4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Have a towel nearby, because this one is a fizzer. Pours a hazy, barely translucent honey golden with a thick and rather persistent eggshell head. Malty aroma has a strong fruity overtone that delivers notes of banana, pear and - mango? Papaya? Something tropical. Flavor has the same zingy fruit notes, plus the jazzy pepper tone that the recipe promises. The pepper is strong enough to notice, but does not overwhelm or dominate the palate. A little pepper peppereth the whole batch. Texture is fairly firm, smooth yet lively and fizzy. Get peppy with pepper.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at PIB, pours a cloudy blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out some peppery funk upfront and Belgian yeast further back. Flavour reveals a very soft palate, with notes of Belgian yeast, clove, and banana. Not the most refined saison-ish beer by a long shot, but quite decent nonetheless. Good beer.

Bottle. Pretty tasty. Pours a hazy gold with a touch of head. Rich aroma of Belgian yeast, nutty malt, peach, pepper. Taste follows suit. Interestingly, it starts dry and finishes sweet. A bit thin and syrupy but overall quite nice.

2.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Subtle funk aroma, slight pepper undertones. Slightly low on carbonation makes for a syrupy mouth feel. That in turn leads to a overly sweet beer
