We believe in tolerance. We believe in taking a stand. And we believe beer has the power to change the world.

That’s why we’re standing with over 40 North Carolina breweries who have rallied together to “brew some good” with a beer called Don’t Be Mean to People: A Golden Rule Saison created to fight NC’s discriminatory House Bill 2 and raise awareness about LGBT issues. Because these issues don’t care if you’re gay, straight or indifferent…these issues hurt all human beings.

But we wanted to do more than stand with our NC brewing brethren. We wanted to make a difference, too. So, with the blessing and oversight of Erik Lars Myers of Mystery Brewing and Keil Jansen of Ponysaurus Brewing, creators of the original Golden Rule Saison, we bring you the Don’t Be Mean to People recipe kit – A dry, medium-bodied Saison crafted with a blend of Pale malt, Munich and Wheat malts with a healthy dose of Sorachi Ace hops.

Just like the original Saison, proceeds will be donated to Equality NC and QORDS, organizations that benefit the LGBT community in NC. So if you want to make your very own stand, you can brew up a batch of peaceful protest…and change the world, one pint at a time.

Aroma

Spicy phenolic nose with a complex ester and hop aromas of citrus, gooseberry, and moderate vinifera notes.
Appearance Dark straw to light golden orange color with moderate clarity. Persistent dense cap of brilliantly white foam laces down the glass from the first to last sip.
Flavor Medium fruity and spicy flavors set against bready graininess provided by the Pilsner malt. Moderate-high vinous hop flavor. Finishes very dry and very slightly acidic.
Mouthfeel Medium-light body with an effervescent carbonation level. Low alcohol warming present. Moderate-low creaminess added by the addition of wheat malt.
Overall Impression Easy drinking yet complex, dry and refreshing.

I don't know
Everything arrived on time but the batch is still in secondary. I have no idea what the outcome will be but the recipe was simple and sends a good message.

Asshats shall not win
I just brewed this and it is raging in the primary as I write. Purchased the brew because I'm disgusted with my state legislature. Keep it up!

Smooth, refreshing, and beautiful from the keg
I got excited with this one. I love the concept, and the execution of this simple saison is incredible. I considered giving it a 5 star rating, but it is a bit bitter for a saison in the afterglow. It's got a very smooth flavor at the start, with hints of citrus and hop balance to the sweetness. Give it a few seconds. Then wham! a bit bitter. Perhaps this is in direct correlation to what this beer is all about. Definitely give this one a try, you won't be disappointed!

Pretty good. A little dark.
This is the third beer I've brewed, so take what I say with a grain of salt. I brewed the extract version.I think the color is a bit dark. Mine's a bit more orange or light brown than blond. That could be an extract thing. I more or less followed the instructions, which as I recall had a late extract addition. Maybe I didn't make sure that my burner was off when I added it? I'm not sure. Consider doing that, and also moving more of the extract addition to later in the boil, especially the liquid stuff.It's got a good saison flavor and aroma. I think it might be a little on the sweet side, though. I might consider moving up some of the hop stand additions to earlier in the boil so that you get a little more bitterness from them. The Sorachi Ace hops seem to impart more of a dill than lemony taste. I don't find that to be a bad thing in this beer, to be honest. It's interesting and kind of funky.It's possible that my attempt at brewing the beer is under-attenuated. I didn't really oxygenate well, and I've heard of some people cranking up temperatures beyond what the instructions to this kit recommend for saisons to make sure the yeast keep chugging away. I just primaried for three weeks then bottled. I will say: Danstar Belle Saison is a pretty cool yeast.I'm drinking bottles that have conditioned for 2 weeks and have been in the fridge for about 5 days. I still have more bottles conditioning at room temperature and others in the fridge, so if it gets better (or worse), I'll repost under my same name.
