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.

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,

Échantillonné du Extreme beer fest 2014: Texture aqueuse avec les saveurs telle qu’annoncée. Les saveurs se présentent sous forme d’extraits même si c’est peut-être pas le cas.

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.

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. Didn’t get any of the strawberry in the flavor at all, which could have balanced the pepper if it was more notable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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; there’s almost no spice to it. Bell Pepper != Jalapeno. Interesting, but disappointing.
