Decided to bottle this today. I turned out very dry with apricot flavors in it. ABV of 8%. It's going to be more like a dry champagne than an ale I think. Will be very interesting once it conditions.

I actually tasted this again last night. I has changed alot since bottling and is already beginning to carb up. The citris has taken over and the apricott seems to be gone. This is going to be a really good summer ale.

Saison is one of my favorite spring/summer beers. How is the ginger flavor? I want to make a ginger saison with sorachi ace hops. How did you handle the ginger?

To me, the lemmon took over and I dont taste much ginger. Next time i might up the ginger a bit. I zested one lemmon and graited a piece of fresh ginger. I added both to the boil with 5 minutes to go.
