Enjoyed (?) on-tap @ the Minneapolis Town Hall Brewery in Minneapolis, MN in a $9 Flight tasting. Tapped from the Clock Tower tap handle but not sure of the logo or tap handle style (moved into pool room) into a 10oz Short Stange Glass.
Aroma- Strong chilis from the beginning. Overpowers everything and leaves nothing left to hint at... Not even a smoky aroma!
Appearance- Received with no head at all but I'm not worried about it. Has lemon color body and very clear. No lacing left afterwards.
Flavor- Strongest spice and chili taste. Can't handle this as a Hefe! Wheres the lemon twist, the grains, the malt, the sweetness, the dry finish, the... Weak..
Mouthfeel- Light-Medium Bodied, Carbonation tough to determine, and has tons of spice and chili afterwards.
Overall Impression- Very tough to drink but GLAD it was my last of the night... Killed my palate.. Tt would have been a greeat chili beer I think but not a Hefe. Can't recommend this but if you are to sample, have this as your last brew of the night!

A: cloudy amber/golden color with nearly no head.
S: chile, maybe some smoke.
T: chile, that's it.
M: a little lacking in carbonation, but that might make this even worse, so the smoothness may balance it.
O: gross. Never again. Why would they do this?

Served in a goblet, a hazy straw yellow color with a moderate head of light colored foam.
Smells of grilled pepper. Quite smokey with a touch of wheat and spice.
The taste is phenomenal. They used Poblanos in this which are probably my favorite pepper. So much flavor. This tastes just like a grilled green poblano. Very smokey, green and delivers some moderate pepper heat in the back of the throat. A nice smoke flavor in the finish.
Very smooth, but dry. Nice carbonation feel. A light body.
It's not very often that you run across a beer that stands out from the crowd in a huge way. This one does that. This probably is not a beer for everyone as indicated in previous reviews, but it really worked for me. I could drink a couple of these with ease. Wish it were in growlers, because it would be amazing with some mexican food.

This beer is the Chili infused version of the Smoked hefe. This is not to be confused for the Chili-hefe which is the chili infused version of the hefe.
Pours a light white head. Color is a hazed dark golden orange.
Aroma: Massive amount of chilis. Huge spices. A bit of smokey malts. No hefe flavors here at all. Very unique. Smells like bazooka joe bubblegum.
Taste: Some spices mixed with the chile pepper spiciness. Bananas and cloves with a little malt showing. Very hot. Very spiced. The smokey flavors blend in with the chilies.
Mouthfeel: Dry and spiced. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends hot.
Overall, a very unique beer. I couldn't drink much of this. However, it did have some awesome flavors. Worth a try if you get a chance.
