madvike (2898) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Bottle - Pours hazy yellow with a thin white head. Nose is white pepper, dry dusty yeast, lemongrass and real dry malt. Taste is the same. Pepper isn’t overly spicy, but it makes it a bit angular. Super dry, with the yeast peeking its head out. Long, spicy, dry finish. Thinnish body with fluffy carbonation. A little too dry for my tastes.

Sample from bottle at the FoBAB documentary party. Very nicely malty with a little bit of spice, although I totally missed the peppercorns. Instead, I thought the taste was very savory like a good Belgian beer. Touch of funk. A lot of yeast swirled up from the bottom.

jandd1983 (2753) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Sampled at DLD 2013. It poured a hazy pale yellow with a white head. The aroma was of light spice with sweet grain and a hint of light red fruits. The taste was of sweet grains, light spice, peppercorn and light fruits with Belgian yeast and slightly bitter grass. Very good.

Huhzubendah (2659) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Shared by noodleuser. Thanks man! The beer is hazy and golden yellow with a soft white head. The aroma brings fruity esters, earthy tones, yeast, bread dough, light spice. The peppercorns emerge more as the beer is allowed to warm. Light sweetness with freshly cut grass. Medium bodied with average carbonation. A tasty beer and solid example of the style.

msante79 (2211) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Bottle from Binny’s Lincoln Park. Pours hazy golden with orange tints with white head. Aromas of biscuity malts, earthy spices, pepper, banana, and clove. Flavors of peppery spices, banana, clove, and some yeast. Not the lightest saison, but a tasty one.

Bottle from West Lakeview Liquors. Batch 152. A glowing golden-orange color pours out of the bottle with a nice thick fluffy white head. A firm layer sticks around for the long haul. Really enjoy the aroma here; soft yeast and straw pair well with fruity notes of apple, pear, and strawberry. Light pepper mixes in as well as floral notes, that’s initially restraint until this breathes a bit and a stronger rose scent comes out. Lively in the mouth with cracker, yeasty, and floral sweetness. A light touch of fruity esters, yeast, straw, and rose peddles provide this with some good depth. Dry and peppery finish with plenty of floral sweetness hanging around. Refreshingly light despite the abv with a really good balance of sweetness from flowers, fruit, and crackers and dry, spicy notes from the Peppercorns. Yep, good one.

Dfonorow (1600) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 29, 2014
On tap at Mash Tun Festival 2013. Hazy golden with a white head. Nose is of pepper spice, flowers, pale malts, and earth. Flavor is a bit spicy as well with notes of wood, herbal hops, grass, earth, and peppercorn. A pepper saison? No thanks.

Batch 151. Aroma is a very zesty lemony farmhouse. Touch or Belgian yeast. Taste starts golden Belgian single and finishes with a lemon and pepper burst. Lots of carbonation.

Pours a hazy golden orange with a white head and sweet aroma of peppercorns and spices. Taste is sweet, nice spice and fruit notes with a touch of peppercorn and lemon zest leading to a dry finish. Very drinkable, nice saison
