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!

Tmoney99 (11100) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Bottle shared by Dr Silverworm. Poured hazy golden color with an average frothy white head that was lasting with good lacing. Medium to heavy yeast, herbal, peppercorn and citrus aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy complex hot & sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & hot finish of moderate duration. Solid complex beer for style.

Pours a clear apple juice gold color witha white head that disappears very quickly. The first thing I get in the aroma is a nice orange and coriander note with some good yeasty qaulities. I also detect the anise notes from the fennel and fennel pollen. Hellbilly grew and harvested the fennel and fennel pollen. He has given me both from his garden and I can honestly detect the aromas. Movin to the flavor. The coriander and fennel are the two things I notice the most upon the first sip. Orange blossom honey, yeast, some hay and grassy notes finish this one up. What a really nice beer. Would be awesome with some nicely prepared food.

Ibrew2or3 (7107) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Pours gold with a thin-ish sort of white colored head of foam. The aroma emits sweet apples, loads of herbal rosemary, basil and anise. Nice and interesting for sure. The taste is similar with apple and pear and honey like sweetness riding on top of a firm degree of pleasing herbal goodness seemingly coming from the same characters noted in the nose; rosemary, basil and anise. Cool brew with plenty of interest and great balance of flavors.

22oz bottle, thanks to MikedR. Mildly hazy golden color. Some fine particles suspended in the body. Couple loose dots of lace. Interesting, unique spicy nose. Some unusual spices, lemon / lime zest, smooth light to moderate strength soft carbonation. More dry in the finish. Nice herbal notes to it, lightly savory. Some zesty sweet taste. Nice, interesting tasty saison

TheAlum (5950) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2012
Bottle shared at the GTMW ticket line (Madison, WI). Pours a rich dulled yellow straw hue. Touches of rich haze, frothy brighter white head atop laces ok. Good ring of head. Aromas are gentle straw, bready malts, touches of apple, pear, and gentle white pepper elements. Dry touches of florals and grass, gentle yeasty spice, some mellow herbal qualities. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied with some dry spice up front, florals and gentle yeast, touches of peppercorns, with some mellow apple, pear, and a hint of citrus. Some mellow touches of honey, the middle is a touch sweeter. Quickly moving back to dryness into the finish. Gentle spice, earth, and dryness. Despite all the crazy ingredients, this one offers a simplicity and dryness into the finish. Solid.

22 oz. bottle shared by DrSilverworm (06/2013). Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor has a big herbal and spicy note showcasing the fennel and peppercorn, pale malts, grass with mild sweetness from the mesquite syrup. The flavor had more peppercorn and less fennel. Somewhat dry, medium bodied. Interesting enough.

Yellow with a white head. The aroma is full of yeast and orange. The flavor is about the same. I get a lot of orange and lemon notes, as well as some yeast and biscuit malt. There is also a bit of spice in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
