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.

Draught at the brewpub. Fragrant, fruity, and slightly peppery aroma. Very pale yellow; apple juice color. Extremely mild initial flavors; then the peppers hit hard in mid palate. Very thin body. Just the right amount of peppers; maybe more hops would help. I didn’t really notice the apricot. Interesting stuff.

Tap. Hazy honey color with minimal head. Smells like peppers and honey and something else freshly sweet. Tastes peppery and spicy and wheaty. Nice heat.

Tap at the brewery. Pours hazy yellow with a small head. Aroma chili, vegetables and some hops. Gives an immediate burning sensation, but dissapates qyickly. Nice chili beet. Not Bad.

Nikiel (877) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 28, 2011
On tap at PDX Beer Week with Carla. Pours a very hazy golden orange with almost no foam. Smells pretty bland with a hint of sweetness. Feels thin and water. Tastes lightly sweet and tangy of apricots and is followed up by a pretty boring wheat flavor and ends with a nice subtle spice. Mostly everything is too subtle.

Truth in advertising. A tiny bit of fruit up top. Followed by a healthy dose of wheat and grain and then at the back end and top of palate is the pepper which lingers around as a warning. If I was a spicy beer person this would be rated higher.

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.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 28, 2011
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.
