COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Ungstrup (29332) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2008
Bottled. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet wtih strong notes of cherries, and light notes of malt - not me. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of straw, hops, and quite a lot of cherries, leading to a slightly acidic, dry and woody finish. Weird - I don’t think the components fits together.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2008
(Bottle 65 cl) Pours an almost clear golden with a rough, off-white head. Spicy aroma with fruit and yeast. Medium body with a sweet fruitiness, but not exactly a berry-like fruitiness. Also there isn’t really much oak character at all - perhaps a wee whiff in the nose. 190908

omhper (19378) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2008 Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Hazy golden, no head. Artificial vague cherry jam aroma. Sweet and fruity with bold, hard mouthfeel - like chewing on plastic. Some marzipan and orangey hops. Medium bodied with severely sharp metallic edges and some late bitterness. Sticky, bold and clumsy with flavours that don’t go together at all and a malt structure from hell. A travesty of the saison style.

Bottle, courtesy of a hardcore Danish crew
Hazy deep blond color. Peculiar aroma, light cherry kernels and perfume, cakes. Dry mouthfeel, strange flavor, a bit of wood, harsh feelings. Disgusting flavor.
