Bière extra-forte sur lie

Les bières « saison » furent créées à la ferme, en Wallonie, pour ravitailler les travailleurs durant la saison des récoltes. Leur brassage donnait des bières fruitées aux notes acidulées et épicées, les rendant autant désaltérantes que savoureuses. Notre belle Saison impériale offre un superbe nez de pruneaux et de fruits jaunes caramélisés, avec une touche de caramel brûlé et de poivre rouge. Maltée et mielleuse en bouche, elle s’agrémente d’arômes de poire caramélisée, d’orange brûlée et de pruneaux. Plus ronde et forte en alcool qu’une bière saison régulière, elle pourra vieillir comme un bon vin. Conservez debout dans un endroit frais et sombre.

Saison-style beers were first brewed on Wallonian farms to sustain farm labourers during the harvest season. Characterized by a spicy, tart fruitiness, the slight acidity of saison beers made them especially flavourful and refreshing. Brewed annually, our beautiful Saison Imperial offers up a superb nose of prunes and caramelized yellow fruit with just a hint of burnt caramel and red pepper. Aromas of pear ,caramel, burnt orange and prunes complement a malty, honey-like palate. Rounder and higher in alcohol than a regular saison, our Saison Imperial will age like a good wine. Store upright in a cool, dark place.
