A classic Belgian Saison brewed using Brasserie Dupont yeast, and fermented at traditionally stratospheric temperatures - reaching 98F during primary fermentation! As an ironic nod to the Massachusetts ABCC's recent attempt to force farm brewers to use mainly MA-grown ingredients, the beer uses pilsner and wheat malts from nearby Valley Malts of Hadley, MA, as well as local unmalted wheat and spelt. The result is a quenching, complex, and aromatic light amber beer with a deceptively high 6.3% ABV.
RECOMMENDED FOOD PAIRINGS: Barbecue pork or brisket, wild mushroom risotto, plus any other pungent and complex savory dishes; also a very good match with washed rind cheeses.
