COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belge fermière

L’eau étant souvent impropre à la consommation, les fermiers du sud-ouest de la Belgique fabriquaient jadis une bière pour étancher la soif de leurs employés. Produite principalement pour la saison des récoltes, elle fut connue au fil du temps sous l’appellation Saison. Cette bière était souvent légèrement acide et, par le fait même, plus désaltérante, exactement ce que l’on recherchait après un dur labeur aux champs. Notre Saison est brassée selon les traditions ancestrales des fermes de Wallonie. Elle offre des saveurs sèches, fruitées et légèrement acidulées, couronnées d’une touche de poivre noir. C’est une des bières goûteuses les plus désaltérantes qui soient.

As the water supply was often unfit for consumption, farmers in southwestern Belgium traditionally produced a beer to quench the thirst of their workers. Produced mainly for the harvest season, it became known over time as a Saison. This beer was often slightly acidic and therefore more refreshing, exactly what was needed after a hard days work in the fields. Our Saison Tradition is brewed according to traditional recipes of Wallonian farmers. It offers dry, slightly tart fruit flavors accented by a touch of black pepper. Amongst our many tasty beers, this is one of the more thirst-quenching.

Saison traditional on tap at the brewpub. Crystal clear gold, spicy and sweet saison nose, the aim was to make something as close to the original simple farmhouse saison as possible in that I think they succeeded. A clean and simple saison, very well executed.

Couleur jaune orange trouble, mousse qui disparait. Nez fruité, levure, un peu acidulé, note savon. Gout fruité vielile pomme mais avec arrière gout très mauvais amèr astringent, grain de raisin et un peu aqueux.

Bottle 50cl, kindly shared by Calisky. Nose is floral and soapy. Aroma is on over ripper fruits, watery, grapefruit, yeast, low body boring, bretty but unstable. Poor.

Doré tirant sur le orangé. Mousse assez persistante. Les odeurs subtiles de céréale se mêle à la camomille, le mélilot, la tanésie. Rien n’est exagéré, même un peu absent. Zeste de pamplemousse un peu...faut chercher. Plus intéressant à la première gorgée. Pas ultra carbonisé, mousse franche et prenante, presque crèmeuse à la mâche. Surette et acidulé, c’est désaltérant. N’est-ce pas le but rechercé? C’est bien si on ne veut pas se casser la nénette.

Nice dry slightly funky saison. Aroma is malty with not much sweetness. Little bitter, medium bodied, but still refreshing. Nice saison.

Good thirst-quenching saison. Great citrus vanilla aroma, not too bitter or hopped, could possibly have more kick to the Belgian yeast tang and could have more floral punch, but damn good. A bit puzzled about the average grades this got by others.

Spab (4307) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2014
500 ml bottle from Drummondville Metro. Pours a hazed orange colour with modest-sized white head. Aroma is fruity with clove and some yeastiness. Flavour has apple, lemon, wheat, clove and a light funk. Average body. Decent.

3.2
bottleforager (3211) - Gray, Maine, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Poours a medium golden with good clarity and a finger of white foam. Nose is a bit of spicy caramel, some yeast esters and rustic straw hints. The palate is more pleasant but has a round caramel backbone that I wish was a touch drier and a bit more rustic. Overall its a decent beer just a bit off the mark for a saison in my opinion. Bitter floral grass finish lingers with hints of lemon peel.

3.3
mansquito (7277) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Some store: bottle poured into plastic cup. Pours bubbly golden with a white head. Aroma is peppery, slightly funky, and quite fruity. Taste is similar: spicy, a bit sweet, and dry. This was a pretty run of the mill saison to my mind. Good.

Apparence: D?une couleur jaune d’oe translucide, elle est coiffée d?une mousse moyenne d?une bonne durée. Effervescence quasi inexistante. Arômes: Au nez, ce sont des notes de céréales et de fraîcheurs. Saveurs: Corps moyen, avec des notes de céréales et quelques épices délicates. Effervescence faible, mais juste assez. Aucune amertume. Fiche technique Style: Saison Format: 500 ml Taux d?alcool: 5,2% Température: 9°C
