Poured from a 650ml bottle. Pours a hazy yellow. An interesting nose of stone fruits, spice and honey. The taste follows suit with a nice dry fruitiness--peaches and apricots--followed by notes of hot peppers and a nice spicy pepper heat on the finish. A very interesting combination that is well-balanced and tasty. It's medium bodied and hearty and would pair well with food.

Appearance. Pours a hazy yellow gold with two fingers of white head.

Smell. Apricots, pungent hot peppers and a bit of sweet wheat.

Taste. Those spicy peppers I smelled without much heat, apricots and some wheat.

Mouthfeel. Medium-light body with medium+ carbontion.

Overall. The flavour of the peppers was a bit strong, but the mild heat was just right. Original for sure. I'd drink it again.

Bought this one on an impulse which almost never ends in a good thing, but wait.
From the freshness dated bomber into a standard pint glass results in a hazy yellow body with a small cap of foam, no lacing evident and no bubbles seen rising. mediocher heffe, not bad, just normal.
Aroma is , well a little strange, obviously a wheat beer with slight soapiness and grainy husk but with a slight tart note.
Taste is... well this is unique, starts out as a fairly dull heffe then a slight tartness creeps in, all nothing unusual, then. heat in the back of your mouth and throat. I love Habanero and Scotch bonnet peppers, this beer has captured the heat of those peppers perfectly. unlike Jalapenos or Serranos which have a slowly building level of heat the Chineeses variety of pepper is known for it's intense burn that doesn't linger forever.
Medium bodied with what can only be described as a very warming aftertaste this beer is a good choice for those of us that can handle capsicum.
If you think Tabasco sauce is too hot stay far far away, as for me, I'll have another.
