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.

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. There’s pale malts and piney, peppery hops. Citrus peel too, some banana and a tad too much yeast. It’s 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 it’s an honest and nice beer. 131212

Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2010
Cloudy blond with a thick head. Peppery aroma with light fruits and nice yeastiness. Very fruity on the palate with gentle spiciness, slightly creamy malts and maybe a hint of acidity late. Nice pale malt character and good balance. One of the more interesting Aussie microbrews I’ve come across.
