About Dogfish Head Zeno
This Brewpub Exclusive saison is an interesting paradox; refreshing yet flavorful, light but complex. The Saison yeast strain takes center stage and contributes complex aromas of pineapple, mango, papaya, and pepper. A healthy dose of American hops at the end of the boil compliments the tropical fruit aromas with their own notes of citrus rinds and fruit. Farmers in Belgium and France used to make beers to quench their workers after a long day in the fields and each beer reflected the personality and tastes of the individual brewer as well as the region in which it was brewed. Here we have our version of a Farmhouse Ale which combines our love of American hops with respect for the Belgian brewing tradition.
