3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a cask conditioned version of Easy Street Wheat that was brewed with chilies and served at the 2011 Small Batch Festival.
Cloudy golden orange with hazy banana hues and a frothy two finger white head. Good retention, slow fade capto a lasting cap that leaves chinks of soapy lacing
Earthy aroma with zesty spice and yeast. Slightly chalky with spicy pepper but not much citrus or banana. chilies are light.
Medium bodied with lots of full bready yeast along with subtle citrus, spicy clove and zesty pepper. Dry pepper finish from chillies but not to strong lingers deep after the swallow.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap during Small Batch Revival 2011. Slightly hazy gold amber. Aroma of delicious roasted chilis and peppers. Spicy smells. Texture was oddly creamy, but whatever; it was a firkin, after all. Spicy, peppery taste reminiscent of jalapenos covered in cheese. Tasty, just not superb. A fun one-off.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Small Batch Revival. Released as a firkin a few times. Hazy orange-yellow appearance with an ivory head. Yeast, wheat, and an excellent spicy pepper aroma. A touch of pepper followed by a smooth yeasty American wheat flavor and finishes more with the spiciness characteristics of chili. Good call on the firkin!!
