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!

spicy,yeasty,citrusy aroma true to the saison style..so is the cloudy yellow body and the creamy white head..the taste is citrus,spice,and a bit of alcohol to go with the background maltiness,lemon and grapefruit flavors predominate..somehow is light on the palate and very easily drinkable and refreshing especially considering the abv..overall a terrific strong summer beer

jjuf1853 (1227) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - MAY 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly clouded golden yellow color with a minimal head. Good bit of floating sediment dispersed throughout. Aroma is spiced and sweet. Flavor is sweet and peppery up front with orange and grapefruit zest and slight bitterness on the tail end. Some warming from the high alcohol, but overall fairly well hidden.

Beerathon (1073) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2014
A lot going on with this beer. Super cloudy yellow/gold pour with next to no head. Spice of pepper, slight funk of saison yeast, orange zesty in nose and flavor. Unique alcohol warmth for a saison, but fun. Nice twist on the style.

onceblind (3933) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Bought at the store, not sure how old, over a year for sure. Hazy tangerine golden, fast dissipating white head. Nose is pretty citrusy, with some tangerine and orange peel, pink rose pedals, and gentle barn-blonde saison maltiness. The flavor is pretty tangerine-ish and citrusy and leafy, some light pepper tones, a bit of grapefruit rind, zesty citrus tones, strong wheaty booze esters. It basically tastes the way it’s advertised, an imperial saison with a light bit of peppercorn and a moderate flavor of citrus zest.

thornecb (4291) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Pours deep gold into a tulip. Bright white soapy head recedes to mottle surface. Sweet caramel, summer fruit and citrus aromas. Well balanced and still a little hot with toffee, peaches and spicy yeast upfront turning to bitter earth in the warm, lasting finish.

snoworsummer (1858) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 16, 2013
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.
