COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Jeremy White, who works in the IT department at Samuel Adams, channeled his love of Belgian beers to create his Lemon Pepper Saison, a classic Belgian-style brew. Jeremyís flavorful, refreshing and lighter-bodied beer is brewed with Grains of Paradise, an exotic tropical spice also found in Samuel Adams Summer Ale. The peppery flavor is complemented by a slightly sweet aroma with hints of vanilla and citrus, making this beer the perfect cool down to a hot summer day.

Bottle @ Paulís saison tasting. Golden pour with white head. Lemony citrus, pepper and other spice tones. Body lacking a bit, flavor leaves you wanting something more.

Long review short, it is a competent summer ale/saison with an interesting spice kick at the end. For some the spice may ruin the usual sunny citrus flavors of a summer ale, but perfect for the people who like new and interesting things.

Bottle. Pours a bruin body with an off white head and light retention. Aroma of white pepper corns, light grass and citrus hop tones, and a hint of spiciness. A hint of lemon with a biscuit like malt tone. Light sweeter finish. Okay.

I sort felt like this tasted like the season Iíve used on fish....lemon, pepper with a fizzy carbonation. Actually liked quite a bit.

12oz bottle...and on tap at GABF where I met the brewer. The beer pours a clear golden color with a large white head and good lacing. Pretty nice aroma of sweet malt, funk, lemon, and pepper. The flavor is a little on the sweeter side, but not too much. Pale malt, funk, lemon, and black pepper. Not bad. Medium-bodied with average carbonation and a dry finish. Pretty good beer actually, which surprised me.

I donít taste lemon pepper. It is a light bodied saison. Quite sweet, with Belgian yeast and light citrus. I would like more flavor and aroma. Light haze in this gold beer.

THOUGHTS: Very Belgian. Would have liked to see this one bottle conditioned. The pepper was way more noticeable in the flavor than in the aroma. A nice, refreshing beer for summer. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a sparkling, medium golden with a large, white head that mostly diminished and left good to excellent lacing. The aroma was light to moderate light bread; moderate spicy yeast; light pepper, lemon and citrus. The initial flavor was sweet and lightly acidic; while the finish was moderate to heavily sweet and slightly sour with and average to long duration. There was lemon, malt, pepper, spicy yeast, honey, sugar water and floral hops. The light to medium body was a bit syrupy and then dry with fairly fizzy carbonation and a slightly chalky finish.

Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma is sweet of citrus, lemon, yeast, wheat, and a hint of bubblegum. Flavor is citrus, lemon, yeast, and some wheat up front with a finish of bubblegum and just a slight hint of alcohol.

I went into this one with low expectations and was pleasantly suprised. Aroma off and seemed like a lemon soap. I was very happy with the clean crisp taste. Very easy drinking and this is far from my normally liked styles. Good brew!

Bottle shared by MrPickles...thanks Andy! - Pours crystal clear yellow with a small foamy white head. Lightly skunky, with some clove, a hint of artificial lemon, apricot, and a hint of plastic. Pretty similar taste--really fruity with a bit of skunk in the background. Iím assuming the light apricot is the Grains of Paradise. Similar to the New Glarus Imperial Saison, but not as syrupy and heavy. Not getting the lemon pepper, but loving how light, fruity, and subtly spicy this is. Light and watery, but it kind of works with the good carbonation. Very solid.
