A refreshing Belgian-style saison, Songbird melds lemon and citrus hop flavors with hints of apricot and stone fruits. Boasting a bubblegum-like aroma, Songbird is well balanced with the spice of fresh-cracked pepper and distinctive Belgian fruity esters. Landing at 4.8% with a light, dry finish, Songbird is gentle on the palate and soars with flavor.

Food Pairings: Songbird pairs well with simple, rustic foods such as roasted chicken with garlic and herbs, which latch onto the grassy, floral qualities of the saison. It also plays well with a salad of mesclun greens and arugula, and the earthy tang of goat cheese, but can still hold up to a cracked-pepper encrusted steak, and the bubbly, fizzy finish will cleanse your palate.
