The Saison is a classic Belgian style, not often seen outside of its homeland. It was traditionally brewed by farmers and their workers as a beverage to consume during the summer months. Bridge Road Brewers have crafted their own Saison to add to their Chevalier range. This beer is quite unique, light straw in colour, with a tight bright white head. Aromas are dominated by esters and phenolic characters, owing to the Saison yeast strain, which also gives the beer its characteristic tart, dry and acidic profile. This citrus character combined with grassy hop flavours make this a great food beer, try it with anything from seafood to blue cheese.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2020 Don’t love this style of beer... strong and a bit sweet - advent calendar day 5 2020

Mjollnir (525) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - OCT 17, 2020
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2020 Bottle. Pours slightly hazy pale gold with a fluffy white head. Sweet yeasty and earthy aroma, some esters and zesty hops. Surprising bitterness, low sweetness and biscuits. Strong carbonation, light-medium body with a slightly weird bitter finish.

Parmenion777 (1658) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2019
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2019 330ml bottle - Pours a hazy dirty straw colour with an average sized frothy near white head. Aroma is malty, ripe fruit and yeasty with some spicy hop notes. A moderately sweet taste, light grainy wheat and ripe fruit flavours (overripe bananas). Light acidity and bitterness with a dryish finish, quite good.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2019 Pours: cloudy straw, short head Nose: malt, hops & some wheat/banana Carbonation: medium Flavour: banana, yeast, malt, slight sourness. Quite tart

AilsaJ (4) - - APR 27, 2019 does not count
UPDATED: APR 27, 2019 Strong aroma. Carrie doesn’t like this beer. Doesn’t think it’s very complex and doesn’t like the taste. I like it. Good interpretation of a Belgian beer. Fruity and figgy with a dry finish and long lasting flavour.

Andyfroth01 (104) - AUSTRALIA - APR 17, 2019
UPDATED: APR 18, 2019 Great take on the Belgian classic. One of the early great attempts by an Aussie brewery.

goodkarma (104) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 26, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2019 One of the beers that managed to push my palate in wonderful ways. #saisonisbestshared

Choos (1343) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2019 Aroma: weak tea, grain and malt. App: hazy golden, fluffy white head and sudsy lacing. Flavour: cider notes, some malt and farmhouse apricot. Palate: lingering cider, medium palate weight

BitterChalice25 (259) - - FEB 7, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2019 Pours hazy yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma of hay, barnyard and lemon. Not sure if I got an old or poorly handled bottle, but the taste was really unbalanced: boozy and lacking the classic saison funky flavour.

craftyrocker (299) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 30, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2018 330mL bottle. Bottled 23/8/17, drank 21/1/18. Appearance: Gold body. Fluffy white head which retained as a full cap. Thick lacing. 4 Aroma: Citrus esters, saison funk, straw. 7 Taste: Citrus/apricot esters, spice (pepper), light malt, barnyard funk. Tart and dry. Sweet throughout; sour note in the finish. Light bitterness. 8 Palate: Moderate carbonation, fine bubble size, creamy texture, average body. 4 Overall: A tame and light saison. Definitely improves as it warms. 15
