COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sonoran Brewing Company’s inaugural Chef Series beers are an integration of all things LOCAL. Local Brewery, Local Chefs, Local Ingredients, Local Artist, Local Charity, Local Legacy and Local Legends. Inspired by our passion for great F&B(Food & Beer) pairings and our desire to support and showcase the LOCAL talent here in Arizona, it was only a matter of time before destiny played a hand in connecting all those involved. Our first of Four Seasonal Releases the 7 Wives Saison is from Jeremy Pacheco; Executive chef at LON’s at the Hermosa Inn. This brew features fresh whole wehat berries from Chef Jeremy’s Family Farm in Marana, fresh pink peppercorns from Singh Farms in Scottsdale, whole fennel and fennel pollen from LON’s garden, Chef Joshua Reisners garden and McClendons select in Peoria, mesuite syrup from Cotton County Jams in Phoenix as well as locall produced orange and coriander. Chef Jeremy came up with the name for his brew as a way to pay homage to one time LOCAL Artist, Legen and founder of Case Hermosa(now the Hermosa Inn) Lon Megargee who was married 7 times. We proudly share a portion of our proceeds with our LOCAL charity of choice, the Waste Not Oraganization of Arizona www.wastenotaz.org. All art work for the Chef’s Series is by LOCAL artist Ellison Keomaka. Enjoy this unique collaboration and thanks for drinking Locally!

22 oz. bottle in a trade. Thanks to BOLTZ555. Snifter showed hazy gold with big bubbly head that died quickly. Small ring left in the wake. Nose of orange, coriander and wheat. Taste has a lot of pepper, wheaty yeast and a light hint of the fennel pollen the brewer speaks of. Has a bit of orange pith, which kind of makes your mouth dry. Lighter in body with a zesty mouthfeel. Nice brew.

Bottle courtesy of Dak. Very interesting beer here. The spices really are quite strong particularly the fennel and peppercorns. The base saison is quite light and refreshing but I almost think it could have been better suited as a bigger beer to hold up to and balance out some of the assertive spicing. Still nice.

way too much fennel for me, tastes like a cheapish wit without the belgian wheaty flavors.

I had high hopes for this beer. The concept and recipe sounded great! When you poured the beer it smelled of fresh fennel and hops. Beautiful amber golden color. Nice head. However when you taste it it's quite muddled in flavor. The most dominating taste is black licorice unfortunately. I think they just had one or two things too many in the additions. Don't know if the pepper is conflicting with the fennel or what's going on. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Chipalsa (1309) - Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle - thanks to OmegaX
Appearance - Hazy yellow, sea foam lacing
Aroma - Peppercorn, basil, twizzlers
Taste - Cherries, sourdough, hops, pineapple

Twas’ a surprisingly fruity saison, you really taste an almost Twizzler-cherry twang among the light and grassy undertones. VERY nice on the palate as well. Cheers brah!

Thanks, Josh, for sending me a beer you had a part in brewing! Nose is tons of fennel and citrus with some nice bready and spicy notes. Lots of licorice. Body is orange/yellow with a white head and nice lacing. Taste follows with tons of fennel and some spicy citrus notes. Very good and drinkable.
