Inspired to the Belgian Saison, the nose is complex and delicate. This beer’s citrus and pepper aromas come from its extraordinary yeast strain. Its dry, bitter finish makes it quenching and easy to drink despite its fairly high alcohol content. It is hard to forget…

This beer is the evolution of the Blonde transformed into a true Saison. The inspiration came while drinking some new generation Belgian beers where the addition of Poperinge hops completed the already unusual character of this beer’s yeast strain. Its extremely slow fermentation occurs under unusual temperatures causing the yeast to produce its citrus and pepper nuances, delivering the beer its great freshness and bite. Adding a small amount of sugar during the boil gives a nice dry finish.

Easy to drink and seductive, when timed correctly this beer has emotional satisfaction. In the summer time, when I come home after a long day of work and the sun has not fully set yet, I enjoy having an appetizer on the balcony while the hills and the sky go from pink, to red into orange. During moments like these Saison is my treasured companion. I drink at least a 25oz bottle and often more!
