Brasserie des Géants - Saison Voisin
Saison Voisin pours a hazy reddish-orange color with an ample off-white head. On the nose are pleasant malt notes that lend a light caramel sweetness to the base of a very complex aroma. Look for a very distinct musty, hay-like grassiness to come over the top of the malt notes, along with impressive spicy notes hinting at pepper and cinnamon, with lightly herbal hops finishing it off. The complexity and aroma profile carries forward on the palate as it opens very crisp and dry, building into slightly sweeter malt notes on the midpalate. A light spiciness also presents itself right away and builds into the very prolonged finish. Along the way, there’s a light herbal hop quality along with a citric zing, and a very earthy, almost papery, character that merges with a note of sourdough bread crust all the way to the finish. We particularly enjoyed the spicy, zingy, and lightly bitter finish as it begged us to take another sip – again and again. An earthy Fontina or Camembert cheese would make a great pairing (either will bring out a nutty character in the beer), as well as Spicy Indian Samosas, or Larb (Laotian meat salad).
