Default My first Saison and I liked it - what are your favorites?

I had my first saison last night, or at least it was the first time I chose a saison on purpose and knew what I was drinking. It was Slyfox saison and it was awesome. A kind of an experience if you know what I mean, and now I understand why this is such a popular spring/summer beer.

I liked it enough that I think I'll brew up a few batches this spring, to have around for the entire summer. From what I think of saisons so far, they could be the beer that even the Coors Light beer lovers like. And it seemed to be a well balanced brew for men and women, not to harsh and not too girly.

What are your favorite saisons and how often do you brew them? I'd like to do 10-15 gallons and spread the joy to my friends this summer.

-DZ

Start with Saison Dupont! It's a classic.

Ommegang Hennepin is an American saison that's pretty good.

Now I feel like a saison myself... I'm getting thirsty!

I've heard of Ommegang from out of NY and tried to order one a few weeks ago at the pub but they were out. Can't wait to try it.

My favorite is Smartmouth Alter Ego. Not sure if it is the best to others but I sure like it.
