A remix to the perennially classic Saison style, the Bloodthirsty Saison is a fantastic rustic ale that lends a fierce citrus character to the spice of the traditional Saison yeast strain.

Solid saison recipe but pricey comparatively pricey

This is a great recipe with a solid final product, very tasty, but the orange extract is expensive. I've got plenty of other summer brews I enjoy as much that don't come with the price tag of a double IPA.

It is not a bad beer, by any means.
But given the expense of "A savage dose of blood orange puree" the " fierce citrus character" and "Prominent blood orange" are missing in action.

Very nice Belgian -- nice balance. Great on a hot day.

I purchased this because a local brewery (Sugar Creek in Charlotte) makes a blood orange IPA they call "Big O." I didn't see a clone of this recipe on at Northern (hint, hint...), but I found this. My son loves Belgium style beers, having spent time drinking them in Belgium. When he tasted this, is said, "Oh Dad, that is a great Belgian.'' The choice of liquid yeast recommended (and purchased from northern brewer was EXCELLENT). As usual I make a BIG 3 liter starter, which I cold crashed and poured of the excess liquid before warming to pitch. (Big starters always win the race to the sugar). When I racked to the secondary fermenter, and added the blood orange puree, it kicked of some more active fermentation for a few days. Very nice. I now have this and the Kama Citra IPA in my Keezer, and they make a very nice contrast with each other. I'd definitely brew this again.

Excellent Saison. Blood Orange purée not overpowering at all. Just a great change of pace from the hop heavy stuff and perfect for the return of warmer days.
