COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Continuing our theme of Saisons brewed with peppercorns, Poivre du Sichuan is brewed with Szechuan peppercorns, coriander, pink peppercorns, ginger and ornage peal. Fermented using a French Saison yeast, the result is a blend of citrus and floral notes with a unique kick from the Szechuan peppercorns. We hope you’ll enjoy this unique take on a traditional beer. Batch 24 - Released 8/2/12

650ml bottle [batch 77]. Hazy amber colour with very huge, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Floral hoppy and minimally spicy aroma, a touch of wild yeast, some citrus. Taste is floral hopy, spicy, orange zest, a peppery touch. Very nice.

22 ounce bottle. Pours a dusty, murky orange-yellow with a frothy white layer of foam. Smells earthy, sweet, peppery, spicy. It tasted thoroughly unfiltered and yeasty. The peppercorns worked nicely with the traditional saison aspects. Palate was medium bodied and fizzy. This is a good mealtime beverage.

22 ounce bomber poured a nice orangish copper color with aromas of peppercorns, yeast, light ginger, and some citrus. Flavors follow suit with a light spicy yeast in the back end.

Tmoney99 (10800) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate citrus, floral, ginger, red peppercorn and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy spice citrus flavor with a medium to heavy spice sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectation where exceeded.

Bomber to snifter (thanks alexsdad06). Looks good; a semi-opaque burnt-orange with sticky off-white lacing. Smells of oranges, peppercorn, other spices, and Belgian yeast. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A solid example of the style.

800th review! Bottle purchased at West Lakeview awhile back while in Chicago. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a ton of foamy head. Has a floral scent and a very distinct flowery-yet-spiced taste. Very light on the tongue and crisp. The pepper comes through more in the finish. Very good beer, I loved it.

Bottle. Pours semi cloudy gold with big white fluffy head. Nose/taste of peppercorn, yeast, citrus, florals, lemon and orange zest, coriander and ginger root. Finishes dry peppercorn/ginger root and spicy hops. Medium body.

Batch 40:Pours a clean gold with no head, nose is of grass and spice. I must have gotten a bad bottle as there was no carbonation at all, other than that it was a great beer. I liked how the spices were scaled back on this beer a bit. It was more balanced than previous similar incarnations. Add carbonation to this bottle and it would have been a grand slam.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Batch 24 bomber. A big nose with complex spices that range from black pepper to ginger. A medium bodied beer that drives notes of ginger, white pepper, and the big Sichuan pepper that picks up mid palate through the long finish. Great beer!
