First attempt at a traditional saison with a twist. The black pepper and coriander were added at the 5 minute end. The honeysuckles were picked locally and infused in vodka for several hours, 2 to 3 times until the vodka had a strong honeysuckle aroma. The vodka was added to the secondary with 2 weeks from bottling/kegging date.
An amazing beer that is made very tart by a healthy heap of Rhubarb straight from the garden. Phenomenal.The yeast gives just a nice solid hint of sour, the rhubarb kicks in it’s signature taste (and I swear a bit of a strawberry flavor as well), but none of it is overwhelming in any way. In fact, the whole thing can taste like a BudMillerCoors if you’re not thinking carefully about it (it did end up at 1.004 after all).
