Style: Chili Beer IBU’S: 10 Hops – Willamette, Northern Brewer ABV 5% Availability: Only 100 cases bottled: To be released Thursday, May 5, 2011, Cinco de Mayo GFK is brewed with 6 zany peppers. Anaheim, Fresno, Jalapeno, Serrano, Habanero and Bhut Jolokia – Otherwise known as the Ghost Pepper. 200 times the heat of jalapenos, Bhut Jolokia are the hottest peppers in the world, a pepper so hot it can be weaponized. So hot that our brewers had to wear masks and gloves to cut them up. Aroma of smoked chillis fills the nose on first whiff, but don’t let it linger to long. Immediately on first taste GFK has a nice golden wheat flavor, but this is only for a fleeting moment before the temperature rises. Just hold on, the warmth of this beer will set in for a long spicy burn. There is only one finish on this beer – HEAT! Food Pairing: Ice-cream or milk, because that is all that is going to help you with this brew.

    Pours out a hazy bronze collar with a wisp of white head. The aroma is interesting sort of a mix of decaying vegetation & peppers. The mouthfeel is not what I expected. I expected it to be a lot hotter. Don't take me wrong it does sting a little on my lips and the back of the roof of my mouth. But it doesn't just totally wipe out my palate to the point where I can't taste it. To be honest after drinking the whole bottle. I am afraid to take a shit tomorrow!

    It's hard to rate something that is so obviously a novelty beer. No matter how much I might like it, and I do, I'm really not going to drink this on a regular basis. I can see myself replacing the lager in my chili recipe with this, or drinking it with tequila on Cinco de Mayo, but it's generally just a novelty. Pours hazy gold with a tall head that quickly dissolves into a lingering film of foam. Smells of pickled jalapeños, chipotles (smoked jalapeños), and dusty books. The initial flavor is mildly smoked chipotle, and then it begins to sting. Jalapeño, whether pickled or smoked, is the dominant flavor, and chiles are the bitterness of the brew. I happen to like this, but not enough to drink it regularly, and that knocks down the score a bit. The body is good. Refreshing, tingly, and-- not surprisingly-- instantly puts a fire in your belly without being boozy. This beer is going to be way too much for some folks but, given that it does contain ghost chiles, I was surprised by how mild and drinkable I did find it.

    Opaque dark yellow with no foam. Aroma is pepper, taste is like drinking Tabasco. Long lasting burning pepper, Tabasco taste. Never again. (Houston 201310)

    Bottle. A slightly hazy light bronze with a thin off white head body. A crazy pepper nose with some apparent heat. This pepper smell pretty much overwhelms everything else, but at least it smells fresh. Oh wow, this one is a big spicy bad boy. Just like the aroma, the heat just blows away everything else away in this otherwise thin brew. Behind, the heat, there is lightly sweet brew with notes of peanuts. Only to drink if you want the heat. I have had better pepper beers with more balance, this gimmick was obviously created just to overwhelm with spice.

    2nd or 3rd hottest beer I've ever had. you feel it in your gut, but it's not as palate destroying as a couple others. Decent pepper taste, though it becomes a bit much if you're having more than, say, 2 oz. I'd get again to share, but not a beer I'll drink often.

    Pours a very cloudy dark gold with almost no head. The peppers jump right out in the aroma and there is no let-up in the taste. Very one-dimensional--just a ton of spice, like drinking the juice from a jar of pickled jalapenos and habaneros. Splitting the bottle 4 ways was still too much.

    It pours an unassuming lazy hazy, light amber color with a small white head that fades really fast, leaving no lace. Aromas is akin to pickled peppers, some faint malt pokes though. Flavor is not bad, malts, smoke and peppers of course but the heat knocks you back a bit. Burning the mouth and all the way down, really heats you up. I split this with a buddy of mine, and it took some doing but i finished my half. Overall this delivers as advertised, its what you would expect. This would be great cooking in charro beans, or chili.

    bought at Specs, chugged for the RBSH2.. . smell was pepper skin, desert sand, and pain .. . huge kick in the throat, then my pipes, and then my stomach- this is intense.. . but with all that the actual pepper taste is nice, pure pepper .. . i am happy i got to try it but a novelty beer that i will be avoiding (unless for cooking!) in the future .. . . tiger, the wheels are off..

    this was too hot. Couldn't finish it. But here's what I was about to note: A crytalline golden-orange colored beer. A small soapy white head rises briefly. There's no lacing. And everything about this beer is peppers. Might actually be a good ingredient in making chili. But to drink? Not for me.

    12oz bottle. Pours a clear straw gold with a very small white head that quickly goes the a slight collar.

    The aroma is a little sweet malt and chili peppers. It's more subdued than expected.

    The flavor is a slight touch of sweet malt quickly dominated by chilis with a big burn at the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with very low carbonation.

    Overall, it's a completely one dimensional beer - it's all about the heat and the chilis. But it's definitely the hottest beer I've had. It's not as bad a ghost pepper sauces I've had though.
