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 Beer, Quick Turnaround Review by Andy
Rating
For the last six months, I have gotten into Saisons. I like the mellowed belgian character they can provide. This is is great because it provides a very fast beer (probably 2 weeks, I did 3 weeks from boil to drinking), with an excellent Wyeast French Saison strain. I really liked how the bottle carbonation went; very fine bubbles. I would use this just to bottle with! I threw rosemary, lemon, and extra Saaz into the boil, and this probably my favorite homebrew yet. (Posted on 7/15/10)
Nice departure from typical ales Review by aRodSlaps

Wasn't sure I'd like the Wyeast 3711 based on the fermentation smell. But it had just the right amount of tangyness. Bittering hops were right on. Certainly deserves the Petite label, but in a good way. I'm glad I bottled in 22 oz bombers because this will be a great summer session beer. (Posted on 7/13/10)
not Petite Sasion Review by Bill

I just bottled my Petite Saision, It is good but probably not a Petite Saison. My kit had 3.15 of Bavarian Wheat LME instead of Pilsen. It is not what I expected but has a nice flavor and should be very nice in two weeks (Posted on 7/9/10)
Really Good Tasting Brew Review by Apollo Reed

This kit was my first attempt home brewing and I have to say that it turned out better than expected. Bottled after 2 1/2 weeks in the primary. Tasted first bottle after 2 weeks conditioning and very happy w/ the way this brew turned out. So far everyone likes it and I plan on brewing this one again.

Crowd-pleasing wonder! Review by Matt
Rating
Okay, so I thought this beer was so-so. I LOVE saison, but I bought this one because I already had two high-gravity beers on tap, and wanted a saison that was a bit more drinkable.

However, this was a HUGE hit. We had some people over, and the keg was killed in a night. Granted, after the first few, who knows. But really, people raved about this one.

I only single-fermented it, and might try dual-fermentation in the future. Also, I might add some lemongrass to kick up the citrus - it was VERY malty, but well balanced. Also, I had a low gravity...only 5%, which was nice.

Brew this one...you will like it! (Posted on 5/23/10)
