Poured into a Due South Brewing Co. snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours a dark amber color with a ¼ inch off-white head that doesn't retain long before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a small center patch of sheer surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves small clots behind on the glass.

S- Sweet aroma of Saison yeast and some spice but not just peppercorn. There's also some rosemary and lavender that's just as prevalent.

T- The sweetness continues in the flavor and the capsaicin burn of the peppercorn comes in but is very subtle and complimentary letting the other spices and the yeast contribute equally. Incredibly drinkable and delicious.

M- Quite sharp and hot from the peppercorn burn but is very welcome and not overwhelming. Medium-low carbonation and a medium body.

O- As far as saisons brewed with peppercorns go, this one hits the mark as far as balance goes. Just enough heat to keep it drinkable and plenty of other elements to play off of. Would definitely buy this again.

Pours a slightly hazy honey gold, thin white head dissipates to a bit of lace.

Smells of honey, lemon citrus, coriander, and spicy peppercorns.

Tastes of mildly sweet honey, lemon citrus tartness, and grassy malts with some notable pepper character. Has a bite at the end.

Medium body with a light tingle of carbonation on the tongue followed by a pepper sting in the throat.

A good light refreshing saison, hides its strength well, and brings the unique addition of peppercorn spice which adds welcome but palatable zing to the beer. While it is certainly different, its quite good and worth trying. Whether you like it or not will partly depend on how much you can deal with spiciness in a beer and partly on how open you are to interpretation within the style.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a rich golden amber with a half finger white head kept persistent by streams of carbonation. Aroma of sweet bready malt, Belgian yeast and distinct and spicy black pepper. Interesting! There is an initial assault of fresh cracked peppercorns, then light fruit (apple and white grape) and faint malt that does lean towards a saison. Light bodied with more pepperiness from the carbonation. The pepper was distinct and forward, but I liked the level of spiciness. I was wondering whether the pepper would outlive its welcome for a whole bottle, but I actually started liking it more and more. It sounds like this is another series to push the envelope for unusually flavored beers. I really liked virtually all of the Beers of the Apocalypse and this is a great start for this series. On the other hand, if you are not a fan of fresh pepper, this may not work for you.
