Interesting. Not weissbier really. Actually has some spicy bite to it. Specialty, you’ll taste it once.

It’s a waste of Jalapenos. It’s worth a taste if you’ve never had jalapeno beer but after that the novelty quickly wears off. Grey Fox and I had a pitcher of this one night during the Safari and by the end of the pitcher I was ready to give up drinking. Fortunately I returned to my senses the next day after the effects of the beer wore off.

What is there to say about this beer? Yuck. Jalapenos are better served in salsa than in beer. One could recreate this beer at home by opening a can of Miller Lite and tossing in some chopped peppers. Even our friends from Liechtenstein, who love Bud Light, thought this beer was nicht sehr gut -- not so good. You definitely cannot get drunk in Utah on this beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium yellow, dense tiny/small particles, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly yeasty (dough), with notes of lime and chile. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly burning. This is a reasonable example of why Cave Creek Chili Beer is so terrible. This isn't great, but the chile aroma is only an accent and actually somewhat pleasant...and most importantly, the beer underneath isn't total garbage.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2007 [rerate needed] Not as much excitement as you would think. While they did a good job of making a jalapeno beer, it just doesnt feel right in the mouth. Too light, too watery, artificial taste.

Pretty weak for a chili beer. But see my rating of Ed’s Cave Creek Chili Beer. If I’m gonna have peppers in my beer, I want to taste them.
