COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Traditionally, Belgian Saison was made during the cool months to be consumed during the heat of the summer, when brewing was impossible. Moonfire saison was brewed in the spring, but aged all summer long in white wine barrels. It’s brewed with the addition of brown rice and fermented with a special Belgian yeast strain. This is a complex style with fruity overtones in the aroma and a dry, spicy, tart character with contributions of oak and white wine.

Draft at GABBF. Bright and clear yellow color, thick white head with good retention. Aroma of vanilla, rising bread dough. Taste is white wine, hay, light spice. The combination somehow works, very nice.

Clear golden color with white foam. Dusty pale malt, dry spice, white wine barrel aromas. Dry bready pale malt flavors with dry spice, wet wood, white wine--very good
