The quality of this sauce is apparent - you can tell care was put into making it and bottling it. That said, it is *really* sweet - it pretty much tastes like peppers and sugar. There's no sweet/sour twang at all here - this isn't like sweet hot bbq sauce. If you like ketchupy sweet Thai sriracha - meaning Shark Brand, not Huy Fong - this is not all that different. This is like a vinegar-based hot sauce where the vinegar was replaced with with sugar, and the "hot" is legitimately hot. If that sounds like something you'd like I'd definitely recommend this sauce. Not really my thing, but again, the quality is definitely there.
