3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle... Hazy amber ale with a small, creamy, white head. Excellent retention. The nose presents fuzzy fruits and peppery, floral, earthy notes. Light-bodied with jazzy carbonation. Nice, fruity, peppery-warm flavor. Plenty of pepper spiciness and warmth in the finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour from a bottle thanks to a generous trade extra. Golden orange color in the glass. Aromas are of pepper and lemon citrus. Flavors are initially of tangerine and a touch of sweet malt. The peppercorns make their presence known mid palate and on the finish. The slight heat lingers nicely and balances well. Medium in body. Very solid and tasty beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by brew3crew. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a medium sized, but quickly diminishing white head. The aroma certainly showcases the peppercorns; black pepper, some floral notes, spicy rye and a splash of fruit. The flavor has all of the nose with some earthy notes and some grass. Interesting brew.

Bread, yeast, and a pleasant white pepper aroma. Flavor is dominated by pepper, as is the finish. Gimmicky, but OK.

Great stuff here. Heavy peppercorns and spicyness accent the yeast well. Banana and berry esthers with coriander and grass. Very drinkable and highly enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle that I purchased at the brewpub. Pours a clear gold with a thin-moderate white head that faded to a film after the second sip and left very little lace. I get mostly pilsner malt in the aroma with some breadiness to it along with some noticeable pepper and some floral notes. The flavor is more spicy with malt, some fruity Belgian yeast, rye, and then the peppercorns kick in and release some moderate heat in the back of the throat that lingers for about thirty seconds, slowly subsiding. Medium bodied and quite enjoyable!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle picked up at the brewpub. Batch 1, bottled February 2012. Pours a lightly hazed, darker golden colored body with a finger-width, frothy and fizzy, off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a light lacing. Aroma is bigger peppercorns with an herbal, earthy, and slightly hot note. Some florals, a light pale malt backing, some Belgian yeast with a light coriander, and a touch of rye spice. Flavor is lightly sweetened, grainy pale malts up front with some Belgian yeast before the peppercorns come in. Herbal and earthy with a light spicing. Florals and a light coriander before this finishes dry with a nice mix of herbal, earthy, and slightly hot peppercorns as well as a lightly sweetened pale malt. Light bitterness before leaving a fairly lengthy aftertaste with the heat coming off the peppercorns a bit more. Light body and a crisp, moderate carbonation. Overall, a solid beer. Lots of peppercorn with an interesting mix of earth, herbs, and a light heat. Some florals, Belgian yeast, and spice along with a grainy pale malt backing keep the peppercorns in check. Enjoyable.
