“The St. Feuillien Saison came to me as a flavorful Monday-afternoon surprise. I likened the drinking experience to an afternoon on the beach in San Diego.  After a cold, cloudy, overcast morning of June Gloom, the sun has come out in an act of warming recompense.  Sitting comfortably in the sand as I watch people file in and out of the water, there’s only one thing left to do to enjoy the day—reach into the cooler and crack open a cold one. The first sip is exciting, it’s refreshing, it’s remarkably drinkable, it’s a St. Feuillien Saison.”
