Rough brown paper that recalls butcher paper with the State of Maine and an outdoors man canoeing a long a bucolic river. I like it but it lost points since all the sauces have essentially the same label.
An attractive, deep blue bordering on purple. Thick but still pours easily. Jelly-like consistency. Chunks of garlic, pepper, spices and blueberry throughout.
Surprisingly, very vinegar and habanero forward. Very slight undercurrent of sweetness.
Garlic and vinegar are at the forefront which gives way to the fruit of the blueberry and peppers. A very subtle sweetness.
Very mild for a habanero sauce. A delayed and subdued kick at the back of the throat that quickly dissipates.
The sauce isn't too sweet and is mild on the fruit flavor. I would have preferred a little more heat and a more intense blueberry flavor. I tossed some chicken wings with this and the sauce got lost against the flavor of the chicken. I think this would be good on blander foods so as not to be overpowered. A good accompaniment to cream cheese, pancakes or even vanilla ice cream.
