First introduced as part of Belgian Beer Week in 2021, Valavond is our rustic Belgian saison.
If you’ve followed our brews you might already have noticed that our saisons typically lean towards the French style, which is cleaner and dryer without as strong of an ester present. To really ring in Belgian Beer Week, we wanted to put out an ester-heavy powerhouse.
Crafted in the spirit of Belgian farmhouse tradition, this light and effervescent saison is packed with lemon zest and woodsy, spicy Belgian esters. Wheat and pilsner malt with just a pinch of rye give a nod to the typical grain bill of whatever the farmhouse had available. The rye adds a soft spice and complexity to the finish, which will have you coming back for more.
Subdued grassy notes, hints of pine, and bitter citrus peel come through as it warms in the aroma and flavor.
This beer is a perfect example of what made us fall in love with saisons, and we think you’ll agree.
The name Valavond comes from the Flemish word for evening or dusk, which is a particularly lovely time to enjoy this beer.
