GABF2009 - one of the better saisons of the evening - a lovely beer with tons of aromatic spices and a zesty, peppery finish - light, crisp, effervescent, just like I like my saisons - dry, crackery maltiness - soft herbal notes that work really well with those dry malts - just the right amount of peppery heat in the finish to make things interesting - very nice.

"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.

Golden in color hazy with a thin white head. Nice Saison flavors earthy with light Belgian yeast flavors and aroma. Lots of pepper flavors in this brew.

On tap at the abbey. Pours pink with no head. Aroma is musty and sweet. Flavor is black pepper with no heat, and a bubble gum finish, strangely tasty.

Draft at Eulogy. Hazy amber with a large foamy white head. Quite a peppery Saison as billed but otherwise mild and smooth. Floral mix of different peppercorns. Rubbed sage. Pine needles. Wildflower honey. Spicy lemon curd. Fairly creamy throughout but a lingering pepper bite.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A cloudy amber with a medium sized whitish head. The florals are more pronounced on the nose, and the body is medium-full at the front and then becomes more subtle. The finish is a bit abrupt but it clean with a lingering carmel fruity.

Good god that nose is fresh, amazing peppercorn aroma. The mouth is mixtures of sweet pear spicy pepper and a long dry finish. The best food beer I can think of. I bought a growler of this man, and damn that was a good choice.

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
