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.

22 oz bottle- Pours hazy pale golden with a nice white head that reduces leaving a blanket. Aroma is spicy fresh peppers, wheat, mostly peppers though which is fine by me. Taste is similar, fresh peppers dominate the senses, wheat, it starts out with a mild burn but builds to a decent amount of heat. Body could be fuller. Overall I loved this beer, not nearly enough hot pepper beers on the market.

"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..."

Hints of apricot in aroma, sweet start with short fiery finish. Nice well balanced beer.

Rating from 6/10/13. Bomber with a sexy label. Pours hazy cantaloupe with a medium white soapy head with excellent retention. Aroma is nice and peppery--apricots do come through as it warms up. Taste starts out lightly sweet before intense heat comes in and obliterates everything. Leaves the lips burning and sweat droplets form on the face. Tartness from the apricots comes out after it warms up. Mouthfeel is a little foamy, maybe a tad thin, feels gritty, not to the detriment of my overall impression. The label downplayed the heat in this. "Slight spiciness," my ass! I love spicy beers, though, and this is the shit.

I really liked this beer. The smell was delicious, sweet apricot. Upfront I could taste the apricot, on the backend the peppers. I couldn’t finish my whole 24oz due to the heat but still loved it.

Closuy yellow color with sediment. Medium carbonation. Aroma of Skunky pilsner. Sips medium and has a med carbonation. Slight citrus and hop bitterness. The finish has a slow creeping hot pepper experience. Apricot flavor is present in the afterbreath as well. Very crisp and biting with the carbonation. I could drink this brew all night surprisingly.
