Saison is a French/Belgian farmhouse style of beer where the yeast is the star. True to weird beard traditions we like to pair the yeast notes with some hoppy ones to create this summer’s day in a glass. It is a dry beer but has enough fruity sweetness to make it very moreish. Should be served cold and well carbonated, you will never see this beer in cask. Batch 0010

Ciekawy saison. W tę wytrawną stronę. Zapach - kwiaty i owoce. Smak - Kiszone ogórki przede wszystkim. Potem wiadomo - przyprawy, trochę kwiatów. Najbardziej kiszony saison, jakiego piłem.

Sjohnh (512) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2015
Gold, cloudy with a big fluffy white head. Medium body with a frothy feel. You get the yeast, the peppery spice, the apricot and orange from the hops; none of which are too pronounced. Slightly dry finish. Does the business.

mR_fr0g (6022) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2015
Keg at the tap takeover Brewdog Camden. Translucent deep golden coloured pour with a nice lasting frothy white head. Aroma is big saison yeast, funky, sorachi, orange rind and coconut. Some dough on the nose. Flavour is composed of crisp bready, doughy grains, sorachi funk, lemon, drying in the finish. Good saison rustic character,. Firm hop bitterness with good valance. Palate is highly carbonated with a dry finish. Ticks all the boxes of a classic saison with a good modern hop kick.

Bottle from Beergium. Hazy amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, yeast, earthy notes, hops, a bit of spices and grass. Bitter finish with citrus, hops, yeast and grass. Good saison, although a bit overdone as usual with breweries outside the traditional area.
