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.

TiemeWitte (4) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - AUG 22, 2015 does not count
Shared bottle at home. Pours a light yellow or amber, depending how much residue is present. Aroma is apricot, chocolate, and a bit of pepper. Tastes a lot like pepper, mostly in the aftertaste. Was a nice experiment, but would likely go for another beer next time.

Sadly out of balance with the scotch bonnet chillies dominating the flavour and aftertaste.

Part of a tasting flight at BCS. Hazy mango juice color with no head. Very light fruit aroma and some grain. Watery mouthfeel with a medium to light body. Taste has some soap and vegetative notes with some light fruit. Spicy finish. Kinda weird.

Dégustée au RBBSG 2015. Cheers all! Bière que j’ai beaucoup aimé lors de ma première gorgée mais qui dès la deuxième m’a soudainement paru infecte. Jaune paille, voilée, la bière propose un nez poivré et très houblonné. Ce n’est qu’à la deuxième gorgée que j’ai réellement détecté l’atroce acidité de la bière lorsque celle-ci a fouetté mon palais insouciant. Un véritable goût de piment non pas dans la bouche, mais dans le fond de la gorge. ARK! Les quelques saveurs présentes sont fades, mal définies et inutilement présentes car le piment éclipse absolument tout. À l’instar de cette chose mi chatte mi lionne sur l’étiquette, cette bière est laide et indéfinissable. Vous portez bien votre nom, Burnside...

650 ml. bottle sampled @ “Hot & Sweaty RBBSG 2015”. Purchased @ Caigny. Pale golden, little white head. 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.

Part of a flight on June 29, 2015. At the brewpub in Portland.
Lime, citrus, spicy, head taste. Heat, ginger like aftertaste. Fizzy mouthfeel, low bitterness, heat on the tongue. Hazy straw yellow color, white head. Vegetal, ctirus scent.

ElManana (2079) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - JUL 4, 2015
Bottle at RBBSG, thanks for sharing 77ships. Horrible, heat, yeast, very bad beer.

Benzai (16923) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2015
Sampled from bottle @ RBBSG 2015. Hazy pale yellow color, small white head. Smell and taste lightly malts, lemongrass, chili burn heavily, peppers. Oh dear Lord, way way too much for me. Yuk!

Strykzone (7799) - 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.
