Petite Saison d'Ete Extract Kit w/ Specialty Grains

Product Review (submitted on May 30, 2014):
I've done a handful of brews now, but I'm still a novice. I have to say, this kit really impressed me. I followed the instructions completely, the only tweak I made was I added a 1/2 pound of clear Belgian candi sugar that I had lying around. as I saw a few people say the ABV was pretty low on this. Mine came out almost exactly on 5% ABV with the candi sugar. 2 weeks in the primary, bottled after that, it was fully carbonated after a week at room temp, didn't taste green or anything. Fully drinkable 3 weeks after brewing. Mine came out tasting a little more witbier-like, very similar taste to Hoegaarden, but with less pronounced floral notes. Pale yellow/beige color, slight haze, few islands of foamy head which hang around, nice carbonation with 4oz of dextrose in a 5 gallon batch.

Overall, this came out seeming like it should've taken a lot more time and effort to make, but it didn't! Great job NB!
