lots of lace. Quite attractive.

Grassy hops dominate the aroma and flavour, noticeable malt backbone. Grains and fruit, a hint of alcohol. Overall very soft and quiet. Gently drying bitter finish. Soft almost watery mouth feel. Comes across almost like a wheat beer.

Drinkable, but not too exciting. Very soft.
