Bocq Saison 1858

0.00

For hundreds of years, farmers in the agricultural regions of southern Belgium and northern France have brewed ale to serve to the farm workers: food and drink were part of the daily wage. Often brewed in the winter months, when farming activity was slower, these seasonal summer beers became known as "saison" beers - French for "season." The flavors and strength found in different saisons ranged widely, depending on the farm's regional ingredients and the brewer's palate, but word of an especially tasty saison at a farm would surely help attract workers for future work.

Saison 1858 is made from barley malt, unmalted wheat, hops, and a bit of spice: coriander and orange peel; the yeast strain is traditional, and Saison 1858 is bottle-conditioned. Du Bocq was established in 1858, and this date is memorialized in their Saison 1858.
