A Little Sweet Heat

I know it’s been a little while, and I have been drinking beer– I just haven’t had time to write about it. School gets in the way of everything, but here’s a fun one to get back into the swing of things. This is the first beer that I love enough to give a 5/5.

This beer scared me, I thought it sounded way to weird to be good. I don’t like apricots, but I do like apricot beer for some reason- It  must be the beer part. I also hate spicy things; so this beer sounded like a hot mess to me. Eventually curiosity and a beautiful label got the best of me and I am so glad that it did.

It smell like sweet summer apricots. It tastes like the most fun thing I have ever tried. It starts sweet and transitions to a heat sensation. It’s a fun transition that plays with your senses. It sits at the front of your tongue. The heat of the chili is left in your mouth once the fades leaving your mouth with a slight tingle.

I would highly recommend this beer to everyone, even if you share a bottle, it’s worth a try.
