What light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and this Saison is the sun! Literature buffs may flinch at comparing the fabeled beauty of Juliet to that of a beer, but this recipe from the pages of Project Extreme Brewing is sure to have you speaking in verse. Inspired by a passage from Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, 20 Cunning Cooks is a fruity Saison featuring Maris Otter as a base alongside wheat malt and flaked oats for a delightfully soft mouthfeel. We recommend using a French Saison yeast for their spicy character that will complement the fruity notes from the Jarrylo and Calypso hops. Dates are added during whirlpool to contribute a satisfying tartness that counterbalances the soft malt flavor and adds a layer of complexity that every star-crossed beer lover will enjoy.
