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.

promontor (77) - HUNGARY - APR 26, 2015
0.33l bottle from Pivoteka za popen’t in Ljubljana. Starts with huge foamy and persistent head, which has nice spicy, floral aromas and similar taste with a strong bitter note. Colour is orange and cloudy, apparently an unfiltered beer. Complex taste. Fruity, malty and has a lot of yeast as well. Moderate carbonation, harmonic mouthfeel. Bitterness not strong, but must be there because this is not a sweet beer. Aftertaste is dry, moderately bittter. Extremely well composed beer.

ZodiacM (224) - NETHERLANDS - APR 25, 2015
Een geel troebel bier met een flinke schuimkraag. Geur en smaak van mout, gist, gras en citrus met een lekkere bittere nasmaak.

Tselloufc88 (203) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2015
Can from Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Aromas of fruit (apple) barnyard, some pineapple maybe? Taste is yeasty, fruity, straw. Medium dry finish. Refreshing.

AtronSeige (836) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - APR 21, 2015
Aroma: Medium bready, medium hops, floral, light spice, light orange Appearance: Hazy, golden body with many particles. Medium white head, good retention. Flavour: Medium malty sweetness. Medium bready, bread crusts. Medium hops, fruity, grassy. Medium bitterness. Rose-like alcohols. Dry finish with lingering grassy and bitterness. Mouthfeel: Medium warming. Medium-high carbonation, creamy. Medium-full body. Overall: The complexity with the hops is nice, but the grassiness is not to style. Slightly too sweet. Too much body. 330 ml can, poured. Thanks Andre! 16C. Saison

Almaco (5) - FINLAND - APR 21, 2015 does not count
A big head that you’d expect from a saison. Carbonation is low so too head resilience. Very yeasty on the nose and eyes (much sediment). A good flavour but not as crisp or as tangy as I expected. There are many ’farmie’ qualities to it - straw, grass, yeast - it’s almost more stable than farm house. Stronger than it tastes.

Reconqvista (245) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 19, 2015
Light yellow color with a white lasting big frothy head. Aroma is floral, hoppy and spicy; yeast and wheat notes. Flavor is mostly bitter with some fruity sweetness, body is oily and carbonation is low. Sticky long end.

stijnvanmb (17) - Oostende, BELGIUM - APR 18, 2015
Lekker bier drinkt soepel. Mooie kleur fruitige aroma’s maar ik had wel een wat sterkere hop smaak verwacht zoals op het etiket aangegeven

phaleslu (7208) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 15, 2015
330 ml can from the fridge of a pal- thanks, Colin! Pours a hazy yellow gold with tons of yeast floaters and a small white head. Notes of straw, musty funk, bready and doughy malts, grass, some fruity esters, a bit of herbs and florals, and a faint metallic note. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation. I didn’t know they canned this, and I didn’t realize I hadn’t rated it. Interesting beer.
