2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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.

[2/24/15] Draught at Burnside Brewing in Portland. Nice shiny cloudy yellow. Aroma of wheat, fruitiness, candy and a vegetal note. Sweet fruity flavor with candy and a hot chili finish. Light-bodied. Not my thing.

Tap at Burnside Brewing, Portland. Colour is very cloudy golden with small thick creamy white head. Aromas and flavours: Fruits, citrus, wheat, spices, pepper and malts. Too spicy and hot for me.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 didnít mind this, even though itís clearly a structural mess.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Appearance is cloudy yellow which minimal head. Aroma is citrus, powder taco mix, and apricots. Taste is light citrus, followed by a kick of spice, some apricots, and then finishes crisp and spicy finis. The aftertaste is little bit like the lingering effect from chomping into a ranch Doritos taco. This is a bit of a weird beer, I donít get much in the way apricots from the taste, it certainly has a fair bit of spice and an odd aftertaste, but itís also kind of refeshing...crazy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery - Pours cloudy yellow with a white head. The aroma has stone fruit, clean wheat, citrus and a touch of heat. It has a medium / light crisp body with a modest amount of carbonation. The flavor starts off with stone fruit, orange, American wheat and biting heat. The finish has the peppers hitting hard with seedy pepper heat, fleshy peppers and makes the stomach burn a bit. Hits the mark of what itís supposed to do.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Big white foam on cloudy dark yellow. Aroma of apricots, urine and pepper. Watery wheat with light fruit and a great but wasted pepper spice note. I am more upset by the wasted pepper than the lousy beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bomber pours a hazy golden orange color with a finger of white head that settles to leave only a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is apricots and peppers with some grains. Taste is a fruity and grainy malt sweetness with a moderate burn from the peppers and a light hoppy bitterness. Light bodied and well carbonated. Nicely balanced between the heat and the sweet. Recommended.

I love the interplay of the tart fruitiness with the spicy burn. The latter isnít overwhelming. Itís just right.
