There's a great video on YT on what a Saison is. In short, it's a farmhouse ale (pale or sometimes red) that was historically served to farm workers as a clean source of hydration. Without any distinctive characters and lower in alcohol then, the "Saison" only really gained it's signature when the house in question came into the equation. Also, based on my research, the checkered "Vielle Provision" yellow labels are the export labels.

As it was here, the Dupont Brewery's Saison is generally cloudy, very carbonated via bottle conditioning, zesty and spicy, bitter with a hint of sour, and a dry hoppy finish. For me, this is truly "The beer for all seasons" - the flavours are just so versatile. Perfect for a warm summer afternoon in the park, yet complex enough to pair with a 3-star dish.

Beer night started with this. A beer I'm familiar with but have never asked questions about. So here goes: What is a saison anyway? So it's a pale ale - where does it fit in the category? And what's the difference between this black label and the checkered yellow one?

Anyway, it's a nice refreshing beer on this hot night. Fruity (pears and citrus comes to mind), spicy (white pepper and clove), grassy, with a nice touch of zestiness. Would drink this anyday... a sort of wine drinker's beer... though never over sour beer, sake, or wine for me (in order of ascending preference 😉)
