3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma for this beer is truly a unique one. The predominant notes are the pink peppercorns, which present as an aroma reminiscent of a well made dinner. It pours a hazy straw yellow with a full white head. The hops come through in the flavor, with the spicy notes blending well with the pink peppercorns. Light and easy drinking on the palate. The biggest complaint I have is the price, at $11 a bottle, this can get a bit pricey.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer looks like a Belgian Wit with a hazy golden color and a big foam head. The similarities stop there. Pepper aroma and hop combination is an odd pairing. Citrus, pine, grape, and pepper create a phenolic taste that has hints of greatness but falls flat.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at The Ginger Man, NYC. It’s a hazy one, dark orange-golden in color and with a creamy, off-white head of fingerthick size. The aroma has a faint peppery touch, with oranges, some malts and a generic fruityness. There’s a nice bitterness in the flavor, more pepper than in the aroma and a light malty back. Pink grapefruits too. Full body, smooth and nicely carbonated, with a little pepper burn in the mouth. Long finish. A nice idea, but it should have more attitude. 150624

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light hop nose with a slight whiff of cardboard. Cloudy orange from the sediment in the bottle. Cookie malt gives way to a broad bitter and a clear pepper end. Unbalanced overall in my opinion but extra points for being interesting.
