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.

Golden/orange color with lots of head. Delicate body with some nice fruity flavors and a citrus finish. Tasty beer.

DraftDodger (1080) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2016
Copenhagen 23/9 2016. 75 cl bottle from Meny. A declaration assuring me that I am holding a "Belgian farmhouse Ale" and a drawing to assure me that this beer surely do contain hops. Very informative and a little bit American style marketing. Pours cloudy golden yellow with white head. Settles as thin layer of foam. Aroma is sourish and tart. Lots of citrus with an undercurrent of sweetish lemonade. A little Belgian yeast as well. Quite strong and prickly carbonation and watery palate. Flavor is medium sweet followed by sour citrus and medium bitterness. The carbonation makes you burp but you feel frigging great while doing it. Just as a Saison should be.

R4N5H (789) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 11, 2016
75cl bottle purchased at Jumbo supermarket, Amsterdam and poured into a snifter on 11-Sep-2016. Hazy golden pale colour with a medium sized white head which settles down into a thin film pretty quickly. Aroma of sweet malt, Belgian yeast, citrus and fruit. Medium body and carbonation. Slightly bitter taste, with a spicy finish. Sweet malt, coriander, and lemon peel. Bittersweet hoppy finish. Nice beer - very Belgian.

[backlog] 09-04-16 / 750ml bottle at home, bought in Belgium. Golden colour. Farmhouse, hay notes. Well carbonated. Hoppy bitter finish. I started rating my beers with Untappd and a few basic notes. Now I want to rate them on ratebeer. So my rating sometimes lack some information. Just ignore it, it is for my personal statistics. Untappd-Rating 3.25/5

muzzlehatch (4747) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 1, 2016
330 ml can from Schnucks on State St in Rockford, IL, served at cellar temp from a Duvel glass. Hazy deep gold-amber, light bubbling in the body, big diminishing head that leaves a bit of lasting ring and foamy lace...rather sweet floral nose - clover and jasmine - with touches of honey, light grassy hops; not particularly farmy or pungent, though with some warmth and after a few sips, a strong, strong note of thyme appears...in the body it’s a bit on the sweet side, somewhat undercarbonated and flaccid, though not syrupy or sticky, with that herbal dryness at the finish, that note of thyme creating a really odd back end flavor profile that has a bit of spoiled milk character...finish is a little drier, short. This is weird; not really bad, but just odd and with all kinds of off characteristics that combine to make it somewhat unsettling. I’m fairly tolerant of flaws if I find the end product still drinkable, and I do in this case, but I can’t really say it’s good.

ALIBALI (677) - Kiel, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2016 Anfänglich ein recht schäumig, garstig säuerlicher Belgier. Zum Glück kehrt mit steigender Temperatur auch etwas Ruhe ein und der Trunk wird sanfter mit klaren Hang zur weissen Traube. Könnte auch ein weizig verspieltes Sour Ale sein. Obwohl dafür am Ende wieder doch zuviel belgische Kräuter im Spiel sind. Nicht schlecht. 750ml Bottle aus Brüssel und vom Hahn 2015 mit Micha in Leuven, in der Bar mit den 1000 Bieren !? Beide Versionen gleich gut.

Vells (1607) - Rîga, Latvija, LATVIA - AUG 21, 2016
Starts with some plastic, burned out cigarette, some flowery aspect behind it, later becomes more citrusy, even some pine. Feels bit like roller coaster, between enjoyable and quite sad brew, but overall I liked it.

mandaritto (239) - LATVIA - AUG 20, 2016
Pours golden, long lasting head. Aroma: some hints of coriander, citrus, malts. Taste: herbal, boring. Nothing special. Too high carbonisation.

portwood (169) - Markham, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2016
Grassy nose with a bit of funky yeast. Creamy, effervescent citrus palate. Dry hoppy finish. Well balanced. (bottle bb 01/17/17)

mice (801) - FINLAND - AUG 11, 2016
Samea, oranssinruskea olut vaahtoaa melko reilusti. Belgihiivainen ja kukkainen tuoksu. Maku kukkainen, hieman yrttisen mausteinen ja sitruksinen. Hieman makeampaa maltaisuutta taustalla. Runsashiilihappoinen ja melko kuiva. Raikas kesäinen saison.

Bill Becker (806) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - AUG 6, 2016
Pours from the 11.2 oz can a slightly hazy orange with a short lasting head of foam. Smells spicy with the usual cast of characters for the style but I’m getting notes of green apple, grass, and some pear like aromas. Yeasty, spicy taste with some green apple and pear, quite hoppy on the grassy side. Nice different Saison. $17 for a 4 pack could hinder a repurchase..
