Handsome pinkish light amber in the little Chimay chalice with a modest foam. Nice swirls in the glass and plenty of spritz on the tongue. Some malt in the nose with some flowery aromatics and a hint of pepper.

A touch of malty sweetness. Light flavors that go well with the delicate flavorings. Even the pepper is just a light touch. The yeast is the strongest element with a scratchy bitterness and a dry finish. The hibuiscus and rose provide a nice aromatic note to go with the whiff of the barnyard. Even the last splash has that sexy aroma.

A classic Saison with a light touch of yeast and flavor. This is one for the ladies, but it's a step up from Pink Champale. From the 375 ml bottle purchased at the Community Co-op market in Bellingham.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Big white head settles to a thick collar and a thin layer of surface foam. Deep orange body.

Smell - Yeasty and lots of fruity esters. Peppery. Pale malt.

Taste - Kinda floral. A little buttery. Peppercorns are pretty strong. Pale malt and yeasty finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. High carbonation. Buttery.

Overall - Eh. It's ok. Just not very interesting.

Poured into a Gavroche tulip. Pours a medium coppery amber with a slight rose tint and a half finger pure white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of saison yeast, Belgian spicing, light pepper, slightly vegetal. Flavor follows, dominated by saison yeast, peppery and slightly tart spicing, consistent with peppercorns and rose hips; slightly sweet at first, drying out to reveal the saison character and finishing with herbal bitterness from the rose and pepper and a very light, but pleasant floral note. Medium bodied with peppery carbonation. A fairly standard saison profile that is appropriately semi-dry, but perhaps a bit more astringently spiced than necessary but the light floral flavor in the finish redeems this overall and kept me coming back for another sip. An interesting peppery domestic take on a saison.

Black pepper, lots of spices. Kinda odd.

Poured from 375mL bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: medium golden hue with a light, shimmery hazy and a moderate effervescence. Head pours several fingers of pillowy tan foam. I think it's quite attractive!

Smell: quite piquant; it's herbal and very slightly funky. There's a light toastiness and a very autumnal feel to it. I like it.

Taste: very much like the aroma, it's got that strong herbal flavor probably due to the pink peppercorns. There's also just a bit of tartness that comes through. I like it, but the pepper and herbs are a tad overdone.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and a pretty decent creaminess.

Overall: a good beer, if a bit over-spiced.
