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!

RG 19. Bottle. Hazy yellow with light head. Almost banana-y, almost bubble gummy, but lighter. Maybe cloves. Slightly rubbery but not in a bad way.

Sampled at the Richmond Gathering 19. Almost clear pale yellow with ring of bright white head. Orange peel, lemon peel, peppery, spicy, sweet, honey, vanilla. Complex, but with the lemon citrus bitterness to finish. Good, not great.

jeremyh70 (778) - Missouri, USA - JAN 13, 2013
A hazy straw color with a lot of sediment. Very little head or lacing. Sour aroma that mingles with the pepper and some citrus and sweetness. Starts somewhat sweet, some funk becoming apparent and also the spicy pepper. Grapefruit and lemon undertones with also just a bit of alcohol that shows up in warmth more than taste, which is impressive for the 10.5 ABV. Big flavors and aromas. Medium/high carbonation and medium mouthfeel. A little lingering aftertaste but not much. Good beer but too big to have to often. Bought at Beertopia. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Pours hazy golden with very thin white head. Aroma is citrus and spice, as is the flavor. Very smooth despite the 10.5%.
