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.

jmgreenuk (8539) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUN 14, 2013
Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a cloudy dark amber with a long-lasting frothy white head. The aroma is dry citrus fruits leading to a slightly sour, medicinal, aspirin like flavour with some grapefruit citrus and and hint of malt on the palate. From the way Ive described it it sounds dreadful, but I have to set the record straight and give this beer a big thumbs up. It was certainly flavour packed and uber refreshing.

Ok beer, probably the best one I had at the Grain store today. Simple and enjoyable flavours, but not overly complex. Not bad.

Big offwhite head. Clear yellow body with light carbonation. Funky dried fruit and sugar aroma with citric honey notes. Dry-sweet resiny funky sugary taste with dried fruit and honey notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish wooden fruity aftertaste with funky earthy banana and resin notes. Lovely, drinkable, and interesting. Very similar to Westmalle Trippel, but weaker.
