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: AUG 24, 2016 At Bad Apple. Interesting stuff. The spices come though well and there is a hint of sour funk. Then hops applied stronger than I would have though. It doesn’t quite work at first, then you get used to the idea and it does work pretty well. Serving: Tap

Marheb (5019) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 6, 2016
(En fût à O’Brien’s): Épices, cèdre, acidité moelleuse, minéraux et une charge des saveurs puissantes et alourdissante. Plus ça avance, plus les épices s’agitent. Le ’’American way’’ ne fonctionne pas partout.

PanMarek (267) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2016
Musty barnyard nose with subtle combination of spices. Pours hazy golden with very thick foam. Touch of sweet malt on the tongue but overall tart and dry. The hops are grassy. The various spices make the taste complex and rewards extended sipping. Comparatively strong alcohol finish. Pittsburgh Beerfest 2016.
