French Saison

L’odeur du Printemps: The Smell of Spring in a fruity French Saison style

L’odeur du Printemps is our first saison in a very long time, and we were overdue brewing one.

This recipe uses French yeast and (mostly) German malts and hops, coupled with some honey malt for a little added sweetness to accentuate the fruit notes found in the Mandarina Bavaria and Huell Melon hops. A little German pale wheat malt rounds out the mouth feel and gives the beer some legs in the glass along with some head retention. The French saison yeast is fruity itself without any of the banana esters found in some Belgian strains.
