COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Last year we added some fatali peppers to an oak barrel of Four, lending it a fruity flavor and some heat as well. We enjoyed that batch quite a bit and plan to do a blend of three barrels this go round, all of which were brewed at different times ranging from April 2009 to just a month ago (December 2010). The barrels also have different yeasts and bacteria in them as well which should make for a pretty complex profile.

leems (406) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 11, 2011
Bottle Orangish yellow pour with a thin white head. Aroma is is Brett, peach pits, and lemon. Flavor is more lemon, still brett, a little bitter stone fruit kind of thing, nice light sourness. Long light sour finish. The peppers fade in and out, they hit mid palate and then real late in the finish on the lips and cause a light warming effect on the tongue. Darn good for a light beer.

pushkinwow (2006) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 31, 2014
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.

harrymel (1502) - Spokane, Washington, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Dis be a 2013 bottle. Pours a crystal yellow with a glass surface. Smells tart, some funk, some skunk, a touch of bell pepper and lemons. Flavor is a bit more tame with some tart, some grain and corn, some mild funky manure. Thin bodied with sharp, tight hi carb and a dry finish. Nice beer. Nothing special from this bottle, but pleasant.

bytemesis (3151) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle from last year (2013). Pours crystal clear pale orange golden, medium creamy off-white head, dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is tart lemon, oak and a bit of funkiness. Flavor is white whine, oak, light sweet and light plus tart. Pepper spice comes on mid swallow and builds to a pleasant, not overwhelming, heat level. Spiciness lingers to the far finish. Lightish body, medium carbonation. I really really like this beer. Why did I not buy more???

Steve_0 (2651) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2014
Bottle at home. Pour is clear golden with a small white head and decent lacing. Lavender, biscuit, hibiscus, straw, pepper, heavy sweetness - which I think I’m picking up from the peppers - vanilla, and dough in the aroma. Taste is sweet peppers - really reminds me of a nice habanero sauce - lemon peel, lactic, oakiness, grassy, vanilla, yogurt, and ginger with some heat on the backend leading to a lightly tart finish. Light body with medium carbonation. The integration of the peppers in this one was done well and not really sour at all. . .much more of a saison to me. Cool beer.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - APR 4, 2014
Bottle. Current release, only a couple months old. Light, hazy, golden, yellow. Awesome, aromatic aromas of fresh ginger, lemon, lime and probably capsicum. Kinda reminiscent of a Sprite or 7up in some ways. Perfect IMO. Mouthfeel is full, yet light and refreshing, with a mild-medium sour tartness that highlights the spice perfectly. Similar flavors of spicy ginger, lemon, lime, and buttery oak, are contrasted by a long, lingering spicy finish. I can't define a "chili flavor", though there is definitely capsicum in this beer, because it definitely cleared out my sinuses, warmed my face and warmed my belly. A very unique beer in that regard. You definitely need to enjoy sour beer and "spicy things" in order to even consider drinking this beer. I love it! I will definitely be buying more of this next time I see it. Wow! Delicious! --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...
