Epic Brewing's Utah Sage Saison smells like traditional Thanksgiving dinner. The recipe starts with a balanced malt base of 2-Row, Marris Otter, Pilsner, Wheat, and Rye malt. “We add barley flakes for body and boil for our standard amount of time for most brews, 90 minutes,” says Epic Brewer Kim Collins in Denver, Colorado. “During the boil, we use high alpha acid hops that kick off lemony-citrus notes,” she continues. Five minutes before the end of the boil, fresh rosemary, thyme, and sage are added in a mesh bag. Finally, Utah Sage Saison is fermented with Belgian yeast, which brings a refreshing quality to this earthy saison.
