Valley Brew El Diablo Pequeno Saison


Formerly brewed at Valley Brewing Company
Stockton, California USA
Style: Saison | Ratings: 5 | Spring Seasonal | Alcohol: 5.3%
A Belgian-style Saison, also known as a Farmhouse Ale. A traditional Belgian beer brewed with very low hop bitterness and a spicey character. The Belgian yeast used to ferment this beer produces a complex mix of spicey and aromatic flavors. The beer is also complimented by the use of Licorice Root, Coriander, Grain of Paradise, Wintergreen and other secret spices during the brew process. This beer style was originaly developed as a beer that was brewed at the Farmhouse in the winter and used for nourishment all summer long for the farm laborers. Brew records indicate that as much as 5 Liters per day was conumed per laborer!!! Now that is a real employee benefit. The beer is very refreshing and a great treat for the beer enthusiast.
