Aspen Belgian Farmhouse Saison

One thing craft brewers are getting better and better at here in the US is brewing the traditional Belgian ales that pioneered the beer world so long ago. A great example of this maturation is found in Belgian Farmhouse Saison from Aspen Brewing in Aspen, Colorado. This straw colored beer brings some hops to the table, but the farmhouse yeast and effervescent mouthfeel are the real stars of the show. Judges at the World Beer Cup agreed this year, as it topped almost 100 other entries to win the Gold in the French and Belgian-Style Saison Category. In celebration of the award, a special run of the beer was recently released.

  • Westbrook Gose Beer

    What is old is new again in craft brewing circles, as brewers dig up recipes from brewing's storied past. One of the latest — and greatest — in this line is Westbrook Gose, a German-style wheat beer brewed with coriander and sea salt. The result is pure summer refreshment in a can as the Gose is both sour and a bit salty, providing a tart sipper that clocks in at just 4% ABV. Leave to the brewers at Westbrook in South Carolina to bring a historic German recipe back from the dead.

  • Spencer Trappist Ale

    What most people know about Trappist Ale is that it is brewed by monks in Europe. The nine monasteries that brew the delicious beer are were all in Europe until monks at St. Joseph's Abbey in Massachusets threw their hat in the ring with Spencer Trappist Ale. What they came up with for America's first Trappist beer is a 6.5% Belgian style pale ale with some fruity, yeasty characteristics. And despite being new to brewing such a historically revered beer style, the monks have managed to make something that tastes like it could come straight from one of the well established European monasteries.
