The Pink Boots Saison is our rendition of a classic Belgian Farmhouse Ale with a California edge. Made with California grown 2-row barley and malted white wheat and hopped with traditional European hops and a hint of Citra hops from the Yakima Valley, Wash. for a modern American touch. The beer is then fermented with a Belgian Saison yeast strain that imparts the classic aromas of banana, spice. Light, crisp and juicy this beer is everything you expect from a great Saison with a mild hoppy edge and pleasantly dry finish. All the proceeds from the sales of this beer will go toward the Pink Boots Society Scholarship Fund. The Pink Boots Society is a non-profit organization created to inspire, encourage and empower women to advance their careers in the Beer Industry through networking and education.

On draft at the Barrel House. It pours a golden yellow color with a white head. The aroma is spicy with clove and some gum. The flavor is very dry and slightly phenolic with some big clove, pepper and light bubblegum in the finish. Could have used a bit more fruity sweetness.
