Seasonal spice from Salcombe Brewery

SALCOMBE Brewery Co has launched a new spiced farmhouse ale, Saison (ABV 5.5%), which will be available on tap in pubs and from retail outlets.

Head brewer Sam Beaman says this spiced ale is the fourth and final ale in Salcombe’s new small batch range: “Saison style ales originated in the farmhouses of Wallonia, the French-speaking region of Belgium. Traditionally they are low alcohol, light bodied, and highly carbonated.

“We have created our Saison using a farmhouse yeast strain, and have added a selection of spices to make it our own. The result is a highly drinkable, warming ale, perfect for the winter season.”

The new Saison is brewed with added peppercorns, coriander seed and orange peel to create a floral, spicy ale with notes of honey and citrus, culminating in a crisp dry finish. It pairs well with roast pheasant, duck or chicken, but is equally enjoyable on its own
