Review: Orange Pepper Saison

Orange Pepper Saison - as reviewed by Derek

Aroma - bubblegum and bananas.

Look - amber with great head retention (the picture was probably over a minute from an aggressive pour).

Flavor - bananas and cloves up front, hints of pepper in the finish. There are hints of bitter citrus that come through, but they don't blend as well as I'd like.

Mouth-feel - I cranked up the C02 a little bit, so it has a little bit of a bite, but it is fairly light on the tongue.

Overall - I'm pretty happy with it, I have the peppery finish I wanted, but the orange bitters seem to not have blended in well. One suggestion was that the glycerine on the bitters might have affected the taste. Overall I'd give it a 3.5 / 5.
