Brewed all grain version with WLP565. Mashed @ 149, fermented @ 77F with aluminum foil over the airlock vice liquid to cut down on back pressure and was kegged in 14 days. Little bit of haze from the wheat, but its cleared up after 3 weeks in the keg. Great citrus flavor from the zest with a little spice from the GoP; a little like Boulevard Tank 7. I made this to replace AHS Pacific Saison my kegerator and I like both, but prefer this for the complexity.
Brewed about a month ago, kegged 4 days back. It's still carbonating, but i went ahead and poured a pint this evening, and hot damn! Wonderful esters, very smooth flavor with a slightly peppery finish, but not overwhelming at all. This was the first thing i ever brewed all grain a while back, and it came out terrible, but i held off on a review, mostly because i figured it was something i did wrong, sure enough it was, this time around is a totally different, and quite wonderful story. This will be an awesome refreshment for the hot months to come!
I just racked this beer into the secondary yesterday and what a great smelling beer. The color is magnificent. I used a late addition method for the batch, and I used a Platinum Series White Labs Saison II yeast. This yeast is different than the Saison I where it will ferment a little quicker. I made a starter for this yeast and put into on a stir plate for 32 hours. The yeast count was dramatically increased vs. aerating, which I did with with my last stout I brewed. I would highly recommend buying or builder your own stir plate because it will make quite a difference in your brewing. I will leave additional comment once bottled.
Great Beer! I used the T-58 yeast, started fermentation at 68 and put the fermenter outside while it was in the mid 90s (techinque from the Farmhouse Ales book). Everyone in my Brew Club loved it.
This was my second batch ever, and I've had tons of comments on it, a truly great recipe. Even with a single-stage fermentation, it was tasting great after only 1.5 weeks in bottles. Beautiful orange color, and plenty of taste without being heavy. Highly recommended!
