Refreshing, in balance and true to style this beer is just as thirst quenching for the modern IT office worker after a hard day on the keyboard as it was for the Wallonian farm worker after a hard days work on the scythe at Harvest time! Santé! Saison was the traditional beer of choice for the farm workers in Wallonia, the French-speaking part of Belgium. Originally brewed at the end of the cool season to last through the warmer months of Harvest before refrigeration was common. Saison stle beers had to be sturdy enough to last for months but not too strong to be quenching and refreshing in the summer after a hard days work on the farms of Wallonia. It is now brewed year-round in tiny, artisanal breweries whose buildings reflect their origins as farmhouses.
