The Italians do much better with pink peppercorns. This beer, Almond 22, is really nice. An Italian Pale Ale style that brings a crisp start and a round mouth feel. This according tasting notes last spring. It's not savory.
I did not care for the Grimm Candlepower. The farmhouse style was done well, but the sage and pink peppercorn flavor didn't appeal to me at all. Way too savory for beer, I think it reminded me too much of soup broth mixed with beer. Also sold out of Lumen... Oh well. But I did pick up four bottles of MO to compensate
