The famous Saisons originate from Belgium and Northern France. Seasonal beers that can be lightly spiced and brewed using a very unique strain of yeast. Using pale and wheat malts, Styrian Goldings hops and spiced with coriander, ginger, orange and star anise, this is a perfect accompaniment to Xmas fare.

Draught at the brewpub. Copper coloured. Strong licorice aroma - the anise makes it smell like salmiak! Fruity with full malty body and rounded mouthfeel. Heavily spicy and orangey. Intense salty licorice dominates the finish. A powerful, unusual beer with a lot of character.

highlandlad (1464) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - JAN 6, 2006
A very Christmasy Australian saison flavoured with star anise, ginger, orange and coriander. Deep chestnut colour with a good plug of foam showing fair length. Strong licorice aroma from the star anise. In fact, little else gets a look in. Nice in the aroma but a bit one-dimensional. Lovely soft and rounded mouthfeel, quite creamy. Sweet flavoured and dominated by Christmas spices. The star anise is less dominant here, allowing room for curacao and some Styrian bitterness. All in all, this is an impressive balancing act. (Draught at the brewpub with omhper)
