COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Imperial Saison captured a bold celebratory shout of apricot and peach in a bottle. Both bright and bold this is a lively truly living beer. Bottle conditioned with rare Belgian yeast and soured to illuminate its copper hued body. Ginger and Grains of Paradise promiscuously dance with Styrian Golding hops. Wipe winter from your brow and enjoy now or attempt to resist its siren song and lay down in your cellar.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2009
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a huge orangey head. The aroma has notes of malt and fruits. The flavor is sweet and acidic with notes of fruits and malt, as well as some notes of yeast, and citrus, leading to dry acidic finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of madmitch76. Pours a hazy deep golden with an off-white head. Perfumy, spicy nose. Medium body, very lively carbonation, tart, citrusy, fruity and very spicy. Finish is tart, but the massive carbonation is a drag. An odd bird indeed. 091109

Hazy amber beer. Thick white head. The head is quite orange and lemon sherbet. Dry palate. Very tart fruit (but not quite sour). Orange and lemon in abundance, enough to make you blink. Even malt base. Undertone of banana. An odd beer and I don’t think it will define the ’Imperial Saison’ style.
