Ever drink a baseball glove mixed with barn hay but kind of sparkling and lightly fruity? Well you should. Saisons are beers that some find just too offensive to the palate, but the right one can resemble a fine white wine or champagne. The style is open-fermented which allows wild yeast and bacteria to become part of the process, which is what leads to the funky, dry flavors of a saison. Even to myself some saisons are hit or miss, but if you had to ask me to pick you one that would best define the style, Saison Dupont is the way to go. Hazy and golden with a nice white head, crisp, dry and sparkling. A light spice is noticeable. Good spring/summer beer. Pair with chicken, fish or a whole mess of hot, nude women. Cheers! -Dave
