Belgian saisons (and the farmhouse style ales inspired by them) are arguably the beers best suited for quenching your thirst. Traditionally the dry and hazy ales were specially formulated and brewed to wet the whistles of farmhands while they toiled under the hot sun. And just as the warm weather starts heating up around these parts, Marc Vetri’s Alla Spina is devoting ten-plus taps to the style for what it’s calling Saisonale. During this celebration of these seasonal sippers, you can sample them in their most classic form, like Brasserie Dupont’s benchmark Saison Dupont and contemporary interpretations like Dogfish Head’s grape smut-infected Noble Rot.
