A - Pours a fairly clear golden color with a thin finger of frothy white head. The head fades down fairly to a ring around the glass leaving behind a touch of lace.

S - I thought the nose was rather weak. There wasn't a lot that came out you do get some spices in there with a lot bit bit of citrus but like I said they didn't stand out and you really had to dig to get that out of this beer. I also did detect the peppercorns used in this one also but there is a lot going on in the nose of this beer it's kind of hard to pick something that stands out. IMO it just had a weak nose.

T - I thought the beer started off kind of on the citrus side which was kind of surprising because I thought it would be more spices. In the middle of the beer is where the spices and peppercorns come out and play. It was nice just wish it would have been more spiced that's all.

M - Light bodied with lots of carbonation. Smooth with a tart and spiced finish.

D - Easy to drink but don't think I would want a lot of this just because it's not my style and like I said before I thought there would be more spices. Glad I got to try but wouldn't buy a whole six pack of this would just put a bottle in a mixed six pack or something like that.
