Voyageur *Saison – Lager*

. August 23, 2013.

Our Voyageur Saison is brewed with all the traditional ingredients including malt grown in the Franco-Belgian region around the borders of France and Belgium. We also used: German Munich malt, Turbinado Sugar or Demerara Sugar, Wheat malt, Vienna malt, and a touch of roasted malt for a bit of orange color. We used Saaz hops from Czechoslovakia and East Kent Golding hops from the UK. Then we spiced the brew in the kettle with Sweet Orange Peel and Grains of Paradise.

Our Voyageur is named as such as because we have embarked on another new beer adventure by blending our House Lager yeast with a different yeast, namely a Belgian Saison yeast, at a specific time during fermentation to try and capture both the essence of a Saison and the crisp, clean flavors of a lager. The Voyageur is characterized by a big bubble gum, banana, and ripe apple aroma. 

A dry and crisp finish helps make this complex “Mixed Culture” (because of the yeast blending) beer very thirst quenching. All in all Belgian inspired beers should be explored and not pigeon-holed into one dimension of experience like how many beers are defined.
