Cherry saison is concurrent with the best of summer weather. The days are long and warm, and the spring blossoms have gracefully turned to plump drupes. Much in the same way, our Imperial Cherry Saison undergoes subtle but noticable changes while cruising from kettle to bright tank. Like the sun ripening fruit, a pit stop makes this beer better. Cherry Saison is aged with French Oak staves, imparting overtones of spice and balancing the natural sweetness of the cherries. Cherry Saison is the first in this series to incorporate oak aging. Enjoy it as a dessert beer, or tilt it back while sitting under a shady tree on a warm summer afternoon.

PhillyCraft (2850) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2011
Pours wheat golden with a slight amber tint. Huge, frothy white head which clears out rather quickly. Aroma of oak, hops, cherry, wheat, malts, and slight bready hints. Body is mild with a pleasingly crisp tartness, especially in the finish. The cherry is not too evident in the flavor; much more earthy and wood taste. Overall a bit of a disappointment, as I excpect a lot from Southern Tier, but still a very enjoyable, drinkable saison.
