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.

kermis (11261) - Where the wild whales are, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2015
Bottle shaped at the De Molen monthly tasting. Pours cloudy blonde with a ring white head. Aroma of fruity peppers, light mango, apricot and other fruits. Flavour is light to light moderate sweet and bitter. Pepper heat showing up fairly strong in the first sip and building with each after. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Interesting, but certainly wouldn’t want to drink the whole bomber by myself.

biirusaikou (2585) - - JUN 2, 2015
Draught at SL Beer Hall. Don’t get much apricot, more mango-like fruitiness followed by plenty of red pepper. Decently fruity and not overly spicy unlike Californian crazy spice beers, fun drink in small serving.

chinchill (4337) - South Carolina, USA - APR 5, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2015 This beer is mildly sweet, being considerably more tart, but really packs some heat. The heat builds nicely with repeated consumption. Apricots contribute nicely. Should work well with Asian cuisine.

maxwelldeux (4351) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - MAR 16, 2015
Bottle. Pours a very cloudy dark golden color with a moderate off white head on there. Nose has yeast and wheat and some light fruit, but no peppers to it. Taste is a bit sweet up front with some generic heat, but not an overabundance of flavor.

DuffMan (9610) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 24, 2015
Bottle, shared with Dave. Very hazy pale yellow, lasting white head. Aroma is an odd blend of fresh cut vegetation and apricots, a bit sweaty. Flavour of celery, apricots, grass with pale unobtrusive malts. Lasting prickly heat deep in the throat. I didn’t mind this, even though it’s clearly a structural mess.
