ClarkVV (6542) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 21, 2016
Bottle at Novare Res, 7/10/16.
Large beige head is well-retained atop a deep golden-brass body with a touch of copper and chill haze.
Fruity yeast notes are quite strong and showcase apple, pear, strawberry and peach. A little bit of bubble gum and lots of pepper. Not sure where the yeast phenolics start end and the actual peppercorn begins but its well-done without being overdone. Malts behind it are lightly bready and could be a bit more delicate/soft/succulent to balance these big phenolics.
Still a very high carbonation, with light vegetal qualities, strong esters and phenols and moderately sweet, caramel-tinged cream-like maltiness. Gets peppery-sweet on the end, maybe a bit too much so. Alcohol well-concealed and no flaws. Dont get the spelt really, though I suppose the light cerealic sweetness could be due to the spelt. Interesting and seems like it must have been rather overbearing young.

yngwie (16989) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 12, 2015
Bottle, 750ml, at Novare Res, Portland, Maine. An unclear yellow-orange beer with a dense light beige head. The aroma is lightly oxidized, vinous and quite fruity, with a nice peppery touch, peaches, some lemon hints, cellar, white wine grapes and some barnyard hints. Its full bodied, lightly warming, soft and dry, with flavors of peppery yeast, peaches, generic fruityness, cellar and funk notes and some sweetish maltyness. Decent bitterness too. Lasting fruity and yeast funky finish with a peppery touch. A true beauty. 150609

Damico (3146) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2015
Pours darker golden with an off white head. Aroma brings sweet floral and herbal Belgian like yeast. Flavor brings slightly aged yeast then big sweet herbal notes, a bit of spice bit from the peppercorn takes a bit to show up on the palate, but it is there even 2 years later.

750ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a big frothy white head that fades very slowly. Aroma of sweet grain and bready malts, Belgian yeast, coriander, peppercorns, farmhouse funk, and lemon zest. Taste follows the aroma with a sweetness on the finish. There is a mild yeast and spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. Slightly dry finish, lower level of carbonation, crisp and medium bodied.
