COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St-Feuillien’s Saison is what the Belgians call a beer of the terroir, a traditional farmhouse ale with all the rich savour of the fertile land of southern Belgium. Saison, a warm golden blonde beer, is a top-fermented classique. Thanks to secondary fermentation in the bottle, Saison has an unmistakable flavour full of rich nuances and a slight tang.Judge for yourself. 750s and 20L kegs only. In first instance, for export to the USA only.

Light amber pour. Off white head appears quickly and leaves the same. Nose shows lightly caramelized malt, some spice, and Belgian yeast. A touch sweet. Middle is orange sherbert , hint of liquorice. A slightly citrus hoppy finish closes this one out. A good beer, but seemed sweet for the style to me.

billiejoece (11) - BRAZIL - JAN 16, 2015
Cerveja linda, de um dourado-alaranjado, turva. Creme muito bonito, branco, com pequenas bolhas, formação alta e persistência alta. Muito bacana ver as pequenas bolhas coalescendo lentamente e formando bolhas maiores. Um laço belga discreto no copo. Servi a cerveja mais gelada que deveria, inicialmente senti p aroma lá no fundo. À medida que esquentou, poutz! Aroma forte de caramelo proveniente do malte e laranja volatilizando no nariz, bastante equilibrados. No sabor o cítrico prevalece, mas achei que não ficou tão claro o alaranjado como no aroma. Achei o álcool muito forte, apesar de apenas 6,5%, prejudicando um pouco a percepção gustativa. Ainda no sabor, talvez um pouco de nozes/avelã, mas não ficou tão claro para mim.

This was poured into a sniter. The appearance was a nice looking glazed over hazy orange color with a half fingered white foamy head that dissipated within about a quick finger minute. Barely any lacing formed after the head dissipated. The smell had a nice sweet earthy and bready sweet conglomeration of citrus and a slight sweet/spicy connotation of slight coriander. The taste led to a nice sweet and slightly breadiness leading to slight sticky and somewhat dry sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionabiity about it. About a light to medium on the body. Overall, I say this was a pretty good saison I believe I could have again.

Kauge (445) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle from Wine of Galilee in Tallinn (€ 2.25). BB 13.03.2016. A slightly hazy hay colour. Huuuge bright white head, recedes quickly, leaving very little lacing. Nose is strong hay and citrus fruits, herbal, wheaty (although wheat is not included in the ingredients) and yeasty, doughy, with a little bit of orange peel, some light peppery, and floral-bubblegum notes as well. Taste is malty hay, sweet citrus fruits (tangerines, oranges), with some not very pleasant stale graininess... Body lighter side of medium, carbonation average plus, palate grainy and dry, finishes malty and floral sweet and stale, with very little bitterness. I must say, to me this is a disappointment...

75cl bottle. Pours cloudy golden with a thick white frothy head. Aromas of nut leather and raisin. Taste earthly, a bit sweet and lightly bitter. Alcohol pushes a bit too much through. Aftertaste malty alcohol. Not too shabby but too much alco.

wedgie9 (2487) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 25, 2014
From notes. Tasted some time near the summer of 2012 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle. Pours hazy light orange with a thick white head that slowly recedes to average, rocky lace. The nose is dry, spicy yeast, lemon peel, and some dry bread malt. The flavor is super dry, a lot of lemon and orange peel, and the same dry bread malt. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long spicy yeast finish. This is a very good, classic, dry saison.

Ragnampiza (558) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - DEC 20, 2014
Keg, 330 ml on tap at il Maltese. Rich dark orange, quite hazy, with a small, creamy and persistent off white head. Spicy and estery notes above all, quite intense but could be more clean. Also light cereals, rye bread and a hint of alchool as well. Pretty sweet and sirupy, oily and sticky, slightly toasted and nutty, just before a rough and not too persistent bitterness. No alchool taste at all, contrary to the aroma. A bit more rustic and on style in the aftertaste, even though there are definitely some tripel characteristics. Overall a bit rough. Average carbonation, medium body, slightly creamy texture. Far from my favourite saisons, but not bad.

Bread, grass, fruits and some spices in the aroma. Golden with a white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a average carbonation. Overall a great saison, refreshing and with a nice fruity flavor.
