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.

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.

Decent

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.

This is REALLY Good!

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.

Wyeast French Saison. 2 weeks primary. Added puree to secondary at racking (very little airlock activity) 3 weeks secondary.

RO water base + 1/4 tsp 10% Phosphoric Acid
1 tsp Calcium Chloride added to mash

OG 1.062
FG 1.001
ABV 8.01%
