Saison is a light, refreshing ale originally brewed in farmhouses in the French speaking regions of Belgium for field workers.It was traditionally brewed for the fall season to refresh farm workers during the harvest. "Saison" is the French word for season, as Saisons were most frequently brewed in the fall/winter seasons. The color is golden with slight amber hughs and the hop bitterness is moderately assertive but balances the maltiness of the beer. It is spicy, earthy, and slightly sour. Truly a refreshing and amazing farmhouse ale.
