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. Jeremy’s 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 from the Natomas BevMo. Pours rather orangish with a foamy white 4 finger head. Nice aromas of citrus and pepper. Medium plus body with sharp carbonation. Flavor is lemon with pepper. Each sip starts a little sweet, and then it goes on to dry lemon and pepper. Good. Very drinkable. Alligator pepper - related to cardamom. Check wiki.

daknole (9115) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 29, 2010
Goldish pour. Aroma has a bit of lemon, hops, caramel...no real pepper. No saison aroma either. Flavor is well not what it says it is. Tastes like a watered down and slightly spicy version of regular sam adams. Bummer.
