by Brouwerij Hof ten Dormaal

If you were to imagine a traditional European farmhouse brewery, Brouwerij Hof Ten Dormaal is about as authentic as you can get.  The rural village of Tildonk, near the university town of Leuven is home to this quaint establishment.

They are known for using many of their own-grown ingredients.  They have 15 acres on which they grow barley, wheat and spelt as well as growing two different types of hops.  To complete the ecological cycle, the spent grain is fed to the horses and cows on the property including the beautiful big draught horses.

This saison is made with a host of different grains – barley, wheat, spelt, rye and oats and it is hopped with Magnum, Cascade and Prima Donna.

The beer is quite dry, with the typical funk you’d expect from a saison.  Grainy malts combine with a grassy, floral hop bitterness that finishes with a peppery tickle.
