GABF. Hazy yellow pour. Odd. Lots of black pepper, some christmas tree and hops. Nothing blends too well in this. Weird brew.

"man...another unique brew at this place. i thought the peppercorns would be too much in the flavor after smelling the beer, even though i thought the aroma was pretty cool. while they were not subtle, they weren’t at all overpowering either. you could still taste a well balanced ale underneath. maybe not one i’d have all the time, but pretty cool."

Pour on tap, hazy yellow pour with white head, aroma brought pepper, white fruit, grainy notes with some pear, slight white grape, hints of biscuit, bread, slight spicy tones as well. Taste is a mix of white fruit, biscuit, bread, mostly pear and peach, slight white grape into a grassy, spicy, and peppery finish.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Deep amber pour. The nose is lightly spicy with a bit of fresh malt and a kiss of black pepper as well. Fairly lean with a nice crackery maltiness and a touch of flinty hoppiness. A lightly wild nose with a fairly floral component as well. There is an almost bretty component underneath the spiciness. Hops are here and show a kiss of citrus and a bit of herbal character. Nice and fresh and lightly floral. Not really a saison, but it’s a nice spiced Belgian ale.

Draft at the pike street. Pours a cloudy burnished medium amber with a loose white head that doesnt really stick around. Little bit of stringy lace. Hugely phenolic peppery nose, almost a little varnishy. Hesitate to rate...this seems a little farther down the yeasty aromatics path than they might have intended to travel. Big white pepper and pink peppercorn nose. Creamy mexium body with lively carb. Some pink grapefruit, caramel, and lots of peppery phenols on the mid palate. Bring this a little bit back toward balanced and its something special. Right now it comes across as a brawny imperialized treatment of the style.

draft at Blue monk, golden pour with pinkish/red hues. saisony sweetness, floral fruity notes & then a pretty big pepper hit. Pepper sits in the throat for a bit, but i liked this. Pepper wasn’t a horrible addition but unique. Liked it
