- 4.7 / 5.031 ReviewsA dry wheat saison that holds up to extra hopsFirst of all out of the 15 or so batches i've done, this batch got down to a super low gravity of 1.004, resulting in a very dry finish that I'm stoked about. I added another oz. of hops, some coriander and lemon peel, plus dry hopped with hops and spices to get a nice lemony tang. Golden in color and super-drinkable a week after bottling. An easy brew, I have absolutely no complaints.May 16, 2017Purchased
1 year agoSo good I hardly got to drink any myself!!!Brewed this one right before I had back surgery and couldn't drink during my recovery, so most of it disappeared quickly. I stopped taking my medication early so I could get a few pints before it was gone. I will definitely brew this again, I might even keep it a secret until I have a few pints for myself!!!December 8, 2016Purchased
over 2 years agoGreat beer for summer BBQsMy first really successful brew. Lots of fruity notes and has just a little spicy bitterness from the hops.August 1, 2016Finally found my go-to SaisonOk.. I love a good saison, but have struggled to find a recipe I really like. This is it. Reminds me of Stillwater's Cellar Door.. Nice flavor, just a hint of the lemongrass and organge. Very nice dry, slightly peppery finish. Honestly, I can't believe how good it is for such an easy brew. Like other have said, a little darker in color, but still tastes light. The Wife love it too. Just brewed a second batch that I tweaked with Brett Yeast and little extra hops.. but that one will be sitting until at least June. Will follow up..April 13, 2016Solid recipe needs some time to get better1 week in primary and then about a week or so of cold crashing and carbing in the keg and its great. week later and its gotten even better. really easy drinking and a ton of flavor.April 12, 2016Great serviceMy order arrived on time and intact. Quality all throughout. Can't wait to craft this amazing Saison. Thank you!March 21, 2016Smelled greatI brewed this over the weekend and the smell once all the additions were added were wonderful. I cannot wait to try it. Final gravity was slightly lighter than on the box 1.048 but I contribute that to the loss at the bottom of the brew kettle. One recommendation is to use bags for the hops and orange and lemongrass addition to increase volume yield.March 21, 2016Addendum to David P. Review of 11/18/15Ok! I'm happy. Give this brew a good 2+ weeks extra bottle conditioning and the flavors start bursting through. The citrus is much more apparent and the spicy back taste is impressive. I refrigerated a dozen pints at 4-1/2 weeks and my review is now up from 3.5-4 to a solid 4 maybe 4-1/2. I have 2dozen more pints conditioning. Can't wait.December 29, 2015Nice BrewI brewed this beer using the Siphonless Big Mouth Bubblers - Ported 6.5 and 5 gallon fermenters (see reviews). That made things easy. Now on to the beer. I brewed according to instructions with the exception of adding the honey at beginning of boil (read instructions wrong). Then bottle conditioned for 2 weeks. The appearance when poured is darker than many saisons, a good medium ice tea color with a pretty, short head. The aroma is very light. Good bread but only a little citrus considering the lemongrass and orange peel. Nice taste with a good balance of malt and hops. Again citrus is very very slight. I recommend using the full ounce packets instead of the 3/4 ounce the recipe calls for. A fair spicy finish. My main concern is the lack of that earthiness I like in a farmhouse ale. Still, a tasty beer. The feel in the mouth is smooth and the good carbonation refreshes. Maybe after a few more weeks conditioning the lost citrus & earthiness will come through. Overall, an enjoyable beer that I'll brew again, though I'll add more lemongrass and orange peel with a different yeast than the dry Danstar Belle Saison to up the barnyard funkiness. A solid 3.5-4 rating.November 18, 2015
- Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 13 answersAre you supposed to leave the lemongrass in the wort when transferring to fermenter?BEST ANSWER: It is not necessary to move the lemongrass to secondary. I have done the complete fermentation with lemongrass left in. Secondary was recommended but I found the taste is just as good if not a bit better if all fermentation is done without moving into secondary.I love a good saison, but hate sour beer. Is this sour at all?BEST ANSWER: This was my first brew and I intentionally took the steps to make the beer have some sour characteristics. The yeast that you choose and fermenting environment play a part in the level of soreness and additional saison characteristics. Pitch a general yeast, such as 05, and brew it in the 60s temps, practuce good santizing methods and you should avoid most if not all sourness.
On a side note, this beer was well receives from both the sour lovers and non-sour loving friends of mine.I purchased this kit last week and will probably brew this weekend. I input the hops into an ibu calculator and for my situation shows an ibu stregnth of 50 for my 4 gallon boil. This seems high for a saison. Has anyone else felt this to be slightly high? What affect would reducing the first hop addition to .5 oz to bring the ibu to 29?BEST ANSWER: I brewed this a year ago in 4 gallons. Found the result to be most excellent using 45-, 15-, and 5-minute additions with a tack-on of a 15-minute hot stand after flame out. Did come out with some hoppiness, and happiness from associates, and it blended well with the spices. Kits lime this aren't especially driven by the BJCP, and in this case the result was exceptional. YMMV
