The beer is a Belgian-Style Saison brewed with Belgian Pale Malt, Belgian Vienna Malt, Oats, Wheat, Coriander, Sweet Orange Peel, Curacao, Grains of Paradise, Orange Blossom Honey and White Labs Belgian Saison #565. Ground white pepper aromas dominate from high temperature fermentation. Rumor has it that the Saison yeast strain originated as a wine yeast. Pilsner malt adds a bready malt flavor and the spices add a subtle fruitiness. It is full flavored, dry and highly drinkable.

Brother Levonian Saison was brewed from a recipe created by a recently departed friend of the brewery, Dave Levonian. Dave was our very first customer at Home Brew Mart in the early 90’s. He consistently made fantastic, national award-winning homebrews and traveled the world to collect the finest, most delicious bottles of beer he could find to share with his friends. He was always smiling and could be found anywhere there was a good beer. His untimely passing, due to a very short battle with Non-Smoking Lung Cancer, was a real shock to all of us in the San Diego Beer Community. We have used Dave’s award winning Saison recipe to recreate one of his favorite styles of beer.
