Not sure why this isnít classed as a fruit or an herb/spice/vegetable, but to begin this has a vegetal aroma. It pours an opaque ruddy brown, with no head. The flavor is more jalapeno than strawberry, with a touch of heat in the finish. Not really able to detect much else besides the jalapeno flavor, very little roasted notes, and almost no sweetness. Itís an interesting one, not sure if Iíll be going out of my way to get this again.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Canalís. pours out a nice reddish hued brown color with a medium off white head with lots of carbonation. Aroma is of fresh strawberry jam, caramel, toffee, some earthy jalapeŮo notes and light brown sugar. Taste is well balanced, caramel malts, strawberry jam, jalapeŮo spice that lingers on the back end with a light touch of bitterness on the finish. Different but I kind of like it.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
The combination of jalepeno and strawberry was the closest flavor to freezer burn that I can contemplate. This beer was awful. Body was average, which made the hottness and bad flavor linger on the lips and tongue.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From notes: Poured hazy nut-brown, with a 3-finger light tan head. Aroma of jalapeno, with some sweet strawberry underneath. Body is medium and lightly oily. Lightly roasty, nutty flavor that gives way to some heat from the peppers. Didnít get any of the strawberry in the flavor at all, which could have balanced the pepper if it was more notable.

On tap. Pours a medium brown body color with a two finger of white head and decent lacing. Only thing to smell is the overpowering aroma of the peppers. The faint taste of fruit is there and gone, and quickly changes and finishes with the peppers. Medium bodied, and well carbonated

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Musty aroma. Taste is a very artificial berry flavor, slightly metallic with a rather unpleasant metal fruity aftertaste. I get a tiny hit of green pepper in the mix; thereís almost no spice to it. Bell Pepper != Jalapeno. Interesting, but disappointing.

Bottle at MFF compliments of Taylor, pours reddish purple with light head. Aromas of strawberry, green pepper, Belgian spice. Taste is peppers, dark fruits, plum, wood, and malt. One of the most interesting beers I have had from them but nothing I would try again.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by Taylor. Aroma is strawberry, overripe brown apple and red apple peel. Pours garbage brown with ugly green shades and a scattered head. Taste was ok with similar apple peel and strawberry taste. The jalepenos serve nothing but to give this a bitter unpleasant taste. There is no heat present. Real let down.

Bottle at the BNA 8 party at World Cafe Live Philadelphia
Huge over carbonation issues from the bottle pours mostly foam. Strawberry tartness light caramel malt and some jalapeno heat. Muddles flavors almost work together but Iím not sure if this is the way it was ment to taste or not.
