The name of the beer also gives a tip-of-the-hat to Saison Dupont from the Brasserie Dupont brewery in Belgium, considered by many to be the best saison beer in the world.
The saison style of ale originated in southern Belgium. The word means "season" in French, indicating it was brewed in the winter for drinking in the spring and summer. So it's generally dry, light and refreshing. The style is mostly defined by the special yeast which is used.

The finish is interesting: Dry and thirst-quenching as it should be, but you also get the saison yeast and the honeydew making a quiet comeback.
Saison du Melon is an excellent beer for our Israeli summer, and at 4.4% alcohol, you can enjoy more than one. For Shapiro and its brewing team, this is a fine achievement.
