Chile and beer are a natural combination, and this ale blends both nicely. Golden with a slight haze and a slight head, the chile is nearly absent from the sof malt and wheat aroma. The flavor is that of a mild American wheat, but the chile taste surges forward in the finish, leaving a easy-going hot pepper burn in the mouth. Pretty decent.

I, too, have a bias towards liking this one. I even gave Cave Creek a half-way decent review. This is based on the generic wheat beer that this brewer makes. The chiles (anaheim and habanero) are only prominent in the finish (as it should be!) This seems a bit too subdued and as Drnk_McDermott pointed out, a tad salty. Keep on experimenting though, Matt! Iím with you, buddy!

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2006 Draft, at FSRB. Based on Station Master Wheat, with Anaheim and Habanero chiles added. And some months after I talked chile beer with Matt and shared a bottle of my homebrew! My plan for world domination continues apace! And yes, the customers find it either a "Love it or Hate it" proposition. So let me known that this review is based on my bias for chile beer. Pours a golden wheat beer body under a head thatís thin, but manages to hang around; a good trick, considering the oils in chile heat. Could only pick out a light pepper smell in this smoky bar. The palate is a little overwhelmed by a warm chile burn. Well, the American Wheat base can be a neutral flavor when fruits or spices are added anyway. The finish feels a little bit salty, for some reason. Of course, I like it, but will anyone else? Better find out now, because Iím told the next barrel will have more chiles in it.
