3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy gold pour with a 2 finger, creamy white head. Aroma is full of pepper, earthy spice, some sharp, fruity esters and a bit of cereal. Flavor is black pepper, earth, floral and planty notes and lots of doughy yeast. Medium body with a velvety entry, leading to a slightly chalky, but still creamy finish with a light, but sharp and blanketing carbonation and noticeable black pepper heat that lingers and warms the throat and stomach a bit. Good, but not really much going on besides the pepper. I really wish I would have though ahead and bought a nice juicy ribeye to accompany the rest of this bottle. That seems to be the best use for pepper heavy beers.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy orange with a small white head. The aroma has mushy malt, pepper, stone fruit, spice and mild lightly toasty malt. Only light, if any, saison/farmhouse notes. Very pepper heavy. It has a medium crisp biting body with semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts off with pepper, pepper and more pepper. There is some stone fruit and some smooth Belgian yeast (not saisony though). The finish unsurprisingly has lots of pepper qualities. I did enjoy this, but you have to be a fan of heavy pepper to really enjoy it.

Oct, 2013. JDW. Soft blandish malt with soap notes and some pepper (hah!) Some faint honey. And odd and unattractive beer.
