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.

Beerman6686 (6502) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2016
Poured a hazy golden with a white head. Aroma was oaky, brett, light acid, lemony and grainy, no sign of peppers. Flavor similar except a big surprise burn in the throat. A really unique and innovative beer.

nuplastikk (5911) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 7, 2016
Sample from a 750ml bottle c/o JTClockwork, thanks! Filtered tan-orange body. Thin, glass rimming head. Quite a unique beer. The chilis really stand out, the sour is more underneath, but you still get that nice clean base. Really memorable, a fun one to try. Almost has a liqueur feel. The heat sticks around.

joeneugs (6105) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 4, 2016
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.

barn0216 (537) - California, USA - JUN 23, 2015
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.

Oakes (16128) - 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.

djd07 (12608) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 21, 2015
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.

fiulijn (19824) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 30, 2015
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 Im not really convinced by the mix sour-hot.
