AG10 – Biere de Mars

A spring twist on a traditional French ale. While French ales aren’t what springs to mind when one thinks of French beer, they are nonetheless and important tradition amongst small farmhouse breweries. There is a similarity to Saison here in that these are strong beers brewed in the spring for refreshment of farm hands during the hot summer months.
