COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally designed to be a hoppier version of our flagship Saison, the accidental (but fortuitous) addition of two extra bags of Munich malt balanced the hop bitterness leaving us this very unique Imperial Saison. Tropical fruit flavors coming from the unique New Zealand hop variety, Rakau. Notes of passion fruit, mango, peach, pepper and ginger.

thegreenrooster (4749) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 4, 2018
Pour is a hazy orange with a large white head. Aroma is funky yeast ester, banana and clove. Flavor is a super spice and pepper. A little too much for my liking. Finish is a bit hot with a decent yeast ester. This was a little too amped up for me to give this a better score. A bit too hot and peppery.

Bottle. It poured a hazy orange color with a white head. The aroma was of some funk, spices and a touch of hops. The taste was similar to the aroma with more funk, spices, hops and medium carbonation with a dry aftertaste. Not bad.

Clareeses (223) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 20, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2018 On draft at craft beer cellar Clayton Aroma 7 /10: bready yeasty aroma Appearance 4 /5: clear golden amber with white frothy head Palate 4 /5: full and robust mouthfeel with bubbly champagne like fizzy carbonation Taste 8/10: classic Saison flavors, very heavy on the yeast, with bitter hops and faint pineapple esters Overall 17/20: a solid Saison but I'm not as excited about it as I thought I would for some reason. The yeast is almost a little too strong up front, overpowering the more delicate fruit esters. It does bloom as it sits at room temp over time, though Final: 4.0

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2018 11.2floz bottle, BOD: 12.05.2017, $2 single, tulip glass. Appears a hazy dark gold with less than a finger or white head. Papaya, cantaloupe, and banana aromas are especially noticed, because they are atypical in such a beer. Texture is full-bodied in its heft, and carbonation is moderate. Taste is an exercise in the three main components of beer besides water: yeast lends certain phenols that lightly touch on candy banana and mild melon fruits; hops provide some citrus zest and light bitterness, malts underlie everything with cereal grain and light-medium sweetness I consumeth easily.

Gerbeer (4354) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 16, 2017
330 ml bottle. Pours a dull cloudy amber with moderate head. Aromas of brett, fuzzy peach and candied citrus. Flavors of dried tropical fruit, earthy Belgian yeast and esters, and cottony peach skin with a dose of wet malts. OK
