COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Starting with a blend of pale malt and wheat along with honey malt – a pale Canadian barley with a distinctive sweet finish – Scratch #33 includes orange peel, coriander, elderflower and honey bush for a subtle fruit balance that complements the pepper zest of Saison du Pont yeast. Following the boil, the wort passed through our hopback (filled with spices) and then began a rapid ferment at a higher than typical temperature for an ale yeast. Following fermentation, Scratch #33 was bottle-conditioned with Westmalle yeast and warm-aged for two weeks to create a vibrant carbonation with an effervescent finish.

Has a sweet, honey,slighty spice aroma. Taste is a nice blend of spice, coriander and honey blended with a bit of citrus hops. A nice complex taste. Body is full and chewy, a mouthful.

I love the aroma of honey, flowers and Belgian candy. When cold, the bitter saison flavor seems to dominate but the complex flavors really come out when this warms up with a nice mix of what I sensed in the aroma (no need to repeat it). Medium-dry finish with a nice peppery bite in the end. The carbonation is here in the bottled version but the body is a bit too light for me. Otherwise, its a fine example of the farmhouse saison style.
