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.

This beer was everything I hoped it would be. The rye used to brew the beer gave it a great palate and character that supported the aggressive, but taseful (and tasty!) addition of peppercorns. This is the kind of beer i could drink almost any time. It has enough flavor to sip by itself, but is light enough to enjoy with many foods, and especially cheeses. Attractive amber color with decent head. Nice transition of flavors from sweet to aromatic to spicy....just like the deScription. I would have liked to see a more pronounced bouqet of pepper in the aroma, but otherwise a perfect peppery rye beer. If only these dieu du ciel beers weren’t so darn expensive.

(Perdi a avaliação mais completa) Picante, herbal, levemente defumada. Dulçor e amargor bem equilibrados. Aftertaste apimentado, picante, adocicado. Ficou devendo no corpo e consistência da espuma, mas é muito boa.

Onestà. Ambrato carico,limpida,schiuma bianca. Aroma di malto,caramello, cioccolato e soprattutto peperoni verdi. In bocca è la stessa, con un bell’intermezzo di cioccolato e il finale con il seme di peperone in evidenza. Ritornano nel retrogusto invece la nota di peperoni piccante. Buonissima scorrevole e carbonata mediamente,leggera ma non disconnessa
