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.

Ernest (7889) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 26, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2007 Rather recent 750mL bottle. Head is initially large, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium amber, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, apricot), with notes of peach and orange peel. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively/soft carbonation. Yet another try and still not a fan...barely even a saison in my book; too sweet without much finishing bitterness. Flimsy and watery mouthfeel. Appearance is excellent, though.

Hazy yellow colour, white foam. Aroma of sweet malts, notes of grass, easy drinkable. Medium carbonation.

vinivini (3146) - Gomel, BELARUS - NOV 9, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2017 Bottle. Cloudy amber colour. Big airy head. Aroma: honey, yeast, spice, some malts. Light to medium body. Dry taste. Fairly yeasty. Spicy. Decent hopping. Not bad at all.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2017 Ongefilterd biertje. De bitterheid speelt niet de eerste viool, wat het bier een vrij toegankelijke smaak bezorgt. De gerstemout zorgt voor een zeer fijne zoete toets. Een fris gerstenat. Geen zware alcohol, wat er een doordrinker van maakt. Maar verleid toch maar Bob eer je hieraan begint ...

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2017 Bière blonde limite ambrée avec une belle mousse compacte ecrue, un nez un peu acidulé et assez sucré. Au gout, assez belle carbonation, un goût assez acidulé, on pourrait croire à une IPA très légère. Bonne bière qui se déguste bien avec un bout de fromage

Wonderful beer, light, bitter, balanced, and tasty. My favorite saison, the most bitter saison I have tasted. Excellente bière, légère, équilibrée, amère et au goût prononcé. Ma saison préférée, la plus amère que je connaisse.

Bottle 33cl. poured into a lager glass. Fruity sourish nose; slightly hazy medium amber, tall loose soapy off-white head, good retention, good lacing; aroma peach, apricot, barnyard, bit caramel; taste medium sweet and bitter, malty, grainy, fruity, bit yeast; bittersweet aftertaste, bit grassy, light spicy notes; light to medium body, watery texture, average carbonation; very nice, smooth and quaffable.

Christos (5909) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 8, 2017
(Géants Saison Voisin) Bottle 330ml at home, served into a small tulip, ABV 5% Copper orange colour on the body, crystal clear, with a tall and thick white head on top, very good retention. Aroma has light caramel, grass, some apricot. Taste is mildly bitter with dust, grass, apricot, metallic notes, light caramel, straw. Medium thin body, highly carbonated. Okay.

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.
