COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Draft - Tinted gold, nice sudsy, bright white head. Spotty lace. Aroma of yeast, coriander, cardboard, some bubblegum. Pretty sweet, too much bubblegum, some spice, notes of nondescript fruits. Meh.

willisread (2281) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 14, 2016
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a clearish gold with 2 fingers of foam that dissipate fairly quickly. Big bubblegum, candy sugar, pina colada nose with some light apple as it warms. No funk to be found. More of a weizen bock / generic saison hybrid. Feels heavy, overly boozy and waaaayyyyy to sweet for a saison. Typical saison swill from the states and I’m American.

Oakes (15490) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 29, 2016
Slight haze. Light gold. Light piña, mellow apple, quite sweet, and the esters come across as a bit much.

On tap at St. Augustines on Rare Beer Tap Takeover. Golden, white head. Aroms is floral hops + Munich malt (similar to German Wits). Same taste and aftertaste. Like a hybrid of Saison and Weissebeer :-) Good.

darbeer75 (440) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2016
Aroma: very funky with parmesan cheese/basement aroma; Appearance: clear amber pour with thin white head and some lacing; Taste: interesting banana with some bubblegum; Palate: medium body with long, banana finish; Overall: can appreciate the quality but not quite my thing. Would probably not buy again.

George999 (376) - Colorado, USA - JUL 21, 2016
From the tap at old Chicago, the pour is hazy and a reddish orange color, the aroma is bananas and hints of clove, the taste is strong banana and hints of something bright cannot peg it. The finish is earthy and lingures. The mouthfeel is medium to thick.

Great full bodied and tropical saison. Lots of body and fruity sweetness. Not exactly a light beer, but heftier body worked with all the flavor. Yum.
