Imperial saison. Our special yeast strain gives this beer a little funkiness and is accented with tellicherry black peppercorns and orange peel. At 9% abv this is probably one of the strongest summer beers you will encounter. The boozy note adds to the overall flavor of this beer. This is the deep end of the fun pool, please use the buddy system.

Very hazy orange beer, small off white head. Mild fine carbonation in the smooth and semi dry palate. A little malt cream. Fairly intense orange and a nice kick from the pepper. Touch of lemon. Semi dry finish. Hides the abv well. Black pepper heat linger.

Tap sample at MBGSF 2011. Poured a hazy orange color with a large frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate ground pepper, fruit and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy pepper, sweet & sour flavor with a medium to heavy spicy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. I would recommend this to a friend.

A hazed blonde to orange juice colour with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet fruity major with orange and light sulfur, light pine needles. In mouth, a sweet orange pulp with ginger, coriander, light maple, interesting. On tap at emporium.

16 ounce can courtesy of northernbrews. Thanks! Pours a hazy orange-yellow color with a large frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of bready malts and big spice notes, including pepper and the citrus peel, as well as big citrus and stone fruit notes. The taste is bready malts, stone fruits, citrus, lemongrass and faint pepper. Medium-full bodied, slight heat. Nice beer. EDIT:: I’m glad I got this rating in before Sandy knocks out my power! Phew!

Dogbrick (11614) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 11, 2012
This beer pours a hazy amber-gold color with a medium thin white head that evaporates quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of ripe fruit and spices. Medium body with flavors of yeast, off funky fruit and spices. The finish is fruity with a peppery aftertaste. Interesting concept but seems disjointed in the execution.

crossovert (11423) - Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2012
This one tastes like grapefruit juice. Decent bitterness, sweet but nowhere near 9% sweet. Alcohol is well-hidden. A great surprise.

deyholla (10216) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 25, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2009 On tap. Poured a bright gold with a thick white head. Aroma was full of sweet yeast notes as well as some orange peel and an undertone of pepper. Flavor was a nice combination of sweet yeast and an unexpected pepper flavor that turned out quite nicely. There was also an undertone of citrus.
