Lallemand Belle Saison yeast is the first & only true Saison yeast strain available in dry form. Saison-style beers are considered the classic "Farmhouse" beer style with characteristic fruity, estery, and spicy/peppery notes. Saison is an excellent choice for home-brewing as no cooling is required. Belle Saison is a strong fermenter, with fast start-of fermentation time and great ethanol tolerance. In fact, fermentation can complete in as little as 5 days under optimal circumstances.
