Blood Saison

Border X Brewing’s flagship beer, Blood Saison, is inspired by a Mexican agua fresca with jamaica (hibiscus) and agave nectar for a sweet and tart flavor with light hints of biscuit malt. Owner David Favela, a first-generation immigrant from Mexico, draws inspiration from traditional Latin flavors rather than trying to duplicate the flavor profiles of European beers.
