You gotta go for it. Saisons have changed my world!

I'd suggest getting Wyeast 3711 Saison yeast: it's a beast, gives great mouthfeel even on highly attenuated Saisons, and adds great citrusy esters!

You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

Personally I think of a very floral smelling pale ale it English IPA. Loaded with tons of Saaz, Willamette, and Hallertau.

I have a Kolsch mashing now and in a couple of weeks (when I have space to ferment) I'm making either a dunkel or a schwarzbier! I have to lager when I can!

Piratwolf,

Any recommendations on a recipe? I was eyeing this one...
http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f71/cott...saison-254684/

If you have another one that changed your world, I'll give it a whirl. Looking to brew a batch this week.

(By the way, I love sour beers...just not ready to attempt yet)

These three are on the top of my list as well. Especially the Tripel which has a light quality and dryness, with just enough sweetness to make things interesting.
