Drake (8550) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 4, 2013
330 mL bottle from Common Market Charlotte. Best by 1.2014. Gusher. Pours a very hazy orange color with some floating particles. Large white head, decent head retention. Aroma of bready malts, sugared fruits, caramel, spice, floral notes, earth. The taste is pale malts, spice, pepper, stone fruits, herbal finish. Fairly dry, medium bodied, lingering spice. Nice.

GT2 (8435) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 3, 2013
330mL from El Cerrito. Full haze, murky glowing dark peach pour. Healthy white foam with beautiful thick, webby lacing. Nose is heavier peaches and cream, rich vanilla ice cream. Taste is not thick or yeasty as looks. Brighter, clean body with prickly carbonation. No peppercorn really, hints of vinegar. Not sure what myrrh tastes like. Dry mouthfeel with leafy spices. Quite a lot of grassy hop and oatmeal/pilsner malt balance.

Kosmokrator (485) - ITALY - JUN 19, 2013
Nebuloso color arancio chiaro con un massiccio cappello di soffice e persistente schiuma bianca. Al naso è pungente, speziata, agrumata e floreale; buon bilancio tra dolce e amaro con note di arancia, luppolo, cereali e un retrogusto asciutto quasi "pepato". Corpo medio-lieve, effervescenza gentile, buona complessità; una saison dissetante e inusuale, merita attenzione!

JorisPPattyn (7910) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 17, 2013
Medium, yellowish head, quite even, over faintly veiled orange beer. Hops in the nose, but also something fish-y. Bit of lunaria, (non-sweet) stonafruit. Spicy, rootspices, restrained bitterness with both hoppy and spicy components. Aromatic flavour, nowhere exaggerated, finishing peppery, intriguing. Bit soapy, lavender. The myrrh tincture in my cabinet is pretty different, however. Spritzy carbonation, somewhat burning feel. Medium bodied at best. Interesting, different, not forced. Now what has the Tower of Babel to do with this beer? Mind you, my Hebrew is a tad rusty...

Really nice unique and spicy saison that is dry refreshing and crisp with lots of spicy peppery undertones. Enjoyable beer but at this price I probably wont buy again.

thornecb (4400) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Pours gold into a snifter. White head with good retention recedes to hug rim. Sweet herb aromas. Dry with caramel and hay upfront turning to a mild peppercorn finish.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Slightly fruity nose with pepper and hay, very herbal. taste is fairly dry, light honey and pear, fresh herbs and flowers. Fishes with a menthol-like szechuan peppercorn note. The peppercorn is obvious, without being obnoxious. Well done.
