COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We bring you a taste of Belgium with Le Paysan Saison. this style originated from the farms of Belgium where it served to refresh workers as they toiled in the fields over the hot summer months. We fermented our Saison warm which gives rise to many distinct fruity aromas. The initial malt flavour gives way to a crisp, dry finish with a lingering spiciness. The result is a remarkably smooth, refreshing beer that anyone can enjoy in the hot summer months!

Tessic's rating

2.6
Tessic (1146) - Brantford, Ontario, - DEC 20, 2012
This saison poured a clear, dark yellow colour with a minimal, soapy white head. Scents include yellow mustard, spice, very faint vinegar and light malts. First swig was almost peppery with other flavours of yeast and cinnamon. Finish was lightly bitter with light cinnemon and spice lingering.

rumore (488) - Rimini, ITALY - JUN 21, 2017
From 50cl can at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours crisp yellow with very irregular white foam. Aroma is zesty, lemony, plus some lactobacillus feeling. Body is rather light, with a bit of astringency. Taste is low sweet, citrus. Finish is relatively short.

javiercrasher (537) - Granada, SPAIN - JUN 16, 2017
Notas cítricas y especiadas, con el característico toque funk de estas cervezas. Bien carbonatada y refrescante. Con final seco. Muy buena.

Golden yellow with slight off-white head. Light citrusy notes with hay and hops. Well balanced body that is on the thicker side. Quite decent.

The aroma is banana, spices and lemon. It tastes bubbly and hoppy with notes of lemon candy, pepper, summer fruit and light grains. Zesty. My new ’paison’ for this style.

sudomorph (1153) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2016
473ml can. Pours a clear golden yellow with a swirl of unfiltered haze at the end as well as a finger and a half of white head. Aroma has notes of Belgian yeast, slight candy sugar, bubble gum, farmhouse, faint lemon, citrus, and spice. Taste is balanced but not sweet with notes of bubblegum, slight candy sugar, floral, citrus, slight lemon, farmhouse, and faint resin and pine at the end. Medium-full body with a medium-high carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a dry finish. Overall a mildly hop forward saison.

googleimage83 (164) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2016
Pours a lovely orange hue, with nice cloud, nice foam and light lacing. Aroma is spicy and refreshing - lemon, belgian yeast, light malt, pine. Taste is citrusy at first, following with a clove spice, and finishing with resinous hops. Some caramel malt and light banana in the mix. Finish is dry but a bit boozy. Not perfect, but a very solid offering.

3.5
Quevillon (3063) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 1, 2016
473 ml can purchase at the LCBO on Rideau & King Edward (Ottawa) on June 30, 2016. Hazy honey gold, medium head. sweet hoppy aroma, notes of berries and malted wheat. Much drier hoppy taste, notes of wheat citrus and sweet herbs, mild bitterness. A "this will do" saison!

50 cl can. Pours a cloudy orange with a nice lasting white head. Aroma of cereal and fresh cut grass. Taste is bitter and a little sour. The palate is creamy. My new go to ontario beer!
