Pours a murky golden color with an admirable, rocky white head that devolves into sporadic chunks of lacing as the beer recedes. Aroma smells richly of pepper, hops, yeast, and some light fruit. This combination actually works much more pleasantly together than one might expect. The pepper that was so prominent in the nose is even more so in the taste--almost distractingly so. There are some spices I can tolerate in abundance, but pepper is not one of them. The bottle touts tropical fruit as a main component of the flavor profile, and much to my surprise, there is an evident mango aspect to the taste. The mango is more noticeable initially, before it starts to get drowned out by the pepper and bitterness, but it's definitely there. There's also some of the funkiness typical of the style, and the 8% ABV is well concealed. The carbonation is nice and crisp, just how I like it, but that's not enough to redeem this beer overall. There's just too much pepper going on to give the rest of the elements a fair shake, though I do respect Boulevard for going big on flavor here, even if it's not quite too my liking.

This beer should be served at a slightly higher temprature than you would the normal lager beers. This allows the fruity flavors to come forward. There is also a slight hop aroma to this beer, and served cool, it is easier to notice. The main aroma are complex, some fruits and bananas, but also a spicy note. The taste is dry, you get some of the fruitiness. The body is very light. Easy to dring despite being 8.5 % ABV.
