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.

4 oz pour on draft at ChurchKey for the Cigar City & Funky Buddha SAVOR event. Murky brown with light off-white head. Aromas of peppers mostly. Taste of peppers and malt. Medium-light body with a dry and spicy finish.

Pours ruby/garnet in color. Has an off white head with low retention. Smells of sweet raspberries. Initial taste is very raspberry forward and fairly sweet. There is definitely a hint of peppers hiding behind the sweetness. Finishes crisp and refreshing with a slow warming that builds the more you drink.

Draft... Pours clear, dark and ruby with a small, wispy, off-white head. The nose is watered down, but does furnish a truckload of fresh raspberries. Medium to full-bodied and creamy with stinging carbonation. The flavor is fruity, loaded with raspberries, mildly tart and full of toasty malts. No habanero flavor, but the heat kicks in during the lengthy, warming finish. Yeah. Fire in the freakin’ hole. My tongue, throat and belly feel the heat. Very nice.

Draft, a cool experiment that worked well, good spicy flavors, fruit beer background, but I enjoy sweet and spicy food

Weezel (238) - Florida, USA - JAN 3, 2015
On tap at Redlight Redlight. Beautiful deep red pour with minimal head. Sweet raspberries on the nose with some pepper undertones. The taste is amazing, with huge raspberry flavor up front, followed by some sweet malt that transitions to the habaneros perfectly. Warming sensation on the finish but not overpowering. Excellent.

dchmela (2819) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 26, 2014
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 (2928) - 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 (1285) - 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.
