Tap at Burnside Brewing, Portland. Colour is very cloudy golden with small thick creamy white head. Aromas and flavours: Fruits, citrus, wheat, spices, pepper and malts. Too spicy and hot for me. DuffMan (10751) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 24, 2015
Bottle, shared with Dave. Very hazy pale yellow, lasting white head. Aroma is an odd blend of fresh cut vegetation and apricots, a bit sweaty. Flavour of celery, apricots, grass with pale unobtrusive malts. Lasting prickly heat deep in the throat. I didn’t mind this, even though it’s clearly a structural mess. kbudd19 (1022) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 10, 2015
Bottle. Appearance is cloudy yellow which minimal head. Aroma is citrus, powder taco mix, and apricots. Taste is light citrus, followed by a kick of spice, some apricots, and then finishes crisp and spicy finis. The aftertaste is little bit like the lingering effect from chomping into a ranch Doritos taco. This is a bit of a weird beer, I don’t get much in the way apricots from the taste, it certainly has a fair bit of spice and an odd aftertaste, but it’s also kind of refeshing...crazy. vyvvy (6835) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 9, 2015
On tap at the brewery - Pours cloudy yellow with a white head. The aroma has stone fruit, clean wheat, citrus and a touch of heat. It has a medium / light crisp body with a modest amount of carbonation. The flavor starts off with stone fruit, orange, American wheat and biting heat. The finish has the peppers hitting hard with seedy pepper heat, fleshy peppers and makes the stomach burn a bit. Hits the mark of what it’s supposed to do. presario (4925) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 31, 2014
Big white foam on cloudy dark yellow. Aroma of apricots, urine and pepper. Watery wheat with light fruit and a great but wasted pepper spice note. I am more upset by the wasted pepper than the lousy beer.

650ml bomber pours a hazy golden orange color with a finger of white head that settles to leave only a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is apricots and peppers with some grains. Taste is a fruity and grainy malt sweetness with a moderate burn from the peppers and a light hoppy bitterness. Light bodied and well carbonated. Nicely balanced between the heat and the sweet. Recommended. poisonivan (1) - Oregon, USA - DEC 9, 2014 does not count
I love the interplay of the tart fruitiness with the spicy burn. The latter isn’t overwhelming. It’s just right. bpreo (3011) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Sweet and spicy combine to make a very fine tasting beer. The sweetness is not overpowering, nor is the spice. The spice hits your tongue first, and the sweetness after you swallow. It’s great. mcberko (19809) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 21, 2014
On tap at Burnside, pours a hazy pale blonde with a tiny head. Aroma brings out modest apricots and light peppers. Flavour begins with light apricots, followed by pure spices. Not overly pleasing. More like a fun experiment. It’s okay. slowrunner77 (13205) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 18, 2014
"Wonderful combo of fruit and heat. Ample, but not overly sweet apricot and scotch bonnet peppers (a favorite of mine) play really well together. The heat is enough to notice but not enough to overpower the tart fruit, and the pepper flavor stays with toy afterwards. For this on tap, and have a bottle for next week..."
