Getting Blind With Crafty: Saison Revisited

October 10th, 2016 by Crafty Pint

It's a style that's much loved at Crafty Towers and a favourite of many brewers, as well as one that's broad and complex. So, 40 months on from last time, we assembled another blind tasting panel to assess a lineup of saisons.
