3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at RBWG. It pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma is super lemony with a touch of orange. Not much pepper. The flavor is nice and tart with a little spicy heat that creeps up on you. A little funk and pleasant vanilla barrel notes in the finish. Very tart and spicy. Interesting.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly hazy yellow. Fruity sour aroma. Similar profile plus peppers and heat. Just the right amount. Interesting but not something to drink a lot of.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Legacy. Cloudy tan, no head. This has the usual tart upright stuff, and a shot of heat from the chile. Fun base beer, tart and tasty. Not sure how the chile goes with it.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle thanks to Daniel. Pours a cloudy orange with a small frothy off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong chili peppers, wheat, and funk. Medium mouth with light funk, citrus, wheat, with lingering heat, decent.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Metro Liquor, Victoria
Cloudy blond color with creamy head. Strong sour aroma, fruity, some peach and vinegar. Smooth mouthfeel, dry; very sour flavor, a bit fruity; then the chili pepper kicks in, increasing the sour feeling.
The general impression is quite fresh, but the result is chaotic, and the chili is too much. And I’m not really convinced by the mix sour-hot.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Lets go to the Jockey Box
Upper Deck Four Fingers Surprise!, shared by the jockey box, not in dining room, for make the taste!
Pours a hazy pale color with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is lemony and very funky it’s got some yogurt, some fruitiness (most particularly sour cherry) and a little mild malt character.
The flavor is tart and has a nice sour cherry character, some lemon rind, and a nice dosing of hot pepper that heats up pretty good in the finish.
Hot pepper sour beer, why the f not... sheesh.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
quite the different beast than Four even before the peppers get involved. Nice dry barrel brett and funk character not present in the original beer. The heat takes a while but is there on the back end and grows a little as the beer opens up. This was good enough to make me wonder why we don’t see more peppered sours.
