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!

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.

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.

It’ll get ya drunk. Hazy yellow orange. Aroma is musty and light fruit. Taste is sweet and bitter. Over-rated, but descent.

12 ounce bottle. Thanks Brenton! Pours a somewhat hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of fruit, yeast, and spice. Taste is lemon, yeast, cloves, pepper, and malt. Nice.

suprchunk (2864) - Crestview, Florida, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Hazy golden colored pour. Slim layer of white bubbles. Some lacing. Aroma reminiscent of an infected beer. Some citrus notes. Taste is a sweet citrusy malt. Slight bitterness. Tastes way better than the aroma.

GTAEgeek (1756) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 9, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Hazy orange color, with a thin off-white head. The aroma is orange slices, white bread, strong sugar, overripe bananas, and syrup. The flavor is stickily sweet, with some very light bitterness. Light to medium body, very sticky, and sugary. Overall, this is a big, sticky saison.

Delicious! Rich and flavorful, with copius fruit and spice notes. Just bitter enough. Very small head.

Pailhead (6249) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy orange, moderate peppercorns, light bubblegum, lemon, grapefruit, and alcohol. It pours a hazy, bordering on cloudy, yellowish-orange with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin ring. There’s some minimal thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate citrus with a touch of bubblegum. Alcohol is very noticeable in the finish in flavor and heat. It’s way too much for me in this style of beer. There’s also some light peppercorn, apple, and grapefruit. It’s medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, just way too much alcohol and it’s not working in this "imperial" Saison.

Burnt citrus peels and yeast funk fill the nose. Probably the strongest beer of this type I have had. Hazy orange, pretty obvious that it’s aged a year. Mean sour-puss bitterness, which is the only thing hiding the strength, as there’s very little malt. No, just lots of citrus booze. I also can’t imagine it doing well with long term aging. Not really heavy but filling. Even the clean hitter strikes out sometimes.
