COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally, the farmhouse brewers of Wallonia would produce a weak Saison beer for the workers and a stronger beer to be aged & sometimes blended – destined for the local taverns. This beer has a primary fermentation with a Saison yeast, then undergoes a secondary fermentation with a blend of Lactobacillus & Brettanomyces. The result is tart, crisp, slightly sour & incredibly refreshing.

Keg at the bottle shop tap takeover. Lovely looking bright golden yellow / straw coloured pour with a huge frothy white head. Aroma is big classic saison yeast, citrus lemon, straw, little funk. Flavour is crisp straw, pils grains , citrus, straw, saison yeast, lemon. Nice classic solid saison. Palate is crisp and grainy, highish carbonation. Good stuff.

Hoprider (144) - DENMARK - MAY 4, 2015
More of a tick than a in depth rating... On tap @ tilquin beer festival. I felt this was the best saison I had at the event. A hazy straw colour with a small head. Fruity barley nose, hints of earthy funk. Slightly acidic, flowery, funky yet very drinkable saison. Long and dry aftertaste. Refreshing and well made.
