Pours golden with a small head. Not a bad wit. Hints of sweetness to it, but not overpoweringly so. Easy drink. AWint (5) - Albemarle, North Carolina, USA - JUN 18, 2012 does not count
Black peppercorn is a really stellar twist to the light beer. Would go great with a steak!

America Eats, DC tap (expensive as all hell): Pours a light orange with a quickly dissipating head. Aroma is light clove, light malt, and a bit of sugar. This is pretty much a dignified lawn mower beer. Everything is good, but it is so light that it could not be offensive to even the most inexperienced palate. Again, it is not bad, but it is kind of a run of the mill American Belgian Wit. DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Draft at the brewery. Straw yellow colored hazy brew with a medium sized white head, very similar looking to most wits. The nose also has the characteristic barnyard and hay aspects, but that mixed with lots of pepper. Same with the flavor that starts out like many good witbiers, but then gets overpowered by black pepper. Initially I liked it until about halfway through the glass when I was wishing I had some fried food to pair this with, as the pepper was getting to be too much on its own. So as they say, it’s probably lovely with fried chicken, but it’s not one I’ll rush to order again when I’m not eating. TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 27, 2012
Tap at the brewery. SUPER cloudy yeast bomb yellow. Nose is corainder, black peppercorn, orange peel, honey. Flavor is quite peppery, some honey cereal malts, light citrus sweetness. Good, but the peppercorn is a bit overpowering.

On tap at the brewery. Pours hazy bright golden with a funky looking head--clumps a little bit. Nose is honey and pepper and earth. Taste adds lots of black pepper in a pleasant way. Dry finish. Big improvement on the R & D batch, I think. I’d drink more of this, for sure. JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 20, 2012
On tap at Fullsteam, Durham. Faintly cloudy deep golden pour, medium carbonation. Aroma was fairly pleasant, somewhat sharp from the yeast and pepper barely detectable. Body is lightly prickly but mostly just smooth and at times full. Flavors were moderately standard wit but there was enough going on from the additions to make this one moderately more interesting than the norm, especially in the peppery finish.

At Brewery. Good aroma, yeasty. Cheese, dough, clove, pepper. Cloudy Orangy yellow. Tart flavor, sweet streak about it. Light body, creamy mouthfeel, dry finish. Very nice. Real peppery finish. A lot going on with flavor. jtd6628 (362) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 14, 2012
Great beer. The pepper in this ale is savory and comes through without much heat, which complements the lemongrass and citrusy taste really well. craftbeerdesign (2254) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 29, 2012
