COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Directly inspired by traditional saisons of the 19th century, beers meant to quench the thirsts of farm workers at harvest time, the Saison de la Senne is a beer of mixed fermentation. It is both bitter and aromatic thanks to particularly generous hopping, while at the same time developing a vinous and tangy character thanks to a blending with old lambic from the Cantillon brewery. Ripened in oak barrels for 9 months and listed at 4.3% abv.

thewolf (11158) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2011
Bottle @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels.
Pours slightly muddy yellow with a lovely, big, staying, frothy, white head. Great duration. Aroma has sweet malts, brett, light sugar, citrus and green apple. Medium carbonation, fine dry and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is fairly tart at first, some soapy hints, pepper, dryness, lots of funky brett. Malty sweet with a lingering, hoppy and bretty dryness. Very yummy, perhaps not worth its price, but still yummy.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2009
Bottle shared at Spuyten Duyvil. Pale golden-straw colour. Aroma is really great. Big bright fruity nose. Quite a lot of tart sourness with a distinct Cantillon-esque funkiness. A bit of tartness and some strong leathery notes. A light lemony tartness as well with a touch of soft cologne and some funky bretty spiciness. The flavour is less intense than the aroma would suggest but it does have a pretty prominent tartness and a funky dry leathery character. There is a bit of grassiness with a touch of light bitterness. It smells a lot more sour than it tastes. There is a touch of sweetness even on the back, despite the strong tart character. Solid stuff really.
