BMan1113VR (7884) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle. Pours with a hazy golden hued body with a scant white head that fades somewhat quickly. Aromas are somewhat doughy and biscuity, floral, pepper, iced tea, light tropical fruit. Flavors show a mild bitterness, pepper, iced tea, doughy, mildly oxidized. Medium body with low carbonation.

Cybercat (3679) - Georgia, USA - AUG 12, 2014
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.

yiannnos (957) - , CYPRUS - AUG 11, 2014
On tap. Golden-orange colour. Pepper, some belgian yeast funk and fruitiness, nice.

Suttree (5317) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Very murky brown, tan head. Smells nicely fruity and yeasty. Taste fruity, like possible blueberry, then some peppery flavors. Some grassy notes in the finish, as well.

mcberko (7814) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 8, 2014
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.

arminjewell (7036) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, very hazy golden-orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of white fruit, pepper, some bready notes into a bit of funk, yeast, hints of lemon, orange peel. Taste is a mix of bread, grass, orange, pear, white grape into some lemon, funky oak, finishing fairly bitter, dry. Nice.

thornecb (4640) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Pours gold into a snifter. Bright white head with good retention recedes leaving scant trailing sheets. Caramel, yeast, pepper and citrus aromas. Sweet caramel and marshmallow upfront turning to pepper and bitter earth in the lasting finish.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
Ontape (423) - Valley Village, California, USA - AUG 3, 2014
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
sirwisa (25) - California, USA - AUG 1, 2014
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

beertholomeus (1007) - California, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Pours a golden yellow color with a white head. Yeast, fruit, spice and funk aroma. Fruit, spice, yeast, sugar and funk flavors. Medium body and carbonation with a yeast and funk finish.
