Loral Canyon Saison

A twist on Drew’s classic Saison using YCHops new product “American Noble”. These are the left overs from the Cryo hop process and promise American hop characters, but in a more subtle, muted fashion. Naturally, that intrigues me! So I took the peppery, citrusy Loral “American Noble” and used it in a batch of Saison. Works like a charm! (Thanks to YCH for sponsoring the podcast and providing the debittered leaf/American nobles for this brew)
