jgb9348 (4993) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 19, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2015 Slightly hazy ruby-tinted copper and bronze coloured body with a thinnish, single centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of yeast, grass, hay, wort, light alcohol and a fruity sweetness - like apples and pears, all with a good pepper note. Medium-bodied; Strong grassy and herbal note throughout with a solid dry character and a herbal finish with a touch of pepper and sugars, all with some alcohol burn on the tail end. Aftertaste shows a rich dry and oaky characteristic with some more deep assertive notes at the end with the yeast coming out the strongest. Overall, a nice saison with a very dry quality and a bit of light sugars to coax out the pepper notes. I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Washington (P Street, Logan Circle), DC on 05-January-2015 for US$8,99 sampled at home in Washington on 19-February-2015.

Nice peppercorn accents, adds a lot to the saison body. Lots of savory notes, compliment the buttery body

KyotoLefty (7175) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 21, 2014
750 bottle, as Peppercorn Saison. Yeasty nose, minerally, biscuits, oranges and stone fruits, pepper. Glowing orange, cloudy, with lace. Very estery flavor, heavy malts, biscuits, wheat, clove. The pepper almost cuts through the big estery malts but cannot. Tasty as such, rather weizen like, not at all what I want in a saison, though, too sweet and heavy.

BMMillsy (1655) - Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Had on draft in DC as Peppercorn Saison. Pours cloudy yellowish orange with a super creamy half finger head. Aroma of fruity funk, pears, maybe some peaches, light peppery aroma but not much there, yeasty. Flavor follows the smell closely with sweet fruits balanced by light spice and a nice funky yeast character, on the sweeter and heavier feeling side for a saison, but I like it. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low scores surprise me on this, as I thought it was pretty good.

Sarlacc83 (1171) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Bottle passed on from Gene via Craig. Thanks! A: Cloudy yellow color with a white head. N: Biscuit, peppercorn, clove, banana, lemon zest. T: Slightly tart, brush with sweetness. M: Light body, medium carbonation, hint of alcohol. O: Nice saison. Reminds me quite a bit of Logsdon’s base version, in point of fact.
