Cloudy, no head, relatively few bubbles. Buttery, biscuity aroma with some earthiness and farmyard notes. Grain flavours with some yeastiness. Low to medium carbonation, with fine bubbles and very slight fizz on the tongue. Not much bitterness at first, more later. A few fruity notes comes through with further sips. A flavour reminiscent of pate coming through with later bitterness. Fairly smooth to drink. Tastes less than its percentage. An enjoyable, somewhat rustic ale but relatively light in terms of flavour.

Bottle. Cloudy light marmalade colour. Thin wispy head.
Over ripe fruit aroma. Yeasty.
Sweet. Very light bitter. Fruit and yeast again. Some grain.
Light feel. Decent carbonation. Balanced but unassuming.

500 ml bottle served cold into glassware. Purchased for just under $5 CDN.

Appearance hazy pale golden color. Explosive from the bottle and pours a two finger white head with impressive retention.

Smell - major amount of Apple and pear and peach in this fruity concoction. Some mild yeastiness and a floral backing. Some sugary goodness but most of all fruit.

Taste - fruit with a mixture of pear, peach and apple some backing candied sugar and a does of powdery yeast. Well made and flavors complement each other nicely. Maybe if anything, it's a bit too sweet.

Mouthfeel - smooth, well carbonated but not over carbonated. Dry finish and moderate body throughout.

Overall - well crafted and delicious saison. Better exist, bit this will hold up to virtually all competition. Yummy.
