St. Feuillien Saison is an award winning farmhouse ale first produced in 2009 in response to North American consumers clamoring for the brewery to create a "hoppy" saison. It pours a hazy golden orange with a small tight off-white head. Top fermented and bottle conditioned, its aromas include apple and bright citrus, sugary meringue, pepper, malt and hops.

Taste is strong hops, citrus and bready malts with notes of coriander, toffee, banana and spice, all fired by an enthusiastic carbonation. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and crisp; the finish lingering, tart and dry.

Brasserie St. Feuillien ("Foo-Yen") had its start in the 7th century, when an Irish monk named Foylan or Foillan—a name which later was translated into the more French "Feuillien"—was killed in the village of Le Roeulx. A chapel was built in his honor, which, over time, became the Abbey St. Feuillien du Roeulx. The abbey featured a brewery to support itself, but was destroyed in the French Revolution. In 1873 the Friart family resumed brewing operations and to this day a portion of the proceeds is donated to charitable causes around the world, making St. Feuillien one of Belgium's oldest and most authentic Abbey Ales.
