COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Looks nice but its heartburn city. Couldn’t even finish it. Hot peppers salsa in a bottle. Thanks a lot David.

Cool beer. On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear yellow color with a medium white head. A light nose of biscuit and lemon hops. The flavor is similar with fruity hops, then a big noticeable pepper burn in the throat, not a ton of pepper flavor but a lot of heat. Good beer.

Hazy yellow with a small white head and some lacing. Aroma of wheat and citrus. Flavors of wheat, sweet malts, then warm green peppers in the back of the throat
Nice, just the right amount of heat. Tasty.

Ferris (4166) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle - Smells just like my favorite Jamaican hot sauce, sweet and heat is right. Cloudy yellow with a thin white head. The beer is surprisingly intact, may others try to to a beer with so much heat it ruins it, but the wheat wine is actually left almost in tact to start. The heat and fruit quickly take over and you are left with the typical hot sauce after burn. One of the better tasting chili beers, but still to much to be an actual pleasant beer.

Bomber. Very cloudy yellow, cloudy pastel, lace. Lots of chili pepper in the nose, apricots, orange, wheaty. Very spicy peppery flavor, apricot, bread. Completely dominated by the Scotch Bonnet peppers. Not for me, but well done if you like this kind of thing.

Davhgbrew (940) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Closuy yellow color with sediment. Medium carbonation. Aroma of Skunky pilsner. Sips medium and has a med carbonation. Slight citrus and hop bitterness. The finish has a slow creeping hot pepper experience. Apricot flavor is present in the afterbreath as well. Very crisp and biting with the carbonation. I could drink this brew all night surprisingly.

Growler fill. From memory. This is a nice sessionable beer with an aroma of peppers. Taste is moderately sweet, with a spiciness from the peppers that is just enough to be pleasant without spoiling the other qualities of the beer. The apricots were not obvious, it just had a fruity quality behind the heat. This makes a very nice complement to grilled meats, and it pairs well with grilled pork chops.

Lagerboy (1231) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2013
Bomber. Unclear pale yellow, foamy white head settles quickly and fades. Muted aroma of wheat, apricot and pepper. Fruity apricot taste up front, becomes tart/sour and citric, light wheat malt, subtle backseat heat slowly permeates. Average carbonation, lighter bodied, low hopped. Clean heat finish, interesting and enjoyable. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

Bomber. Thanks john. Pours straw yellow, with minimal cap. Aroma of peppers, over ripe fruit. Taste is sour, warming. Lingering pepper heat but not unpleasant.

I really liked this beer. The smell was delicious, sweet apricot. Upfront I could taste the apricot, on the backend the peppers. I couldn’t finish my whole 24oz due to the heat but still loved it.
