Product details

Deceptively dark and beguilingly complex, this holiday specialty is brewed in the tradition of Belgian farmhouse ales. A generous malt bill with highlights of butter toffee, chocolate, dark fruit, and bread tangles with the earthy, spicy funk of Wyeast French Saison strain and a single addition of bittering hops to strike an evolving balance.

Unlike most saisons, intended to refresh and sustain farmers doing manual labor, this one is engineered to complement rich holiday fare and sustain you through long winter nights. The porter-like color tricks your palate into expecting burnt, roasty notes and perhaps even a full body, but the reality that hits your mouth is a lean, attenuated beer with a snappy, estery, slightly tart edge and a warming, peppery finish. No spices here - all the complexity comes from malt, yeast, and your skill as a brewer! Brew now for Christmas, and stash away at least a six-pack of this age-worthy saison to enjoy on into the spring.

Yeast cells are active and living organisms. A slight expansion in Wyeast packaging is normal and does not indicate poor yeast health. Certain strains, including 1056 and 1338, are more prone to expansion than others. Please visit the Wyeast FAQ for more details or enjoy this video with Wyeast microbiologist Greg Doss.
