AROMA CHARACTERISTICS:This French Saison ale yeast strain brings all the sophistication and complexity of classic Saison ale production to the home brew and small brewery setting. Spicy and peppery characteristics are prominent with an undertone of the ubiquitous fruity character.
FLAVOR/MOUTHFEEL CHARACTERISTICS:This is a highly characterful yeast strain that will dominate all but the highest hopping rates and complex malt bills. Beers fermented with this yeast will tend to be dry in the finish often with a slight drying acidity and peppery notes, aiding drinkability at higher alcohol levels. Higher alcohol beers may have an increased ester production and warming alcohol notes.
HIGHER ALCOHOL BEERS:This yeast strain will perform exceptionally well up to 14% ABV making it suitable for a large range of Saisons.
