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.

On tap @ Bridge Road. Served a hazy light golden color with a nice head that fades to lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, yeast, herbs and bit of sweetness in the background. Taste is tart, with some herbs and fruit,with a bit of malt sweetness. Medium body, with a smooth texture and nice balance. Quite enjoyable beer.

Big offwhite head. Clear yellow body with light carbonation. Funky dried fruit and sugar aroma with citric honey notes. Dry-sweet resiny funky sugary taste with dried fruit and honey notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish wooden fruity aftertaste with funky earthy banana and resin notes. Lovely, drinkable, and interesting. Very similar to Westmalle Trippel, but weaker.

Shared this at the belgium beer garden in melbourne the only thing missing was we were not outside in the sun shine enjoying this tasty saison. Not a huge fan of saison as yet but may be with the warmer months creeping in and beers like this I could be trying a few more. Over all from what I remember I found it tasty and refreshing.
