Scratch #214 represents our interpretation of the classic Belgian-style ale – the Saison. This once near-extinct ale was brewed in farmhouses during the winter months and stored until summer, when it was served to the seasonally working farmers. (Hint: “saison” translates to “season” in French.) Keeping with a French theme, we use a strain of French Saison yeast to enhance the mouthfeel, which lends a rich, silky texture and dry, champagne-like finish. The result is a mouthwatering, generously carbonated Saison with a tangy citrus zing, sweet malt backbone, and contrasting peppery spiciness. À la voter! 7.8% ABV.
