3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 This is a Belgian fusion ale. I sampled a pint at the DC location that filled my glass with a cloudy, bright amber to orange color draft with a nominal foam head that left no discernible lacing. The flavor profile builds on the pepper spice and yeast qualities of the aroma, and adds orange marmalade and lemon citrus to the blend of tastes that also reveals the unusual rye malt backbone and a touch of alcohol. The finish is refreshingly dry. Good.

Draft pour, the bartender wasn’t actually too helpful regarding what was on tap outside the titles - he said he was pouring a rye saison, so here I am. Poured an slightly hazy orange color with a medium-small sized white fluffy head. Aroma was some notes of black pepper, rye grains, sweet malts. Flavor was a touch on the bready side, with some rye, sweet malts. A bit thin, but refreshing. drowland (9186) - Georgia, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Sampled during CBC 2013. Orange pour with a small khaki head. Pepper aroma, phenolics, bits of sweet fruity esters and doughy Cheerio malts. Fruity flavor, phenolics, doughy malts. Not bad. pilgrimoutlaw (888) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2013
