Sweet spicy aroma. Dark orange brownish body with a fluffy white head. Drinking this on tap at Brews Brothers. Interesting taste. Not my thing. Good Belgian sweetness, but the peppery spiciness hits you. I like spicy, but not really in beer. But, for a peppery beer, its not bad.

Cloudy orange pour with a frothy one-finger white head. Mild aroma of honey and light malt. Taste has a mild chili pepper flavor upfront. Not very spicy, though. Also has some wood, malt and mild citrus hop flavors. Medium bodied and creamy.

Bomber poured into a tulip glass. The color of dark reddish honey with a moderate amount of white head. Aroma is rather tart, vinous, and fruity (apricot, cherry, citrus), with a subtle undercurrent of caramel and pine resin. Indeed, this is a rather hoppy brew, dry grapefruit rind and pine needles on the palate, along with an array of interesting fruit flavors ... Cherry, raisin, and yes, chillies, although these register more as bell peppers rather than the hot stuff per se. A subtle heat does build over time. Body is quite light and well attenuated, a little caramel malt heft is apparent, and the carbonation is fairly high. Finishes dry and hoppy with an ongoing fruity note: Dried fruit roll up, woody understated pine bough, gooseberry, and a lingering wildflower honey sweetness. I was somehow expecting a bit more from such a vaunted duo of collaborators. More from the malts I suppose, more body, and less of a homogenized fruity character. Oh well. The chillies do come through in an understated albeit pleasant fashion.
