    Bear with me here, this just came to me on the long drive home after work.

    Has anyone done a sour beer, but then spiced it up with some chili peppers of some sort? Just a mild spice.
    I was thinking something akin to the sweet and sour sauce you get for Chinese takeout.
    I'm thinking keep this pale, maybe even a wheat beer.
    Are there any hops with a pronounced pineapple flavor?

    pronounced pineapple, i hear things about Hallertau Blanc, which i can't testify for because my Hallertau Blanc IPA is currently in the secondary.

    "Aroma & Flavor Characteristics: Moderate to strong featuring pineapple, gooseberry, white grape, fresh lemongrass stalk, and passionfruit. Reminiscent of many recent Southern Hemisphere varieties, but with a cleaner, less “dank” profile."

    Also, if you're looking for even a sweet and spicy beer, check out Founders Mango Magnifico is insane. 10%er with all mango up front and habanero in back. That's what i thought when you said Chinese takeout, i enjoy the sweet and spicy sauce.
