Samuel Adams – A Season for Saison

Saison is a beer style I enjoy, as long as it’s not too funkified – if you know what I mean!  Sam Adams continues to impress me with how they take strong beer styles and make them “user friendly”, introducing newer beer drinkers to different types of beer they might not normally try.

Their Rustic Saison Summer Beer is very true to the Belgian Style Saison, although has slightly more citrus taste and is less musty tasting.  There are some spicy notes, but overall the beer is pretty light with a Belgian twang finish.  It’s a perfect summer “kick back” beer, and totally hit the spot for me yesterday, as it was over 100 degrees!  Cheers – and stay hydrated!


Stillwater Dark Saison

My husband picked up some Belgian beers to share this weekend.  This particular beer is the Stillwater Artisanal.  My friend Monica describes it as, “perfectly balanced!”.  It has a rich, dark chocolate flavor up front, and a spiced caramel finish – without being sweet.

It’s an 11.2oz bottle, but plenty rich to share with friends!  Cheers!
