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.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2018 0. 65 l bottle from Pivoteka . Big tasting #2. Murky golden, small off-white head. Yeasty, fruity, spicy. Strong peppery spice. Apricot is here. Very nice balance, smooth hot spices. Actually sweet. Medium body, light carbonation. Hot finish. Liked it!

On tap at Burnside. Pours a slightly hazy straw colour with a small off-white head. Careful aroma of some grass, pale malt and hay. Flavour of jalapenos, grass, hay and pale malt. Has a slick mouth feel, light to medium body and a light bitterness. A bit one dimensional but the chili touch is nice. Not much of the apricots.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a softly hazed gold with a medium sized white head. A bit of fruit and wheat on the nose. Medium bodied, soft sweetness, a bit of peach and apricot, then some gentle habanero pepper fruit, and then the slow gentle burn that would be expected. Mellow though, heat never overpowers. Fades mostly but a touch lingers in the background. Well done.
