Orange Saison Sour Cream Ice Cream

Orange Saison Sour Cream Ice Cream 3

You need to know about Saisons.

One of my favorite summer beer styles, it’s crisp, fruity, nice carbonation and great spice. It’s prefect for those summer cookouts, it pairs well with everything from potato salad to ribs. Saisons is a style that was born out of a farm house in Belgium, and lets be honest nothing bad can ever start in a farmhouse in Belgium, it was made for consumption during the summer months. Maybe it’s just a coincidence that it also goes incredibly well with ice cream, or maybe the Belgian just knew what they were doing when they invented the perfect summer beer. It’s a great one to try if you’re new to craft beer, and after a near beer extinction, it’s back in a big way. Saisons are an easy style to find these days, and prefect for those of your friends that don’t think they like craft beer.

For this ice cream, I need an assertive saison, one that has bold flavors and good kick of spice. Of course, Stone never disappoints when you’re looking for a beer full of flavor and this Stone Saison was the perfect man for the job, the big flavors can stand up to sour cream and orange and hold their own. But I’m sure you’re not surprised, no one ever accused stone of being subtle.

Is it possible I could just churn this by hand instead of using the ice cream maker?

I’ve never done it but I have heard of people putting it in the freezer and stirring it every 15 minutes for two hours. Not sure if it works, might end up with some crystallization

Wow, this ice cream sounds amazing! I’ve never really gotten into making ice cream (although it has been in the 90s here for the last few days…maybe I should reconsider) but I am going to have to give this one a try. NOM.

OMG! I just made a batch of this ice cream with a local microbrew saison (I´m from Norway), and it is awesome. I expected it to be tasty, but there is just so much more flavor than I expected there to be since there is more dairy than beer in it. I can´t even describe it. You are my beer-hero!
