bomber into a FW tulip 6/21/13 bottling date.

pours a golden color with an inch white head with a lot of bubbles. no lacing. smell is quite sweet with the apricots but you can tell there is a bit of heat with it too. taste starts out tart like a berliner then the apricots become very prevalent and it finishes with a slight heat the increases the more you drink the bottle. this is excellent and just what it promises! light bodied with light carbonation.

overall a superb chili/fruit mixed beer. wow a new favorite of mine.

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.
