COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For more than a century, Saison Voisin was beloved in the famous Hainaut region of Belgium until, in 1989, Leon Voisin closed the little brewery where it was made. The Brasserie des Géants, or ’Giants Brewery’, revived this rustic and historic ale with Monsieur Voisin’s blessing in the year 2001, using an original recipe from 1884. It is light on the tongue and refreshingly fruity and bitter, as a true saison should be.

Aroma is fruity, hoppy, honey, sweet. Nice taste but don’t last as long as you want. Ok head, nice light amber. Harsch palate and too light bodied. Not that well balanced in taste.

freretoc (974) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 7, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 33cl à la brasserie, couleur blonde avec des reflets rubis, belle mousse, mais peu d’effervescence. Une attaque sur l’acidité sèche de la saison puis sur le malt juste torréfié. Pointe acide en finale avec une amertume pataude sur l’endive. Pas top.

Renobob (1046) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 6, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Ambrée claire. Peu de mousse. Peu d'effervescence. Amertume prégnante, persistante au palais et plutot désagréable. Malts présents.

McWorta (796) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 3, 2015
Light hazy, deep golden-orange-brown/light amber colour with a light white frothy head. Aromas of herbal, floral, fresh cut grass, mandarin/orange, apple and slight laurel notes. Light sweet-bitter leaning more towards the bitterness. Medium body, light slick/oily texture with a bitter abrupt light malt-bitter finish.

danielyabu (1331) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - MAR 2, 2015
large rocky frothy offwhite. good lacing. mostly diminishing. flat dark amber body. aroma: citrus orange, apple,honey, metal. if:moderate sweet light acidic. ff: moderate sweet light acidic bitter; long duration. palate: light medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, light astringent finish. Dulçor maltado, caramelado, permeado por levissima acidez, que pareceu ser a caracteristica que mais lembrou o estilo. Saborosa, mas foge muito das características. Ganha certa adstringência com a temperatura, o que surge como defeito e acaba deturpando o já conhecido perfil “colonial”do estilo. 25 s

Deu (864) - Nantes, FRANCE - FEB 19, 2015
Amber coloured and clear, nice full head. Hoppy and fruity aroma wit some notes of elder flowers which reminded me on a classic american pale ale. Flavour is: caramel, nuts and biscuit which reminded me on a classic british ale. Full body with a long lasting taste.

Svesse (6715) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 22, 2015
(Bottle, Le Bier Circus, Brussels, 24 Oct 2014) Pale amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of orange peel, dried apricots and slightly grassy hops. Malty, fruity taste with crisp-bread, apricots, orange peel and a fairly dry finish with a balanced bitterness. Medium body, with just a touch of sweetness. Well balanced and tasty, but I have tried more complex saisons. Quite nice.

Une très belle saison au nez qui allie de belles notes maltées et houblonnées sur un fond épicé, avec une bouche fraîche, digeste, avec une belle amertume et de la longueur. Une des plus belles saisons dégustée jusqu’à présent.
