Burnside Sweet Heat is a wheat ale with an addition of 200 pounds of Apricot puree, then dry hopped with imported Jamaican Scotch Bonnet peppers. Reminiscent of a Caribbean chutney, Sweet Heat has a subtle tartness from the fruit with a slight spiciness from the peppers which also adds a fruitiness to the aroma.

On tap at the brewpub. Pour is hazy honeycomb with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Fruity, earthy, peppery, biscuity, and doughy aroma. Taste is sweet peaches, earthy roasted peppers, herbs, bread, and lemons with medium pepper heat on the backend. Light body with medium carbonation. Nothing special but a damn interesting beer.

Had this in draft as part of a flight at Burnside Brewing in Portland. Yellow and cloudy. Spicy but not offensive. Light and peppery. Good.

Tangy and spicy. Very unique taste. Strong after taste. Cloudy looking beer. Almost a bit too tangy to the point of almost sour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Loved the hint of chili found in the beer. Not strong apricot. Really enjoyed this beer. Light and refreshing with some interesting parts

Damn it Shirah. Hazy yellow color. Vegetal pepper aroma, sweetness follows with some mango fruity character. Fruity apricot up front and then lots of pepper flavor and big residual heat in the back.

Smells like tropical fruit on first opening. Then turns into a raw jalapeño scent. Not too harsh to drink. Heat in the back of throat but dissipates quickly.

Bottle thanks to dan. Pours yellow with white head. Aroma of jalepano and heat. Taste is sweet up front, then all heat. Not that bad.

Bottle thanks to Dan. Nose is vegetal. Very sweet up front and then goes into a slow burn in your throat. Ugh. Not bad but definitely glad someone shared it.

Bomber. Pours a very cloudy pale yellow with some orange tint. Nice foamy head that collects to a ring. Very cool aroma of sour lemon, peppers, wet grass, and wheat. Tastes very good too. Nice mix of wheat, peppers, and fruit. The fruit comes off more sour and tart than sweet which works really well and makes this rather unique. Moderate pepper burn in the finish that linger a very long time. I love pepper beers and this one of the more unique ones I’ve had.

One of the most interesting low-alcohol wheat ales I’ve ever had. The apricots and Jamaican Scotch Bonnet peppers are an odd combo, but they somehow work. Only 9 IBUs, but the beer’s tartness and peppery heat balance out the malts surprisingly well. Oddly refreshing and curiously enjoyable.
