Portsmouth Petite Saison


Brewed by Portsmouth Brewery
Portsmouth, New Hampshire USA
Style: Saison | Ratings: 1 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 3.75%
The 3.75% abv Session Saison in my mind is a new, but old, take on the Saison Style. Where Saison beers traditionally were made as table drinking beers for lunch time for the french farmhouse seasonal workers. So making this lower alcohol Sasion is a paying homage to the original, or at least what i think the original, Sasion recipe. I let the beer ferment out very warm really letting the yeast aromatics and yeast flavors develop. So you are going to get this big Spicy/Fruity nose on the beer. Then when you take a gulp you get a very quaffable, extremely light body, easy drinking beer. Just the perfect beer to quench your thirst after working the sun out in the fields.
