Tasting notes #21: Saison de Cassis

July 22, 2012

Saison has a spicy peppery Belgian aroma to it. This WLP566 yeast is different from WLP565 and I prefer WLP565 because of its Dupont Moinette-like taste, this one is more neutral, bland almost.




It’s all about the yeast though and the 1/2 litre of black currant concentrate in the end of the boil has mellowed away and left only a slight harshness, more evident one or two weeks ago – the beer has matured and is now softer and more balanced but still dry.
