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.

bhensonb (10803) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Bomber from Malt and Vine. Pours hazy gold with a slight white head. Aroma is apricot with underlying spice. Med minus body. Flavor starts rather chili, and then the apricot comes out. Really quite nice. Makes me wonder what would have happened if chilies had been available to the northern european brewers several centuries ago. This is very nicely done.

brokensail (10645) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Cloudy golden pour with a white head. Interesting aroma. Really pronounced apricot and almost honey like sweetness up front. Spicy chile peppers, grass, and some herbs. The flavor is mildly spicy, but not terribly sweet. Minimal apricot character. Chile pepper, grass, green bell pepper, and very high carbonation leading to an acidic feel.

Travlr (9998) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Draft at the source. Hazy yellow. Aroma of lightly spoced straw. More heat than sweet, i’m glad I took my little purple pill before this one. Ouch.

Theydon_Bois (7944) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2012
Bottle on the train from Vauxhall to Windsor into plastic glass (thanks to Dave W and Frank initially) 20/11/12. Murky yellow akin to fresh pineapple juice with a mahooooosive white head that thins but retains well. Nose is plastic, pepper, spice, herbs, chilli notes, light soap. Taste comprises light apricots, then boom - a spicy chilli kick. This then overides and dominates the other flavours. Medium bodied with light spritzy carbonation leading to a spicy finish with a good heat burn going on. Overall - not one for everyday drinking, a little too hot, but interesting enough and one of the better chilli infused beers I’ve sampled.

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.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Orangish straw, cloudy and thick, thin to moderate frothy white head, little lacing.   Big nose of green chilis.   Smells spicy!   Wheaty start, quickly turning spicy with what seems like green chilis.   Its actually not half bad.   Spicy, but not caustic.   One of the few I can actually stand to drink.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Spicy finish, pale wheat and chilis.   Very simplistic, but its enjoyable in that its not overly done with heat.   I won’t say its all that sweet, but sweet enough I guess.   Respectable!

Bomber. Very cloudy yellow, cloudy pastel, lace. Lots of chili pepper in the nose, apricots, orange, wheaty. Very spicy peppery flavor, apricot, bread. Completely dominated by the Scotch Bonnet peppers. Not for me, but well done if you like this kind of thing.
