Saison Voisin used to be a legend amongst first-wave beerrevivalists. It went away. Now it is here again, licensed by its former brewer. But is it the real thing? Kåstå (1272) - Mol, BELGIUM - NOV 29, 2002
Colour: light-amber. Amber-ish, thick , irregular head, not stable.
nose: "fresh farmland odours" - something citrussey, too. Some ironoxide.
Taste gives some iron in the head. Much hops in the taste. No sweetness, very little malt. Some cardboard.
Light mouthfeel, no new aftertaste.
It is refreshing indeed. It is neither sweet, neither strong. All good for a saison, but it isn't the real thing.
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2004 Amber coloured with a small head. Weak hop aroma. The taste is very dry, hoppy and bitter. Maybe this beer is too bitter for my taste.
