3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Town Hall. Per menu and staff, jalapeno & poblano. Pours a standard hazy gold with a fluffy white head. Nose is fresh and very green. Some light bell pepper and crisp jalapeno notes, complimented by a soft yeast character. Some distant banana and clove come through, as well as bread. On taste, there is a distinct chile note, fresh and green. Some light heat accompannied by fruitiness. The hefe is a pretty solid beer but not too sure on the addition of the peppers. Okay.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[On-tap at Town Hall, thanks Guerde] Pours hazy orange with a small ring of off-white head. When cold, the aroma was fresh cut peppers, and nothing else. It was seriously like just smelling a cut pepper. After warming, some sweet banana esters made it through the pepper, making for a little more interest. The change in the taste was even greater, but followed a similar progression. Mainly just pepper and its accompanying heat, but after awhile it went from just eating a pepper to eating a banana and a pepper at the same time, with some wheat twang in there too. Average mouthfeel, with an obviously long finish. It was hard to finish the glass, but it was a very interesting beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Pours a slightly based amber color with zero head. Spicy chipotle aroma with a touch of smoke. Surpisingly sweet with an underlying heat from the chilis. Medium mouthfeel. The sweetness of this beer kind of throws it off. I would have prefered less sweetness and more heat in a chili beer. It’s like drinking a spicy banana! Not terrible if you are looking for just a touch of spice. 5oz is for sure enough of his one.
