Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Excellent blanketing effect from the lace. Moderate head that settles to a thin layer of bubbles. Dirty gold color with a chill haze.

I smell some subtle spices like lavender, licorice and nutmeg. Reminds me of a Cream Ale.

The taste is crisp with a strong black pepper tongue. It starts with some creaminess but end bitterly in the swallow. Predictable body with an elevated level of carbonation. Overall, an impressively drinkable Saison.
