ATLANTA — ‘Tis the saison for a fresh, new beer, Atlanta! On Friday, March 2, Reformation Brewey will reintroduce “Sabine the Seeker,” a refreshing, dry hopped French Saison, in Reformation’s Keeping Room. The celebration will last until 10 p.m., with The French Truck on-site at 5 p.m. providing delicious French bites that pair perfectly with this Saison. Available on draft and in 12 oz. cans in Reformation’s Keeping Room and across the Georgia market starting the first week of March, Sabine (5.1 percent ABV) returns to the market after a popular limited release last year, with a new, updated recipe.
This year’s version of Sabine is dry-hopped with Mandarina Bavaria and features prominent late additions of Huell Melon and Hallertau Blanc hops with notes of cantaloupe, orange blossom, and a mild white pepper finish. Saison, which is French for “season” is a style that was historically brewed to quench the thirst of farmhands and originated in French speaking areas of Belgium. The yeast strain creates a very pleasant dry finish along with some subtle pepper notes and light fruity flavors – the perfect complement to warmer weather and the start of spring.
“Whether looking for a renewed mindset, on a quest to reveal our true self, or seeking out the story and spirit of those we haven’t met yet, we’re all seeking something in life,” said Spencer Nix, CEO and founder of Reformation Brewery. “These overlapping signs create a sort of patchwork, signals that can point the way. That shared search gives us something to savor in common, and reason to search alongside each other.”
The new can art was designed byJordan Marchildon, a friend and family member of the brewery. As one of her favorite Reformation beers to date, Marchildon took equal interpretation from what the saison style means to her in balance and subtle but unique nuances.
As part of Reformation’s long-term growth strategy, Sabine is another persona in a family of beers on a journey to “set beer free.” Reformation believes there is a bit of “The Seeker” in each of us, and Sabine pays homage to that story.
