Melbourne Hot Sauce Hop Smoked Jalapeño
Our second Melbourne Hot Sauce to feature on the ChilliBOM Red Box, this time Richard has teamed up to create a 3-way collaboration between Melbourne Hot Sauce, Wolf of the Willows Brewery and St Kilda Burger Bar and, coincidentally enough, is a hot sauce designed for burgers!
It features Extra Pale Ale (XPA) beer and jalapeños that are smoked for 6 hours over cherry wood and galaxy hops, giving this sauce a natural smoky aroma and flavour. It has a thick consistency and a deep crimson red colour from both the jalapenos and tomato.
There is a slight bitterness from the XPA that is well balanced with the acid from the lemon and tomato and the sweetness from the sugar. A solid heat from the jalapeños that is not too overpowering, but that deep and authentic smokiness is the true star of this hot sauce.
We obviously had to recommend a burger with this and we went with the a beef burger with pickles and mayo paired with your favourite beer!
