An Imperial Saison style. Saison is French for "season", and is typically a summer beer. It’s a style open to interpretation. Our version is fermented with yeast from a small French Farmhouse brewery. Fruity, spicy, hoppy, and very refreshing. ABV= 7% IBU’s= 80

Pours an expected straw yellow with medium white head. Aroma of yeast, wheat, decent hops, and slight tart fruit. Flavor matches well, but is quite a bit more hearty than most saisons. Additional slight sweetness, spices, and a bit more hoppy than I was expecting also. Although it was refreshing, it wasn’t quite as much as I was expecting, but that’s not a bad thing. Very nice, wonder if an imperial saison category might be coming soon!

In short: A semi-wild uber-hoppy big body Saison that manages to remains very dry. Excellent
How: Hand-bottle. Consumed fresh the day after I received it. Courtesy of my not-so-secret-santa. Thanks D…
The look: Almost clear golden body topped by a short-lived off-white head. Although the “short-lived” is probably due to the fact that I’m drinking a hand-bottle.
In long: Nose is unmistakably Saison mixing barnyard, dry countryside wild flowers, dusty attic and some fruity esters. Taste is rather dry. I can feel the cereals, I can detect a little sugary sweetness but overall all this dominated by a dry sandy/dusty yeast character that is reminiscent of sand-paper. And the hops!! Oh man, they didn’t go easy on the hops!! Sharp bitterness with a flavour of dry flowers, tree bark, dry oranges and more. A wonderful Stimulus that doesn’t involve a chick or a farm animal licking my private parts.

Pailhead (6403) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUL 16, 2009
On tap: The aroma consists of banana, yeast, fruit, oranges, and spice. It’s a transparent golden-amber with a small white head. The flavor starts with banana, yeast, and oranges. The finish is citrusy with light hoppiness, a hint of tartness, and faint spiciness. Medium bodied with mild carbonation.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 10, 2009
Growler courtesy of dmschefke. Smells of dry malt, spicy, some fruity hints, ginger. Tastes of dry malt, some bitter hints, spice. Enjoyable, but not a saison, and more bitter than I’d like.
