Saison, a refreshing drink originally popular with Belgian farm workers known as ‘les saisonners’. We use honey, ginger and seeds of paradise to give a modern and zesty twist to this classic ale.

StueyD (1441) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2015
A mid amber orange coloured beer with a frothy white head. Strong, spicy aroma, peppery and a hint of clove, plus dusty malt and a zesty fruitiness. Dry and fizzy mouthfeel. A zesty, grassy and fruity taste to start, then a warming ginger led spice flavour brings forward a dry biscuity maltiness. The finish is zesty and spicy.

niquillis (1802) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2015
Bottle from Beer Dock, Crewe. Pours like a piddle sample, quickly no head. Seriously lacking any dimension, disappointing. Some banana, light and easy to drink but boring.

AshtonMcCobb (3935) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 5, 2014
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - golden amber and hazy. Some head. Nose - gentle honey and ginger biscuits. Some lemon and yeastiness. Taste - more honey and ginger biscuits. Palate - light to medium bodied with a tangy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - not a massive fan of honey or ginger in beer but this is decent. Can’t help thinking the underlying saison might have been better.

harrisoni (15068) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle from Sourced Market St Pancras and drunk at home. Glue and saison yeast aroma. Some hop some saison yeast, carbonation is both too much and flat. It’s just not a very good beer in this bottle. Ugly aroma and the flavour is ok but no great shakes some banana ester. Rest is not great.

allmyvinyl (6343) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 22, 2014
Keg at the hanging bat. Pours clear gold, thin white head. Aromas of bready yeast, floral hops. Not getting ginger, unless it’s that light spice more. Not getting honey either, although it has a sweet finish. Thin body, decent.

AdiBeer (2127) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2014
Aroma: sweet caramel, bread malts. Appearance: clear gold, small white head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: light malty sweets continue, some dry bitters coming up. Overall: nice Saison, great taste and palate. Bottle at Smokehouse, Islington.

BlackHaddock (4929) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2014
23rd Aug 2014 in Sophie’s Creperie, 330ml bottle. Hazy yellow pour with a white topping. Yeasty, citrusy and spicy in both the nose and taste. Orangey feel as a taste backbone, sweet and sour feel overall. Interesting blend of flavours with the wheat content coming through as well as those orange hints. Different.

330ml bottle from Alesela, Glasgow - hazy pale golden, no head, yeasty floral citrus aroma, honey, yeasty flavour, low carbonation, very sweet for a Saison, oily feel
