Brewed with French pilsner malt and US wheat hopped with Japanese developed Sorachi Ace and Yakima Valley Simcoe and fermented with an authentic French saison yeast. Lovely citrus and fruity notes from the interplay of the yeast and hops. Great beer for Belgian beer lovers and hop heads alike.
Saison or Farmhouse Ale
Meaning 'season' in French, Saisons were typically given to farm workers during the summer months to hydrate because the water wasn't potable. Hence they're also known as Farmhouse Ales. They are quite complex with lots of spice and fruitiness due to the special yeasts used. The spice profiles are varied including peppercorn, coriander, ginger, anise, orange, clove, vanilla, and more. They have a tartness that is characteristic as well.
