Okay. The bird is the word.
Once a year we all sit with friends and family and gussy up the table a bit more than usual. The time of Holiday feasting is upon us. In the middle west that means meals chock full of flavor, carbs
Imperial Saison Ale
Zaison takes its inspiration from the famous Saison style of beer madein the southern region of Belgium. Traditionally this beer is made in the coolness of the winter months to be enjoyed in the Spring and Summer. Our special yeast strain gives this beer a little funkiness and is accented with tellicherry black peppercorns and orange peel. At 9% abv this is probably one of the strongest summer beers you will encounter. The alcohol contributes to the flavor so who are we to try to reduce it? This is the strength the beer wanted to be, so we left it that way.
The yeast we use for this beer naturally gives it some pepperiness. We accented it a bit more with some spice additions to find that perfect balance.
This beer was designed with food in mind. The pepperiness makes it go great with grilled meats & bbq. However the lightness of the beer and the hints of orange make it delicate enough to go with lighter farre too.
Barbeque, curried mussels, hard salumi, farm cheeses or aged gouda.
