Description

Our Saison Extra is a stronger version of the seasonal classic Belgian Farmhouse Ale. The complex aroma is reminiscent of fruitiness and spices, with a slight sweetness due to malt sugars. The temperature is allowed to rise to 28 °C, by which time fermentation has fully attenuated, producing a fascinating character. To highlight the earthy spiciness, we chose East kent Goldings as our bitter hops. Saison Extra is really good for crab and stockfish (salted and dried cod), but also for many pork and chicken dishes. Even soft, mature cheeses will excel. A highly versatile table ale for a wide variety of occasions.
