Burnside COAX No 3 - Meridian and Ekuanot
Bottle. Hazy dark gold in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of strong pine resin, biscuits, mild caramel and black pepper. Odd Cruciferous vegetable flavor, along with elements of burnt orange peel, juniper, and heavy pale malts. Somewhat heavy on the palate with only moderate bitterness.

Burnside (OR) Romancing the Stone Fruit IPA
Pours clear light amber, not very foamy. Aroma is nicely fruity, decent tropical fruits hops, little bit of herbs. Taste is juicy and fruity, super drinkable. Finish has beautiful hop tingle, not too strong but persistent. Stone fruit. Dry and lingering bitter finish. Pretty good actually, drinks easy and tastes great.

Burnside Spring Rye
First noticed is the lovely, cloudy deep amber color and very light colored frothy (though not deep) head. Taste is fairly unique blend of ’dirty’ rye and fruity, almost saison-like maltiness. Very subtle coriander. Minor hop presence. Appreciated on an actual early spring day, 60 degrees and not a cloud, this 22 oz. serving perfectly complimented the afternoon. Kudos to Burnside for stretching the boundaries a bit with this brew.

Draft at taproom. Gorgeous por, thick, creamy head. Welcoming aroma, roast grains and chocolate. Taste is a bit more robust, smooth, and alcohol heat creeps in late. Really well done.

Bottle at a tasting. Lots of bitterness, but the hops character lost its edge to caramelly candyish sweetish backbone. What hops remains is citrusy, resiny. Good, but not great.

Burnside COAX No 3 - Meridian and Ekuanot
Tasting at the 4th most powerful rater of 2016 place
Hazy golden color. The malt profile is a bit biscuity, the hop is definitively resiny, but there is too much vegetable in the aroma and flavor: cabbage, asparagus.
I have mixed feeling about this one; I can’t say I really like this.

Burnside COAX No 3 - Meridian and Ekuanot
22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy amber orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out earthy, spicy hops, a little pine and some toasted biscuity malt. Flavour brings out an earthy and spicy hop varietal, followed by booze and a little citrus. Earthy and spicy on the finish. Not my type of IIPA, but it’s alright.

Burnside COAX No 3 - Meridian and Ekuanot
Dull amber, not much head. Smells fairly bright, with florals, citrus. Has a lot of floral notes, bright orange, and dried flowers. The malts are fairly strong, but they support these hops well with a touch of caramel. A bit chewy, but otherwise a pretty good, older school example.

Starts with big wheat malt flavor with banana sweetness. Finishes smooth and dry with clove and a bit of citrus flavor. Simple hefe, but quite nice.

Burnside Lime Kolsch
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Hazy blond color. On the sweet side for a Kölsch, or maybe it’s the lack of bitterness; could be any anonymous Lager; luckily the lime is just a hint in the aroma and flavor, not too evident.
Beer for the uneducated drinker, very boring, but clean.

Burnside Lime Kolsch
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a clear pale copper blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out light notes of lime and subdued biscuity malt. Flavour is dominated by fresh lime, leaving little else available to be discerned. A totally lime-dominated beer. It’s okay.

Another failed new world attempt at a "Farmhouse Ale". Some funkiness to it, but the hops, malt and yeast all seem a bit strange and there is nothing authentic or even that recommendable to it.

Tap at the HAF A: Dark caramel in color with a cappuccino head, and lacing. N: Toffee, grapefruit, pineapple, cherry, toasted biscuit, maltiness, pepperiness, branches, some coconut and caramel underneath. T: Very bitter but not astringent. Balancing sweetness. M: Medium body, light alcohol, crisp carbonation. O: Quite nice. Similar to Massive; I feel like Roots Epic Ale had a say in this one, too.

Burnside Sweet Heat
(Burnside Sweet Heat) Bottle 650ml at home, served into a shaker, ABV 4.9% Bright golden yellow colour on the body, tall and thick white head on top, great retention. Aroma has lots and lots of chili peppers, lemon leaves underneath and subtle fruity notes. Taste is mainly peppers, not much of a burn thoough, just a tickle at th back of the throat for the most part. Again subtle fruity notes, I couldn’t clearly say it was apricot, faint wheat on the aftertaste. Medium body with good carbonation. Quite good.

Burnside Blueberry Pie
Cask days 2016. Hazy, slightly purple is red pour, with a lightly pink head. Aroma is sweet, random berries and not much else. Sweetness drops off at the end, light bitterness, syrup, and berries. Pretty one dimensional, and kinda boring. A boring style of beer with a whack of sugar added with some berry flavour.
