Bottle. Clear golden with a fluffy white head. Sweet caramel malt stone fruit and grain aroma. Orange and cognac like flavors with sweet grain notes and a peppery finish. Bright and very lively palate. Very good. JDBaker11058 (2336) - Maryland, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Appearance: lightly hazed golden pour with two fingers of white head and decent lacing; gets increasingly murky closer to the bottom of the bottle. Aroma: a bit like a yeasty, doughy, herb garden, with definite hints of sage and peppercorns, and even a rumor of brett funk (although I think this is brett-free). Taste: yeasty, with some honey, ritz crackers, a bit of saison-like barnyard funk, with some nice herbal earthiness. Finish: surprisingly dry and zesty, with a subtle yet present peppery heat . Notes: Looked great, smelled awesome, and tasted better. Grabbed this on a whim, thinking "I’ve never had anything bad from them". So glad I snagged it.

Draught. Pours light clear yellow with s good initial head. aroma is sweet apples and pears with skins, baking spices, a good bit of pepper. Flavor is light fruit juice sweet with the pepper and bitterness really kicking in and carrying through. Juicy thick lively mf with and astringent end like very light szechuan peppercorns. Really nice. Seems a trippel to me. 1FastSTi (3361) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Effervescent golden body with a tall frothy starch white head. Aroma is very nicely peppery and almost saison like. Reminds me of Temecula, California. Saison like with hay and subtle pepper. Mostly clean palate is medium bodied. Crisp carbonation. Very easy drinking. Just wish it wasn’t $23... yngwie (17186) - 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. It’s 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 Travlr (25876) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Belgian Beer Fest Boston. Hazy yellow color, white edge head. Aroma of peppery and slightly sour straw. Taste is grapefruit, lemon, hay, spice. Very nice. jefcon (1933) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Draft. This brew is flavorful, rich and darn near savory. Rounded spice notes of sandalwood, pepper, hickory and allspice. Long on the palate with plenty of hops to cut through and make things interesting. Lots of depth. Very good stuff.
