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!

AxlLives (288) - Maryland, USA - DEC 17, 2012
12 oz bottle - pours cloudy yellow-orange, smallish white head, diminishing. Big lemon-peel and grapefruit notes on the nose. Little bit of pepper and bready yeast. Taste is all bread and spice, with a bit of dry fruit at the finish. A bit of heat with the youth. OK, not the best of theirs I’ve had the pleasure trying.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours deep amber/golden with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, spicy yeast, light fruits, a little pepper, and floral hops. The flavor has the elements of a saison but they’re buried under everything else. Thicker texture. An interesting beer, but I feel like they tried to do too much.

jhgrantjr (461) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Poured from a bottle, hazy yellow color with thin white head. Aroma of the citrus variety, earthy. The taste is thicker than typical saisons, slightly bitter or spicey aftertaste. Not my favorite, but I was surprised at the high ABV. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy, golden amber colored body, was nice to look at. There wasn’t a big head, as it rose up to one finger thick at most, and then died down fairly quickly. The smell had a lot of citric character, which is understandable considering the use of grapefruit, lemon, and orange peel. There was also a hint of floral hops. The first taste is where this beer really started to excel for me. There was an explosion of sweet and citric flavors as soon as the beer touched my tongue, and as I swallowed it, there was a lingering spicy-herbal finish with a slight numbing sensation, which I suspect resulted from the pink peppercorns. The body was medium dense, which is pretty typical for a Saison. I wish that the beer was more carbonated, as it would have improved the feel significantly. Although the spices used are unusual, this was a typical sweetish Saison.
