Poured into a pint glass. This one pours a clear golden color with a thick fluffy white head.

The aroma is full of spicy pepper. Hints of saison characteristics in the background, but the pepper dominates. The pallet is mostly spicy pepper. Again hints of yeast and some other saison characters but the pepper really takes the forefront.

The body is light with a bit to much carbonation. Overall this one is simply not very good. The pepper detracts to much from this resembling a saison.

Thanks to Reagan1984 for this oddity. Batch 1 from February 2012. Served in a tulip.

A - Quick-dissolving white foam settles to a thin ring, wisps, and minimal lace. Hazy peach flesh body.

S - Tons of peppercorns, spicy esters, herbal and zesty hops(?), and some peach and other stone fruits from the malts.

T - Taste is overwhelmed with white pepper flavor, as well as some vegetal notes, and spicy black pepper and chile heat? Maybe a touch of saison in the periphery.

M - Smooth body, with zesty carbonation, and a very dry finish. No obvious alcohol, which is a plus.

D - Too peppery, even for my tastes. Not the easiest beer to drink. Kind of interesting to try, but Jason and I barely finished our pours.

22oz. bottle procured at Julios. Pours a semi-hazy, dull orange hue with a loose, bright white head that dissipates into a tight band around the shoulders. Nose expresses peppercorn and citrus rind - I can almost smell the heat off the pepper. The taste just has an enormous pepper presence that is borderline unpalatable. I see nothing in the flavor profile that is akin to any saison I've ever had. Consistency on the mouthfeel is somewhat watery and there is definitely a bit of residual pepper burn that lingers between quaffs. In terms of overall impressions, all I can say is it's interesting. The pepper is way too intense for me and it is a borderline palate wrecker. Worth experiencing, but definitely best shared amongst many. Not something I need to revisit again.
