As for the beer itself, Patio Saison is described as follows:
The saison style beer has its origins in the Wallonia region of Belgium. Traditionally this beer was brewed to slake the thirst of farmhands during harvest time, so it makes a perfect companion to the warmer weather. At 5.9% abv, the crisp and refreshing ale displays peppery notes in harmony with citrus zest, intriguing floral aromas and a pleasant clove flavour. It has a snappy taste and a dry finish.
Those interested in getting a glass of Patio Saison when it’s released are advised to keep an eye on local weather forecasts, as well as the Beau’s website, where official release date announcements will be posted as they are confirmed.
