DESCRIPTION

La Joie De L'Hiver is a traditional Saison brewed with Old World Pilsner malt and Saaz hops. We love how it is both warming and dry, which makes it a great way to celebrate the colder winter season, à votre santé!

STYLE NOTES

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.
