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.

yngwie (16821) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 12, 2013
Bottle, 75cl. It pours an almost clear one, golden in color, and with a lasting, two finger white head. Some curtains. Theres pale malts and piney, peppery hops. Citrus peel too, some banana and a tad too much yeast. Its dry on the palate, with a nice carbonation level. Medium body. Pale malts, green apples, banana, lemon and a pleasant bitterness. Fruity, lightly bitter finish. Nothing extraordinary going on here, but its an honest and nice beer. 131212

rosenbergh (11289) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 8, 2013
750 ml bottle. Bottled on 04/04/13. Tuulensuu, Tampere, Finland. Hazy yellow colour with a small white head. Caramel sweetness, spices, yeast and malt in a delicate aroma. The flavour is fruity bitterness, yeast and malt. No delicacy. Drinkable but not that great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml bottle (Kuikka, Helsinki)
Scarily pale, but persistent tight head and haze to cloudiness makes me happy to give it a 3. Wheaty aroma at first, some slight orval funk, banana later. Crisp palate, carbonation quite harsh. Initial retronasals hint at solvents, like a heady weizenbock. But its not heavy or sweet. In fact its almost thin and light. Thats aided by the wheatiness, which is everywhere in the taste. Nice fatty hops in the finish, nicely bitter tingle. Not a cookie-cutter saison, not the typical wyelabs taste. But thats because of the wheat, this has way more wheat than the usual cookie cutter saisons brews. Very easy drinker. Alcohol not obvious apart from the inevitable zigzagging of my walk later. Possible underrate - even 3.2 would seem a bit low. However there were minor flaws in each aspect, even though there were positives with each aspect too.

Long neck bottle from the brewery. Hazy, light yellow with small white head and some lacing. Grapefruit, malt and funky yeast aromas. Peaches and grapefruit, balanced with a malt backbone, a touch of sourness and good carbonation.
