4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a fruit beer? Well, I thought it was an American strong ale, hence I put it in a snifter.
The appearance was a soft hazy semi-burnt bronze golden transaparency. Carbonation is barely seem. But a thin rimmed white little head that dissipated nice with a delicate spider web lacing.
The aroma blends sweet apricot along with the honey. Sticky malty notes underneath.
The flavor is the sticky apricot and honey along with the malts, somewhat Belgian sweetness. But no spice. Smooth sticky notes hit in the aftertaste and then hitting lightly in the finish, fairly quick.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a delicate smooth stickiness rolling over my tongue.
Overall, fruit beer or American Strong ale, hmmmm....well, it’s quite good, whatever it’s supposed to be. I’d have this again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Bottle Bin. Very potent brew with a really sugary taste up front. The sweetness almost becomes cloying, but stops just shy. Alcohol is underlying, but hidden just beneath the surface. Pretty good for its potency. The flavors are well balanced to keep this beer from going to far in any direction, but just barely.
