Eager to try a new Okie brew, and being a fan of saison, I was excited to finally locate a bottle. Poured a hazy light gold with a hoppy nose, but taste fell a little flat and transparent.

Bottle. Light straw, billowing white frothy head. Aromas of pineapple and other tropical fruit, sour Brett funk and hints of pepper. Bubblegum, pineapple, Brett and pepper flavours which are all dominated by alcohol. Perfect high carbonation and refreshing for a beer of such high ABV

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rating #1607 - 16.04.2015 - On tap at Sugarbowl. Pours a hazy straw colour with a frothy white head and lots of lace. Aroma is of brett, pineapple, pepper, citrus, soft fruits, esters, alcohol. Clean mouthfeel, medium carbonation, medium alcohol warmth. Taste is a crisp sweetness, tempered with herbal notes, mild pepperiness, mild sourness from the yeast. Great "imperial" saison.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Robe blonde trouble, mousse peu abondante. Nez tout en élégance sur des notes fruitées, des agrumes, une pointe d’ananas et de houblon frais sur un fond de gingembre confit. Bouche à l’attaque fraîche, élégante, tout en finesse, fine acidité et note d’agrumes en finale. Tout ce que l’on attend d’une saison. Un bière de plaisir et de soif.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours straw like golden color, haze, with stable white foamy head.
Visually high carbonation.
Aroma: champagne like aroma, with notes of grape, wine vinegar, hints of spicy and florals (saaz hops).
Flavor: moderate malt flavor, with noticable wheat malt (banana like esters), supported with spicy and floral notes of hops and peppers. Taste is firstly malty sweet, suddenly become tart, sour, with champagne like character, and with very dry, slightly bittersweet, sour, peppery finish. Dryness lingers long in aftertaste. Body is medium, texture is smooth, carbonation is high.
Alcohol warmth is surprisingly noticable and higher as I suspected.
