3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, gushed like crazy. Hazy golden-orange pour with fluffy white head, aroma brought notes of lime juice, lemon zest, chilis, earth, hints of biscuit, bread, almost a slight tequila like note with some oak, touch of juicy fruit as well, interesting. Taste is as expected, some fruit, earth, oak, spice, yeast into some earthy pepper, lime, zesty citrus with a hint of grain, slightly tart finishing with some chilis, heat, no vegetal note, tart and spicy. Odd, but kind of grew on me towards the end. I however wouldn’t seek this out specifically again.

750ml Bottle shared at home - Smells like freshly sliced apples, lime zest, sweet and sour sauce, earthy peppers, and yeast, wow. Flavors are lively, citrus and stone fruit finish with the perfect heat and tartness. A soured saison with a unique blend of barrels and chills, outstanding.

Shared from a 750ml at Beer Mongers. Ok so yeah I know, sour barrel-aged chili beer isn’t everyone’s forte. Well it is mine. Smells like stone fruit, chinese food, vines and earth and ends in chilies. This thing is so bright on the palate! Hot and sour sauce through and through, tart and spicey, tons of apricots and peaches. I freaking loved this! If weird beers or chili beers are your thing, definitely hunt this sucker down.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the Brewery. Pours a clear copper color with a large white head. The aroma is only light pepper, but big lemon zest, some wood. The flavor is more oranges and lemons, slight sourness, very tart and zesty, but the finish hits you hard with burning heat. Not really a ton of pepper flavor, more heat in the back of you throat. Good. Not super drinkable, but that’s OK.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy golden with a thin white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma feels really fresh, almost mint-like. Taste is citrusy/acid and tart with a hot chili aftertaste. I didn’t think it was over the top, though. It made for a fun drink, one that I would only consume in small quantities (4oz or so). Body is light and it is quenching to some extent. Overall it might have been a little too pepper heavy but I still enjoyed it more than the #5 and #6.
