Disclaimer: this is a VERY small-batch beer, from a very small-batch, craft/artisan brewery. For this reason, the intensity of heat varies WILDLY from bottle to bottle. If you love/know your craft beer, this is a sign that they are making this product with love and caution. As a company, I have loved watching NS learn through trial and error, and this process adds to the ride that NS takes you on, every time you open their products.
Boston: We have future legends on our hands.
Best chile beer on the market. Rich, amber color. Perfect head and lacing. Overwhelming nose. Great balance and mouthfeel.

If all things SPICE and FIRE are up your alley, then Viva Habanera is the whole damn boulevard. HEAT and HOP heads unite...stand up...your king has arrived, and he wears a crown of foam.
"LONG LIVE NIGHT SHIFT!! VIVA HABANERA!"
