Overall nice beer full of fruit and spice.

Looks slightly murky , that's a plus for me as I like unfiltered beer. Smells of raspberry and vegetal smelling habaneros. The taste overall is slightly sweet with a touch of tartness and a healthy dose of low heat peppers.

On draft, pours a cloudy light brown with dark red hues. Not much carbonation, very still.

The smell is sweet at first, raspberries, corn syrup, but then out of nowhere the chilies come out, giving you the full spice. It reminds me of what sweet & sour chicken smells like.

The flavor is more mellow than the smell leads you to believe. Fruity, with faint pepper and chilies. It isn't super hot and doesn't burn your throat, a little fruity finish. Overall, I wanted to hate it, but it isn't a terrible chilies beer.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Arrives with a a nice head capping the tawny liquid; leaves some stringy lace behind

Smell: Raspberries, with both a sweet and tart edge; a bit of a toasted brown bread character

Taste: Toasted brown bread with raspberry jam; sweet and tart at the same time; finishes with some heat; not really hot like a habanero but definitely warming on the palate

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: More interesting than I was expecting as the tartness of the raspberry and the restrained heat from the peppers won me over

Thanks to Callmecoon for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

Pours a murky orange-brown with a foamy beige head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is of malt, corn tortilla, raspberry, and chile pepper aromas. Taste is much the same with raspberry and chile flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of pepper heat on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with an interesting balance between sweet and spice.
