Not Quite Time to Brew Yet.
There's a season for all things, including beer recipe kits. And this seasonal kit won’t be back in stock until the time is right for brewing it. Until then, you’re welcome to hang around and read the tasting notes. Or go brew another beer [link to beer-recipe-kits] to tide you over!
Deceptively dark and beguilingly complex, this holiday specialty is brewed in the tradition of Belgian farmhouse ales. 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. 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.
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.
