Bridge Road Chevalier Saison
Brewery: Bridge Road Brewers
Format: 750ml Bottle
A superb recreation of the classic Belgian farmhouse style, this captures all of the delicate spices and fruit essences you would want in a Saison and was deservedly shortlisted for Best Victorian Beer at the 2010 Australian International Beer Awards. Its part citrusy, part spicy aroma comes from the particular yeast strain used as well as the addition of different fruits, including - on occasion - locally farmed quince. Fantastically refreshing and with a tart, dry finish, it's great with a wide range of foods - even breakfast!
A short tasting notes video for Bridge Road Brewers Chevalier Saison. The Saison is a classic Belgian style, not often seen outside of its homeland. It was traditionally brewed by farmers and their workers as a beverage to consume during the summer months. Bridge Road Brewers have crafted their own Saison to add to their Chevalier range. This beer is quite unique, light straw in colour, with a tight bright white head. Aromas are dominated by esters and phenolic characters, owing to the Saison yeast strain, which also gives the beer its characteristic tart, dry and acidic profile. This citrus character combined with grassy hop flavours make this a great food beer, try it with anything from seafood to blue cheese. http://bridgeroadbrewers.com.au/beers/chevalier-range/saison
