22 oz bottle shared by?? Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have a sweet Belgian yeast, sweet esters, some fruity notes, slight hay, not as herbal as most saisons. Good, not great.

Bottle - Gold malts and yeast. Cloudy fold with a thin head. Big boozy light malts and a ton of yeast. I am not a fan of this style but it is done well.

Pours a light amber with a nice white head. Smells strongly of saison yeast. Fruit esters abound by the mouthful. Nice hop aftertaste! Nice job Burial!!!

Great beer and representation of the style. Poured from the bottle and at the brewery. Pours a nice, deep straw color with a good head. Notes of fruit, French hops and a strong yeast character. Lovely beer for any time of the year. I am holding one for the summertime to see how it ages.

Pours orange-amber into the glass, with a wispy head that reduces to nothing, leaving trace lacing. The nose is of French yeasty esters, what Burial Beer is known for. Lots of melons, yeasty esters, tangerine citrus, orange and finishing with a touch of ABV heat and mildly bittering hops. The grains and yeast make the palate full and slick, semi-oily and sticky, with a full-body and easy drinkability. What a gorgerous Impy Saison!
