Bottle from West Lakeview Liquors. Batch 152. A glowing golden-orange color pours out of the bottle with a nice thick fluffy white head. A firm layer sticks around for the long haul. Really enjoy the aroma here; soft yeast and straw pair well with fruity notes of apple, pear, and strawberry. Light pepper mixes in as well as floral notes, that’s initially restraint until this breathes a bit and a stronger rose scent comes out. Lively in the mouth with cracker, yeasty, and floral sweetness. A light touch of fruity esters, yeast, straw, and rose peddles provide this with some good depth. Dry and peppery finish with plenty of floral sweetness hanging around. Refreshingly light despite the abv with a really good balance of sweetness from flowers, fruit, and crackers and dry, spicy notes from the Peppercorns. Yep, good one. nuplastikk (6452) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 10, 2013
DC tasting thanks to noodleuser. Hazy tan yellow body. Sweet, but very true to style, belgo mouthfeel. Excellent, really well executed. Fruity and big yeast esters. Really mile with the peppercorn. Nice! jjgmd (2248) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JAN 28, 2014

Batch 21. Pours light yellow with light banana yeast notes. Very deep spice notes of clove and peppercorn which break into a very long finish while deflecting the higher ABV. crossovert (13869) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 29, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2014 A big, spicy saison that not only lets the yeast sing with the clove but the peppercorns add a nice throat burn. Awesome.
