holy sour chili beer! the perplexity of this beer starts with aroma and ends about 5 minutes after you finish your last drink. the appearance is a golden hue with minimum white head. the head settles out to a weird flocculation partially due to the bret n chili. the aroma is mostly brett and strong super citrus. the taste is a whole new ballgame. its initially like a traditional wheat/saison hybrid (session-able/ coriander/ peach) then it its touches on the side palette with bret and spunk. it hits the back of the throat with huge chili flavor. the worst. the worst part about this beer is when it gets room temp... its better with more enticing flavor. this is one i look forward to having this around during the summer time to grill with.

I was definitely a big fan of this beer. It poured very crisp, clean and clear and the aroma eminating out of the tulip glass was a blast of citrus goodness that made my mouth start watering. The taste was right in line with the citrus but slowly evolved with heat and the mouthfeel was so effervescent and finished clean with the lingering slight burn of the peppers. Loved it, finished it before I knew it, want another one.

one of the most unique beers ever. a low alcohol sour beer, blonde in color with a splotchy white head, with african chili peppers as hot as habanero. the nose on this is just amazing, bright citrus notes after the intense tartness and lactic sourness back off. mouth watering fruits, pears and peaches, and very little clue of the peppers at all. the flavor starts like a neat blonde sour, maybe sour mashed, acidic but not caustic, soft in feel and very light on the grain front. next comes a strong wave of citrus fruit, followed immediately by an slowly escalating heat that warms the throat and tongue after the swallow but never gets too hot. its a brilliant showcase of this peppers flavors without detracting from the beer with a stomach wrenching heat. finish is long and warm without being too much at all. i can hold the beer in my mouth and taste it for 30 seconds if i want to, but the peppery heat doesn't come on until i swallow it. very light body on this, and plenty of sour. my first chili sour beer i think, and its a major success. some of the best upright beer I've had for sure, and something that demands food pairings of the most interesting sort. so cool.
