COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2015 Pours a golden body with a thin head. Very nice saison aroma with complex tones. Rich and creamy taste that lays very nice in my mouth. Top notch!

An above average Saison, lots of big flavors of citrus and a bit of funk and tang. Really great stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

77ships (7440) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 11, 2015
750 ml. bottle split by 2 @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Presumably some years on the bottle but I cannot find any date so… Hazy golden, creamy white head. Nose is sweetish milky yeast, sugar and light candy with an interesting zesty quality, lemonade lemon & light Sprite even. Taste is oddly Sprite upfront, zest, yeasty, light meringue, lemon, sugary, sweet yeast but also a touch almost funky. Thick, creamy body. Odd, unusual & pleasant.

scirtes (392) - POLAND - OCT 4, 2015
Bottle. Pours deep yellow, honey-colored beer with extensive white head with perfect retention. Aromas are rather subtle and include peaches, citrus fruits, and some phenolic notes. Taste is lightly bitter, a bit peppery, slightly sweet, fruity. Lively carbonated, medium bodied. Very good but rather well balanced and not very spicy saison.

Hanoi (803) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2015
Bottle. Very lively. Nose is is orange, bread, dough, pepper, a chalky alikilie note, the ginger and grains of paradise are just peaking through. Taste is surprisingly sweet, honey, floral hop notes, lots and lots of sweet orange, a little white chocolate, bread, leading to lots of ginger and emerging pepperiness in the finish. It’s a very nice saison, but it’s just a little too refined, not funky enough, a bit too sweet in the opening. Having heard so much of Lost Abbey I am a little disappointed at my first bottle.

Chalumeaux (1008) - Methuen, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 7, 2015
Poured from bomber hazy golden with a 2 finger foamy white head. Aromas of yeast spice and citrus peel. Taste is dry grass citrus ginger and an overly peppery bitter peel finish. A bit more refinement and this would be awesome.
