Citrus, ginger, and chili aroma. Cloudy yellow apearance with frothy white foam. The taste is sweet up front but rounds out nicely with a mild spicy burn that hits you in the back of the throat.

badlizard (5539) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAY 15, 2013
On tap. Hazy yellow with a fizzy white head. Wheat, lime, and chili pepper aroma. Bright lively palate. Amazingly good lime, orange, and other sweet citrus flavors up front followed by a warming mild chili pepper and black pepper taste. Well balanced and damn good.

on tap at jack astors. Hazyish yellow pour with a thin white head. Smells a bit spicy, chili. Tastes like a chipotle smoked salsa. spicy burn finish. Weird.

rob6239 (622) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2013
On tap takeover at Cole’s in Buffalo. Pours light gold and cloudy with a white head. Taste is sweet like a wheat beer but has a sharp, hot zing with the peppers.

argo0 (11453) - Washington DC, USA - APR 7, 2013
Draft. Clear pale straw body with small white head. Aroma is medium sweet, lemon, wheat, light chili heat. taste is medium sweet, chili pepper burn, some orange/lemon, light wheat. Light body, low carbonation. Too much heat for me to fully enjoy.

maxwelldeux (3611) - Everett, Washington, USA - APR 4, 2013
Draught. Pours a hazy dark golden color with a moderate white head. Nose is hugely peppery with some great spice to it - reminds me a bit of Ghost Face Killah. Taste is quite spicy and hot; still drinkable, but not for people who aren’t a fan of spice.

bhensonb (10980) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe. 12 IBU. Pours dishwater gold with a creamy white head. Real firm chili aroma. Think sliced serrano. Med minus body. Flavor is mostly chili. Med hot with a lime hint. Chili builds and burns. Nice change of pace. If rating several, make this the last one!

swoopjones (5808) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAR 21, 2013
draft at Blue Monk. paler yellow pour. medium bodied. Spicy heat, lip burner. Heat from thai chilies is potent. Interesting beer but a tough ne to have a lot of

AirForceHops (3144) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Draft @ Sunset Grill and Tap. Very creative here. Standard pint shows a nearly clear gold with ample carbonation. Nose is lime, wheat and a light pepper. Taste is subtle pepper until about the 4th or 5th sip. Then comes the heat. They truly used chili peppers, to the pointy lips started to sting. Damn, it’s got some kick! Not for the light hearted. Lime and wheat help the balance but it has a strong kick in the back end. Whoa! A bit so much that I had to pass my brew my buddy that finished about half my glass. Intense.

Pours clear yellow. Aroma is spicy green pepper. Taste is spicy and refreshing wheat. Heat is nice
