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!

Very nice saison. Pours a gorgeous golden color with a mild white head. Lovely spicy aroma. Spicy peppery flavor, nice malt flavor as well. Moderate spicy bitter finish. Plenty of alcohol warmth.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - OCT 1, 2012
THOUGHTS: Way too strong for the style, but still fairly true to the flavor and aromas of the style. It might age nicely. The grapefruit became quite intense once the yeast was added to the glass. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a medium to dark, somewhat brownish, orange that almost glowed and had beautiful carbonation bubbles that increase in size as they rise. It also had a small, ever so slightly off-white head that mostly lasted and left excellent lacing. The aroma had heavy light bread, pale malt and candy sugar; heavy spicy and earthy yeast; slightly funky yeast; light pepper; and citrus rind that increased as it warmed. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and lightly bitter; while the finish was heavily sweet, moderately bitter and acidic, and ever so slightly sour with a fairly long duration. There was pale malts, citrus, light bread, pepper, lots of spicy yeast, earthy yeast, slightly funky yeast, candy sugar, alcohol and more citrus. The medium to full body was a bit oily and syrupy with slightly fizzy carbonation and a moderately alcoholic finish.

ROGUE (2145) - Newark, Delaware, USA - SEP 30, 2012
12oz bottle. Poured a light orange color with a thin white head that disappeared quickly. Aroma has a strong presence of lemon zest and orange peel with a touch of bitter grapefruit citrus, along with corriander and grain. The taste shows the yeast spice a more prominently throughout. The citrus flavors are there with the lemon and orange zest. The finish is bitter with some grapefruit mixing in with yeast spices. Alcohol is very present throughout. Medium body and moderate to high carbonation.

obguthr (4169) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Whole orange and lemon nose, funk and marshmallow hints. Cloudy amber, thin head, full of particulates. Apricot and triple sec flavor, boozy. Clover honey is detectable when warm. Dried apricot and grapefruit peel on the back end. Drinks more like a triple than a saison.

odinstyr (567) - Hamilton, New Jersey, USA - SEP 25, 2012
Pours a hazy gold with a small white head. Smells of dough, citrus, earthy. Taste is mildy sweet, sour, bitter and spicy. Citrus, mild hops, pepper spiciness. Moderately yeasty with mild malt and hops.

If you are looking for something bright, zesty, potent, bursting with fun fruity flavor, but with just the right balance of bitterness, that dances with mysterious pleasures, and also knocks you on your can, you can start right here. I LOVE this beer.

Boutip (4920) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 21, 2012
Bottle: Poured a cloudy hay color ale with a large foamy head with minimal retention and not much lacing. Aroma consists of coriander and orange/lemon peel with quite a bit of residual sugar. Taste is also dominated by a mix of spices including coriander with some orange and lemon peel which are balanced against a huge malt backbone with quite a bit of residual sugar. Body is quite full with limited filtration and medium carbonation with no apparent alcohol. This beer is so big that it almost falls into the BSA category. I would probably have liked it better if it had traded some alcohol and sugar for additional attenuation which in turn would have provided more rooms for the spices to come out.

j12601 (7000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - SEP 14, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Bright lemon and citrus on the nose, musk, esters, wheat. Musky, warm wheat, light alcohol peeking through over wheat and musk. Long musk, phenols, light warming alcohol into the finish.

Braudog (5932) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 11, 2012
Bottle. Orange-tinged golden colored, heavily sedimented, with a nice rocky top. This drinks with an amazing "zing" ... like a blood orange up front, but with a brilliant blend of peppery herbs behind it. Certainly doesn’t display its 10% strength, either. Nice. (#4777, 9/11/2012)
