COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A malty red ale that pops with pleasantly fruity undertones, chock full of whole raspberries and just enough habanero peppers to create a pleasant tingle in your throat. You’ve got sweet, fruity, caramel-y, spicy all in one package - it’s like jam for your jelly, baby.

Tap at Redlight. Reddish brown pour with a thick fluffy off white head. Initial aroma is big peppery burn and after a couple of swirls fruit notes start popping out. Clean smooth slightly sweet malt with big pepper burn on the finish. Pepper is there but not rendering undrinkable. Good.

chinchill (2146) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2014
On tap at the Funky Buddha Brewery. Red-amber body. Excellent clarity; weak head; no lacing. Sweet and hot: probably excellent choice to accompany under-spiced meats and some other foods. Sweet and hot work well together. I kept expecting to tire of this but didn’t. Natural raspberry flavor similar to jam. Moderate heat but limited pepper flavor.

Fritz123 (1123) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - NOV 17, 2014
Had at Boca Wine and Food Fest. Pours a reddish raspberry with a small head. Aroma is raspberries, blackberries, hot pepper, and red popcycles. The taste is fruity raspberries, blackberries, subtle habanero, and sweet syrups. I don’t usually like pepper beers but this one is subtle. Light body, easy to drink. Low carb.

HonusWagner (1630) - Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2014
The flavors are there, nice raspberry jamminess, really aggressive habanero. Too aggressive. This beer fucking hurts to drink. Way too spicy for me, and I’ve done several ghost pepper challenges. No thanks.

4oz pour at Churchkey DC pours a very murky, ruddy amber with a creamy ring of white head. Nose has a bunch of sriracha and raspberry, some sweet and sour sauce, hot sauce and apples. Flavor is like... sriracha, grapes, apple notes, some roasted red pepper, a little red pepper jelly. Finishes lightly acidic, lightly peppery. Kind of cool.

radagast83 (5086) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Draft at Churchkey during DC Craft Beer Week. Poured a clear ruby red color with a small off-white head. Aroma was some raspberries, with some hot pepper skins. Flavor was hot habanero, with some raspberries. Heat comes through, but is pretty enjoyable. Very tasty and more subtle than many chile beers.

Travlr (13450) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Draft at Churchkey. Murky brown color. Beautiful aroma of forest berry medley. Taste is tart berries, pepper flesh and light head. I didn’t think this combo would work, but it sure does.

solidfunk (4493) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Lots of evident habanero here with a good raspberry body. Finishes spicy and tangy. Pours clear maroon. Average carbonation. Thanks to radagast83 for a taste of this at the tap feature event at Churchkey.

On draft at Churchkey during DC Beer Week. Pours a clear gold with an off white head. Aroma of jalapenos. Flavors of raspberry and chili. Amazingly good combination.

En fût au Brass Tap de Pembroke Pines. Une bière ambrée et son col mousseux. Un nez de framboise et de malts roux dans lequel s’installe des parfums délicats de piments et de poivrons. Un goût qui m’impressionne, à la fois piquant et à la fois doucement fruitée. Décidément, cette association qui fonctionne à merveille me plaît beaucoup. En bouche, le liquide montre un corps de moyenne densité avec une texture huileuse et un pétillement actif. En finale, le fruit sucré et finement acidulé ouvre la porte à des notes poivrées qui chauffent mes papilles. Unique. Facile à boire. Je suis un fan des expériences travaillées.
