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.

Kaatuu lasiin oranssinkullankeltaisena ja kirkkaana vaahdon ollessa todella muhkea, mutta suht nopeaa katoava. Haju on vahvan belgihiivainen ja "kuiva". Muita löytyviä hajuja on olki, sitruuna, greippi, kukkaisuus ja kuiva ruoho/pensas. Maku on edelleen vahvan belgihiivainen, mutta siinä on enemmän greippisyyttä alussa ja lopussa taas sitruunaa. Muita makuja ovat lähdevesi, olki/heinäsuopa, kukkaisuus ja kuivaa havua. Suutuntuma on hiilihappoinen, se jää kielelle kutittelemaan (kirjaimellisesti, tekisi mieli melkeimpä raapia kutina pois). Kuitenkin reilusti miellyttävän puolella. Kokonaisuutena St. Feuillienin saison on vallan mainio hapan ja kuiva olut, kyllä tämä ehdottomasti terassille kuuluu. Enemmän kuin osiensa summa.

Light aromas has fresh citrus and pine, herbs, floral notes. I found also some tallow (not sure it is right word) which was bit strange. Still a good aroma. Bit hazy light amber color is beautiful. Good frothy white head is medium long. Looks good. In taste the malting is more evident compared to aroma, light, soft, low carbonation, bit sweet, long taste. Good one.

Faint hint of banana, fruity aroma. Not very hoppy compared to other saisons. Dry but with a sweet finish. Nice head on it - w emmy

a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2012
Amber, clear, very well carbonated with a head that just kept regenerating; fresh aroma of malt, hay and fumey alcohol; flavour is sweetish malt and citrus fruit tang with some yeasty notes, but that doesn’t do it justice - it’s just super fresh and alive, a bit like perfectly conditioned cask beer; very moreish and reminiscent of the Flack Manor Flack Catcher that I’ve previously rated so highly; this has brightened up a drab Monday no end

Hazy yellow colour. Bitter and dry. Notes of herbs and hops. But a little bit too sweet for a saison.

December 15, 2012 on tap at busters. Cloudy orange pour with nice head. Fruity, pepper and bread in aroma and taste. Relatively smooth and nice body.

thanatosti (1135) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2013 33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Hogerdijk, Culemborg. My first saison. Hazy orange yellow with a white head. Fruity yeasty aroma with some citrus. slighty tart taste with some considerable hopbitterness. Lively carbonation and a long satisfying aftertaste. If this is typical of the saison style I have to find some others, great beer.

750----> super tulip. Pours cloudy light orange with a massive head that never goes away and leaves thick patchy lace. Aroma is slightly spicy yeast, lemon, and banana. Has a slight barnyard taste with citrus and earth notes. Palate is quite dry with less fizz than the pour would indicate. Very nice saison.
