4.7 / 5.031 ReviewsFinally found my go-to SaisonOk.. I love a good saison, but have struggled to find a recipe I really like. This is it. Reminds me of Stillwater's Cellar Door.. Nice flavor, just a hint of the lemongrass and organge. Very nice dry, slightly peppery finish. Honestly, I can't believe how good it is for such an easy brew. Like other have said, a little darker in color, but still tastes light. The Wife love it too. Just brewed a second batch that I tweaked with Brett Yeast and little extra hops.. but that one will be sitting until at least June. Will follow up..April 13, 2016Smelled greatI brewed this over the weekend and the smell once all the additions were added were wonderful. I cannot wait to try it. Final gravity was slightly lighter than on the box 1.048 but I contribute that to the loss at the bottom of the brew kettle. One recommendation is to use bags for the hops and orange and lemongrass addition to increase volume yield.March 21, 2016Great Aroma and TasteWow the Orange and Lemon grass aroma really come s through. A nice clean taste and head.December 16, 2013Brew was exceptional. I've addedBrew was exceptional. I've added it to my annual must-do list.September 30, 2015A dry wheat saison that holds up to extra hopsFirst of all out of the 15 or so batches i've done, this batch got down to a super low gravity of 1.004, resulting in a very dry finish that I'm stoked about. I added another oz. of hops, some coriander and lemon peel, plus dry hopped with hops and spices to get a nice lemony tang. Golden in color and super-drinkable a week after bottling. An easy brew, I have absolutely no complaints.May 16, 2017Purchased
6 months agoGreat beer for summer BBQsMy first really successful brew. Lots of fruity notes and has just a little spicy bitterness from the hops.August 1, 2016Solid recipe needs some time to get better1 week in primary and then about a week or so of cold crashing and carbing in the keg and its great. week later and its gotten even better. really easy drinking and a ton of flavor.April 12, 2016Great Summer BeerI made this one a few months ago. Gave it the 15 min. Hot Stand at the end and then chilled it off. Had some floaters in the primary but no big deal. Left in the primary 2 weeks, 2 weeks secondary, and tried one after one week in the bottles. No carb at all. Another 2 weeks later, this beer had a nice off white head with residual effervescence from the bottom of the glass.Definitely give it the extra time, it's worth it.This beer has a great nose to it. The lemon grass really adds some nice esters and spice notes to it, and you really taste the orange peel. I may add some honey to it next time just for an extra flavor note. Definitely a great summer beer. Hide some for later, this one will disappear fast.August 29, 2013Fragrant, Spicy, Refreshing, Easy to BrewThe NB marketing e-mail bit me and I ordered this kit the day I saw it. Was a tad bit apprehensive as I love the customer reviews and feedback from the tried and tested...plus positive tweaks to recipes...but none here as this guy was a new creation. Figured I'd add my 2 cents.Brewed 05/16/13 (Extract Kit)OG - 1.048Added at flameout:-5lbs Wheat LME-1lb honeyWanted to preserve the light color and possibly some aromatics from the honey so made the bulk of fermentables late additions.Also did a 10 minute hot stand at the end of boil to pull as much out of the flavor additions as possible.Made a 2L yeast starter with Wyeast 3942 Belgian WheatOtherwise followed the directions to the letter.Yeast was pitched and allowed to ferment for 15 days at 68F. Racked to secondary for 10 days at 64F. Final gravity was 1.010 Kegged and carbed 40F@17psi (3 something volumes of CO2).Impressions:Look: Nice golden color. Yeasty haze. Solid white foamy head...and lots of it (but that could be due to my kegging)Smell: Spicy and Citrus/Light Fruits AHOY! Lotta nose here. Not too much hops, maybe a little Saaz. Lemongrass really comes through.Taste: Good spice, peppery, tart and dry. Some citrus. Refreshing. Not much bittering, which is terrific and totally works.Feel: Light, finishes tart.Overall: I like it. Good summer session beer. Could drink a bunch. It was exactly what I expected from this kit and have to say so far in my limited brewing this has been the best smelling unfermented wort I've ever had the pleasure of making.June 22, 2013Excellent Summer BeerYou really can't go wrong with a Northern Brewer Kit. Kegging this weekend, but from a racking "sample," all is good.This is the kind of beer you sit back after doing some work in the yard. Also should have a very good pairing with Asian food.I used the Danstar Belle Saison dry yeast.August 21, 2013
Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 7 answersI love a good saison, but hate sour beer. Is this sour at all?BEST ANSWER: This was my first brew and I intentionally took the steps to make the beer have some sour characteristics. The yeast that you choose and fermenting environment play a part in the level of soreness and additional saison characteristics. Pitch a general yeast, such as 05, and brew it in the 60s temps, practuce good santizing methods and you should avoid most if not all sourness.
On a side note, this beer was well receives from both the sour lovers and non-sour loving friends of mine.I purchased this kit last week and will probably brew this weekend. I input the hops into an ibu calculator and for my situation shows an ibu stregnth of 50 for my 4 gallon boil. This seems high for a saison. Has anyone else felt this to be slightly high? What affect would reducing the first hop addition to .5 oz to bring the ibu to 29?BEST ANSWER: I brewed this a year ago in 4 gallons. Found the result to be most excellent using 45-, 15-, and 5-minute additions with a tack-on of a 15-minute hot stand after flame out. Did come out with some hoppiness, and happiness from associates, and it blended well with the spices. Kits lime this aren't especially driven by the BJCP, and in this case the result was exceptional. YMMV
