This looks really good. I haven't used saphir before, but it looks great for a pilsner. How do you think it would do in an oktoberfest or maibock?

i'm drinking this now. it's hard to say how it would work in something maltier, but I can't imagine it wouldn't at least be OK. In this pilsner, it's a fresh and juicy noble flavor.

Did a 60 minute mash at 150 and 60 minute boil. Kegged this and its been lagering for about three weeks. Sampled a couple ounces last night and it is REAL good! It came out a bit cloudy but I don't mind cloudy beer.

I used them as a sub in a french ale two brothers clone and it tasted awesome, i used pilgrim for bittering and sapphire for flavor and aroma.Best sample i tasted to date.

Saphir has a really unique flavor profile to it. It's like orange zest and italian parsley. I think it works better in conjuction with some hallertau or perle but thats just me.
