3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Pours a translucent golden colour with a two and a half finger white head that thins. Slight, very small sediment can be seen. Very nice lacing can be seen coating the inside of the glass.
Aroma is fruity with a hint of yeast.
Taste is a touch bitter but well balanced with a hint of apricot on a crisp, dry finish.
Medium body medium carbonation. Slightly flat in texture.
A very nice brew. I wish I had gotten more of it!!!!!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle from the brewery, via Lubiere (merci!), served cold in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear amber with a large, orange-off-white foam.
Aroma: Rich toast and bread crust, some tropical fruit notes, burnt sugar, pine/resin/dank notes, earthy, seems tight.
Palate: Medium body, full effervescence with bubbles of varying size (odd description, but it fits).
Flav.: Biscuit, toast, bread crust, more fruitiness than the nose, tropical, a little peppery, less hop presence than the nose, very drinkable; dry with moderate bitterness and a long, reasonably fruity and dank finish.
I guess I expected a wallop of tropical fruit salad. Subdued.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (500 ml). Thanks John! Slightly hazy bright golden with a medium off-white head and intense lacing. Aroma is fruity with a distinct presence of mango and apricots along with caramel and light resinous notes. Taste slightly sweet with fruity notes, mainly apricots and mango (but less intense than aroma), malt, mineral presence and moderate bitterness. Not really tasty... too simple. Alcohol is well hidden. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. It’s more of an APA than a fruit beer. Too simple, but not bad.
