First Annual Portland Fruit Beer Festival – Portland, OR
Orangeish in color, hazy with a thin head. Lots of pepper and yeast in the flavor The beer has a big heat and malt flavor. This is a tasty pepper brew. It is a must try and if you like heat then buy a pint. If not get a taster.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cloudy as shit yellow. Very summery. Airy, light chilli in the yeasty, bready nose. Very light. Drinkable with a very light and mellow character from the malt the chilli flesh gives a good, if meager flavour there might be some apricot in the finish I guess. I’d assume this was about 3.5% from the wateriness.

draft. cloudy wit-like appearance. spicy pepper flakes / powder-like chile character. chewy, soft wheat / oat character with mild pulpy vegetable chile flavor. funny thing the nose I identify more as jalapeno than scotch bonnet.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lemon acidity on the nose with a faint tartness. Hazy and straw colored. Musty, peppery bite. Apricot is almost absent. Pepper heat lingers throughout the finish. Light in body and mild carbonation. Interesting beer, but more of a novely.

Hints of apricot in aroma, sweet start with short fiery finish. Nice well balanced beer.

I’ve had a few Burnside brews since they’ve been open. But this is the first I’m rating. Glad to have Jason back brewing again, and it seems like Burnside Brewing Co. has their act together for sure. Tap @ their brewpub... Poured a cloudy, vibrant orange/yellow with a white head. The aroma was a bit yeasty and wheaty. Flavors were noticeable sweet with wheat and barley, and then big time heat coming back up to the palate. Exactly what you’d expect in a chili beer. The apricots played like a balance to the heat, but I wouldn’t say it tasted like an apricot wheat beer.
