3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a medium amber color with a boozy head. Aromas of slight cherry, slight fig, grass, and hint of pepper. Flavors of mild pepper, slight cherry, grass (dominate), faint cedar and corn. Taste mostly like a lager. Drank 2 months later than the best by date. Medium sweet. Just a hint of the chili in the finish but just to faint.

Liked this collaboration. Two well established breweries brewed a good tasting beer that has good color, taste and aroma. Chilis are apparent, but not overwhelming. Some citrus detected. Would seek out this beer in the future.

Pours pale gold orange color, semi clear with a huge beige head. Nose is cherries, bell peppers, strawberries, caramel. Body is medium with a very silky texture, and medium carbonation. Initial soft sweetness leads to a nice clean dry finish, with just light lingering fruit.

Pours light brown, minimal head. Aroma of herbs, floral hand soap, watermelon. Taste is soapy, flowery, not sure where the peppers come in, maybe slighltly in the finish. Maybe. The description is much better than the product.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured from bomber into pint glass. Massive head on a golden-to-brown color. Herbal hops aroma with not much else. Taste is bland and uninspiring. The Belgian yeast comes through as does some peppery hops. However, the peppers and the wood are practically nonexistent. I've had a great many of CCBs cedar aged beers before and this doesn't even come close. I've also has plenty of their pepper beers and this is also doesn't come close. If you gave this to someone and didn't tell them a description, they would just assume it's some run of the mill pale ale. Disappointing.

Aroma is nice and hoppy. Pours a golden brown with a healthy head into stemware from tap. Mouth feel is great and thin and bubbly. Taste is pepper forward with sweetness and some hops at the end. Really interesting brew

bottle - Pours hazy orange with a big off-white head. It smells of citrus and yeast. The flavor is of pale malt, yeast, and rather subtle peppers. It’s on the dry side with moderate bitterness at most. Interesting brew.
