COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For more than a century, Saison Voisin was beloved in the famous Hainaut region of Belgium until, in 1989, Leon Voisin closed the little brewery where it was made. The Brasserie des Géants, or ’Giants Brewery’, revived this rustic and historic ale with Monsieur Voisin’s blessing in the year 2001, using an original recipe from 1884. It is light on the tongue and refreshingly fruity and bitter, as a true saison should be.

Maakun (5589) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2016
Bottle at home. Clear dark golden with good sized off white head. Light dried plums and raisins, dry grainy touch, light citrus and apricot, nice grassy notes. There’s some weird bitter dusty notes and a weird lasting plastic bitter finish. Otherwise quite nice, the malts are pretty dry, it has nice hops but not much yeasty esters for a saison. Medium bodied, dry feel and soft fizzy carbonation.

10.10.2016 - Not as good as Dupont but this is also a nice Saison. Yeasty fresh taste (hints of brett?) and a dry finish.

3.1
tricksta_p (4663) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2016
Bottle at Café de Hazeburg, Ermelo. Aroma is light spicy Saison yeast and pale malt with a hint of funk. Also has a touch of soap. Flavour is lightly sweetish and moderate bitter. Body is medium, has a fairly dry finish. Decent but ordinary Saison.

3.5
SylvainCFC (250) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 21, 2016
Visuel : couleur ambrée/orange limpide. Mousse abondante et instable, tenue moyenne et dentelle sur les parois. Nez de houblon herbacé, terreux et malt bien présent. Goût très tranché sur l’amertume, astringence en fin de bouche, très buvable. Arômes : notes terreuses et herbeuses, malt présent. Corps léger, carbonatation forte. Une bière très rafraichissante comme se définit une Saison. Mais tend vers l’IPA et une certaine modernité. Très unidimensionnellement amère.

3.5
Hopverdju (1267) - BELGIUM - MAR 20, 2016
Van ’t vat. Helder amberkleurig bier met rijke witte schuimkraag. Geur: licht hoppig. Smaak: droog bitterig met klein beetje moutzoetigheid. Medium koolzuurprikkel. Lekkere doordrinker.

Shark_Pants (743) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 14, 2016
330ml bottle, BB May 2017. Hazy sunset orange pour with small tight head that doesn’t linger. Expected peppery/spicy and funky aromas are there, with honey and orange zest. The taste has the standard barnyard notes, also honey sweetness, earthy hop bitterness, spicy phenols, orange zest fruitiness. Does taste a little watered down, however. Quite light bodied and acidic. Not bad as a table beer but pales in comparison to other more flavourful saisons.
