A saison modelled on the classic Dupont Saison, often referred to as the ultimate reference saison that shows how awesome this style can be. This copper-blond beer yields amazingly delicate aromas paired with a pronounced hop-bitterness.
We would highly recommend you get hold of this beer to drink, and then attempt to brew it yourself, with our recipe kit we think we’ve got as close as you can get without going to the brewery for their house yeast and well water.
Please be aware that this beer uses the Wyeast 3724 strain which is renowned for stalling, so make sure you follow the Wyeast instructions to ensure complete attenuation. Further details on the yeast can be found on the Wyeast site here; https://wyeastlab.com/product/belgian-saison/
