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.

19Oracolo78 (237) - ITALY - MAR 8, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2017 Birra dal colore ambrato. Schiuma bianca, fine e persistente. All?olfatto sentori erbacei con note mielate. Al palato corpo leggero con note di caramello e malto. Nel finale rimane molto amara con richiami alla rucola selvatica. Una birra molto beverina, dato il suo luppolo asciuga e pulisce il palato totalmente. Una buona birra.

Gurthnar (6293) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - NOV 3, 2016
Tap at Moeder Lambic. Quite thin bodied, with light oxidation and metallicness. Classic saisony spiciness is present, but rather light. Good but rather average.

Maakun (6814) - 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.
