On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazed gold with a medium sized white head. Gently floral with faint peppercorn. Medium bodied, light spice, dries out into peppercorn heat, but so subtle that I wouldnt know if I wasnt expecting it. Light musk on the finish.

Possibly my first saison from a can, although Ive had this beer in the corked format. Lots of aromas from the peppercorns, plenty of heat from the spicing, and other, lesser spices. Hops contribute some citrus: lemon, orange. Light palate and a good weight for a saison, mildly earthy malts and a dry finish.

Shared 22 oz. bottle. As Peppercorn Saison. Pour is cloudy copper with a white head. Fruity aroma with peach, spice and yeast. Taste is yeast, spice, mild fruit, ginger notes and possibly some faint peppercorn. Dry finish. Enjoyable.

darbeer75 (762) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - MAY 18, 2016
Aroma: fruity with a little dank-ness; Appearance: hazy, dark golden pour with white head that dissipates slowly; Taste: light and pleasant with typical sweetness and yeastiness of a saison without the sourness; kind of like a Belgian ale; Palate: great finish that lingers; Overall: very solid, non-crazy saison; would be good for introducing someone to the style.

slowrunner77 (11049) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAY 18, 2016
Meh. An ok saison with peppercorn prominent. I like that, but pretty standard and a little gassy otherwise. Plus, it was a 750. Prefer the tallboy cans.

BierMeHoos (587) - Maryland, USA - APR 11, 2016
Where: Old Line Fine Wine Spirits & Bistro. How: Half pint pour. Appearance: Nice yellow hue, no head. Aroma: Good peppercorn accents, typical saison notes. Taste: Buttery and grassy, saison typical. Palate: Bit thin, but usual for style. Overall: On draft at Old Line, not sure if 3 Stars is starting up production again because its not listed on their website and BeerAdvocate says its been retired.

floydslip (374) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Somewhat cloudy copper beer with a billowing off white head that sets up in peaks. Pungent nose of lemon, coriander and funky-sour yeast. Flavor loses the funk, but retains most of the sourness with bitter lemon and rice vinegar followed by a mild bitterness with slight peppery notes tingling the palate. Good beer.
