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.

Hopverdju (1433) - 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 (764) - 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.

Icedwarf (1763) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2015
Oranje geel bier zonder schuim. Smaak is krachtig bitter en hoppig met iets van grapefruit. Gaat richting een IPA.

The_Osprey (8705) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2015
Nov 2015 - Bottle share at Moeder Lambic, as ’Géants Saison Voisin’. Very dark orange, still, clear, small foamy head, light lacing. Aroma is biscuity, floral. Body is medium, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is smooth biscuity malt, light burnt notes, straw, salty, soft bitterness. Decent.

weark (857) - Morges, SWITZERLAND - DEC 9, 2015
Bouteille achetée Au Grain d?Orge - De couleur ambrée avec une belle mousse blanche cassée qui dure et colle bien au verre - Au nez des arômes citroné, épicé (levure), un peu herbacée et bien maltée, légèrement terreuse, colle parfaitement au style - En bouche des arômes beaucoup plus herbacé et terreux, toujour une bonne présence d? épices (levure) le côté citroné se fais moins présent en bouche - Corp léger, amertume moyenne/forte, carbonation pétillante, sèche, final amère herbacée - saison top, bien amère très désaltérente, typiquement belge

Taste comprises yeast esters, straw, light funk, bready, bitter orange, grain. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Pretty basic saison but ok.

Between orange and amber color with cream head. Nice lemon with apricot aroma, some yeast and barnyard. Taste is a little sweet, some citrus, bitter finish. Av. carb and body. Not amazing.
