COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Séance is a dark, complexly concocted Saison, rich with earthy hues and flavors. A mild tartness begins the journey, and an underlying hop bitterness sweeps the senses through a newly opened door of the mind, where you will soon find subtle hints of ripe fruit, bringing you to a place few dare to roam.

This beer pours like a Guinness, with a deep dark color and beige head, however there a light sweetness that surprised me. Great packaging, and more importantly, flavorful beer.

Dark brown with a huge lacey head. Nothing but its strong carbonation suggests saison style. It is disappointing given the other beers from this brewery that are among my favorites.

Pours a brownish color with off-white head. Some floral notes, fruit, and another weird aroma that I can’t quite put my finger on it on the nose; follows onto the palate. This one is weird.

jmgreenuk (4085) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle at Taps, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a clear dark brown with a frothy light tan head, The aroma is light citrus. The flavour is strong bitter with a watery tart resin light medicinal hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Not my favourite beer and I won’t be ordering another. A Saison? I don’t think so. Where is the drawing board again?

Probably an old bottle, although it's hard to see how it would degrade too much. Taste is average. Mouthfeel is thin and strong carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Dark brown with a very tall foamy head. Dry and tart, complex flavors , lingering finish. Not one that I would reach for in the future.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - APR 29, 2014
Rated on 4-29-2014 (Bottle) This beer pours a huge smooth frothy beige head that mostly diminishes, transparent reddish brown hue, lively, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing adorns my glass. The aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, suggestion of fresh fruit, and earthy. The flavor is semi-sweet, moderately bitter, roasted malt, earthy, and some fresh fruit. The mouthfeel is watery and thin. This beer is light bodied. This is unlike any Saison beer that I have ever drank/rated. The aromas and flavors are not typical of this beer style and thus the flavor of this beer is a major turnoff for me. I do not like the taste of this beer at all and it is a beer I have no interest in drinking again.

thedm (4927) - Fort Wayne, USA - APR 29, 2014
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy fine to large sized tan colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque light black brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The smooth aroma was floral. The sharp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering herbal aftertaste. The tangy flavor contained notes of mildly bitter mild spice mild hops brown malt breads and malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

bottle - This is a saison? Really? huh. Okay. It pours dark amber with a one finger, thick tan head that lingers. It smells and tastes of caramel malt. There’s some spicy yeast, maybe a hint of fruit, and a mild finish. It’s okay I guess.

12oz Bottle. The pour was a murky very dark brown with an average (1-2 finger) light brown creamy head that slowly diminished, leaving behind a nice creamy film which lasted throughout and produced excellent sheets of lacing.

The aroma was of roasted dark bread malts, grassy hops and a doughy yeast with notes of coffee, dark fruit (plums and raisons), a slight smokiness and a mild nutty presence.

The taste was a lot like the aroma with a bold roasty maltiness and a touch of coffee which lingered throughout, progressing with a nice dark fruit infusion and a mild hint of yeast, with the finish being a bit smoky along with a touch of nuttiness at the end. The flavor lasted an average duration following the swallow, with a roasty smoky fruity taste left lying in the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was just below medium in body with a smooth creamy texture and a nice soft carbonation.

Overall I really find it hard to consider this a Saison. I feel it is more reminiscent of a Doppelbock, but either way it is a very tasty and enjoyable brew... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews
