History

Our ‘‘À tout le monde’’ beer was such a success that Jerry Vietz and Dave Mustaine were happy to join their creative minds once again.

The result is a delicious saison that flirts with the pale ale style. Our ‘‘Saison 13’’, with its pale amber color and red-orange hues, is brewed with thirteen carefully selected ingredients. This distinctive beer offers the perfect combination of malt, fruit and spices punctuated by its fresh hops taste.

Saison 13 is also the latest, greatest expression of Dave Mustaine’s lifelong fascination with the number 13, which he demonstrated by naming an album and a song after it.

Aging process

Potential

Like good wine, Unibroue’s fine beers have flavors that develop with age. Over time they become smoother, sometimes revealing notes of honey and candied fruit and developing a more assertive and lasting flavor. This phenomenon is known as “maderization” and is similar to the aging process of dessert wines like port.

Preservatives

Oxygen is the mortal enemy of beer because oxidation creates a stale, flat flavor. The yeast added to the bottle of Unibroue products triggers natural fermentation, consuming excess oxygen and preventing the beer’s CO2 from oxidizing. This enhances the beer’s aging potential. The high alcohol content of certain Unibroue products also lends itself well to aging by acting as a natural preservative.

Preservation methods

Store bottles upright in a cool dark place at a stable temperature between 46ºF and 61ºF.
