draft at smoke and barrel....the mix of peppers and a "sour" didn’t work well for me. It wasn’t too sour, and the pepper was too strong. Interesting idea, but didn’t get it done.

On tap at Smoke & Barrel. Lightly spicy with a mild pepper finish. Light body with a touch of heat through the finish. Very dry.

Glouglouburp (6075) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2013
In short: An uber-rustic Saison-ish blond ale with a fun peppery twist and mild tartness/acidity. Very good.
How: Tap at brewpub, the day of the beer release.
The look: Partly cloudy blond body topped by a persistent small white head.
In long: Nose has a nice rustic character with a pleasant unusual peppery spiciness, the aroma reminds me of a more rustic version of Brouhaha Saison Voatsiperifery (local popular Saison). Taste also has a strong rustic character although it really didn’t feel all that Brett, more like an assertive Saison yeast presence. Clean crackery malt backbone, bright fruity notes of lemon and peaches, well integrated peppery spiciness. Finish is medium dry and with a mild citric acidity and mild tartness. Listed here as a Sour/Wild but to me this was much more a very rustic semi-wild Saison. Obviously I liked this beer a lot more than everybody else here, I would drink gallons of this fine session ale. I’ve got to say I have no idea what a Hemelse God is, I’m not much of a religious person, to me religion is some kind of elaborate book club where every week people get together to always discuss the same book.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 2, 2013
Dégusté en fût sur place. De couleur dorée-ambrée et très légèrement voilée. Nez fruité (cerises sûres, notes de citron, traces de pommes vertes), moyen de blé sûr, léger de levures sauvages et de céréales sucrées, léger de houblon herbeux et d’épices (poivre). Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement huileuse et aux faibles notes crémeuses. Goût moyennement sûr de fruits (cerises sûres, notes de citron et de pommes vertes) avec un léger goût de levures sauvages et d’épices (poivre doux) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de blé sûr avec des notes de céréales et de pain puis en finale une très légère amertume de houblon herbeux vient se rajouter. Post-goût moyen et asséchant, composé d’un goût légèrement aigre de fruits (cerises sûres) avec des notes de blé et de houblon herbeux. (29 décembre 2012)

Reimer96 (1273) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 27, 2012
Pours a clear golden amber with a huge white creamy head that leaves tons of sticky lace. Aroma is sour lemon/lime with a little bit of pepper and sweet malt. Taste is sour lime & wheat with a mild spicy/pepper finish. Blends together really well.

Ferris (4493) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 27, 2012
Draft - Sour and lime on the nose. Clear amber with thick rich head. Surprisingly mellow, pepper adds a bit of kick but not much. Pretty bland but easy drinking.

bigaddie (75) - - NOV 27, 2012
Pours a deep golden and clear color with a thick, 1 in head. Strong odors of sourness with the obvious brett. smell. Cherries and plums in the nose. Oh! sour flavor with good depth. Smells are a lot sweeter than taste. Mild and very drinkable beer. Wheatish taste. Sounded a lot better. Couldn't find any taste of Szechuan chillies. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy honey gold hue, with a small white head, light citrus, lime, lemon peel juicy, fanit funky bretty sour nose, with a faint green apple tartness note, with a lemon pepper spicy herbal, wet wheat malt sour accent in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a mild zesty lemony, juicy acidic, light yeasty funky bretty, sour apple fruity character, with a kind of a spritzy 7up after taste flavour, leading towards a yeasty funkiness sour lemon rind, lingering light acidic finish.
