Love the artwork!

Pours a beautiful golden blonde with about a 85/15 ratio. Thin head in my glass. The thought of peppercorn in a beer is enticing.

Spicy yeast meets peppercorn. Very intense aroma that draws the nose in.

It tingles the taste buds with a spicy kick enhanced by the use of peppercorn. It's literally like pouring ground black pepper into a beer. I do not mean that as a slight because it's unique.

Lingering citrus, spice and peppercorn notes. Can't forget the citrus. Oddly thirst-quenching too, which is a traditional hallmark of the style.

Highly recommended if you want something that will literally tingle the taste buds.

Poured from a bomber into a nice tulip glass I picked up at Left Hand.

A- Dark golden honey in color with a nice haze. A very big frothy creamy white head that recedes slowly leaving lots of froth on the glass.

S - Getting a nice biscuit malt scent with some spice undertones.

T - Nice complexity in this brew, get malts, spice and of course the peppercorn that give this a nice dry spicy flavor.

M - Dry, medium bodied with medium carbonation.

O - Not really surprised at the overall scores as most of the folks on this site are into bigger bolder beers. I like this beer as for a farmhouse it has good spicing but the peppercorn helps bring a very nice dryness to the overall flavor with nice malt hints.

This beer exceeded all expectations in the flavor department. I wasn't anticipating such intense pepper flavor! I sort of figured there would be limited pepper notes at the finish for an overall unremarkable drinking experience. I was quite wrong indeed...Sgt Pepper is remarkably hot and peppery while still being refreshing at the same time. I can't wait to drink more of this!

The pepper is a very favorable with the rye and lend a different and exciting flavor to this CBC farmhouse ale.

Lives up to its label, which too many don't. Holy pepper, Batman! Balances well, an enjoyable diversion

Enjoyed the hell out of this brew, great initial taste not too bitter no after taste, and the pepper flavor was perfect not too peppery.
