Released today at the Carton Brewery. This Saison will be a regular in their line up, at least for the summer. If I make any mistakes in this review, I apologize as I am writing from memory.

I made a trip down to the brewer to try this before a kayak. It was 79 degrees and this beer was a perfect early spring day new beer Sunday.

A: Dark as porter, or old stock ale, and as flavorful as wine. Good head retention and lacing. Surprisingly dark, no, not for a pepper saison with a name as black as "comma".

S: Black pepper upfront, along with belgian yeast and sweet/peppery body. Inviting. Going to be a great food beer.

T: Extremely original, but true to Saison. I've had some good American ones lately, from Ommegang and 1st Amendment and others, and this one is equal or above them and squarely in the Belgian category. Pepper first and last, but balanced by yeast, grain, sweet malt and fruity sweetness. Grassy, complex and wine like. Would gladly have another.

MF: Light. Well carbonated, clearly built for April to Oct.

Overall: This brewer is on a roll with finding originality and blending to the satisfying core, being both first, original and yet true to style in the backdrop. Must try.
