Saison

Saison beer began as a pale ale brewed in the French-speaking Wallonia region of Belgium. They were served to farm workers who were entitled to up to five litres each workday. After brewing, the beer was stored until summer when the main consumers would be seasonal workers (known as "saisonniers"). Historically, saisons were not unique enough to pin them down as a specific style as they were more a sort of refreshing summer ale made by farmers. Most modern commercial examples now range from 5 to 8% ABV. There has been a rise in interest in the saison style in recent years, and modern saisons are generally highly carbonated, fruity and spicy—sometimes from the addition of actual spices.
