This imperial saison’s dosed with a hefty amount of sage, bringing unexpectedly bold herbal notes to the mix. Both sage and white pepper dominate the aroma; a touch of hay adds depth to the bouquet. Sage coolly emerges on the tongue and permeates the solid saison base: White pepper, subtle hay, clove and
crackerlike malts meld easily with the specialty ingredient while a bite of wheat keeps the swallow lively. With its dry finish and lingering sage, this beer is exceptionally rustic.
