It's time to meet your new warm-weather squeeze - a clean, classic saison with a refreshing citrusy twist. Treat your taste buds to Lemondrop Saison. Like so many perfect pairings, this recipe unites two halves to achieve a greatness neither could ever reach on their own. Like peanut butter and jelly. Mac and cheese. Hall & Oates.
Pronounced flavors of lemon, melon and herbal undertones make Lemondrop hops a natural fit for the fruity esters and spicy phenolics inherent to the classic Saison style. Pouring with perfect synergy, Lemondop Saison shines a deep golden color, with moderate bitterness, a dry finish and an astounding depth of flavor. Bright, complex and absolutely quenchable...quaffable? We mean you will thoroughly enjoy drinking it. Preferably on a porch swing. Be sure to ferment this recipe on the warm side to ensure full flavor development and enjoy it while the sun shines.
