Got it as a Christmas gift; consumed on 12/28/13. First full review here on BA, so I believe this new release is quite fresh.

A: Poured from the bottle into a Duvel tulip. Body is hazy golden with a small white head.

S: Florally and spicy over bready malt. Cloves and banana are in the house.

T: First impression: it's surprisingly "clean" giving the yeasty nose. After a couple sips, however, I get more of the funkier, yeasty flavors. Foundation of bread doughy malt. Clove and generic spice follows. Finishes fairly clean with lingering spicy-ness and a touch of lemony bitterness and floral hops. Heat is felt in belly, though the 7% ABV is not noted on the palate at all.

M: Medium in heft, carbonation is modest and fine.

O: A good version of a Belgian Pale Ale.

i may have liked this one more than others, although i still dont really get it. is it just a saison? or is there something else i am supposed to be picking up on here? joey pepper implies peppers right? well, i certainly dont get any chili, and if i think i am getting peppercorns on my palate, i could easily be confusing the funky and new saison yeast for a real spice addition. hard to say with this hazy yellow beer, almost looks milky, with a tall and thick white head. the nose and taste are time same, more citrusy hops than expected, but not any bitterness at all, its almost sweet in the finish, with a curiously thick texture and minimal dryness for the style. the yeast is light, which is why i am wondering about the peppercorns, maybe its just a name, if there is a weird spice ingredient in here, it is extremely subtle and in the background. carbonation is about right, medium level, and the body is enormous of the style too. overall a slightly confused and confusing beer, but i like the flavors and feel of it pretty well, its just not what any of us expected for a beer named pepper. evil twin makes amazingly high quality beers, but they dont always make sense to me.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a hazy, golden color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of slight floral, slight citrus, hint of spice, hint of wheat, hint of hops, and hint of sourness. Fits the style of a Belgian Pale Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is also a noticeable tartness. Tastes of earthy malt, sweet malt, hint of grass, slight hop, hint of spices, and a hint of pale malt. Overall, good appearance and decent blend, but the body is overly malty and not great.

Pours just like u want ur Belgium pale to pour like a dirty blonde hue with a tight creamy capped two finger head that just doesn't want to go and lacing wherever it touches and yeah if she was a girl I'd want to know a lot more about her,the smell is true to style yet there's something in there that reminds you it's Evil Twin not some Belgian farmhouse and described in three lines it's Belgian spicy yeast,fruity punchy hops and bready biscuity malts,the mouthfeel is between medium and full with above moderate carbonation which could maybe ease a Little bit but it's still creamy with the biscuity sweet malts,spicy pepper and fruity punchy hops really taming the expected usual over the top remnants of that well known Belgian yeast and overall another great example of balance and less is more,unfortunately the price puts this out of the league where it belongs but if you can grab cheap it's the perfect table beer with a little extra oomph that puts the B in balance cheers.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

From draft, a bright straw color with a nice head and lacing.

Smells of belgian yeast, spice, pepper

Tastes of pepper, slight clove, a slight bready malt

Strong carbonation, light body, very drinkable.

Overall, nice easy drinking Belgian pale, nothing stands out but very well made
