This little (or should we say big!) Belgian style beauty, is one beer the Black Dog brewers were more than excited to brew. “Saison” – French for “Season” – is a farmhouse ale that is traditionally brewed for the farm workers. The fruit and spice characters of this beer are produced during a warm fermentation by its characteristic yeast, in this case a new to the market Belgian style strain.
Summer Saison: cold enough for the Belgian farmers, fit enough for the Kiwi pint.
