Product details

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.

Lemondrop Saison

I tried it when it was still a little immature and room temp.(not a bad thing)
The flavor was deep and rich, so I can't wait to taste the full potential of this beer, when on tap and cold.

Excellent Beer, Aggressive Yeast!

Beer is great, smooth, strong, excellent for summer. Brewed with BE-134 and it was a fast and aggressive fermentation. Don't drink the yeast! I thought I did a good job of syphoning, but there was still some active yeast when I cracked a bottle after a few days, and it wrecked my stomach. Either wait a few weeks before drinking, or if you are kegging, dump the first few pints.

should be "grapefruit-drop"

Extract kits don't come any simpler. Fermented in low to mid-70s, result was an orange-hued ale with flavor more like an IPA than anything Belgian, and a hint of citrus that was more grapefruit than lemon. Should be refreshing for the obnoxious Florida summer that started back in February.

Great taste

This recipe was easy to brew and the outcome was pleasurable. The beer has a hint of lemon and bitterness at the same time. The color is more of a caramel color and carbonation is light. All in all a good beer. My ABV ended up being around 5.9.
