3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle… Hazy light yellow ale with lots of yeast particles and little to no head. Fruity, grainy, spicy aroma – peppercorns jump out, but the other spices are restrained. A touch funky. Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Sweet, tangy, spicy flavor. Honey and pepper finish. Kudos to dmschefke for providing the bottle!

22 oz bomber. There is definitely pepper in this beer, it hits you right away. However, after a bit it was not as noticeable. Coriander was slightly noticeable and there are other spices. Fantastic take on a white ale. The mouthfeel was a bit creamy and the overall drinkability is great.

Man, they love the black pepper. Really cool take on the witbier deal with a great carbonation and heft in the mouthfeel. The flavor was just overtaken by the numbing spice of the pepper though. Not my cup. Thank You Voodoo. 2009 22oz.

Bottle. Clear copper pour with some floating things. Huge, enormous, wild pepper influence on the nose. This is really strange and unlike any other beer in that sense. Pepper and coriander are more mild in the flavor but dang, that white pepper thing still really brings up the rear. A little spicy. Good and refreshing, I especially like this one for its singular nature..."it insists upon itself."

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle Pours a clear yellow with lots of floaties in the body. Has a big bubbly white head which leaves quickly. Leaves a soapy like lacing. Has a good aroma of fruits and spices. Has a decent carbonation. The flavor is pretty good. Nice mouthfeel. Has a nice spiciness to it while being very refreshing. Has a medium body. The finish is good and so is the aftertaste. This is a super refreshing beer on a hot summer day.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy light orange color with small film of bubbly white head. Aroma is banana, yeast esters, a bit of sweet strawberry, and a pinch of coriander - more sweet than most usually smell. Flavor bit of a watery base, very fresh and smooth, sweet but grassy, nice berriness to it. Overall, more refreshing than many, easy to drink, and overall enjoyable.

Bomber bonus from Steve, thanks hopdogggity dog. Pours orangeish gold with a bright white ring. Nose is slightly coriandery. Taste is sweet and slightly hoppy, peppery with some coriander. All in all ok.

22oz bottle-pours a big white head and hazy orange/yellow color with small floaties. Aroma is pepper, some clove, coriander, wheat, fruit, yeast. Taste is pepper, tangy orange zest, some sweet grain/wheat, herbal. An interesting beer that grew on me as I got further into it. One suggestion: do 12 oz bottles or with 22’s I suggest a swirl to get the solids evenly distributed. Thanks jwc215 for picking this one out.
