Lemondrop Saison Extract Beer Recipe Kit
It's time to meet your new warm-weather squeeze -- a clean, classic saison with a refreshing citrusy twist. Treat your taste buds to Lemondrop Saison. Like so many perfect pairings, this recipe unites two halves to achieve a greatness neither could ever reach on their own. Like peanut butter and jelly. Mac and cheese. Hall & Oates.
Pronounced flavors of lemon, melon and herbal undertones make Lemondrop hops a natural fit for the fruity esters and spicy phenolics inherent to the classic Saison style. Pouring with perfect synergy, Lemondop Saison shines a deep golden color, with moderate bitterness, a dry finish and an astounding depth of flavor. Bright, complex and absolutely quenchable, quaffable? We mean you will thoroughly enjoy drinking it. Preferably on a porch swing. Be sure to ferment this recipe on the warm side to ensure full flavor development and enjoy it while the sun shines.

Brewed with the French saison yeast at cool (for a saison) temperature (mid 60s F). Very nice variation on the saison style. To me, the lemon from the hops is very subtle but adds a bit of interesting complexity.
It is a very easy and good tasting beer
Just not that great of a taste.
I like to make Saisons and this may be my favorite recipes.
Came out well but much darker than expected. If you follow the recipe to a T the beer will come out very dark. It still tastes great, but after scouring forums and using Northern Brewers own support I was told to add malts later in the boil, keep the boil temp down, and boil more water to combat this. Will try next time.
