“Saison is our take on the Grisette (a centuries-old Belgian and French saison) and honors the heritage of the style while adding a subtle modern hoppiness. The result is a beer that seamlessly blends the traditional estery yeast and dry finish with an American hop flavor.”
Fest Bier perfectly captures the transition into autumn, shifting from the crisp light lagers of summer to a slightly darker, heartier lager that is perfect for the changing seasons.
*This smooth lager boasts toasty malt notes, slightly sweet flavor, medium body, and a reserved but firm hop bitterness.
