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

A-poured from a can, a hazy golden with visible sediment with two fingers worth of white head that disappears somewhat quickly to leave a layer of lace

S-pale bready malt, sweet fruitiness, a bit of citrus, and a large amount of Belgian yeast

T-taste is very nice, not as sweet as the smell suggests. Bready malt backbone, melon and peachy sweetness, light floral hops, spice, and a nice funky yeast finish

M-medium body, moderate to high carbonation

Overall seemed a bit too sweet in the smell, but the taste is very enjoyable

330ml Bottle from the Ottawa LCBO for $3

Appearance - Gold colour with a large size fizzy/frothy white head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for 3-4 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Cloves, lemons, breads/grains, oranges

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste oranges, cloves and lemons. There is also some breads/grains and a candied orange peel type flavour.

Overall - There is a slight medicine like flavour going on, but other than that pretty solid stuff. Lots of vibrant flavours and a high amount of carbonation make this a great refreshing beer for the warmer months.

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

From the 11.2 can stamped AA-114-08:41. Sampled on March 8, 2014. I saw this in both the expensive bottle and the cheaper can and went with the cheaper can.

Golden yellow pour with some cloudiness but otherwise fairly clear. Quick-lived white fizzy head and moderate carbonation.

The aroma brings out a meaty-fruit character and more precisely peaches. It feels like it is going to be very juicy. Otherwise I get some biscuit malts, light yeast, and little to no hop bite.

Light to medium body but overall refreshing.

Aggressive biscuit malt and peach character at the start and some vague pepper and spice in the background. Clean finish. Very easy to drink.

Poured from a 33 cl can into a teku.

A: Golden hue. Pours a 1 finger, bubbly, white head. Settles pretty quickly, but leaves a foam blanket and some nice beer ring lacing.

S: Yeast, with very light hints of orange citrus.

T: Yeast, apricot, orange, banana, and a touch of raspberry.

M: Light and bready. Pungent finish that lingers on the palate.

D: Almost sessionable, but a little too bready.

Atmosphere is pretty nice. Decent head, and some persistent lacing. Nose is yeasty with various fruity components. Yeasty, with tropical and citrus fruits. Very bready. Overall, this is a good quaff.

Bottle: a big and solid brown 750mL bottle with a classic old-school label. Looks like quality.

Appearance: pours a vibrant, hazy amber yellow with plenty of fine carbonation. Plenty of small floaties racing throughout the profile thanks to the spritzy carbonation. A white fluffy head hangs around the one-finger mark for a couple of minutes before settling to a solid ring. Almost no lacing. A great looking beer.

Aroma: quite mild on the nose - some bread malts, orchard fruits and mild spice. Not really all that much to it.

Taste: an astonishing saison. Belgian yeasts, orchard fruits - specifically apples and pears - pepper, spices and some astringent citrus. A true pleasure.

Aftertaste: flavours hang about for quite a time. A good sessional beer, but also something that one could share and chat for the evening on the back deck.

Mouth feel: perhaps a bit too spritzy for the style. Very easy to put back, which is a bit of an issue when it is 6.5% ABV and AU$13 a bottle. None-the-less, good drinking.

Overall: not the best Saison I have had to date but still a pretty darn good beer. When the price of AU$13 a 750mL bottle is taken into account, I'd say this one goes pretty close to the top.
