COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Seventeen is a Saison Ale brewed with pink peppercorns, orange zest, lemon zest, and grapefruit zest. Brewed to the classic “Weyerbacher anniversary requirement” of a strength of 10% abv or more, Seventeen weighs in at a style-obliterating 10.5% abv. Seventeen releases subtle notes of fruit, berry and pepper upon pouring. You’ll notice a balanced sweetness with a touch of citrus and spice with a dry and peppery finish.
Seventeen is a once-and-done release only and will not be here for long! This style of beer should age very, very well. Be sure to get some before it’s gone!

From a bottle. Pours opaque amber gold with lots of particles floating around, a creamy frothy white head, and lots of lacing. Tastes like lemony citrus, wheat, lavender, pine, herbs. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like herbs, lemon, wheat, bread, and alcohol.

sonnycheeba (3470) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy gold with creamy off-white head. Aroma is cereal malts, floral notes, black pepper, lemon zest, and Belgian yeast. Flavor is chewy bready malts, spice, light floral hops, citrus fruit esters, and booze; dry finish. Medium/full body and low carbonation.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Appearance: Cloudy orange breads under a fluffy pithy head which fades with arcs of lace marking the glass. Lingers as a bubbly pithy puddle in the middle.
Nose: Coriander and cumin. Orange peel. Green banana peel. Golden brown crunchy on the outside, soft and moist on inside, French and Italian artisanal breads. Candied ginger. Spicy husked grains. Rye seeds and star fruit.
Palate: Spicy, tropical, yeasty, and of the harvest. Green bananas, plantains, and whole pineapples. Lots of spice and prickly tropical fruits in the back. Candied ginger and cumin. Faint grains of paradise.
Final Thoughts: A solid Saison, Weyerbacher’s Seventeen hit all the right notes, bringing to mind the harvest with a hint of tropical notes. I’d gladly drink another.

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks to Leighton, always fun to try these anniversary beers. Hazy gold in colour with a small white head. Smooth palate, a little soft. Floral yeast and sweet generic fruits, tinned. Mild spice. Light crisp finish. Tasty.

Scopey (6661) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2013
Bottle thanks to Leightonian. It pours hazy golden orange with a small white head. The nose is orange, nectarine, apricot, hay, toast, light vanilla, wood and spice. The taste is crisp, orange, tangerine, sherbet, alcohol heat, spice, toasty coconut, vanilla and wood with a dry, spicy finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. A bit hot perhaps, but it still makes for a interesting and enjoyable drinking experience.

maneliquor (3057) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 7, 2013
Bottle cheers to Leighton. Golden pour with a big white head. Looks great. Nose is full of herbal hops, lemon curd, leafy greenery, grass, yeast, lemon morange and light funk. Taste has loads of lemon curd, lemon tart, pepper and spice, grassy hops. Alcohol shows itself with quite a bit of warmth although isn’t too bad for the abv. Spices right on the back end. Solid stuff

A: Hazy Golden Straw/Orangish Hue, Passes Some Light, White Head Ring, No Lacing S: Oranges, Corrainder T: Oranges, Grapefruit, Corriander M: Mediocre Carbonation, Light to Medium Bodied, Mildly Sweet, Mildly Bitter Overall, for a saison, it was poorly carbonated and just a boring nose and flavor...very disappointed for an anniversary beer.

Leighton (10698) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2013
Bottle shared at Bruce’s in London - this one I got at New Beer Distributors in NYC. Pours mostly clear gold with a frothy white head. Aroma holds doughy white bread, lemon meringue, hints of straw. Medium sweet flavor with lots of pale bread, herbs, yeast, semi-dry citrus. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish with further yeasty, doughy pale malts, subtle spices, hay. Strong but pretty tasty overall.

SlovakSniper (3093) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 4, 2013
Une petite bouteille bue dans mon camp de chasse. Une robe lourde qui tombe profondément dorée. Une petite tête mousseuse bien peignée. Un nez de pils impériale. De gros malts mielleux qui s’enrobent d’un alcool fait d’oranges amères et d’herbes poivrées. Toute une claque! Sur les papilles, une chaleureuse bouffée d’alcool qui semble étouffer les épices et des céréales rondes qui semblent anéantir la montée aromatique des levures. En bouche, un corps bien dense, comme une liqueur maltée, avec des bulles heureuses et une texture huileuse à souhait. Une finale assez chaude, amère d’un alcool houblonné et d’épices qui finissent par se signaler. Une petite bombe chaude, sans doute sur le déclin (?), qui s’accorde parfaitement avec la froideur de ce début de novembre et avec le verre de Jägermeister que ma tante vient de me servir.

Golden, mildly hazy body; delicate white bubbles dirty my glass. Smell of sweet malt, tons of Brett, spicy, lemon peel. Actually smells like it will be sour.

Pink peppercorns, floral, funky, some sweetness in the middle. A bit boozy on the finish. Add more fruit and let this sour a bit and I'd drink the shit out of this.
