3.33/5  rDev -7.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

This brew pours a golden brown color with a 1/2 finger head which does not last long. Light lacing.

Dank yeast, diacetyl pepper, lavender and sweet malts.

The taste is pretty bland, sweet malts a little lemon then the pepper comes in at the end. The pepper does provide a burning type of heat that almost saves the day but it is not quiet enough to make me like this beer.

The mouthfeel is a bit tangy, a little bubbly and carbonated.

Overall this is a pretty plain Saison. There is not much hear unless you like pepper and then there is not enough of it. I wish this brew had been as good as the artwork on the bottle.

3.18/5  rDev -11.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Pours a cloudy, dark golden orange color with tangerine edges and a half finger, off-white head that immediately fades into a thin ring.  Minimal spotty lacing left behind.

Spicy, earthy aroma with a strong peppery presence along with funky barnyard yeast, bread, light fruit, citrus, grass, straw and earthy hops.  Hoppier presence than expected but still some farmhouse must.  Peppercorns fade as it warns but are still prominent in the nose.  Some flower petal/rose water character complimenting the bready farmhouse yeast and citrus zest.  

Medium body with a strong  bread/yeast character along with spicy peppers that compliment the zesty citrus notes.  Strong carbonation with earthy funk, grassy hops and spicy peppercorn.  Prominent wheat/bread/bubblegum flavors taking away from the saison/farmhouse yeast and spicy peppercorns.  Somewhat floral but I was expecting  this beer to have more farmhouse funk.  Instead, it feels more like a peppery wheat beer that's been aggressively hopped.

3.46/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Coming in a 650ml bomber brown bottle, bottle-conditioned; no BB date is printed on the bottle/label, served gently chilled in Hapkin’s short-stemmed tulip-shaped sniffer.

A: pours a dark golden to light amber hue, coming with great clarity, a thin off-white foamy head and rather restrained level of carbonation.
S: pepper-cone-ish spicy and dusty notes combine with sweet wood aroma, coriander-seed-like spicy esters, sugary pale malts, semi-sweet orangey citrusness and faintly funky yeastiness to deliver a light bodied but intriguing experience. Given a good swirl, other elements emerge such as spelt malt, old tangerine peels, etc.
T: lightly carbonated on the entry, first there comes an acute flavour dominated by white pepper spiciness and almost coriander-like esters, ensued by lightly tannic citric peel-ish as well as lightly phenolic undertones against light-bodied pale maltiness. The flavour texture remains quite flat, though, and the finishing touch, despite being pleasantly spicy and delicately bitter, does not deliver anything deeper or substantial.
M&O: medium-bodied, lightly carbonated but sometimes the texture falls a bit flat; this spiced Saison does have some charmingly spicy elements to it, but falling short of the level of complexities that could hook my palate.

The beer is an orange color. Clear, no yeast. Thick head which dissipates. When I try to smell the beer, I can tell there's something there, but my sense of smell is too weak to pick it up. The flavor is initially what I expect from a saison, but then the peppercorns hit. They work nicely with the hops. Very tasty. The spice from the peppercorns lingered, which I liked.
