L’eau étant souvent impropre à la consommation, les fermiers du sud-ouest de la Belgique fabriquaient jadis une bière pour étancher la soif de leurs employés. Produite principalement pour la saison des récoltes, elle fut connue au fil du temps sous l’appellation Saison. Cette bière était souvent légèrement acide et, par le fait même, plus désaltérante, exactement ce que l’on recherchait après un dur labeur aux champs. Notre Saison est brassée selon les traditions ancestrales des fermes de Wallonie. Elle offre des saveurs sèches, fruitées et légèrement acidulées, couronnées d’une touche de poivre noir. C’est une des bières goûteuses les plus désaltérantes qui soient.

Lukaduke (2067) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Poours a medium golden with good clarity and a finger of white foam. Nose is a bit of spicy caramel, some yeast esters and rustic straw hints. The palate is more pleasant but has a round caramel backbone that I wish was a touch drier and a bit more rustic. Overall its a decent beer just a bit off the mark for a saison in my opinion. Bitter floral grass finish lingers with hints of lemon peel.

mansquito (3297) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Some store: bottle poured into plastic cup. Pours bubbly golden with a white head. Aroma is peppery, slightly funky, and quite fruity. Taste is similar: spicy, a bit sweet, and dry. This was a pretty run of the mill saison to my mind. Good.

shaynsawchuk (435) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2014
500 mL bottle. Pours protein hazed, a honey tone with a frothy white head that lingers and laces. Yeast driven barnyard, spice, banana, pear and bubble gum notes, some moderate grainy sweetness and Old World hopping. Mildly sweet crystal malt juxtaposes the dryness. Finishes bitter. Creamy texture augmented with full carbonation. Moderate body and a lasting bitter finale that coats the palate.

mathieuc (1183) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 23, 2014
Pours a lightly hazy golden with a thin white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is of sweet cereals and fruits, lightly peppery. Taste is lightly tart and generally dry, fruity. Flavors of fresh wheat, pepper and yellow fruits. Body is light to medium, carbonation moderate. All in all a nice saison, I didn’t expect as much!

codfishh (53) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2014
Fruity aroma, lemon, pears and some light clove phenolics, no noticeable hops. Cloudy golden color with an off white head. Mild clove phenolics in the flavor, lemon like citrus flavor comes through. Slight oxidized note in the background. Some light funk. Medium body, low carbonation. Overall it has all the tight characteristics but the carbonation leaves it a little too sweet and heavy.

YanIpa (144) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2014
Ambrée, assez mousseuse et pétillante. Légèrement épaise, elle présente des saveurs fruitées de mangues et d’abricots. Elle est une bonne, la plus simple du style que j ai goûté.

Metalchopz (2213) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 19, 2013
Single from a local IGA. Pours a cloudy golden-amber with a frothy off-white head, good retention and lots of foamy lace. Aromas of Belgian Ale yeast with some spices (cloves, coriander) with some rye notes. Also hints of sweet sugars and apples. The taste is a little unbalanced though. A little malty, a little sour, a little sweet, a little grass and some light alcohol. Too bad it is all over the place, as this could be a good one.
