2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not sure why this isn’t 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. It’s an interesting one, not sure if I’ll be going out of my way to get this again.

Just the right amount of spice from the peppers and fruit sweet. Great balance with beer and additives. Tap

Nice and spicy with a little funk, almost like they could pull this off as a jalapeno saison, in a good way. Nice picnic beer. Reminder... you do get little heat on this one.

sample at EBF, hmmm, a strawbeery jalapeno brown ale. Well it was executed well, and i like spice, was a brown ale the best base to pick? probably not, but the sweet spicy combo did very well. Interesting beer,

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Maybe best described as too complicated recipe of a beer. Sweetness and spice evident in the aftertaste. Some caramel hops only Brown Ale in name.

On tap at the Prism Tasting room. Poured a cloudy brown color with a small sized off white head. Jalapeno was there but subtle. Some berries, but more of a fruitiness with some roast.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft sample at Manahawkin Spirits. Pours a hazy amber/brown color with a foamy off white head. Aroma of burnt sugar, toasted malt, fresh jalapeños, and a hint of artificial strawberry. Taste of tart strawberry, caramel malt, and a prominent jalapeño flavor without the burn.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Canal’s. 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 jalapeño notes and light brown sugar. Taste is well balanced, caramel malts, strawberry jam, jalapeño spice that lingers on the back end with a light touch of bitterness on the finish. Different but I kind of like it.
