3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle poured to a dimpled goblet at a friend’s party, showing a clear & bright, medium gold color, with a decent layer of soft white head foam, and equally presentable lacing. The nose was lightly herb & spice, with subtle pepper notes. Light bodied, but lively carbonation uplifted the texture, as a touch of fruit sweetness mellowed the already tame, peppery astringency, which came off a little artificial & soapy. Fairly sessionable otherwise.

On tap at Bent River Rock Island. Spicy peppery aroma comes through into the flavor but is lightly offset by a sweet fruitiness. Pretty smooth and easy to drink with a lingering spicy finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper pour with a beige head. Aroma is pepper. Taste is a light malt base with peppers. The heat was not as bad as I thought it would be. The second sip added more heat. Not to bad. Would be good with Tex Mex food.

Not my favorite. Figured I would give it a try but to me beer and peppers don’t mix. Would not try again.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Copper with medium beige head. Aroma of roasted jalapeno and not much else. Medium body, vegetal jalapeno throughout with a slight spicy warming burn. The jalapeno over powers everything else. Might be better if it were a stout and not a wheat beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap, poured into a small sampler glass. The aromas is fried jalapeno poppers. A straw pale color is topped by a light, kinda foamy, kinda thin bubbled head. It has an alright retention with with a very light lace. The taste is a spicy combination of medium sweet and light bitter. It’s a thin texture, light bodied beer with a fuzzy carbonation. It finishes with a nice, spicy sweet jalapeno mouth coating. It lights the palate on fire for a brief spell, but fades. The jalapeno note hangs around in the aftertaste for a bit, but cleans up nicely.
