Notes: "Oddly refreshing" is really the only way to describe this unique brew, which is dry-peppered with 4 types of hot peppers, coriander, salt and lemongrass. We know, we know...Sounds overwhelming, right? But no! The ingredients harmonize subtly, crafting something akin to a light, tart lemonade...With a Thai soup taste. Don't believe it? Let the mind blowing begin!

12oz can poured into a pint glass. Extremely light, crisp and refreshing. Citrus and faint spiciness from the peppers are nice notes in the nose and taste but neither overpowering.

a peppered up gose with some lemongrass in there too, pretty interesting beer here, and oddly not too hot. gose i think lends itself particularly well to these types of flavor additions, and the base beer here is very good, clean on the sourness, not too acidic, and fresh wheaty on the malt without being too weighty. very nice. the lemongrass for me is the most obvious element in the nose, some citrus from the flesh of the peppers maybe, but it sure doesnt smell hot or anything. fragrant toasted coriander in here as well, clean lacto sourness. the flavor starts mellow, a tea-like element, then the fresh muddled lemongrass, bright and nice with the salt and acid. the peppers come on later, not too hot, but bringing a little heat on the swallow. its more flavor than anything though, and it actually works. im not sure i would call it refreshing, but the flavors work really well together, and this is something quite unique as they go. an enjoyable beer, one of the only peppers beers ive had this year that i would drink a whole one of. clever and well executed, well ahead of expectations!

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. can into a J. Wakefield OG teku glass.

A: Very hazy light gold, with a two-finger white head that fades quickly and a good amount of visible carbonation.

S: Peppery heat meets salinity on top of some lemony citric acid and a touch of tartness. Pretty nice here for a pepper beer.

T: Peppers (jalapeno, chili, dried flakes) and moderate tartness. Lemon citric, coriander, and some salt. A touch of earthy musty funk over the light cracker malts. It finishes with a rush of hot pepper flavor, though only a mild punch of capsaicin heat and some savory saltiness - though the peppers linger longer.

M: Light body, good carbonation and minimal alcohol presence.

O: An interesting beer…the pepper flavors come through big without a ton of heat to overwhelm the beer. Still, the peppers do mask some of the nuance of the gose style. This is nothing I'd reach for often, but still interesting and I think very well executed.
NOTE: I think, if rated purely to personal preference, my rating would be a notch or two lower than the scores given.

Drank a glass at the brewpub and bought a 4 pack to go, which is what I am reviewing now.

Look: Hazy golden yellow sunshine like body with an immediate 1 fingers worth of head which disappeared quickly.
No lacing left in the glass.

Smell: Plenty of pepper aromas up front and some grains along with lacto sourness.

Taste: Peppers up front, definitely peppers! But not an overwhelming amount; some citrus shows through along with some sour tartness; just enough salinity to make it refreshing.

Feel: Light mouth feel, but the peppers show themselves at the back of the throat with a little amount of burn.

Overall: Really love this beer! An exciting new take on the Gose style! Easy to drink, depth from the pepper additions and refreshing from the saltiness. Definitely picking more of this up next time I'm at the brewpub or if I see it in distribution.
