Our interpretation of the rustic Wallonian Saison style is a harmonious blend of rustic grains, spicy yeast and unique sauvignon blanc tones. Inviting lemon grass and gooseberry meet peppery spice and fresh grain aromas. Spicy Belgian yeast create a complex yet dry and refreshing canvas with splashes of citrus and stone fruit with a bright tropical white wine finish. Hop bitterness is assertive yet harmonious rounding out slightly tart and refreshing.

Poured from 12 oz bottle, courtesy of SamGamgee. Light golden - yellow with a nice sized white head. Nose is somewhat complex; lots of stuff going on there, lemon, white wine, pepper, mixed in with that Belgian earthiness. Taste is spicy and bitter, a nice blend with a kind of abrupt finish. Overall a great interpretation of this style.

** Bouteille datant de 04/14 ** Une mousse bien touffue d’un blanc immaculé se positionne fermement sur une bière blonde paille très embrouillée. Des vestiges du houblonnage à froid sont encore bien sentis, mais c’est l’aspect rustique qui ressort beaucoup plus. Un léger soufre est également senti, mais rien de dramatique. C’est sensiblement la même chose en bouche, quelques saveurs de fruits jaunes s’accrochent à d’autres plus épicées, le tout dans une belle effervescence. Excellente bière, que j’aimerais bien comparer avec une fraîche.

This is probably the most white wine tasting Saison I’ve had. Really dry and crisp. Tons of big spice, pepper, lemon and a grassy banana on the aroma. Theres something in the aroma a can’t put my finger on. Definitely can tell it’s dry hopped. Theres a big initial bitterness followed by a huge white wine character. Spicy and dry. Theres a slight tartness as well. Overall, this is a really awesome saison which stays on the hoppier side of the fence but has a big white wine character. One of the better Saisons I’ve had. Theres a lot to keep it interesting and delicious. Cheers!

Strong floral and spicy aroma, pours a slightly hazy light straw with a huge white head. Lots of earthy notes, with a touch of grape notes. Light in body, with a nice effervescence to lift flavors off of the palate. This is a very good Saison, and I’ll be trying to get more of this.

Pale yellow pour ,little to no head., the dry hoping adds a lot to the standard saison.

Keg at Brewdog Camden. Pale yellow, still, clear, small foamy white head. Aroma is pungent fruits on the turn, yeasty, passionfruit, background spice. Body is medium, soft carbonation, smooth. Taste is bready, caramel, spice, some light citrus. Dry, musty, yeasty finish with some booze showing up. Overall, it’s quite nice but I was hoping for something more interesting.
