Beer Style: Saison

Saison vibes

I’m interrupting the barrage of brewery build posts to bring you a bit of a reflection on a saison I recently brewed. I had some Sorachi Ace hops in the freezer from last summer’s saison, and I had been meaning to brew a saison with the Saison Dupont yeast. I had also been meaning to do a saison with oats. All of these would serve as parameters to this saison recipe. As evidence by how quickly the kegs kicked, this beer was quite nice. It was the last beer brewed on my old system, and it was supposed to hold me and my guests over until I was back brewing. It didn’t stand a chance!

Bursting with Sorachi Ace

One of my favourite Saison’s is Brooklyn Brewery’s Sorachi Ace. It is a remarkably dry, highly effervescent and quenching beer with an interesting, but not distracting dimension added by the lone hop variety, Sorachi Ace. Naturally, I wanted to brew it myself… so I did. It’s all gone now so I guess it went alright! I made sure to take some tasting notes before it was all gone.
