Served from bottle into a Westbrook snifter (it was brewed there after all). Poured a vibrant yellow-orange with a minimal white head that remained throughout. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, wheat, floral, spices, and earth. The flavor was of sweet malt, wheat, fruit, floral, spice, and earth. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty decent brew. The nose on this was actually not too bad. I really wish it would have brought a little complexity to the plate as it left me hanging. The flavor was a little more on the one-sided flavor side. There was mainly a big earthy tone and the spices that were advertised kind of took a back seat in this one. Not a bad brew but definitely not a top contender for the best of the style.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a hazy light to medium golden amber with fine one finger white head with great retention and lacing. Aroma of bready malt, coriander, clove, mild saison yeast, slightly vegetal. Flavor begins with light sweet malt, light fruit, saison yeast and quickly develops more intense Belgian spicing and mild yeast funkiness, finishing with a dryer saison spiciness and bitterness. Nice light creaminess to the body, more than expected from a saison style. Interesting hybrid between saison and Belgian styles; body and initial fruit flavors lean towards a Belgian pale, but a saison yeast character develops quickly and finishes this ale. I liked both the initial lighter taste and final peppery spiciness and the flavor transition. Not easy to categorize, but refreshing and tasty. Nice mouth feel.

A: The beer is relatively clear pale yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that quickly died down, leaving delicate lacing on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of peppercorns are present in the nose along with notes of Belgian yeast.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell, except that the peppercorns are especially prominent in the finish and provide a moderately strong amount of spiciness that lingers through the aftertaste. Slight hints of funk also become apparent once the beer begins to warm up.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. The peppercorns make your tongue tingle a little bit.
O: The one thing that stands out about this beer is that the finish and aftertaste deliver a big bite from the peppercorns. You need to let this beer warm up a bit so some of the funkiness from the Brettanomyces yeast comes out, otherwise you may think it's a one dimensional peppery beer.
