A fruity, spelt-based Saison.
Why Spelt, you ask? Saison yeasts are some of the most voracious eaters in the beer world, leading to a beer with more alcohol and lower body. To give the beer a bit more depth, some brewers - like the folks at Brasserie de Blaugies - use grains with a higher protein level, like spelt. The result is a full-bodied beer with a rustic grainy flavor.
Marie-Noëlle Pourtois and husband, Pierre-Alex Carlier are schoolteachers living in Blaugies who produce traditional specialty beers.
- They use yeast from Dupont, one of Belgium’s most famous breweries.
- The word “Saison,” is French for “season,” and originated as a farmhouse ale from the pastoral area of Wallonia, the French-speaking region of Belgium.
