Self-described as an “Imperial Saison," this Belgian-inspired beer showcases the expected saison phenolics, esters, and hops without the encumbrance of a heftier body or burdensome malt character of a higher-gravity beer. The aroma kicks off with prominent black pepper and a background of pear and melon esters and herbal hops. The body adds a moderate bready maltiness among berry and melon-like esters with hints of herbal hops and peppery phenolics. Finishing moderately bitter with a lingering black pepper phenolic, this saison remains refreshing with a dry carbonic bite coupled with a slight alcohol warmth to remind you of the strength.
