Black Diamond’s summer seasonal, Le Beau-Fils Dirige Rouge (Redheaded Step Child) pays homage to those saison beers of Belgium.

Crisp and refreshing, our saison pours with a frothy dense white head with an orangish copper hue. Highly aromatic with notes of ginger, cardamom, orange peel & grains of paradise, the body is light and fruity yet quenching. Spiciness in the form of grains of paradise and natural yeast phenols dance on the tongue. The perfect summer ale to cool you down after any stuffy day at the office.

GABF 2010. Pours a clear golden with a thin white head. Aroma is light herbal hops, then spices added- ginger, cardamon black pepper, toast, light bready mlats, crackery and grassy green hops. FLavor is spicy belgian yeast kick, peppery, phenolic, crackery light corn, more spice- ginger lemonzest, mint then a dry easy finish. Not bad.

G.A.B.F. 2008: Golden pour with a creamy white head. The aroma is heavily spiced with tons of ginger and spruce. Very natural. Nice body with a pleasant spice presence. Soft ginger, cardamom, spruce and a nice malt back proving soft sweetness to balance the layers of complex spices. Very interesting ans nice.
