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.

Draft @ Starbelly, San Francisco, CA. Pours a hazy yellow color with a small white head. Has a fruity malty woody spicy chili aroma. Fruity malty sour tart funky spicy chili flavor with hints of citrus. Has a fruity sour spicy warming chili finish.

Bottle. Cloudy pale yellow color, fluffy white head. Aroma of lightly sour peach, pear. Taste is softly sour grapefruit, stone fruits. Tangy finish.

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.

750mL bottle, pours hazy golden orange with a small head. Oak barrels jump out the most on the nose, with sour fruits and yeast. Flavour beings with tropical fruits and citrus, with the sourness kicking in in the middle, with a HUGE spice kick at the end. Very interesting progression on the palate, but I’m not a fan of these spicy pepper-induced beers.

Oakes (17684) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 7, 2015
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.

jtclockwork (16599) - , New Jersey, USA - APR 2, 2012
Bottle shared at my house. Pours orange with off white head. Nose/taste of chili pepper, tart fruits, lemon, funk, herbs and spices. Finishes with some sour lemon funk and mild chili pepper heat. Medium body. Odd and interesting use of chili peppers - well executed.

brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 7, 2011
A: Pours a cloudy straw color with a large white head that settles down to a thin layer and leaves some nice lacing. S: Initially this pretty much just smells like the regular Four with a lot of lemon juice and lactobacillus. A touch of fruitiness, especially citrus, but then the peppers start to creep in and give off a spiciness and earthiness that is quite well balanced. T: The tartness of the beer starts things off and is quite pleasing. The pepper flavor seems really subtle and for the most part I pick up pale malts and just a nice earthiness from the peppers. A few seconds after taking a sip, however, the peppers give off a nice heat that lingers in the back of the throat. M: The body is light to medium with a moderate to high carbonation. D: Not always the biggest chili beer fan, but the peppers played well with the tartness of the beer and were not overdone.

Ferris (15304) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 11, 2013
Bottle - Sour funk, chili, lemon and oak. Cloudy orange with no head. Light refreshing, sour but nicely balanced. Pepper heat is there a very nice contrast. I really like this.

bhensonb (15207) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Capped 750 from Malt & Vine. Pours light hazy gold with a transient white head. Aroma of light fruit. Citrus. Med minus body. Flavor is lime with chilies. The chili accumulates. Capsaicin reaction. Works up on ya. It’s really good.

Ratman197 (14842) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - FEB 20, 2014
750 ml bottle poured a hazy yellow with a small lasting creamy white head. Aromas of barnyard, straw, lemon zest and light fatali peppers. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry tart warming finish. Flavors of straw, lemon zest, barnyard funk and fatali peppers with a crisp dry tart warming finish.
