3.55/5  rDev -4.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours out orange in color with a 3 finger white head with great retention and some nice lacing.

Smell is a little spice, some orange, pineapple, a TINY little bit of funk.

Taste definately has some spice that I can't put a finger on, there is a little citrus, a tiny bit of funk but I would have to say that the spices are really the forefront of the beer.

Mouthfeel is pretty thin as one would expect. Maybe a tiny bit more than thin but that's about right for the style.

Overall it pours out really nice, the smell and taste are OK for the style and the mouthfeel is to be expected. Nothing to get excited about compared to a Belgian saison but it's OK.

3.71/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

a: Slightly ruddy golden, pours with a fluffy, sticky head.

s: Prickly Belgian yeast, light apricot and pear, earthy grains, and noticeable pepper.

t: Nice dry saison up front with spicy rye and a hint of fruit. Big, lingering pepper bite, a bit too much for me.

m: Light and airy.

o: I've never tasted a pepperier saison. Good stuff but 22oz was kind of a chore.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

650ml bottle. Shaker glass @ Cervecería Freiburg. Golden brass color, veiled appearance. White froth leaves a thin but lasting layer on top. Belgian yeast, hints of bread, mildy toasted malts & spices as well as subtle Brett touch. Soft malty upfront & sparkling sensation. Increasing peppery & spiced flavors. Medium to full body. Moderate carbonation. Oily & funny palate. Long spicy finish & aftertaste. Complex beer.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Batch 01. Clear orange with a fluffy, light beige cap. Good head retention, spotty lacing. Aromas of sour wheat, grain and spice, hint of banana and bubblegum. Mild sweetness throughout, grainy and grassy, some wheat, lots of spicy pepper mid-palate through the finish that really lingered. Med/light body, airy carbonation, nice texture. An interesting beer, but the pepper was a bit overpowering for me after about half a glass.
