4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy (chill haze?) brown. Head is off white quickly dissipating reduced to a ring throughout the drink. Nose is peppery. Taste is medium malty sweetness revealing a Belgian yeast structure. Then the low bitterness hits followed by the heat of the habanero peppers at the back of the throat. Drink a few sips and the habanero pepperiness fills your mouth. The balance between all the elements is amazing. The habanero lingers in time but never eclipses the malty sweetnees and the yeast structure. They have produced a beer that is well balanced with very powerful elements. Congratulations! Tasted at the brewery and in a growler.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Drôle de bête cette bière, son arôme de sauce spaghetti épicés me laisse un peu songeur mais en même temps sa complexité est vraiment spéciale. La première gorgée est dominée par la morsure du chili mais aussitôt passée, la chaleur laisse place à un liquide franchement bien conçu. Le nectar d’agave et le seigle sont un match presque parfait un fois que les piments s’installent, ça me donne assurément des idées de brassins.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a slightly murky deep reddish brown color with a huge off white head that persists forever leaving moderate lace on the way down. Smells of spicy rye and peppery yeast phenols with a sweet lightly bready and caramel malt base with a hint of dark fruit. I can’t find any peppers in the nose, they must be subtle. The flavor is sweet and malty up front with spice and rye providing balance. I found the pepper and it comes in lightly in the middle and lingers long into the finish. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet spicy mouthfeel. Nice brew, I could have used a bit more pepper but I enjoyed it just the same.

on tap-offwhite-gold/amber. A-lt malt, hint of peppers. T-peppers as soon as it touches the tongue, lt malt. Heat stays there, and doesn’t go overboard, but it’s a sipper.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Pours a slightly hazy dand eep reddish brown with a large off-white head that’s leaving a fair lacing on the glass. Nose of rye, bread, caramel and yeast amoung with fruit notes. Sweet flavor with some subtile chili and at bit of bitterness into the finish. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft CO2. A nice brew but with more Habanero it would be even better. ★★★★
