This was a great brew. I modified the recipe slightly, but the Private Collection yeast really made it. I like the clean Belgian yeast. It gave it a tart, bready quality.

I modified the recipe slightly, but the Private Collection yeast really made it. I like the clean Belgian yeast. It gave it a tart, bready quality. The simplicity of this recipe really let the yeasat shine. Since it was a limited addition, I plan to try this again with European ale yeast or Belgian Shelde, and see if I can get a similar result. I like a slightly cleaner Belgian yeast. Since I brewed this one, I have brewed beers with French Saison and Belgian Saison yeasts, and they aren't quite the same. The honey malt gives it a great malty aroma.
