Cloudy pour. Not much of an aroma and very thin mouthfeel. For the price it's a travesty.

Clean and crisp with complex peppercorn notes balanced with a nice yeast aroma. Super tasty, had a 750ml from a liquor store for $9.99

Had on draft in DC as Peppercorn Saison. Pours cloudy yellowish orange with a super creamy half finger head. Aroma of fruity funk, pears, maybe some peaches, light peppery aroma but not much there, yeasty. Flavor follows the smell closely with sweet fruits balanced by light spice and a nice funky yeast character, on the sweeter and heavier feeling side for a saison, but I like it. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low scores surprise me on this, as I thought it was pretty good.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Big pop off the cork but no gusher, really solid give. Dam this cage was on tight and painful to take off jesus...

Deep apricot orange with a good brown hue to it, fairly opaque and slightly murky and hazy looking. A nice very fine rising middle column of carbonation though, with a fleeting tan head that has little retention sitting tall at only two fingers. Settles to a half finger sized puck while drinking.

Mild hints of bready yeast and minimal funk. Some spiced like tangerine orange a bit, and very mild pepper. Some peanut butter aromas round out a bit also but quite a bit quiet down in there and subtle.

Palate comes with an interesting twist. Tropical juiced hop orange like body and flavor in the mid palate, with a noticeable malt and mellow sweetness. Slight front tongue pepper more in flavor with a bit of tingly carbonation, and not much aftertaste. Much of the flavor in the front with very little dryness or saison like character.

This sort of comes out like a muted pepper saison, almost tropical American subdued brew in a sort of way. It's actually tasty but really doesn't seem to have much saison farmhouse Belgian character to it at all. Otherwise fine.
