Belgian Farmhouse Ale
(Re) Introducing Helios Ale. We’ve rebranded the former V-Saison and now introduce Helios Ale. This bottle-conditioned, Belgian-inspired ale remains the same refreshing ale that you enjoyed as V-Saison, however, in a more approachable, less expensive 22 oz capped bottle. Helios Ale has an earthy, aromatic hop start and shifts into aspects of lemon peel and black pepper. This is a quenching, invigorating ale, despite its substantial strength.
This style was developed to refresh farm workers during harvest season in its native Belgium. Though such high alcohol is surprising to imagine as suitable for ‘refreshment,’ it does seem to fit the Belgian philosophy on enjoyment of their beloved beer.
Malt: imported 2 row malts
Hops: whole flower German, Czech and British hops
Heady with an earthy, aromatic hop start, this flavorful ale slides into flavors of honey and mildly tart fruit. Leaving a refreshing citrus and pepper impression of dryness, this is a quenching, invigorating ale, despite its substantial strength.
spicy foods and aged goat and sheep's milk cheeses
Year-round in 22 oz. bottles and occasionally on draft
