How satisfied the old brewer would be that someone found pleasure in his drink, an old and unique and earthy beer. How satisfied I was as I looked at my empty glass - well, not empty. The beer’s head was still there, lining the inside of the glass, puddled at the bottom looking like whipped cream from a warm cup of hot chocolate. The head never dissipated from the moment it was poured to the moment the saison was done.
Saison is generally brewed year round now. Brewery Ommegang’s Hennepin is fabulous. If you’re in the mood for a unique beer with lots of character and spice, a saison should be on your list.
