Review: White Peppercorn, Orange Peel, Vanilla & Orange Blossom Honey Saison

Saison w/ White Peppercorn, Orange Peel, Vanilla & Orange Blossom Honey

Appearance: Orangish, the prefect hew. The beer is slightly hazy with a wonderful billowy head.

Aroma: Slight citra hop from the pour, and a vague sweetness remains after in the aroma. The spices are lost. The orange peel may have added to the citra hop.

Taste: Spicey; pepper and vanilla bean pod. The hops keep the sweetness in check and the honey increases the whole thing.

Mouth feel: Full and rich. The saison yeast really adds to the mouth feel.

Overview: This beer is a nice blend of spice and hops. Overall I think that it loses some of the saisoness by overdoing it. I should have tried this beer sooner, I am not sure what was lost over time.
