Meaning Season, in French, the Saison is a summer farmhouse ale originating from the Quinast region of Belgium southwest of Brussels. Saisons were traditionally lower alcohol beers (though not anymore), and were meant to be consumed by farmworkers working in the fields. Saison yeast can work well at high temperatures in summer barns and can sometimes produce a hint of wild flavor. Light bodied, crisp, and dry, the Saison is perfect for hot weather. Our version uses wheat malt in addition to Belgian Pilsner malt for that summer taste, while Saaz hops add a distinct spiciness to the dry finish. Notes of Pear, Corriander, and Pepper blend with hints of Vanilla to create that certain intangible Saison taste of harvest time in the fields of Belgium.

Mildly hazed golden pour with a white head. There is some bready sweetness to the aroma, banana, pear, and apple. Subtle tartness, some orange, and cider. Flavor of bread, banana, and citrus. Pear and apple esters, a light tartness, and yeast.
