Smells like a saison, lot of all spice. Very complex beer, has a lot of spice in the taste and something prominent that Im unsure of what it is. This is my first beer of this style.

On tap. Pours a hazy yellow hued body with a small white head. Aromas are malty, bready, biscuity, light spice, white pepper and low esters. Some floral honey like notes. Flavors are mildly spicy, black pepper, nice bready malt profile, relatively clean, lightly floral. Medium carbonation, somewhat dry, with a touch of alcohol perceived sweetness in the finish.

Lukaduke (2222) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Pours a rich golden color with a big frothy two finger foam. Lots of peppercorn, belgian spice and phenols in this one. Taste just like I assumed it would just a bit to spicy of a saison style for me. Nice mouthfeel and execution just a bit heavy on the earthy spice from both the spelt and peppercorns.

Jamesthebrit (268) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Poured into an allagash like chalice glass. A: Looks interesting. Hazy golden dandellion color. Thick white head. S: Smells interesting as well. Musty. Earthy. Tangy. Hint of citrus. lemon. orange. T: Tastes better than I expected. Earthy. Spicy. It really tastes like a saison... probably on account of the peppercorns. Finish is piney. P; Very smooth on the palate. Carbonation is smooth and the beer has a great flavor development. Overall this is a pretty solid beer. very interesting in flavor. Not sure if Id get it again but that just my preference.

Bottle from canals. Good beer for the style, but not my cup of tea. Allagash is top notch though.
