Appearance: It has a nice semi-cloudy golden color to it. It has a nice thick white head that dies down slowly and leaves some nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of Belgian yeast, spices, floral hops, some citrus and some grain.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a nice floral hop presence, citrus but also alot of spices and some Belgian yeast notes.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with great flavors and aromas. Very good Saison, Charlevoix never ceases to let me down.

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.

Pours a huge head and shows some nice lace.

Spicy aroma and flavour with hints of barnyard straw. A bit more wild than the cleaner DuPont.

Fairly full body is well carbed, with a drying finish.

Thanks again Papat444!

Was very excited to see this one come out. It's the latest in the seasonal Dominus Vobiscum beers from Charlevoix - a Belgian Saison.

Pours out a beautiful pale amber color with a nice two finger head that never dissipates.

Aromas of spicy Belgian yeast, with some fruity sweet smells mixed in as well. Floral hops as well. Made me drool a little.

Lots of Spiciness up front - cloves, and cardamon and a little funkiness. Floral tastes mixed in there with a nice sour and fruity bitter finish. Some apples and pears. Not a huge hop presence, but just enough to balance nicely.

Incredibly refreshing on the palate. Pretty perfect summer beer. I'm glad I grabbed a few of these, again Charlevoix has not let me down.

From LCBO

A: Pours a hazy golden body with a huge amount of white fully head, about 3 fingers. After the head dissipates it leaves a wonderful amount of lacing.

S: Huge front of pears and a mix of other sweet fruits. Some wheat aromas are subtle. Very nice aroma.

T: Taste follows the aromas with a huge front of pear flavour, mixed with other sweet fruits and banana. There is quite a bit of wheaty-hops to the taste that lingers.

M: Light bodied with high carbonation. The texture is water like, and the carbonation makes each drink very crisp. Dry bitter wheat finish with no sense of alcohol.

O: Very nice Saison, easy to drink and very flavourful. Another offering well done from this brewery. Carbonation could be cut back a little, but that's all the negatives I could think of.
