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.

33 cl bottle @ home. Pours dark amber with some sediment and an off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are pepper, spices, and malt - with a peppery finish.

341 ml Bottle. clear ruby/amber color, average head. smells rye and peppercorn! Spices is the name of the game! tasty but not as much as I would expect from the smell. the after taste tickles your throat a little(very peppery) very complete, pepper and rye dominate but you can also detect amber malts and spicey hops. kinda cool but a bit shy

DSG (5827) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 17, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks kerenmk. Hazy deep amber. Spicy aroma, very peppery, with some malt, caramel and rye spiciness. Sweet flavor with malt, caramel, some rye and lots of peppercorn spiciness. Medium-bodied. Overly spicy, hard to drink.

Wowie! I was not expecting this to be so spicey! It’s got some kick to it to be sure. A beautiful clear and crisp ruddy umber with a great ivory laceroo. Spice is the name of the game, black pepper and rye mostly with hints of cardamom, ginger and cinnamon. A bit of caramel sweetness comes through before a big and lingering barrage of spice pummels. The mouthfeel is very nice and the somewhat slick but still zippy carbonation keeps the zest clinging long after a gulp has been had. A fine treat but to be reserved for special occasions. Best Spiced Beer yet for me.

OOKPIKABLE (86) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2014
Pours brown. Aroma of rye and malt, maybe some pepper. Tastes strongly ofppepper with some rye in there. Strong pepper aftertaste: too strong for mylliking.

On tap at DDC. A clear deep brown with a filmy beige head. Soft cocoa and caramel aroma. The taste is sharp, almost hot peppery, bitter dark malts, ok.

Bottle. There’s so much pepper in this! It’s nice but it can be a bit overwhelming at times. Goes good with a block of Mersey Valley Sharp & Crumbly cheese though!

Bozo_skeleton (502) - Grenoble, FRANCE - AUG 14, 2014
Couleur orangée tirant sur le brun, faible carvo, tres fin collet. Aromes complexes et mélange déroutant mais oh combien envoûtant. On y retrouve le poivre bien sur, mais aussi le caramel, le pain. Le poivre titille les papilles dès son entree en bouche et reste bien présent longtemps apres, le seul bemol est que cela ecrase un peu les autres falveurs. Le corps est plutot rond. Pour les amateurs de poivres !

Pours a dark reddish brown with a nice frothy off-white head with amazing retention and lacing. Aroma of fresh rye bread, pepper, raisins, and caramel, with a flavor to match.

mjakopa (217) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - JUL 31, 2014
Pours a darker orange colour with a strong creamy head that stays until the end. Aroma is strong pepper, with a lighter body. There is more pepper at the tail end of the body with a slightly bitter finish and more pepper at the end. It does leave a slight spicy lingering aftertaste. A great beer for fans of spicy and pepper!
