The Saison is a classic Belgian style, not often seen outside of its homeland. It was traditionally brewed by farmers and their workers as a beverage to consume during the summer months. Bridge Road Brewers have crafted their own Saison to add to their Chevalier range. This beer is quite unique, light straw in colour, with a tight bright white head. Aromas are dominated by esters and phenolic characters, owing to the Saison yeast strain, which also gives the beer its characteristic tart, dry and acidic profile. This citrus character combined with grassy hop flavours make this a great food beer, try it with anything from seafood to blue cheese.

Kurtos (136) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 22, 2015
Bottle. colour is accurate to marketing deScription. Aroma. A general candied flavour on the nose with mainly flavours of bubblegum and watermelon. Taste. immediately i taste bitter lemon which is present throughout the the tasting, backed by watermelon and bubblegum. Overall. quite a good beer and hard for me accurately describe, though the marketing deScription does a good job of describing it.

Leighton (15280) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2015
Keg at Mother Kellyís - London. Pours clear yellow-gold with a creamy white head. Interesting aroma, maybe some tropical fruity bubblegum, lemon, sugary pale bread. Medium sweet flavor with lots of sugary, lightly doughy bread, candied lemon, tangerine, more bubblegum, esters, watermelon, flowers. Medium bodied with fine to average carboantion. Lightly warming in the finish, very sweet, lightly syrupy, with more floral notes, yeast, bubblegum, white grape. Novel, but in the end it sits a bit heavy on the palate and just isnít that drinkable.

RafeAU (552) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 2, 2015
Tap takeover at the Durham. Nice saison, not much funk, easy drinking, finish is not so dry for a saison. Carbonation is only moderate, maybe itíd be higher in the bottle than on tap.

Bottle. Pours a hazy dark straw-hued body with a large white head. Nose is straw, hay, Belgian saison yeast, citrus, hints of bread dough and grass. Taste is citrus, straw, orange peel, bread dough and hints of Belgian saison yeast. Medium to light body, medium to high carbonation. Lovely fresh and tasty saison with a finely tuned citric profile. Nice.

Capa (2416) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Yellow, cloudy, white head. Light sweetness, spicy, yeasty, a bit funky. Not overly complex just a solid saison. Good but not great. Downed in a Ute after a day at the brewpub.
