BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Jester King Brewery
Texas, United States

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 2.90%

Notes / Commercial Description:
A clear and simple expression of the delicate interplay between noble hops and farmhouse yeast. Throughout Northern Europe, light-bodied, well-hopped, low alcohol table beers were often the beverage of choice with all meals at times and in places where the water wasn’t always safe to drink.

Though it is light in alcohol (as was tradition), this saison is big in taste and I would never think this was only 2.9 ABV. Perfect for sipping (or binge-ing) on a hot day.

Had on cask with a pretzel . Terribly drinkable and I could see myself drinking this all day if it were cheaper. Everything is mild with this beer and is comparable to water but turns out with plenty of spiced and yeasty flavors to make it interesting. Mineral quality is great.
