On tap at 1702. Pours light copper with very thin head. Aroma of lighy malt and green veg. Flavor has some upfront hops and veg green chile. Just a hint of lingering heat on the finish after about a minute. Great beer to show the chile light enough but motocable. Very nice.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Honey brown, with a small skiff floating on top. I normally hate me a chilli beer but this seems to be working for me. Aroma is sweet candied peach with a hidden pepper spice. Bubble gum really started to dominate the aroma the longer it sat in my glass. Taste is pretty much the same but way more of that sweet bubble gum hop comes through. The chillies build on your pallett the more you drink but never gets spicy. Yep cedar is noticeable. Not my favorite beer but best chilli beer by a long shot.

Bottle. Bright fruity aroma. Fruity taste with spice, bitterness, but no heat from the chilis. Quite sweet.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is spicey hops, chili, citrus hops, clove and lemon grass. Taste is a mild sweet malt body followed by a fairly well balanced hoppiness that is earthy and fairly citrus rich. Appearance is a clear gold with a medium frothy head that retains well.

cool, very unique brew. Never had this combination of flavors and aroma. Fruity hops and Belgian yeast aroma. Some bubble gum and light peppers. Weird but cool. Slightly sweet on the palate. Unexpected, but again, cool. The wood is light as is the peppers but they are there. Hops are more of a fruity boquet than bitter. This is insanely complex yet easy drinking. Nice job guys."

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Medium golden body, average white head that retains well. Yeasty, sweet pale malts, estery but where’s the heat? I detect negligable chili character here, and no indication of any cedar aging. Disappointing.

650ml brown bottle. Golden, a bit hazy. Frothy and sticky white cap. Nose has citrus, bread, pepper and a little fruitiness. Taste has bread, caramel, orange, yeast, wood, earth. Aftertaste has spice, orange peel, some bitterness. Not much heat. ABV stays well hidden. Interesting beer, not what I expected.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Visual: Pours clear copper-orange with a smallish head, thin sticky lacing, a thin layer of retention, several slow streams.
Nose: caramel malts, mild but apparent orange citrus (lvl-4)-pungency
Attack: light oily, crisp mouthfeel, bitter hops
Mid-palate: immediate pepper vegginess, light tingly, (lvl-6)-sweetness, (MAIN) caramel malts, orange
Finish: light spicy heat, soft citrus bitter hops, woody malty sweet finish.
Summary: Great full-bodied flavour, complexity and mouthfeel. I particularly dig the balanced citrus and heat elements.
