I have been brewed since 1844 at the Dupont farmhouse in the town of Tourpes. I am a classic Belgian beer and a benchmark among the Saison beer style. "Saison" simply means Season in French, and as you have already guessed, I am a beer brewed seasonally. As a beer style, I began as a pale ale brewed in the Winter, which is a cooler and less active period in the farm, then stored for drinking during Summer time – a common practise for breweries before the invention of refrigeration.
My brewmasters made me into a beautifully balanced, complex and unfiltered beer with refreshing fruitiness and a long, dry finish. As you drink me, you'll be introduced to flavours of sweet bread, farm fruits, fresh hops, and a touch of spice. Despite my layered palate, I am incredibly drinkable and a great source of hydration.
