The Saison, French for season, was one of the early beers you could find at Beerfarm. It’s hard to think of a style that better exemplifies what Beerfarm is about - fun, easy drinking, and a little different - designed to refresh after a hard day of farm work in the summer. It’s literally also known as a farmhouse ale!
Red Lotus is a new take on one of the great classic styles, that combines the funky and fruity esters of your typical saison with a malty backbone that all the brewers here at Beerfarm have a jonesing for. The cherry on top of this tasty Belgian sundae is the wicked Lotus hop - deep candied citrus and bubblegum add extra layers of character to the fruity biscuit base of this bad boy. This’ll go down perfectly looking at a deep red south western sunset.
