Brewery Ommegang (Cooperstown, New York) recently announced that Short Sleeve Saison will be released as the brewery’s newest Spring Seasonal offering beginning at the end of February.
To provide their fans with a thirst-quenching beer that is perfect for any springtime activity, the brewers at Ommegang have crafted Short Sleeve Saison to be one of the most sessionable brews ever produced by the brewery. This straw-colored Saison features a floral, subtly fruity aroma and a flavor profile “of lemon tartness followed by mild wheat character.” At just 4.5% ABV, Short Sleeve Saison finishes crisp, clean and incredibly refreshing.
“Short Sleeve Saison is one of our most easy drinking offerings to date,” says Justin Forsythe, Innovation Manager at Brewery Ommegang. “The delicate yet complex balance between lightness, spice, and fruitiness is sure to please the palate and leave you desiring another sip. As the weather begins to warm again, we hope this beer is a go-to for refreshment, and something light enough to keep you anticipating the warmer months ahead.”
Short Sleeve Saison will officially hit distribution at some point in late-February to early-March. This offering will be available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at fine beer establishments located in Florida and other select markets within Brewery Ommegang’s distribution network. Saisons are always a beautiful option when it comes to warm weather drinking, so make sure to give Short Sleeve Saison a try at some point this spring. Prost!
