Originally designed to be a hoppier version of our flagship Saison, the accidental (but fortuitous) addition of two extra bags of Munich malt balanced the hop bitterness leaving us this very unique Imperial Saison. Tropical fruit flavors coming from the unique New Zealand hop variety, Rakau. Notes of passion fruit, mango, peach, pepper and ginger.

Purchased at College Liquors in Grand Junction, CO; enjoyed on vacation after mountain biking in Fruita, CO. Appearance is a cloudy gold with a rich white head. Aroma or pear, sour yeast, light mango, smells pretty good. Taste is really good, mango comes out very well, very flavorful, lots going on. Need to look out for some other beers from this brewery.

jzzbassman (1557) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 12, 2016
Bottled. Pours golden with a fluffy sticky white head that lasts the duration. Lively carbonation streams from the bottom of the etched glass. Aroma of must, bubblegum, fresh hay. More like a big golden, but does have a pepper bite which balances out the big banana tropical flavors. Creamy palate. Quite enjoyable if unusual for the style.
