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.

An excellent example of the style. Spicey, yeasty, grassy nose with a suitably dry and tart mouthfeel. Loooked fantastic in a big tulip glass all nice and hazy with a huge rocky head. Truly wonderful.

Tasted this somewhat hastily but enjoyed it enough to warrant another try. Reminded me of Weihenstephaner Hefeweizen, which is a good sign. Similar phenol characters, similar light cloudiness (more sediment - roll it next time?), strong head.

Tap. I don’t know why this isn’t rated higher! It’s a seriously nice saison, maybe not strictly to style given that it has a slightly heavier body than some of the really good ones, but all in all it’s uber nice!

750ml into tulip glass. Beautiful golden orange colour with medium carbonation. Aroma of field mushrooms & straw. Taste is very earthy & funky but delicious. Will definitely have this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Bridge Road (2014 Advent Box). Pale gold/straw, creamy white head, yeasty, grassy, doughy, spicy, apple, pear, low bitterness, low sweetness, smooth texture, dry spicy finish. Really good.

Verre de 12 oz, d’un fût au Local Taphouse de Saint-Kilda. Arômes très invitants de levure rustique et épicée. Robe blonde et trouble, belle mousse et effervescence assez active. En bouche, un beau malt pilsner accompagne la levure rustique et épicée, très authentique. Assez discrète présence houblonnée, plutôt herbacée. Très agréable finale montrant une belle touche d’acidité. Une très belle saison, tout à fait dans les règles de l’art.

No idea why i bought this as it not my style, but really glad i did. Pale straw looking and brilliant white head. Yeasty, grassy and a smidge tart as well. One for the summer months, maybe with some sandies and oysters. Good stuff.
