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.

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.

Nose is very odd, strongly vegetable with lots of lemon, fizzy & artificial like,… Taste is milky, soapy, vegetable with apricots, not good followed by chili head, heat is quite good but the rest really wasn’t,… Hugely soapy body. Not good.

Strykzone (5502) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2015
Sampled at the brewpub. Haxy golden. White ring. Lots of wheat and apricot here. Some spiceiness. Feels like fruit juice in the mouth. Black peppers along with anchos, maybe.

Bomber from Safeway. Very hazy light straw in color. Nose is somewhat like a wheat ale or wit. Some fruitiness and a hint of spiciness. Very spicy. A little underlying sweetness in the background. Overall quite spicy. Kind of reminds me of pizza for some reason.

kermis (6866) - The Hague, 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.

Sample at the last Molen monthly tasting. No head. Cloudy blond pour. Plenty of spiciness. Not my cup of tea. Too spicy

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.
