Bloodthirsty Blood Orange Saison All Grain Beer Recipe Kit
Impaling your senses with complex flavors, Bloodthirsty Saison is a remix of the perennially classic Saison style. A savage dose of blood orange puree adds additional fierce citrus character to complement the estery, spicy and peppery tones spawned by the traditional Saison yeast strain. The result is a fantastically rustic ale featuring a pristine deep golden color, a ferociously brilliant white head, and an unrelenting dry finish.

Turned out great I would suggest fermenting around 72-75
I can't believe that no one has written a review on this great Saison. Just bottled yesterday and tasting the hydrometer sample was very pleased with the great flavor. My version is a little stronger than the recipe because I had about 4.6 gallons into the fermenter and elected not to top-up.
