Petite Saison d'Ete Extract Kit w/ Specialty Grains

66 Review(s)
This session-strength Saison of summer pours tawny-gold and perfumes the air with tangy yeast and pungent hop aromas. The flavor is lightly earthy with spicy, flowery hops and a grain-and-bread malt character; caramel malt dukes it out with Saaz and Styrian Goldings through the middle before a palate-cleansingly dry finish.

Great taste Review by WWJCD
Rating
We followed the instructions closely, didn't add anything else. Primary Fermentation at 76 degrees, tried a Cold Crash 2 days before bottling (2 weeks in Primary total). We could only get the ABV to 3.6% so that was disappointing, but the clarity was great (oh yeah used some Irish Moss) and the taste is really good. After 2 weeks in the bottle we don't have enough carbonation (used the priming sugar option), trying to be patient. I hope some bottles live to be 4 weeks old. Going to try again, but maybe use a yeast starter next time as well as some Candi sugar. (Posted on 12/28/11)
Amazing Review by John

I can't believe how great this brew was, in just four weeks. It's carbonated beautifully with a mounding head. Non-beer drinkers like it a lot, and it's an easy beer to drink. (Posted on 12/7/11)
First Time - Nailed it Review by Kevin

This is my first home brew beer I've ever made and it turned out excellent! I followed the recipe and didn't add anything extra like a lot of other people here did and it is still great. The only thing I didn't follow was the final instructions saying to wait a full two weeks for it to bottle condition as I opened my first a week and a half after bottling but it still tasted amazing.

Easy with Great Results Review by Drew
Rating
Added a bit of corn sugar to up the abv. Also added orange peel and corriander. Fermented Wyeast 3711 at 80 for just 8 days. Gravity was way down and I was short on beer so I bottled. Even after just a week and a half in bottle this beer is excellent. Its light, refreshing and true to style.

The beer has a thin head that sticks around for a while. There is a definite crisp hops character and the beer tastes very dry. Smells of lemon, pepper and maybe a bit of strawberry. Mouthfeel is dry, but not thin. (Posted on 9/5/11)

Crisp Summer Brew Review by Richard
Rating
I waited 2 weeks after bottling to drink and it was crisp and smooth. The longer the bottle’s sat the better it got. Very refreshing, light, and crisp. Had better hop flavoring than I expected! (Posted on 8/25/11)
Best brew that I've made thus far Review by John
Rating
I fermented in the primary for two weeks, and it's been bottle conditioning for a week. I couldn't wait til next week, so we cracked one open. Wow! If this is still green, I can only imagine how good this will be once it's fully conditioned.

I might take it a step further and do a secondary on my next batch, just to reduce sediment and provide a little more clarity. But man, this is fully carbonated, beautifully colored, great head, great lacing, and has a great nose but isn't too hoppy on the tongue. (Posted on 8/18/11)
Will Brew over and over Review by beerman

This beer is just [felicitously] delicious. No other way around it. Great taste if you like saison's and even some wit beers. (Posted on 8/12/11)
A month later, even more fantastic! Review by MattN
Rating
My inital review was after just a week in the bottle. Now that it's been aging a month, this is now my favorite summer quencher. I absolutely LOVE the regular Saison and think it has a better overall flavor, but its much heavier and leaves me....full....after a 22oz bottle. Which is a shame because I love the flavor. The petite is crisp and light but still quite flavorful. Try it with a slice of lemon after you've mowed the grass... (Posted on 8/8/11)
Better than I anticipated Review by NHRobert
Rating
I brewed this one just to get out of my Nut Brown rut, and wanted a good summer beer to get me through July and August. I was pleasantly surprised - it turned out really nicely.

I gave it 3 weeks in primary and 3 weeks of bottle conditioning and that was perfect. If anything, I'd cut the 5oz of priming sugar down a bit - mine has and holds a better head than you'd expect for the style. (Posted on 8/2/11)
