Sixpoint SEISon

SEISON_HEADER

Saisons are vibrant, quenching and often funky farmhouse ales brewed during the winter months with the help of laborers who tilled the soil in the summer. Distinctively dry, and characterized by spicy, earthy notes, saisons slaked the thirst of farmhands during hot summer months, when clean water was in short supply.

Seison_Pour_Green

The Sixpoint interpretation, “Seison,” retains the refreshing, lively qualities of these French and Belgian farmhouse ales. But since it is bursting with American and Australian hops, and made with a custom, part-Belgian part-American yeast blend, this brew is not a traditional saison—it’s more of a hybrid. The aroma is a blast of pine mellowed by honey-like sweetness and hints of spicy, earthy yeast character. Towards the bottom of your glass, as the beer starts to warm, citrus hop notes come alive, meeting spicy yeast esters.

 

Seison

The malt foundation of the Seison is also unique. After years of experimentation with saisons (and saison hybrids), one of our small-batch brews struck on a amber grain bill that provides the ideal subtle nuttiness to the beer, and uncommon depth of flavor. An Old World style meets the finest New Age ingredients, crafted through experimentation and spun by a Sixpoint Twist. Seison is the latest Sixpoint formulation, available on draft across our network.
