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.

A nice tasty interesting beer. Noted slight tingle on the tongue from the peppercorns but would have liked a bit more. Solid beer just not giving enough of that spice for me.

341ml bottle. Pours a clear, deep reddish amber, with a beige head. Malty, spicy, peppery aroma, caramel, hops, bell peppers (?). Dry, medium body and bitterness, balanced CO2. Malty, spicy taste, pepper, caramel, hints of butterscotch, faintly hoppy. The peppercorns linger in the aftertaste, quite nice. (2016-02-06)

A murky brown body with a modest head. Nose is dominated by black pepper laced with some coffee and roasted cocoa beans. Taste has nice nice roasty and sweet flavours but the aftertaste is dominated by a rather strong peppery burn.lively carbonation and quite palate. The nose and taste upfront are fairky standard and even a bit bland but the pepper really comes on the finish and gives a hefty punch.

340 ml bottle. Garnet color with a small creamy beige head. Toasted grain aroma has chocolate and rye notes. Slightly spicy toasted malt flavor. More chocolate and dark fruit. The peppercorns come late and add a rich spiciness. It made me sneeze. More complex as it warms. Tasty and unique.
