Had on tap at the brasserie on Rue St Denis.

Pour a weird red colour, clear. Head is white, pretty creamy, but sinks quickly. Lace is sticky and nice. OK, but weird colour.

Smells fairly Belgian. Quite phenolic with deep malts. Touch of grass, herbs, vanilla. Lacking in classic saison notes, but pleasant enough.

Tastes quite malty with mediciney notes along the palate. Gets some mild barnyard funk midway along with dry peppery spice to finish. Not hugely saisony, and quite rich and malty. Very much biere de gardey rather than saison. Decent palate though.

Body is OK, a bit of texture to it.

Some more fresh notes would be good, but overall it drinks OK.
