Hey guys, I'm looking to branch out and open up to some new beer styles and I decided to give Saison a go. I just had a Ommegang Hennipen on tap the other night and really didn't care for it. To me it was over the top fruity/sweet. I couldn't get much past half way through it before switching back to a tasty IIPA. I had heard it was a decent Saison, so I'm wondering what you Saison drinkers out there think of it and if this is a pretty good representation of the style? Any other recommendations/favorites?

I wasn't a huge fan of Hennepin either, for me it was a little too wine-like. I'm still up for giving it a second shot though. I'm pretty sure you can't get Boulevard in CA, but if you could find somebody in the Midwest to trade with their Tank 7 is really good IMHO. Great Divide's Colette is also one of my favorite Saisons, but it doesn't come out until April I think.

Saison Dupont is a classic. I really dig it.

Sounds like I'll be on the lookout for Tank 7 for sure. I'll keep an eye out for the other suggestions as well. Feel free to keep the suggestions coming if there are any others. Thanks guys!

The Brett'ed version of Tank 7 (Saison - Brett) is incredible.

Also a big fan of Fantome, Funkwerks, Bruery's rye saison, all of the Stillwater saison versions, and Brooklyn Sorachi Ace
