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

Pours very hazy gold with tons of white head. Took forever to pour. Aroma is grassy and citrus hops with saison yeast. Nice yeast profile with lots of interesting spice to it. Balanced well with the nice floral citrus hop profile. Really good.

Lightly hazy gold beer with a small white head. Palate is light, airy and dry. Fine carbonation. Dry thin malt. Nice black pepper, aromatic and flavoursome without too much heat. Light citric hops provide contrast. Finishes light and dry. Could be a very nice beer with a bit more body.

bu11zeye (11760) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 3, 2013

brystmar (1112) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Huge foamy eruption as the liquid dribbles from its bottle. Great retention & lace. Bright, springy, peppery yeast dominates the aroma. Coriander plays second fiddle.

Taste brings everything together, albeit not deliciously. Peppercorns show up more boldly on the palate. Bitter yeast at the end. Too much carb, as expected. Another mediocre Piperworks beer.

alexsdad06 (4531) - Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2013
22 oz. bottle shared with the local group (Jan 17, 2013). Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a big fluffy white head. The aroma has some orange citrus with peel, pink peppercorn spice, herbal notes, a splash of ginger and pale malts. The flavor is very peppery highlighting the pink peppercorn, light fruity, some orange citrus, herbal, mild funk, grass, lightly toasted malts, and a hint of ginger. Interesting, but kind of all over the place.

Lowenbrau (1729) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 22, 2013
65cl bottle @Lúpulo Feroz, Oviedo. Coriander, ginger, spicy aromas. Pours cloudy golden, with nice white head, some presistance, high to medium body, high carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is so spicy, overwhelming ginger, some coriander, subtle hot notes. Tremendously unbalanced, some hot aftertaste, unpleasant.
