Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Heat:🔥🔥🔥 I've been meaning to get round to reviewing @yellowbirdsauce for some time and after a lovely trip to @hopburnsblack on Saturday I finally got my hands on some. They've got probably the best written website I've had the pleasure of perusing as yet, spinning a lovely yarn about a musician and an artist with a passion for organic ingredients. I'm a musician myself so excited to see what they have created.
_ 👁 I enjoy the fact that the bottle is a little different. Cleverly the only two bits of bright yellow are the lid and the bird which ties things together nicely. The bird itself is really well designed, I love his inquisitive but kind of bad-ass expression too. The rest is textbook, well laid out and a nice custom cut label, definitely the work of a professional. _ 👃 On giving it a good sniff it smells sweet and garlicy. Probably owing to the fact that carrots are the main ingredient. Interested to see what that does to the flavour! _ 👅 The first flavour I actually get is the distinct tang of the organic distilled vinegar. This is closely followed by the sweetness of the carrots and the cane sugar and then the heat of the habaneros. I love habaneros, they give such an exciting heat. Whilst there's nothing extravagant about the flavour to make it stand out, you get the sense that everything is real. The sweetness is there but not immediate, the vinegar is strong but not unpleasant and the heat is very well balanced. Some care has gone into this. _ 👭 This is quite hot and fresh so I can see it going well with something light. Maybe falafel and roasted vegetables with this added to give a bunch of extra flavour and heat. _ 🍕 The presence of the carrots gives this a great consistency. As mentioned in a previous review, If you want a sauce to be thick change the ratios.
