While Saisons are generally known for their light body and subtle spice, Saison Imperiale (ABV 8.5%) from the De Proef Brouwerij is a bolder, "mega" interpretation of the style.

This is a deep amber colored beer with active carbonation forming a large tan head. The beer is fermented with two yeasts - the traditional ale yeast Saccharomyces along with a light touch of the Lambic-like Brettanomyces yeast, yielding the earthiness sometimes referred to as "farmhouse character." On the palate the yeasts and hops combine for fruity and spicy notes, overlaying a semi-sweet caramel depth and richness from the malt. A truly unique Saison experience.


In 1996, Dirk Naudts, a highly regarded brewing engineer and professor, with his wife Saskia Waerniers, created De Proef Brouwerij (the Proof Brewery) in the village of Lochristi, Belgium. The brewery blends modern equipment and technologies with traditional brewing methods, operating predominantly as a rental brewery to develop and produce beers for third parties who do not have their own facilities, or who want to produce experimental small batch beers. Their focus lies exclusively on recipe/product development (never copying existing beers) and beer production.
