3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
sample at big texas beerfest Transparent gold, shimmering puffy white head. Pine, soap, lemon rule the nose. Flavor is yeasty, thick, peppery with zippy carbonation and lightly frothy bitterness, soapy and overall dry, nicely attenuated to allow softer elements to play. A bit too yeasty, not quite dry or funky enough, not much fruit either, but pleasant

Bottle. Pours a foggy, fizzy golden color with a thick, frothy white head. Delightful, citrus aroma with a grassy finish. Passionfruit flavor. Mangos and kiwis. A little pepper and ginger in the finish. Really solid saison.

On tap at The Pour House. Cloudy light pour with a big white head. Aroma is a good bit of fruit and yeasty funk with a little alcohol. Taste is a little hot, lots of fruit, baking spice, and banana. Peppery, yeasty finish.

Good saison -- but I think that there’s a reason why you don’t see too many imperials. This burns a bit hot.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This my be my first beer considered an Imperial Saison. That title seems a little strange to be honest since most saisons I have are on the lighter, more seasonable side. Light pour. Floral aroma. Sweet and crisp flavor, light body. A little yeast and spice. Light fruits but I didn’t taste the tropical variety.
