puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 28, 2009
Tap at the Blind Tiger during NYC Craft Beer Week. Kind of sweet, juicy, fruity aroma, a bit peppery. Big pepper in the flavor, spice, muggy/lockerroom/sweat. Tons of spice. Fun beer.

CapFlu (5127) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2009
(Draft) Sampled at GCBF 2009 in Victoria on September 9, 2009. Cedar/juniper resin, peppery. Pretty wild stuff. Resin in the after palate. Bready. A cross hash of everything. Really interesting. And I laughed pretty hard when my non-geek friends dumped this and said it was undrinkable... oh so wrong. I could have drank this all day. 10/4/8/4/18

notalush (5878) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 26, 2009
GABF2009 - one of the better saisons of the evening - a lovely beer with tons of aromatic spices and a zesty, peppery finish - light, crisp, effervescent, just like I like my saisons - dry, crackery maltiness - soft herbal notes that work really well with those dry malts - just the right amount of peppery heat in the finish to make things interesting - very nice.

JoeMcPhee (9427) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2009
Tap at Blind Tiger. Deep amber pour. The nose is lightly spicy with a bit of fresh malt and a kiss of black pepper as well. Fairly lean with a nice crackery maltiness and a touch of flinty hoppiness. A lightly wild nose with a fairly floral component as well. There is an almost bretty component underneath the spiciness. Hops are here and show a kiss of citrus and a bit of herbal character. Nice and fresh and lightly floral. Not really a saison, but it’s a nice spiced Belgian ale.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - SEP 16, 2009
On tap at the Blind Tiger - NYC. Pours a very cloudy peachy orange, with a fluffy straw-white head. Unique herbal aroma. Wow. That peppercorn is strong. Nice floral, herbal character coming off. Super fresh. Flavor is a lesser version of the aroma. Crisp, orangey, and spiced. Aromatic. Nice. Good balance of the yeast character and some sweet malts. A delicious beer. Foamy. Solid, with unique and delicious character from the pepper corn. Very nice.

DalzAle (2037) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - SEP 11, 2009
Tap. Apricot colored pour, little carbonation and aroma was nothing more than refreshing fresh ground pepper. Taste was yeasty, malty and very herbal; and of course more pepper all the way through to the finish. Out of all the beers I tasted from Elysian, I have to say this was probably my favorite. I wished I could have figured an easy way to get a growler of this back on the plane.

BuckeyeBoy (7681) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 1, 2009
On Tap At Elysian Fields Seattle. Pours out a hazy amber topped with a white head. Aroma was of spice, pepper and cardamon. Taste was more of the spice the pepper most of all. Also a little sweetness.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUN 23, 2009
Draft at RNH. Pours a murky amber body with a white head. Very spicy with herbal and burnt tea leaves. Incense and wow a dry earth y india chai with hints of cinnamon and peppercorn. I liked it plenty.

CUJO (383) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 22, 2009
Rattle’n’Hum: Agree with Pwn3d, rated slightly higher because I had less than he did... thanks for the share. The smell is unmistakably peppercorn, lots of peppercorn. Then the taste: Aaarrrggghhh! Ouch, that hurts, not nearly as much as it hurt to watch Pwn3d gag the rest of the night! Elysian was going for peppercorns, well they were right f*$%in on the money!
