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.

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?
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.
