by Brasserie St-Feuillien

Brasserie St Feuillien has been operated by the Friart family since 1873.  The Saison is one of the most recent additions, being introduced to the market in 2009; at the request of the US importer.

It is a fairly traditional style saison, though at 6.5%, it is a little higher in alcohol.  The Belgian’s call this a ‘beer of the terroir’, capturing the rustic characteristics of the fertile southern lands of Belgium.

The beer isn’t the funkiest of saisons, but is does have a lovely earthy character, coupled with a nice grainy malt body.   

There are strong fruit flavours, and a little dry biscuit character from the malt body.  Citrus and some gentle spicing add another flavour element, and every few sips there is a hint of smokiness in the dry, not-too-bitter finish.

Overall it is a really easy drinking beer, and doesn’t show much sign of the higher alcohol.  A decent session beer, albeit you’d end up with a shorter session maybe!
