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.

hobsch (373) - Cologne, - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle 0.33l. Pours hazy amber with long lasting white head. Strong carbonation. Aroma is yeasty, spicy, earthy. Aroma is light sweet, medium bitter, fruity notes, medium dry. Creamy mouthfeel with a good bitterness and a sugary aftertaste. A bit less sugar and this would be close to perfect.

Bottle at a pub in Eindhoven. Fruity smell with a light spicy aroma. Similar taste. Fresh and easy to drink.

Rune (7361) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 21, 2014
Small and slim can, 6.5 % abv, picked up at Vinmonopolet Tromsø Sentrum. Next to clear golden body. Completely dissipating white head. Minimal lacing. Fresh fruity aroma with semi-sweet malts beneath. Succulent fruity taste profile including mandarin, orange and peach. Fruit bitter tail. Airy in the mouth. Medium bodied. Super refreshing, maybe too much juicy fruits (Tromsø 20.04.2014).

Courtesy of bartlebier, thanks a lot! Shared with bartlebier, his girlfriend, Bierle and Konfuzzi. Very pleasant nose, warm and malty; taste also warm, malty, roasty, with floral and citrus overtones. Great beer!

Helsdon (56) - Toronto, CANADA - APR 20, 2014
Just a wee 330ml bottle bought at random at one of my local LCBOs. Cloudy and golden with a slightly orange tinge. Sheeting of white head. Smell some sour grapes, Belgium yeasts, little wheat. Nice sour notes right of the top, well representing that "tang" in the description. A little grapefruit, slight hay. Crisp carbonation on the palate. Really good beer. Gotta love those Belgians.

Leighton (9878) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2014
Bottle at home in Gabrovo, Bulgaria - sourced from one of the big UK online web shops. Pours hazy, deep orange-gold with a large, frothy white head that settles in pretty quickly. Forward Belgian yeast in the nose with suggestion of tangy lemon, lots of pale and lightly doughy bread, esters, a bit of melon. Light to medium sweet flavor with somewhat sugary pale bread, hints of bitter straw, estery yeast character like bubblegum and melon, a bit of tangerine juice, some lemon rind, only a very mild hint of farmhouse twang. Light to medium bodied with lively, massaging carbonation. Moderately sweet to finish with a bit more melon, tangerine meringue, soft lemon candies, doughy white bread, a bit of hay. Very well balanced and drinkable with just enough complexity to make it interesting. A pretty classic example of the saison style.

SimonBeer (68) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2014
(Drinking date: 17 April 2014) Hazy golden orange beer with fast disappearing thin foam. Looks delicious. Lovely aroma and taste of banana, citrus, coriander. Also unfortunately a bit of a metallic aroma. A bit too much carbonation. Overall a nice beer, not too special, but still good. I am enjoying it! That’s why I give it the total score of 3.5!

Glass at Winking Lizard Crosswoods on 4/9/14. Cloudy orange pour with a thick white head. Aroma of malt, coriander, light citrus and banana. Malty flavor with slight banana and herbs before a mild finish.
