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.

Pours translucent orange with a thick white head. Medium bodied and a crisp, inviting palate. Good carb. Citrus and spice aroma compliments a similar flavor profile, adding some bread and wheat. The familiar saison funk rounds out the medley.

From the bottle, first pours run very clear gold / deep gold, perhaps a bit darker and more than the stereotypical saison shade. Nose gives off tropical fruit, a bit of bready yeast. It comes alive, though, in the mouth, with phenolic notes that blend to a lovely rustic character, just a touch of barnyard that remains very rewarding and fun to drink. Wasn’t expecting to like this as much as I did.

75cl bottle. Gold/orange body. Fresh and spicy with sharp carbonation. Some fruity flavours, lemon, herbs, pepper. Nice hop, well balanced. Aftertaste is bitter and yeast. A good refreshing Saison.

MaBeer1972 (1400) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Bottle from Wines & More Mansfield. Pours out a deep orange color with an inch-thick off white head. Very good looking. Aroma of spice and glue. Flavor is complex. Interesting yeast profile. Slighty fruity but bitter - like biting into an unripened peach. Not citrusy. Not too sweet. Body is medium, heavier at the bottom of the bottle. Finishes clean, but yeasty.

Indra (2689) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 31, 2012
750ml bottle. Not too heavy in the nose, just a bit of herbal tea-like aroma, very faint floral tinges, some straw and light sweetness. Semi-cloudy golden in color with a very fine head, no lacing to speak of, though. Very balanced flavor profile, only briefly sweet, then a bit cake-like, some herbal tones and light spice, with faint banana, pineapple and a very light touch of bitterness at the finish. Effervescent and refreshing on the palate, body is medium. Very tasty and refined example of less being more -- subtlety is key.
