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.

Foffern (1411) - Bodø, - NOV 8, 2012
Bottle at home. Has a slightly hazy light orange colour with a frothy off-white medium head. Nice aroma of herbs, hops, hay, mango, belgium yeast and some spicy pepper. Malty and herbal flavours of hay and hops at first, and then a nice mellow finish with citrus. The mouthfeel is soft, and a light to medium bitterness. A very compact and nice saison. Incredible well balanced.

Sigmund (5706) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2015
330 ml bottle, BB date 15. Apr. 2014, from Vinmonopolet, Nettbutikken. (Think I have a 750 ml corked bottle somewhere too.) ABV is 6.5%. Hazy golden to orange colour, large white head. Grainy and mildly spicy aroma. Medium dry and mildly spicy flavour, refreshing. Tolerable hops in the finish. Okay.

Bottle from the LCBO. Foams a bit from the bottle when opened. Hazy orange body with a good sized white head that doesn’t hand around for long. Aroma is dry, peppery & yeasty, with nice orange blossom and candied citrus peel notes. Prickly mouthfeel. Flavour is quite good, notes of dried apricot, sweet orange, white pepper, tart and dry finish. Enjoyable.

chinchill (2924) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 12, 2015
On tap at the Yard House in Atlanta. Hazy amber body with a good head. The flavor is a bit sweet and low in tart for style, but this did not disappoint me. Light but not watery body with medium carbonation. Moderately complex flavor.
