COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

RafeAU (629) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 2, 2015
Tap takeover at the Durham. Nice saison, not much funk, easy drinking, finish is not so dry for a saison. Carbonation is only moderate, maybe itd be higher in the bottle than on tap.

ClubGonzo (5536) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark straw-hued body with a large white head. Nose is straw, hay, Belgian saison yeast, citrus, hints of bread dough and grass. Taste is citrus, straw, orange peel, bread dough and hints of Belgian saison yeast. Medium to light body, medium to high carbonation. Lovely fresh and tasty saison with a finely tuned citric profile. Nice.

Capa (2860) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Yellow, cloudy, white head. Light sweetness, spicy, yeasty, a bit funky. Not overly complex just a solid saison. Good but not great. Downed in a Ute after a day at the brewpub.

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Pours yellow hazy with a big white head. Smell of yeast esters, hay, spices and light light malts. Light to moderate sweet, a sting of alcohol and malts, quite fruity, feels a bit too heavy, spicy tail with moderate bitterness. Quite nice saison

beer-yum (1414) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 23, 2014
Closer to a Saison than the Bling is to an IPA - but Im thinking they are not really trying somehow. Hopefully, that means better things to come - yum!

jookos (5740) - FINLAND - SEP 20, 2014
.75 [email protected]s. Pale yellow hazy. Wheaty pale malty, some citrus, belgy yeasty. Mellow fruity. Soft bodied, yeasty wheaty. Sort of dulled, mellow boring. Unless Im doing hard farming, or whatever saisons were designed for, I qouldnt ask for this. As a beer, dull and boring.
