Balloon snifter at Founder’s on 5/17/14. Clear amber in color with a medium off-white head. Aroma of bourbon, honey and fruit. Didn’t detect much pepper, but I’d been drinking pretty aggressively flavored beers most of the day. Flavor of bourbon and honey with some caramel and bit of pepper spice in the finish.

wow, what a surprise. tasted sample on tap at founders brewery. Bend of previous hungarian wax and poblano spite and then barrel aged. complex flavors and interesting. obviously bourbon barrel aged flavor with very slight pepper blend of spicy and sweet.

Draft to taster at Founders. Looks decent; a transparent gold with white lacing. Smells and tastes of oak and mild poblano with a solid mouthfeel. Okay.

On tap at Founders brewpub, pours a clear golden amber with a slight pepper aroma, the flavor is actually a little sweeter than I expected, tasted more like green peppers than anything, even has some fruit notes that come through in the finish, the most mild out of all the Spites.

Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 29, 2011
Draft at Founders. Translucent dull coppery body, thin ring of off-white carbonation. The nose delivers a punch of vegetal pepper heat that just threatens to singe the nostrils. The body is mostly dull oak, vanilla and pepper, not flat, but lifeless. Heat picks up after several sips and leaves a persistent warmth in the chest. As pepper beers go, this is not bad.

Tap @ Founders. Clear, red orange appearance with an off white head. Caramel, toffee aroma with a fairly potent green chili smell. Mild vegetal, caramel malty, a touch spicy, chili flavor.
