The Saison de Potiron is showing amazing promise. The WLP568 yeast RIPPED through this beer. It is already deliciously dry, in the proper farmhouse ale fashion. The yeast profile will develop over time, but I am already getting the wonderful peppery notes, with fruity esters in the background. It already has a delightfully "Belgian" taste to it, so that has me very excited. There's a nice nutty caramel malt background, with the proper light, spritzy farmhouse ale body. The pumpkin made it just about the most wonderful color I've ever seen. Tawny, autumnal orange-amber. Mmm...just delovely. The pumpkin added that delightfully earthy, squashy note to the beer as well.
Wow, it is so exciting to be back in the game. Scarlett the Galway Girl on tap right now...used it to make some ale grilled onions to put on a buffalo chicken pizza tonight...freaking delicious.
