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.

Bottle from VP Aker Brygge enjoyed at home
Messy with a copper base, all hazed out of coursem big white head. Smell of fruity yeast esters, clove and cardemomme, herbal tendensies, hay and light malts. Moderate sweet, a funky touch, hints of acids and tart fruits, nice combo, then fruity yeast esters blended with nice spicy notes, nice malts and a bretty twist. Moderate bitter, grassy tail. Very good

ManVsBeer (8040) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2016
Keg @ Victorian Craft Beer Café, Halifax. Hazy pale peach coloured with a carbonation and a thin head. Dry, not too thin tasting, but does feel weak, although still identifiable within its style. There’s a little more fruit to be found in its nose than taste, these are fairly soft.

Smells like, spice, pineapple, dandelion and burdock. Hazy with minimum head. Taste is refreshing, complex, very drinkable. Feels silky, soft, like a saison!
