since the zombie thread has well and truly awoken, i'll add this, i was at a little beer gathering where a couple small commercial brewers and a few homebrewers were pouring, and one homebrew conglomerate was serving a saison, and it was delicious, everything in balance, full of flavor, tart, spicy, dry but with body, super drinkable on a warm day, when i went back for more i asked for the saison, the guy said you mean the 2% abv one? i said no way, the tasty normal one, he said nope that stuff is 2%, i could have hugged him. i know saisons aren't for everyone but it's certainly a style that can happily exist at either end of the abv spectrum if you do it right. got to wait until next summer for me though... time to start on the autumnal big beers!
