Fermented between 25 C and 28 C (77-82 C) for about a month. Started fast, slowed after about 3 days then went down about 0.001/day and finished in exactly 1 month (30 days). Dry hopped for the last 7 days.

This one turned out very well. Only had some problems of clarity, as weather was very hot and I had no success in cold crashing without temperature control methods. The yeast is really upfront, while hops are subdued, giving that citrusy touch which i think pairs very well the spicy yeast notes. No alcohol at all despite the 7.2 ABV. Definitely not a belgian IPA, would call it a belgian saison with an american twist.
