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.

A little sour and fresh aroma. The taste is similar. Nothing special really. Dry finish.

MrHangover (2541) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2014
Sampled @ Borefts 2014. Pours a murky golden beer with a light white head on top. Aroma has tropical fruits, light peppery sensations. Flavor has some Bretty notes, light bitter and has a decent, medium carbonated mouthfeel. Not much interesting stuff going on here, I’ve had way better saisons, but this is just ok.

In my opinion better in bottle than on tap. A really nice and unique saison for those who appreciate the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
