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.

MJGG (951) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 21, 2012
Verre de 12 oz, d’un fût au Local Taphouse de Saint-Kilda. Arômes très invitants de levure rustique et épicée. Robe blonde et trouble, belle mousse et effervescence assez active. En bouche, un beau malt pilsner accompagne la levure rustique et épicée, très authentique. Assez discrète présence houblonnée, plutôt herbacée. Très agréable finale montrant une belle touche d’acidité. Une très belle saison, tout à fait dans les règles de l’art.
