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.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 24, 2010
Pours a clear light amber with a huge white head that slowly subsides. Faint aroma of bread, hay and herb. Flavor is medium sweet initially with light bitterness and then lightly sour. Medium bodied, very nice creamy/sticky texture. Lively carbonation. Very dry finish.

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.

19Oracolo78 (211) - 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.
