A classic take on this Belgian style. Talking Tree has citrus fruit esters with some earthiness supported by heavy carbonation and featuring the traditional addition of spelt, an ancient grain that lends some almond and toffee notes. Named for the Terry Allen tree sculpture on campus at UCSD.
Saison or Farmhouse Ale
Meaning 'season' in French, Saisons were typically given to farm workers during the summer months to hydrate because the water wasn't potable. Hence they're also known as Farmhouse Ales. They are quite complex with lots of spice and fruitiness due to the special yeasts used. The spice profiles are varied including peppercorn, coriander, ginger, anise, orange, clove, vanilla, and more. They have a tartness that is characteristic as well.
