COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Routes des épices (French for "Spice Route") is a rye beer brewed with both black and green peppercorns. Initially, the beer reveals flavours of fresh grain and malt, which give it notes of chocolate, caramel, and fruit. The pepper flavour and aroma is fully revealed in the finish, which leaves a pleasant, spicy, tingling sensation on the tongue.

This had promise but fell somewhat short of greatness. Nice spicy aroma that had a holiday zest. Nice light caramel color. Palate was thin and the least attractive aspect. Carbonation was low to average. Flavors were spicy, peppery, and some hops balance but more subtle than the aroma promised. Good but there are many others in this style that follow through.

pours reddish brown with fluffy off white head. aroma is a rich caramel malty sweetness with a little bit of spice and dried apricot. Taste is caramel, maybe a little bit roasty, with the peppercorns and fruit rounding out the back end. nice mouthfeel with the pepper adding a little bite. Very tasty, and quite unique flavor

Aromas of caramel, rye, malt, some fruitiness. Taste of caramel, tropical fruits, and then pepper. It?s quite great, in fact it?s tremendously balanced with the pepper finish, it?s a great beer.

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2014
Dégustée à la brasserie à St-Jérôme le 25 juillet 2009. Bière couleur thé. Col mince et éphémère. Très peu effervescente. Odeur un peu sucrée. Douce, un peu sucrée, un peu amère. Goût âcre en amorce, épicé en finale (gingembre?), de poivre. Bonne en son genre. Un peu trop épicée (poivrée) en finale, ce qui empêche de savourer pleinement la bière comme telle.

341ml bottle from Saveur-Biere

Bottled 10/2013 - Pours dark amber brown with a small white head. Aroma of spices, rye, syrup, malts and dark caramel. Taste is smooth, malty and sweetish with notes of rye, spices, syrup and toffee. Finish is smooth and sweet with some maltiness, rye and spices. Okay quite balanced rye ale as the spices are quite subtle.

Slightly roasty spiced peppery aroma that is somewhat faint. Transparent amber color with a tan/yellow head. Start is roasty with hot pepper touches. Finishes with some spiciness, but not too spicy . Finishes roasty and smooth. Interesting and well-balanced.

Draft pour. A lot of chile and pepper on the aroma. Very smooth beer with a lot of vegetable and spice. Points for being very unique. Good stuff

freretoc (648) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 2, 2014
Bu en bouteille de 33cl, une couleur ambrée mais aucune mousse, une bière agréable et étonnante une belle attaque sur le malt très agréable qui dure peu puis ensuite une petite attaque poivrée qui pique un peu la langue sympathique.
