This Farmhouse Ale traces its roots to the small rustic breweries of Southern Belgium. The word Saison comes to us from the French language and it means Season. Lightly spiced with Organic Ginger, Orange Peels, Black Pepper and Grains of Paradise, this brew promises to quench your thirst on the hottest Southern California days or wherever your travels may take you. Available in 750 ml bottles and on draft at select inspired locations.

Editor's note. This is a new incarnation of SPF 45, previously brewed at Pizza Port Solana Beach

Tap. Pours hazy butterscotch, medium white creamy head, good lacing. Aroma is grains of paradise, clove, grass, herbal, pepper, coriander. Flavor is heavy spiced, lots of grains of paradise. This would be a great beer to give somebody who does not know what GOP are, clove notes prominent as well.

A really nice saison. On draft, even better from the bottle in my (vague) recollection. Cloudy yellow orange in appearance, a shade darker than the average. Smell is lemon, citrus rind. Taste is more lemon, cracker, plus peppery notes and some Belgian-style yeast strains. Refreshing and dry, onlyba hint of honey-like sweetness, more spiced than average. Not quite Dupont, but excellent.

Bottle. Smells amazing, a bit of a orange, grapefruit, and lemons. Taste great, something that I can drink over and over. A bit of a grapefruit peel aftertaste but not too overpowering.
