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.

szagi (201) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 12, 2017
Bottle. Clear, straw yellow colour, small head. Wheat malt in aroma, a bit phenolic, banana. Spices in taste, quite high bitterness, phenolic again, definitely dry and refreshing. Too carbonated for my taste (even though its a saison).

StuffWine (183) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 21, 2017
Poured cloudy yellow with billows of carbonation, topped by a huge rocky/creamy mixed white head. Aroma is yeasty spice and a hint of lemon. Light malt flavours followed by a salty sour mix on the yeasty spice notes, quite moorish and flavoursome. A lot of body for a saison, highly carbonated, moderate length to finish. Actually thoroughly enjoyed this brew, went down easily on a hot afternoon after work. Quality quaff.

Really rustic. Big flavour of fruit, malty, almost spicy. A very rich beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a light cloudy yellow, with a frothy white head, laces well, aromas of citrus, and earthy herbs and spice, flavours match, sweet, and include orange tartness and spice, medium body, with solid carbonation, fresh.

The head looks like clouds outside a plane window. When they look like you could just jump into them and they would hold you up. But they wouldn't hold you up; they wouldn't hold anything up. Much the same with this beer, it's nice but lacks muscle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

macca147 (638) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 21, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours a pale straw yellow with minimal head. Aroma: citrus, straw, dough, and mild banana notes. Taste: citrus dominantes. Mild banana/straw flavour. Mild carbonation. Mild tartness. Mild acidic aftertaste. Quite a pleasant and refreshing brew. A simple saison, reminisecent of the Belgian saisons. Definitely one of the best Australian attempts at this style that I have come across.

Muggus69 (2759) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - NOV 24, 2016
330mL bottle from Booze Bud
Hazy blonde body, good sized white foam.
Aroma of bread dough, pepper, grains, ripe apricots & grass.
Lifted carbonation, body quite full for a Saison, creamy silky sort of texture.
Pepper body, bready, cereally, crusty sort of malts with grassy, herbal hops in a subtle measure on a dry finish.
Reasonable, possibly a bit old?

3.7
ALLOVATE (3075) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 30, 2016
A very solid, tart Saison that drinks with alarming ease, so a surprise all-round.
Into a snifter at just on cool. Looks the goods. Big, tight, rocky white crown atop a pastel yellow body. Visibly effervescent with good legs. A sulphury burst precedes horsey, hessian, Saison yeast notes on the nose. In there also is a little strawberry and banana with tart lemon and white grape, palest grain and sawdust. Dry, parched palate showcasing the yeast and its attenuation. The body very light, the finish very clean with moderate carbonation keeping it lifted. Vinous with a tart, grape-skin astringency. Strawberry and banana sit well in the olfactories. Malt is dusty and pine-like settling the tart fruit well. Quite hairy with light acids. Quenching and refreshing overall with enough character to keep it interesting. (33cL, bottled 29/03/16, Dan Murphy’s Cannington)
