Saisons are daz­zlingly com­plex. Ni­a­gara-on-the-Lake’s Oast House Brew­ers Sai­son

(LCBO 359877, 750 mL, $11.75) mixes aro­mas of cracked pep­per­corns, le­mon, fen­nel, pear and baguette. Turn up the farm­house funk with the barn­yard notes of white pep­per­corns, and make the hefe’s cit­rusy notes sparkle with a hit of salt, which helps flavours bloom. Start by moist­en­ing half the rim of a large, red wine glass with a slice of le­mon, then mix

1⁄8 tsp (0.5 mL) crushed pink Hi­malayan sea salt with 1⁄4 tsp (1 mL) crushed white pep­per­corns and rim half the glass. The re­sult is a dry, ef­fer­ves­cent drink that is sure to be a con­ver­sa­tion starter.
