Petite Saison d'Ete Extract Kit w/ Specialty Grains

SKU: U1940

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.

Loved by all Review by Mackay Clan Brewing
Rating
Awesome beer. I have been looking around for a long time trying to find a beer that Coors Lite drinkers, experienced homebrew drinkers and people that really don't even drink at all would like. Well this is it. Everyone loves this thing and you are able to drink it all night long. I did add 1lb of Corn Sugar 15 min before flame out to bring it to a 4.7%abv. If you are thinking of getting it just do it. You wont regret it. (Posted on 3/29/11)

Stuck to the Recipie Review by Barry
Rating
This was my first successful non-IPA brew. The wife likes the spicy floral notes of the Belgian beers. I decided to try this one and followed the recipe to the letter. The beer is fantastic. Light and very flavorful. The flavor starts through your nose before the glass even touches your lips. Great stuff. I'll keep a good IPA on tap for myself, and this one for the wife. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. (Posted on 12/22/10)
solid saison Review by Conor
Rating
I actually cheated, adding 3 lbs wheat DME to kick up the ABV. Also added 2 cups of thai basil with blossoms and 1 Tbs rainbow peppercorns. Safale 58 yeast. Yeast contributes a lovely banana, clove Belgian character, basil and pepper makes it slight vegetal, but in a good way. Despite clocking in at 6% this is a favorite for the ladies given its not the typical hop monster or uber filling amber. Can't really claim that I am reviewing the actual beer, but I'd certainly give this a try if you are on the fence. Some folks are turned off by the banana flavor in the Safale 58 so you might try the Wyeast recommendation or one of the many White Labs Saison yeasts. (Posted on 11/30/10)
Fantastic Brew Review by Paulino

Very enjoyable. I added ginger, coriander, and sweet orange peel. In the end it is a light, easy to drink beer with an nice floral hop flavor. (Posted on 10/29/10)
Best batch, brews itself Review by Druchyun
Rating
I've haven't experienced the power of yeast until this batch. A very active fermentation creating a clean, citrusy beer of astonishing complexity. Was it drinkable? All positive reviews from beer fans and naught alike. Highly recommended for a quick easy great beer. (Posted on 10/20/10)
Awesome quick beer Review by Summer special
Rating
I had this in the primary for 1 week then a bottle for a week, can taste the spiciness already but after another week the beer has started to settle out and has become a great beer already after 3 weeks. I will order this again and play with the recipe. (Posted on 10/2/10)
Gone in a week Review by Michelle in Parkton
Rating
We made this before my in laws came for a visit (I needed beer to get through the week). It was amazing. It has a fruit aroma and taste but not sweet. We're brewing it again this weekend. My husband thinks this should be our house beer. (Posted on 9/28/10)
Weak, like little girl Review by Johnathan
Did not turn out as expected, lacking the full body flavor that most of their other beers are known for, low gravity. As with above reviews, people added other ingredients, indicating that this kit does not perform well without enhancement. (Posted on 8/21/10)
Superb Review by Brewham
Rating
I really liked this. I added another lb of wheat DME to up the ABV. Used the 3711 Yeast. My fermenting was in typical summer house temps around 80F. It came out spicy and delicious. After 3 months (6 weeks in the bottle) it really mellowed out and the spicy character subsided. Like they say - when you drink the last bottle, the beer is ready to drink. I will do this one again or I might go with the regular Saison as opposed to the petit because I like my beer to have a bit more kick. (Posted on 8/5/10)
