Poured from 750 mL bottle into cervoise. New recipe and bottle conditioned.
A: Pours a nice orange hue and there's a decent amount of carbonation, but a head really doesn't form which is a bummer.
S: Soft orange, cinnamon spice, peppercorns, and a hint of rye. Still lacking.
T: Nice peppercorns with a bit of tingle. Soft orange, cinnamon, rye, and a bit of farmhouse funk and peach.
M: Medium body. Spicy tingle from the peppercorns. A bit on the flat side.
D: Not a bad beer, but definitely a disappointment. Perhaps a problem with the bottling?

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

P: Hazy amber, fine tan one finger had that dissipates fairly fast but leaves great lacing.
A: Not much special here. Lemon, malt and yeast.
T: Real lemon lime first, fresh bread, malts, strong Caribbean spice.
M: Spice on the tongue, well rounded, nicely carbonated, slight bitterness. Looking lasting pepper corn.
O: I actually like this Farmhouse Ale, it has some interesting tastes and mouth feels that the modern asked seem to becoming far too predictable! Well done CBC.

Pours a nice cloudy straw color with a hint of amber/red. Smells fantastic and just like pink peppercorns, honey, cloves and citrus. Little to no head. Nice taste with a mild heat that lasts start to finish. Medium with nice carbonation.
