- Inspiration: Imperial Saison w/ fruits
- Alcohol by Volume: 6.7% alc./vol.
A fruity beer, L’Impériale Saison underwent a mixed fermentation (saison and brettanomyces yeasts) as well as a 2-month-long maceration process with 85 kg of fruits. It has a vivid orange colour, a cloudy veil and is topped with a rich ivory head which gives off aromas of bubble gum intertwined with notes of raspberry, peach, mango and passion fruit. Its palate, rather dry and light feeling considering the significantly high alcohol content, is an explosion of fruit dominated by notes of raspberry with hints of spice; a dangerous combination that encourages decadence.
There is a time of year when generous Mother Nature bestows upon us her bountiful offerings. Whiles bears gorge themselves in preparation for winter and farmers reap their harvests, the Trou du diable’s scientists are busy as bees. From their secret hideout beneath the waterfalls of Shawinigan, they send their giant robots, to their great delight, to harvest a gigantic amount of fruits. This beer is designed for the forever-young who have always dreamed of controlling Gigantor while eating toast spread with two inches of jam.
