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.

a. See through yellow on the pour with a huge head that settles but is at about 1 finger throughout the beer.

s. Pepper, wine (fermented grape), orange

t. blended well - orange, pepper then a bit of bitter at the finish

m. Smooth and very easy drinking. The killer carbonation does not get in the way.

o. Overall this beer is very, very good. Do not usually like this style, but everything is well balanced. No coriander taste to the yeast.
