COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saison Station 55 is a red beer with veiled aspect, the taste of malt, hops and spices reminiscent of citrus coupled with a bitter finish. The 55 wants to be a hybrid between a Belgian beer terroir and IPA American type. It is seen against the brewing revival in Belgium.

Liquide de couleur blond et trouble. Beau collet tenace. Les arômes végétales resortent du verre. En bouche, l’amertume des houblons résineux sont dominants mais l’acidité typique d’une saison est bien présent. Très bonne bière.

hangunder (298) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2015
Smells great, lots of wheat-like esters, fresh spices, belgian yeast. A bit sweet smelling. Foamy white long lasting head and a hazy effervescent appearance. Tastes very belgian, tons of belgian yeast here, but comes off a bit sweet -- a bit of funk could help round out the beginning. Finishes fairly dry. Could use a bit more balance, but still refreshing and bright. Medium bodied and highly carbonated.

Ferris (6780) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2015
Bottle - Sweet stone fruit and pale malts. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Sweet stone fruit, citrus, peppery, bitter and a long finish.

Temptation (252) - - APR 4, 2015
The version that I tasted is 7% ABV, not 6,5, and is pale orangish, not red. The mouthfeel, warmy, slightly bitter and well carbonated, could remind of an average champagne. Anyway, is much better than its looking, pale, clean and somehow "bland". Correct saison, improves when chilled. Not bad, but nothing unforgettable.

portableparty (2002) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JAN 31, 2015
750ml bottle. Pours a pale bright amber with a thin tight white head. Aroma is citrus yeast subtle funk. Taste is more subtle funk with really nice citrus bitterness and yeast and malty backing. Palate is thin crisp and dry. Really nice.

Enfoque americano del estilo, con un primer plano de pimienta, herbolario y cilantro. Boca densa para el estilo, golosa, muy bien balanceada, con tacto y recuerdo de miel

Koelschtrinker (11888) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 5, 2014
Leicht hefiger Antrunk, hell, steigende Bitterkeit, milde Kräuternoten. Trockener, dennoch vollmundiger Mittelteil mit nun stäreren Kräuternoten, die der Bitterkeit entgegentreten. Intensiver Kräuterabgang mit deutlichen hopfigen Komponenten. 10/10/11/11/11/11

Ambro206 (223) - ITALY - AUG 31, 2014
Raggiunge la sufficienza per il servizio dal cask e la complessità degli aroni. Alla frutta acerba si mischia l’erbaceo deciso dato dal dry hopping ma in generale la birra risulta sbilanciata e lontana anni luce dalli stile a cui si dovrebbe ispirare sulla carta fatto di spezie ed armoniosità.
