A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had an orange-yellow color and a cloudy texture. There was a two inch, foamy, long-lasting head. Not much lacing.

S: The peppercorns are center stage in the aroma, with some yeast evident as well.

T: Tasted of a lot of peppercorns, spicy Belgian yeast, and some malt as well. The typical saison funkiness wasn't very present, but the flavor here had a lot of character and complexity. Oddly tasty.

M: A decent amount of carbonation with a prickly finish. Medium-bodied.

O: Definitely an offbeat take on the saison style. This is a strangely likeable and drinkable beer.

Somewhat hazy golden color. Very spicy peppery aroma which carries over to the taste with some spices and saison yeast in the finish. Medium body. I normally like spicy beers but this is almost overwhelming.

A - Relatively thin white head which rest on a nice, golden/amber body. Very nice lookjng beer here.

S - Very interesting aroma, like nothing I've smelled in a beer before. There's a distinct sweetness that floats off the surface (described on the bottle as peppercorns balancing with spicy hops) And though not overpowering, the aroma certainly lures you in.

T - Peppercorns certainly make their presence known from the first few sips. Nice job. The spicy hops tend to linger in the background... it reminds me of a very tame Viva Habanera.

M - Light to medium mouthfeel, certainly nothing heavy. As noted, the spiciness gives it a kick, but doesn't hang around as an aftertaste.

O - Very ambitious beer here, and I enjoyed it a lot. I can see why people would be looking for a bit more of spice, but I think the balance works.

@ Atwoods, Somerville MA

Arrived amber colored with a tight, thin head in a 12oz princess glass. I hate hipster Cambridge/Somerville small pours. Aroma is an abrasive melange of spices, I'm guessing several different peppercorns and rye is distinctive. Tastes even pepper-ier than it smells. Between the pepper and rye spice and dry finish this is a in your face saison. I can get behind that. I was worried about the caramel malts due to the color of this beer but it's not as caramel/bready as it looks. I consulted the Cambridge website and sure enough it's caravienne. Far too aggressive to have more than one.

I like that Cambridge wasn't afraid to push the spice as far as they did.
