COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Tap. I donít know why this isnít rated higher! Itís a seriously nice saison, maybe not strictly to style given that it has a slightly heavier body than some of the really good ones, but all in all itís uber nice!

Tasted this somewhat hastily but enjoyed it enough to warrant another try. Reminded me of Weihenstephaner Hefeweizen, which is a good sign. Similar phenol characters, similar light cloudiness (more sediment - roll it next time?), strong head.

Beer4000 (4433) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 13, 2014
750 ml bottle. Close to clear golden body with a medium sized white head. Mild aroma of pale malt, slightly fruity and a bit spicy. Flavor is what I call typical Saison Ė not easy to describe, not particular dominating in any direction, feels pretty average until you give it some time and get a bit deeper into the experience. Soft pale malt, mild fruitiness, spicy yeast, some pepper, low bitterness. Fine balanced body and medium aftertaste. Nothing extraordinary really, but quite pleasant anyway.

Rosslew (190) - AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2014
Citrus and yeasty aroma. Has sour edge. Let's you think it might be Belgian Blonde then a pinch of bitterness with pepper, even mashed banana. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

yngwie (13345) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 12, 2013
Bottle, 75cl. It pours an almost clear one, golden in color, and with a lasting, two finger white head. Some curtains. Thereís pale malts and piney, peppery hops. Citrus peel too, some banana and a tad too much yeast. Itís dry on the palate, with a nice carbonation level. Medium body. Pale malts, green apples, banana, lemon and a pleasant bitterness. Fruity, lightly bitter finish. Nothing extraordinary going on here, but itís an honest and nice beer. 131212

rosenbergh (6660) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 8, 2013
750 ml bottle. Bottled on 04/04/13. Tuulensuu, Tampere, Finland. Hazy yellow colour with a small white head. Caramel sweetness, spices, yeast and malt in a delicate aroma. The flavour is fruity bitterness, yeast and malt. No delicacy. Drinkable but not that great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
