COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Séance is a dark, complexly concocted Saison, rich with earthy hues and flavors. A mild tartness begins the journey, and an underlying hop bitterness sweeps the senses through a newly opened door of the mind, where you will soon find subtle hints of ripe fruit, bringing you to a place few dare to roam.

Cakes (422) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 3, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear dark brown color with a mid-sized rocky beige head. Dark for a Saison (looks like a porter or brown ale). Aroma is light A toasted malt flavor with light smoky, cocoa notes. Mid taste has some spicy hops. Finish is brief and dry.An unusual Saison. Not bad, but the weakest beer that I have had yet from the outstanding Magic Hat brewery.

JPDIPSO (5991) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2016
Brown liquid with a taller, stable tan head. Toasted to roasted grainy nose. Simple light flavors, earthy malt, lightly toasted and roasted malt, and just a hint of yeast. Little bits of fruit in the finish and linger. Seems a bit watery. Don’t drink this one very cold! 1/14

gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2015
Not as bad as a lot of the ratings but nothing special either. Normal Magic Hat that has to make the beer not really a saison but something entirely different that has fruit and rind esters and the Magic Hat taste.

Fredis23 (564) - Hickory Hills, Illinois, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Almost Black, Opaque Brown, Huge Foamy Head, Lots of Lacing. No Aroma. Lightly Toasted, Reminds Me Of Guinness. That impression is reaffirmed by the looks and taste. Taste is also more like a stout. Toasted Malt and Bitter. Makes me Wonder if this is misclassified in wrong style. Drinkable. Just OK for Me.

glennmastrange (2763) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle. Moderate toasted, dark chocolate and mild coffee for the malt, herbs for the hops, light leather for the yeast, with a hint of smoke. Head is large, fizzy/frothy tan with excellent yet slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts slightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation. A drinkable beer, not much of a Saison though.

jeremytoni (3029) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - SEP 30, 2014
From a bottle poured a brown color with a good amount of head. Bitter spicy flavor with a lingering aftertaste.
