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.

fonefan (34595) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2008
Bottle. Clear medium red amber color with a large, frothy - creamy, good - excellent lacing, fully lasting, light beige head. Aroma is light to moderate malty, caramel, moderate to heavy black pepper. Flavor is moderate sweet and a heavy peppery burn with a long long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. A funny beer but to much black pepper for me. (090408)

12 fl oz bottle. Pours clear and golden amber with dense white head. Light spiced and mild caramel malty aroma. Flavour is somewhat ordinary caramel malty, but the black pepper clear builds up towards the finish. Gets quite strong and slight burning in the finish from the pepper. Not impressed.

Ungstrup (29208) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2005
An amber beer with a small beige head. The aroma is sweet malty, but what a differens the flavor has - the flavor contains lots of ginger, as well as alcohol and pepper, and leads to a dry end. The pepper is just not me.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2008
(Bottle 34,1 cl) Courtesy of mortendb. Pours a slightly hazy, amber golden with a handsome, tall, dense, beige head. Aroma of caramel and spices. Fairly light in body with light notes of caramel, a light fustiness and then very distinct accents of pepper that also leaves an impressive burn. Quite interesting, but I’m not sure if I could finish a full bottle. 120108

joergen (20640) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2008
Bottle. Clear orange coloured with a huge off white ehad. Spicy aroma of fruits, caramel, liquorice and pepper. Flavour of caramel, pepper, fruits and hops. Hoppy and burniing peppery finish.

oh6gdx (20274) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 10, 2010
Bottled. Deep amber colour with small off-white head. Aroma is wood, herbs, some spices, tealeafs as well as mild honey and sweet malts. Flaviur is quite much the same, but has rye bread and mild nuttyness coming in as well.

omhper (19308) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 8, 2009
Bottled at Bishop’s Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm. Hazy abe, mid-sized head. Quite intriuing spicy pepper aroma. Dry, clean and crisp. Burning black pepper overruns everything on it’s way. The crisp bready malt get crushed under the weight of the peppercorns. With a level of spicyness more suited to a steak than a drink it’s completely out of balance.

anders37 (16539) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2008
Bottle. Thanks to Theis for sharing. Pours a slightly havy amber color with a small off-white head. Fruity malty spicy aroma with some peppery hints. Malty spicy pepper flavor. Long malty pepper finish with a burning peooery aftertaste.

Slightly hazy brown beer, little white head. Light palate, neutral. Light malt - English bitter style. Hot pepper carries through everything to the finish and beyond! Hot! Over spiced!

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 7, 2008
Beautiful dark brown color with a creamy head. It has a simple aroma, with light caramel and a hint of pepper. Medium body strength, with a dry caramel flavor, too much carbonation, quite poor. The only interesting (and original) note here is the lightly burning pepper feeling, the right strength, but I would imagine it more on a beer with a different structure and different flavor.
