Year after year, the early summer air gets saturated with intense fragrances of blossoming elderflowers, and each year it reminds of a homemade fizzy drink from back in my childhood. The perfect refreshment for a hot summer day! Ever since I started brewing, with each blossoming of the elderflower I've wanted to brew a beer that resembles that drink, and almost always that season passed me by without anything being brewed. That was about to change when finally I began researching what kind of beer style would complement these intense elderflower aromas. Needless to say that the saison was an easy winner. Having researched potential recipes with people from my inner beer circle, I ended up crafting a recipe that would use abundant amounts of elderflower—hand picked from one of my hikes in the Bavarian Alps —as well as organic polyfloral honey for a bit of extra flavour. The end result was a light bodied, intensely aromatic beer with a dry finish just like you'd expect from a decent saison.
