Beer Profiles: Saison Royale, Roxy Rolles, 12 Beers a Falling, Sam Adams Harvest Collection, Heavy Sea Prost
Are you ready for a BIG Belgian? You’re in luck! We recently have bottled our latest beer for the Harpoon Leviathan Series , Saison Royale. Brewed with a unique blend of spices, Leviathan Saison features lots of fruity esters and spicy acidity. The finish is dry with delicate Noble hop notes. We are excited to share this new beer with our Friends.
ABOUT THIS BEER
Belgian Saisons were traditionally brewed to slake the thirst of 19th century farmhands. Our Saison Royale uses authentic ingredients with a nod to that tradition while staying true to our own craft brewing roots. German Pilsner and North American Pale malts are paired with Vienna malt, making up the hearty malt bill for this brew. It is hopped with British East Kent Goldings and finished with Hallertauers from the Tettnang growing region in Germany, adding a spicy, clean hop finish.
We fermented the beer with a Saison yeast strain to provide the spicy, earthy character familiar to the style. To accompany this character, we added white pepper and Rosemary during the brewing, which adds depth and complexity to this celebratory brew. The result is a truly complex and rich Saison, with a noble hop character and a spicy finish.

Sam Adams Beer of the Month – Dunkelweizen
A variation of the traditional Bavarian golden-yellow Weissbier
Samuel Adams Dunkelweizen is a variation of the traditional Bavarian golden-yellow Weissbier from the 15th century. Full from its dark malts and slightly tart from the malted wheat, Samuel Adams Dunkelweizen is brewed with traditional Bavarian yeast and Hallertau Mittlefrueh hops. Dunkelweizen pours a dark amber-brown color and has a complex flavor with a crisp finish. Notes of tropical fruits and banana to spicy clove and nutmeg impart flavors and aromas which give any palate a true taste sensation! When you crack open your first Samuel Adams Dunkelweizen, enjoy it with a fresh fruit salad, sweet and spicy sausages or grilled chicken with a sweet marinade.
