Bernie’s Authentic Real Ale

Saison

Bernie’s Saison is a pale, refreshing, highly-attenuated, moderately-bitter, moderate-strength Belgian ale with a very dry finish. Highly carbonated, and using non-barley cereal grains and optional spices for complexity, as complements the expressive yeast character that is fruity, spicy, and not overly phenolic.

It has a quite aromatic, with fruity, spicy, and hoppy characteristics evident.

The hop bitterness can be restrained, although it can seem accentuated due to the high attenuation levels.
