Tap: Super cloudy, burnt copper & amber color with a fleeting, eggshell foam that settles quietly at the edges. Spicy heat & notable peppers in the aroma with light toast, sweet malt, & spicy chilies. It tastes like those Tabasco flavored Cheez-Its, haha. But something is strangely intriguing about it... I like it. Itís got a nice spiciness without being a palate scorcher, just a hint of crystal malt sweetness to act as an unobtrusive base. Certainly not something to get a deuce-deuce of, but itís actually pretty tasty.

Tasty pepper beer that comes thru with green chili pepper flavor but little or no heat. Would like it better if it brought some heat.

Draft at brewery, aroma is a touch peppery, and taste is similar, interesting beer, fairly light overall

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.

Kinz (3258) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - OCT 14, 2013
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
