3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Hopcat...pour was a light gold with a small white head. Notes of earthy hops and citrus are apparent with the peppercorn making an appearance as well. I was actually expecting the peppercorn to be subtle to the point of nonexistence but I was proved wrong. Body was crisp and refreshing with flavors of light wheat, light citrus and pepper. Good brew though I couldn’t pick up on the coriander notes whatsoever.

On tap at Ashley’s. Poured gold with no head. Aroma had notes of citrus peels, cinnamon, peeper and a touch of coriander. Flavor began with sweet grain flavors before spices listed above kick in. Pepper was quite dominate in aftertaste.

5oz sample at brewery 7/2/09-Pours a hazy golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma of peppercorns and citrus. Taste of the same with some coriander and citrus. This is a different tasting light bodied brew but still very well balanced and quite drinkable.

I had this on tap at MBGSF 09. It was a light orange color with a white head. Aroma was very nice, spicy, like the name states...but really it was a bit citrusy and had a lot of pepper, clove and ginger to the nose. It tasted malty and had a lemon citrus flavor along with all of the spices. Very nice.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2009 At the brewery in May. Orange gold color with citrus and pepper aroma. Strong lemony citrus and spice, malty flavor. A bit of a nice peppery finish. This one is underrated at 3.1. A nice summery beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to Rogueone for sharing a growler. The beer is a hazy orange-amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of pepper and wheat with a touch of malt. Light body with flavors of peppery wheat bread, malt and mild citrus. The finish is lightly spiced and fruity and the pepper lingers a bit. Interesting and above average overall.

Growler, courtesy of GodOfThunder. Pours blonde with a white ring of a head. Nose is pepper, lemon, wheat and yeasty. Peppery flavor leads off, oranges, wheat, lemon, a pepper heavy finish. Light mouthfeel. Different, but quite drinkable, I like the combination of pepper and lemon with the wheat. It works well.
