a: Shared with threee others. My three ounces poured into an amber juiice glass which may have distorted the color. Appeared a deep orange with a half finger head.

s: Mildly citrus.

t: Citrus at first, but then the pepper registers and overwhelms, leaving a burning sensation in the back of the throat.

m: Medium with notable carbonation, but that pepper blast keeps any enjoyment from sipping at a minimum.

o: Interesting concept: a beer that is so spicy hot it makes you want to drink more beer, but it does not help. After that, the Curious Traveler Shandy I tried, a style I usually do not like, was a welcome relief.

Give Shorts credit for something unusual and creative. Might appeal to those who like spicy spicy and more spicy. But for me it was not nicie.

Fantastic beer. Wheat-colored, light-bodied and bubbly. The peppercorn flavor is prominent but not overly intense. Wonderful aftertaste. I usually don't like spiced wheat beers and I really dig this guy. Highly recommended. I'm on my second as I write this review and I feel number three on the way.
