It’s time to release another homebrew collaboration, this time with Scott Jackson. Scott is an award-winning homebrewer and just recently was bestowed with the 2012 Colorado State Fair Best of Show! The winning ale was a wheat wine aged in a 5gal mini barrel. I had a chance to taste this beer on tap at Scott’s and it was worthy of the win, very delicious.
Scott proposed we brew his famous Saison Automne and release it this fall. A fairly straight-forward imperial saison but with a few more specialty malts for flavor/color as well as homemade dark candy sugar which adds color and complexity. I couldn’t repeat this beer even if I wanted, unless I got more yeast from Scott’s own Belgian yeast blend! This beer comes in at 9.6%ABV and 31IBU’s.
Released at 4PM on Oct 3rd, 2012. Decide for yourself if this is a good saison, who knows it may be your new fall favorite.
