Perhaps the best beer at Mondial de la Biere, and a gold medal winner too.

Poured a hazy yellow with a large fluffy white head that had more lace than a bride on her wedding night. Big, big, big tree fruit aromas... apple, pear and nectarine, with zest orange, peppery yeast and hay. Tastes like sunshine in a glass. Lots of fruity esters with pineapple, grapefruit, orange, mango and pear. In fact, its almost all fruit, but its a wonderful symphony of flavour, and is still supported capably by a peppery spice and slight wheat tanginess. Medium, dry, crisp mouthfeel is perfect.

Hats off! Trou de Diable would be wise to add this to their regular rotation.

From Club del Gourmet of El Corte Ingles. In Ikea's pint glass. After dinner. Easy drinking, great aroma and tasty. The saison ive liked most so far. Hoppy and itchy.

A light, slightly biting saison with some spicy notes. Pleasant summer beer, a good saison, may not linger long in the memory

Cloudy light golden/whitish beer with a huge white head with big bubbles and lots of carbonation visible. In the nose it's really herbal and floral, you get a lot of hops, also a lot of yeast is noticeable and some bread too. Taste is similar to the smell, really floral and herbal again, you get a little more spiciness too. Lots of carbonation and a long finish makes it a really solid beer.

This beer was on tap at Bar Volo in Toronto, ON.

Look: The body is transparent and light straw. There is a visible slow carbonation that maintains a two-finger white head, which recedes to a thin layer.

Smell: The nose offer notes of lemon juice. Expect neither the sweetness of some fruit nor the slight bitterness of an acidic fruit's zests, nor a slightly skunky smell as the beer's bottle is dark instead of green.

Taste: The palate is typical of a Saison from the New World. It tastes like an apple or a stone fruit subdued by lemon juice. As a result, the beer has a slightly sour taste, which is not a bad thing. Then as its makes its transition towards its peppery notes, it briefly tastes like freshly cut grass.

Feel: I liked the brief moment of the finale when the beer tastes like a refreshing Sauvignon blanc. As for the domination of notes of lemon during the opening, the brewers struck the right balance for this Saison does not feel like a lemonade, a radler or a pop. However, my reservations are about the high presence of hop which makes this the most bitter Saison I have tasted.

Overall: So far, my favourite Canadian Saison is still Le Paysan Saison, from Nickel Brook Brewing Company. With regards to Saison du tracteur, its nose is its best asset. The palate also strays away from that Belgian tendency to be slightly skunky, which makes it refreshing. However, my reservation is about the excessive bitterness on the back-end. Other than that, I would drink this again.
