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.

It’s darker than I would have thought, but still light, spicy, and delicate. Like watching a dude do ballet.

33 cl presa ad un beershop milanese. Non ho troppa esperienza in Saison ma mi è parsa poco più che sufficiente. Niente di che.

EdwinLitzau (319) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2014
Goudkleurig, mooie laag wit schuim. Ruikt niet erg lekker, bedorven, zwavel. Smaakt niet goed, geen balans, teveel koolzuur.

rosenbergh (6474) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 29, 2014
330 ml bottle. L031. BB 07/2015. From belgianbeerfactory.com. Dark reddish brown colour with a small white head. Yeast, malt, rubber and berries in the aroma. The flavour is berries, malt, yeast and rubber. No good saison. Or is this saison as the label also says Ambrée... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

guzgorog (224) - FRANCE - MAR 13, 2014
Orangée légérement trouble et avec un léger dépot dépot. Le nez est sur la levure (normal) et sur les agrumes (citron, mandarine). L’attaque est sèche et amère, les légères saveurs de malts, de levures et de fruit suivent, puis l’amertume reprend le dessus pendant très longtemps. Bonne carbonation. Très bonne saison dans la tradition et sans concession.
