Sabine The Seeker is on a journey to set beer free.

Story of The Seeker

Whether we’re 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. The name Sabine has been a personal favorite of ours for some time. As part of our long-term growth strategy, Sabine is another persona in a family of beers who are on a journey to set beer free. There’s a bit of The Seeker in each of us, and Sabine pays homage to that story.

Style Overview

Returning in Spring 2018, Sabine The Seeker is a refreshing, dry-hopped French Saison with a low alcohol content at 5.1% ABV. This year’s version 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 mild white pepper shines through on the finish.

Pairing well with most foods, her humble origins begin in the farmhand’s thirsty work. Contemporary versions borrow from an extensive family tree. Traversing continents, taking on the local accent, and blending stories, languages, and traditions, the saison is a style that in many ways defies categorization.

Saison is a French word meaning “season.” Historically brewed to quench the thirst of farmhands, the style originated in the French speaking areas of Belgium. The French also pay homage to the specific yeast strain we use in this beer that creates a very pleasant dry finish along with some subtle pepper notes and light fruity flavors.

“Historically, saisons did not share enough identifiable characteristics to pin them down as a specific style, but rather were a group of refreshing summer ales made by farmers. Each farm brewer would make his own distinctive version. Although most commercial examples now range from 5 to 8% ABV, originally saisons were meant to be refreshing and it is thought they had alcohol levels ranging from 3 to 3.5%.” [source]

What’s the story of the art?

The 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.

Designed by Jordan Marchildon, a friend, family member, and Reformer. This is one of Jordan’s favorite Reformation beers to date. She took equal interpretation from what the style means to her in balance and subtle but unique nuances. And then there’s the geek in all of us, which gave her further inspiration from a favorite Star Wars Rebel character, Sabine Wren.
