BBBELG3 – Dour Saison *BETA*

Availability: Limited, Bootleg BETA. This is potentially a one-time only release based on response.

Source: Highly regarded, family saison brewery near the French/Belgian border.

First time release from Bootleg Biology!

Classic saison flavor kicked up a notch. This strain produces high levels of fruity esters backed up by the spicy/clove phenols you expect from a saison culture. It will finish dry, peppery and with a bready richness.

Do not be afraid to take this culture into the low 80sF (27-29C) when primary fermenting to really drive up the ester production. Fermenting in the lower range will help keep the phenolic character more balanced.

    This made a very flavorful Saison. I harvested some yeast and will definitely brew this some more.
    I used the Saison Experimentale recipe from the Maltose Falcons page, and pitched at 63 degrees. The yeast slept until I raised the temp to 68 at which point it took off. On the third day I raised the temp up to 80 until for 4 days. Bottled at 2 weeks.
    It tastes just like the description, lots of saison flavors with fruity and peppery flavors. Finished dry and clean.
    Very yummy.
