Koppenberg Imperial Saison was brewed in collaboration with our good friend Craig Walker. It is a Belgian-style Saison that is clean, complex and ripe with character from blood oranges, orange zest and rosemary.
The Koppenberg is a famous climb (hill) in the Flemish Ardennes of Belgium. While only 600 meters long and 77m (253ft) tall, it is an extremely rough cobbled road with an incline of up to 22% in places. It is so steep, in fact, that many times riders near the back of the pack will slow so much that they lose their balance and fall over. It is part of the course of the famous Spring Classic Tour of Flanders (aka Ronde van Vlaanderen ).
APPEARANCE: Slightly hazy deep golden orange color with a white head
COLOR: Deep golden orange
FOOD PAIRINGS: Koppenberg Imperial Saison is perfectly suited to any type of spicy foods – including Indian, Mexican, Thai or Cajun. It also pairs great with poultry, fish, pork and creamy cheeses.
