An American style Hefeweizen with fresh Jalapenos added to the boil. This beer is surprisingly sweet and smooth with just a hint of heat to finish. Most of the Jalapenos have the seeds taken out so surprisingly this Jalapeno Hefeweizen has very little heat but a whole lot of flavor.

Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer is served a hazy golden color with a tiny fizzy white head. The head fades super-fast leaving almost no lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is biggest of a hot pepper smell as may be expected for the style. Along with this aroma comes some other lighter notes of wheat bread and a light citrus smell of orange and lemon as well as some yeast. Taste – The taste begins with a dry wheat flavor with a hint of a citrus of orange and lemon. These citrus remains very light and fades almost entirely away at the end. The wheaty flavors of the brew lose a little bit of ground as well all while a black and jalapeno pepper spice come to the tongue. These flavors begin mild, but gain potency to the end, where they mix with the wheat and dry taste to leave a nicely spiced and somewhat hot and crisp wheat flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thinner side with a carbonation level that is rather moderate. For the hot and spicy but dry flavors of the brew the feel is quite nice and makes it a quite drinkable and moderately refreshing brew in light of the heat. Overall – While I am not a huge hot pepper beer fan this one was not too bad and the heat mellowed the normally sweeter hefe flavors nicely, with it overall being rather drier and drinkable overall.

Sample at brewery. Pours clear pale gold. Aroma is straight up fresh raw jalapenos. Whoa. Also Laffy Taffy banana. Light body, easy to drink. Too much pepper (not in a spicy way - just in a raw pepper way), but true to their word I guess. Fun beer at any rate.

On tap at the brewery from notes taken at the time. Pours cloudy golden color white head and poor head retention. Aroma is of peppers and that is about it. Taste is slight wheat with a jalapeno aftertaste. Mouthfeel is thin and watery.

Draft at Bowser’s because I needed something to try and scrape the diacetyl off my tongue, and this seemed like the best way to go about it. For a chili beer, this (shockingly) is remarkably pleasant. Pours cloudy gold, with a thin white head and poor lacing. Nose is fresh jalapeno peppers, with some light clean malt, but the peppers rule the roost here. Flavours of sweet wheat and fresh bell peppers, with just a little bit of heat from the pepper. Really nie jalapeno character. How is it that they can make such a surprising Chili Beer, but they make the worst IPA on the planet?
