5 oz pour into a tasting glass on tap at the Wicked Weed taproom.
L – A sort of greenish-straw color with a little less than a finger of bubbly, white froth. Decent retention with some lacing. Clear with lots of bubbles. I’m guessing the greenish color is from the peppers – it’s pretty interesting looking.
S – Definitely getting some peaches and some peppers. I don’t get as many traditional saison aromas, but the headlining ingredients are present.
T – It starts off with grainy, bready malt and sweet peaches and then a big kick of spice comes in from the habaneros. The great thing about this beer is that you can taste the actual peppers as opposed to only feeling the heat from them like some peppered beers. Once the heat fades, there’s an earthy, peppery, dry yeast finish. Really tasty and interesting.
F – Light-bodied, good carbonation, a crisp and slightly creamy mouthfeel, and a very spicy and dry finish. Heat from the peppers sticks around for a while.
O – This is a really cool and tasty beer. I wasn’t sure how well peaches and habaneros would go together (especially in a beer), but Wicked Weed makes it work. As I said before, there aren’t a lot of saison characteristics because they get overshadowed by the headlining ingredients, but I think a saison is the perfect base beer for a creation like this. Great beer from Wicked Weed.
