Saint Arnold Brewing Company Icon Series: Bière De Saison
When you see “Saison” you think spring and summer time refreshing, slightly peppery brews with a nice full yeast profile, zesty carbonation and a citrus note or two. Saint Arnold flipped that notion by combining the usual saison tastes with Bière de Noel, a traditional French Christmas ale.
That means alongside the familiar saison earthiness and spicing comes a much maltier dark base belying a touch of allspice and dark fruits. Brown sugar and quad-like complexity makes for a saison unlike any you’ve tasted before.
Bière De Saison is a much “meatier” saison perfectly suited for cooler climes and a welcome addition to the ever-diversifying options of American saison lovers.
