3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Mile High Denver. Pours a bit hazy golden orange appearance with a fluffy khaki head. Heavy peppercorn, sweet orange citrusy, a touch yeasty aroma. Spritzy/champagne, white wine, banana, orange citrusy, heavy black pepper flavor. Not horrible but Jesus, the peppercorn is way too much for my liking.

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.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Oct, 2013. JDW. Soft blandish malt with soap notes and some pepper (hah!) Some faint honey. And odd and unattractive beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein leicht trübes dunkel goldgelbes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch nach Pfefferkörner, dieser Geruch sticht sehr hervor und lässt somit andere Aromen kaum durch. Geschmack malzig fruchtig, zunächst nur leichter Geschmack nach Pfeffer, im Abgang hält sich dieser Geschmack dann ziemlich lange.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Peppercorn to the fore; a little lemony; some cheesecloth- simple overall but pleasant. Appearance: Translucent honey gold with a billowy off-white head that dissipates into a whipped, foamy cap. Flavor: Peppercorn accompanied by a little honey sweetness underneath; honey gives way to a little lemon/light floral notes toward the finish. Palate: Medium body, thick texture, lively carbonation, lingering peppery finish. Overall: Actually quite enjoyed this; would be lovely with (not fried) fish, and I’d wager a nice, herbal pot roast with some goat cheese.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Hoppy Loft. Golden colour, clear, small white head. Aroma is lightly peppery, bit fruity, nice light graininess. Taste is good, pretty subtle black pepper, but it does linger and becomes more prominent as the rest fades. There’s other stuff there but I am struggling to pick it. Definite belgian feel, possibly with the body. Grainy bread. Good stuff. Maybe a bomber was too much but it makes me feel like I have eaten, so could be a good thing.
