Bottle at brewery. Aroma: kinda like gummy bears. Appearance: deep amber color but no head. Taste: the gummy bear flavor remains up front, ends in a mild/hot spice. Palate: a little thin but very long finish. Overall: interesting and worth a try. Goes well with a burger.

An interesting venture from a brewery I would never have expected to produce a beer like this. Nice orangecopper color with a thin white head. Peppery and spicy, with green notes and crisply vegetal (thatís not a criticism necessarily) although thereís not much heat. I liked it more than I thought I would but itís still a gimmick at best.

Randomly abandoned beer found in the back of my fridge, in all likelihood a forgotten refugee from a RateBeer gathering. Poured a medium amber, slight head, clear. Aroma was chili pepper, a whisp of smoke, and caramel accented malts. Flavor matched. Peppers were very present, and brought a lingering but not abrasive heat. Pretty well done from a BJCP perspective, but this ainít the BJCP, and this just wasnít my thing.

Bottle. Nice hazy gold with minimal head. Malty and spicy and a chocolate aroma I didn't expect. Hotter than I'd like but drinkable.

This ale "jumped the shark" for pepper aroma and taste! It was hot---but still the best pepper brew that I have ever tried. Cloudy amber color with solid body. Label says 6.8% ABV and 90 IBU.

Poured from 12oz bottle I got in Grand Rapids. Orange with white fluffy head and cloudy. Smell is wheat and heat. Nice balance of hops, peppers, and Belgium wheat. Not usually a pepper beer guy - but they pulled this one off. Will have again

12 oz bottle. Pours a hazed light amber with a slightly off-white head. Definitely a chili pepper aroma with a hint of sweetness. Taste is pretty much of chili pepper, slight malty background. Well, itís as described, but I canít say itís something I really like in liquid form. I think I was expecting/hoping the pepper would be one component among several rather than the whole thing. First one Iíve poured out in a heck of a long time. I can tell this is well-crafted with clean flavors, but itís just not a drink for me.

Nice ale, medium malts, low spice, lots of pepper flavor. I think it could be worked on, maybe a mango version.

Bottle, pours a hazy amber with white head. Aroma is of peppers, fresh salsa. Taste of hot peppers and spice, good amount of heat in the finish. Very interesting beer.
