COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rye ale brewed with agave nectar and aged on habanero peppers ABV: 7.0% Brewed with rye malts that bring their own natural spice, this invigorating cerveza gets its zesty kick and peppery flavor from habanero peppers that we add after fermentation. Agave nectar, produced in Mexico, helps to sweeten and lighten the body, while our Belgian house yeast strain tempers the beer’s fiery disposition.

Bottle thanks to bleeps. Pours a ruby red cloudy, white head. Aroma of Belgium yeast and malt sweetness. Taste is sweet, smooth, then heat takes over in the backebd. Good balance, lives to the name. Prob best spice beer I’ve had.

Bottle thanks to Will! Pours a cloudy orange with thick white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is habanero peppers, pepper, and fruit. Medium mouthfeel with agave, peppers, and fruit. Not too much heat, easy to drink, very good.

markwise (4501) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Bottle courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Cheers, John! Pours a hazy brown-amber with a beige head. Nose is big agave syrup- herbal/ earthy syrup sweetness followed by some fruity quality, and maybe some earthy peppers. Flavor starts off sweet then progresses to drier from agave to a bit of rye and then the assertive peppers kick in- right to the throat and burn for a little bit. One of the more assertive and aggressive pepper beers I’ve tried.Light to medium in body with ephemeral sweetness and lingering habanero burn.

crazyvin (1963) - New York, USA - JAN 31, 2014
A slightly opaque dark amber body with a beige head that had great retention and nice lace. Aroma had a nice peppery rye presence initially. There was a hint of bitter hops and a slight hint if hot peppers. No real sense if aguve. Flavor was good. The spice note was restrained. It complemented the rye malts. Although there was a nice presence of hops they were not a main player. There was a slight sweetness in the finish which I can only assume is the aguve nectar.

WillRunForBeer (727) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Tap at the source. Pours amber brown with an off white head. Smells of malt and green vegetables. Flavor is caramel malt, then peppery spice, then cooling sweet. Leaves a little hotness in the finish. Does well at what it is, but I wouldn’t want to sit down with a full pint.

Concealer (808) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Tap. Clear copper brown with a foamy beige hear. Aromas of vegetables, spicy pepper, and light malt. Flavor is the same, the spice kick is upfront with a malty vegetable finish. Medium bodied, lingering heat.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Draft at brewery. Orangey amber with a nice off-white head. Holy habaneros, batman. Hard to make out the other elements (some toasted malt, caramel, honeyish) with the intense chili spice overwhelming this. The fruitiness of the habanero does complement the esters from the yeast nicely. But for me, this was just a sampler, not a sipper. Too unbalanced.

Pours brown shot through with amber. Pillowy head. Pretty beer. Sweet on the tongue. Burning note creeps up the back of the throat. Very pleasant.
