COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belge fermire

Leau tant souvent impropre la consommation, les fermiers du sud-ouest de la Belgique fabriquaient jadis une bire pour tancher la soif de leurs employs. Produite principalement pour la saison des rcoltes, elle fut connue au fil du temps sous lappellation Saison. Cette bire tait souvent lgrement acide et, par le fait mme, plus dsaltrante, exactement ce que lon recherchait aprs un dur labeur aux champs. Notre Saison est brasse selon les traditions ancestrales des fermes de Wallonie. Elle offre des saveurs sches, fruites et lgrement acidules, couronnes dune touche de poivre noir. Cest une des bires goteuses les plus dsaltrantes 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.

pumpkinhead2 (908) - Longueuil, Quebec, - SEP 13, 2013
Bire orange, voile de petites particules, bonne effervescence, surmonte dun large col blanc mousseux qui se rduit tranquillement en traant son chemin sur les parois du verre. Arme dominant de levure belge, avec un peu dagrumes, de fruits tropicaux et de houblon floral. Des odeurs de crales fraches, un peu de malt caramlis et une pointe dpice (poivre, coriandre, herbes sals). Trs belle richesse au niveau du nez! En bouche, cest ptillant et dune onctuosit moyenne au palais. Au got, on a des crales fraches, un peu de malt caramlis, de la poire, du citron, une belle acidit est prsente, la levure et les pices sont plus subtils quau nez, mais tout de mme bien prsent. Le houblon floral domine la finale et apporte une bonne amertume plutt modre.

Bierdimpfe (624) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 4, 2016
Veiled golden color with storming activity. Ultra thick frothy sparkling 4 fingers mesa island head, lasting around 20 minutes, and creating incredibly thick legs. Flavors of fresh flowers and lemon, faint cheese and quite yeasty, hints of apples and grapefruits, salty and peppery, herbal spices with clove. Highly vinous and acidic. Slick medium body with champagne like carbonation. Strong finish, sour but very fruity like in a pleasant way, lingering grassy hops, sugary estery fruits, and roasted malts. Overall good quality craft. A little too vinous, but yet the flavors are very tasty and the finish is well intensified. Probably a little too much hoppy, and too thin. Else it feels like a well executed bold spicy saison.

Gluepot (593) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2016
A big fluffy white head with solid lacing. The straw/gold body is topped by a solid nose of sweet malt, grain, honey and citrus fruit. A really tasty saison! Cereal, Belgian yeast, and touches of pepper and spice work nicely with a range of fruity undertastes - orange, lemon and peach. Some floral hops here too. Plus effervescence helps keep it refreshing.

Bawelt (818) - Lyon, FRANCE - FEB 12, 2016
Trs agrable. Nez et bouche trs lgrement malts. Petites notes dagrumes et de levure. Cela donne justement un ct trs ferme avec des nuances de fleurs et de paille. quilibre et lgre.

Hugi (475) - Waldkirch, GERMANY - MAY 14, 2015
Yellow and clear. Medium head. Farmhouse/Barnyard style aromas, a bit fruity, citrus, raspberry, lactic acid and peach. Nice yeast profile, some fruity hop-flavours and a bit spicy-peppery at the end.

bartlebier (3815) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 27, 2015
[email protected] Mondial Mulhouse 14, hors comptition due to rien ne va plus... New [email protected] Mondialnachlese III, Feb 15. Summery stone fruit peel and more fruity wheat nuances in aroma makes for an appealing invite to dive into a wispy Northern fruit basket of Marille, melissa, Sezhuan pepper and vanilla, thin wheat. Bit watery, but probably closer to the authentic 30s style than most. Easygoing gentrified New World saison.
