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.

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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Iowa’s best grocery store. Pour is cloudy, light orange with a small white head. Nose is a mix of citrus and barnyard. Taste is immediately sour then some heat from the peppers while my mouth is still puckered. Whoa, does this do a number on my throat. Between the heat and the acid, it is a touch much initially. Interesting for sure. Not a beer I would want that much more of.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Straw golden with a big fizzy white had, aromas of citrus, funk, no sense of chili. Taste is nicely tart lemon, citrus, and then a really slow burning chili heat. The heat is not overwhelming, is really nicely accenting the beer. One is the better chili beer no doubt

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from CANBIF 2014. Somewhat clear mild amber with a nice white head film. Starts iff with brett, farm, high carbonation, mild body, chilli hits you more on the finish and coats the palate with a nice slow heat as things dry out and there is a bit of sugar to make it easier to bear, also some tartness, tasty.

Bottle share from Ferris, thanks man! Clear yellow pour, nice white head. Aroma, yeaaaa, lots of brett funk, oak I don’t really get peppers but Ferris swears I will pooping hot sauce tomorrow. Taste, brett funk up front, light citrus and whoop there it is, spicy meat balls, it burns but not in a bad way. This is some kind of beer, I thought it worked, others thought it didn’t guess I like spice’n’Brett.
