Picture this: You’re a Belgian farm owner in the 1700s. You need a lot of harvesting and other various work done in your fields, but you don’t have a lot of drinking water to offer the seasonal workers (saisonniers) you’ve hired. What do you give them to drink? You've guessed it: you let the saison flow freely.

It’s a good thing saisons aren’t just for farm labourers anymore, because most of us are more experienced with a cake fork than a pitchfork. But this Pitch Fork is accessible to everyone. A slightly cloudy pour, an effervescent feel, and a floral flavour bring the Belgian countryside to your mouth. As well as the expected banana flavours from the esters, there are some lemon notes and a hint of funk to get your attention, but a clean finish keeps it from overwhelming the palate.

Eighteenth century workers would be pleased (but probably wouldn’t get any work done).
