Finally a beer that is actually spicy. This one is a refresher, huge lime and chili notes. the base beer could be better but with the additives im not complaining.

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.

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.

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.

Sample at Standard Market. I admit, I do like my chiles in my beers. Mix of spices in the nose. Hazy straw color. Taste brings on a light burn of chiles right at the start. Ginger is there, too. Can’t quite catch anything resembling lime, except for a note that I usually find with lemonglass, so I guess that’s it. Keeps up a little burn at the back of my mouth, but once swallowed, there’s little after-taste.

Draft at House of Brews - Pours a cloudy golden/yellow with a little white cap. The noise is wheaty, spicy, and a little lime. The taste is nicely balance. Its bready with a mix of the thai spices, ginger, and lime. The heat hits you slightly in the end, nothing over pouring. I’m not a fan of wheats but this is pretty good.

On tap at The Brass Tap, poured a cloudy golden yellow color with aromas of wheat, light lime and a touch of heat. Flavors were wheat up front with some nice lime, and spicy chilis on the back end. A nice take on a wheat beer, that was quite enjoyable.

Draft at ballast point wIth Linh. Pours a bright yellow golden body with nice haze and white creamy lacing. Aroma is muted wheat and lots of pepper, lime and spice. Mouthfeel is hot spicy pepper, lime, and a very light wheat that rounds out the spice quite well. Not as in your face as the Habanero Sculpin, but still a nice aggressive heat that’s tolerable and drinkable.

Lagunitasfan (1313) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 21, 2012
On tap at the Old Grove location. Light pale yellow with decent haze. Nose is yeast and lime and Ginger. Up front taste is high tart sweet. Lotsa lime and a good dose of Ginger. Clean and bright. High fresh chili pepper bite comes in late and stays to party after the beer is long gone. Not overpowering or off-putting, but obvious. Nice beer.

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!
