Pours a thin head on a cloudy light straw colored body.
The aroma is odd. Frying oil and vinegar. Not enjoyable.
The taste has a mild grain sweetness throughout with a hot pepper spice kick in the middle to end. Long hot finish.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
The level of heat is perfect.

didn't know what to expect - and was delighted by the perfect 'tug' between apricots and peppers. burnside should be quite proud of going out on a limb.... and succeeding. this also makes an interesting session brew at only 4.9 percent. taste dictates that it's a 'sipper', while low ABV means it can be an all-evening sipper.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

22oz bottle poured at fridge temp (41 F) into a pair of pint glasses. No date that I can see. Most of the sediment left in the bottle.

Pours clear golden with a small head, slight slow carbonation. Little flakes floating lazily around. Smell is fruity and yeasty.

Taste is sweet, slightly spicy, I definitely get some indication of apricot. Mild and tasty, but some kind of astringent flavor which is not quite astringent -- I just don't know how to describe something a little bit off about this.

Mouthfeel is thick and slick. Overall, it's not bad. But I won't buy another.
