If you're a fan of the Saison du Buff collaboration beer, you'll be a big fan of this. Came out really close to what I remember it tasting like and has become a regular brew for me at least once every summer. Very refreshing, and an interesting and pleasant flavor for warm weather.

The citra dry-hopping's just for fun if you're a fan. What can I say? I like citra.

Is the herb blend fresh or dry herbs? Did you just toss them in or did you have them in a hop bag? And I assume it was at 1 min left in boil?

How did the flavor come through? I'm thinking of doing a Simon & Garfunkel Wit and was just trying to figure out the herb amounts.

I used dried herbs and I just tossed them in - no bag. Yes, it was at one minute left in the boil.

The flavor came through excellently - I really enjoyed the dimension the different herbs added to the beer. Complex, light, and interesting. Give it a shot and see if those amounts work for you. They worked for me pretty well.

I have a friend who tried to do something similar and ended up adding way too much white sage and his beer ended up tasting a bit like thanksgiving dinner, which was tasty but not what he was going for.

Sounds like a great recipe. Did you do a 90 minute boil?

I actually think it was 70 minutes the last time I brewed it, if I remember right.

Have you brewed this yet? Interested in your results/impressions.

I did…I actually brewed a lemon rosemary wit which came out very good. From that wit I racked off 1 gallon and added the fresh herbs. I don't think I had a good herb ratio or maybe I let it sit too long. The first bottle I had was very earthy and herby. I'm hoping with time it'll mellow out.

So if you did a 1 gallon, do you remember the amounts of each of the herbs that you added to it to the point where it came out very herby? Just wondering for data-collecting purposes.

Just bottled an experimental gallon of Scarborough MO Pale Ale last weekend.

1 lb. pale lme
1/2 lb. brown sugar
3/4 oz. dry Italian Seasoning (Sage-Rosemary-Thyme-Marjoram-Oregano) 30 min. boil
1/2 oz. fresh Italian Parsley 30 min. boil
Half a packet of Safale 05 Yeast

OG 1.060/FG 1.017/ABV 5.62

Bottled it two weeks after sitting in the primary. It tastes uniquely interesting. It would pair well with pizza. I will try a bottle in another week and at the end of the month and report back.
