4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample at En ÷l- & Whiskymšssa, Gothenburg, April, 2015. From a í14 bottle. Hazy peachy with a small white foam. Aroma is incredibly present with apricot, orange juice, lactic and slight funkiness with some wood, tiny hint of white pepper. Taste is above everything VERY fruity, with apricot, slight lactic tone of citrus and vinegar, slight fermented fruit bitterness in an otherwise dry finish. Medium body, low carbo, musty texture. Just a terrific, juicy, musty beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Fouí Foune í14 vintage
Pours a vibrant, hazy peachy color, with a decent, fizzy head.
Pure apricots. So much fruit, accompanied by wooden stone qualities, fermented apricots and leathery wood. The nose got a glue like, vinegar whiff to it, accentuating the funky tartness, while its focus remains without a doubt on the fruits.
Perfectly carbonated, with a very refreshing light body.
Taste mirrors the nose, regarding the apricots, revealing apricot pulp, vinegar, vaseline, plastic, soap, glue - all funked up, by leather and barnyard. The nose comes incedibly nice together, again, revealing its fruity characteristics. Finishes tart, dry, with a fermented fruit bitterness, still complimenting the apricots, leaving back a tooth pluckering sourness.
Incredibly well pronounced apricots among a supersoft mouthfeel, wrapped up by a thirst quenching, dry sourness. Refreshing in body, juicy, with a sour lemon peel infusion, leaving with a long lasting, acidic tartness.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
í14 Bottle poured into this Cantillon glass - Itís a nice hazy gold, with a one fingered white head that actually retains well. Weíre starting off on the right foot already. Temperature was perhaps in the middle of where it needed to be - but I slow drank this one until it moved into the ideal threshold, and thatís where it really revealed its depth and complexity. Apricot pits to start this one off , mixed with lactic. Typical lambic funk is modest here, but it is here. White pepper, juice, and grass notes round off the nose. The flavor profile was jarring initially, but we got the palate lined up where it needed to be for this one very quickly. Itís musty, dank grasses, light lactic, with a well rounded tartness present. White pepper, earthy oak presence, and apricot juice and skins moving forward to lemon zest. The flavor profile is complex and deep, and near perfect at the proper temp. 2014 is a winner in my book and it was the winner of Melís í15 Mini Apricot Tasting.

2014 bottle at home from brewberry Paris
hazy amber, no head, moderate carbonation, full bodied, slight Dusty fruit but overwhelming lemony citric sourness. Left overnight in the fridge carbonation subsides and a bit more apricot earthiness comes through but tartness still prevalent. Perhaps needed more age on it but disappointing VS the hype.

Bright orange colour on a mostly clear body, more cloudy on next pours, big white head, thin and fizzy, collapsing fast, leaving a thin line of foam around the glass.
Aroma has plenty of apricots, not very strong aroma but you can find a wide variety of apricots, peel, ripe flesh, unripe too, some
Nice taste, quite sour, musty, leaves, less apricot than I expected, floral notes.
Medium body, good carbonation. Tart on the palate.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
75cl bottle from 2014. Aroma is is very broad spectrum! Lots and lots of apricot peel and even rotten apricot. Musty, cheesy, ascetic acid with a lemon apricot aftertaste. Itís interesting to smell an almost empty glass, comparee to a freshly poured one. The latter offers a combination of co2, yeast and apricot peel/flesh. Slight pepper adds beautifully to the combination. In the end the apricot hints are isolated, which I find true craftmanship.

(bottle - 750 ml - 2013 vintage) Cloudy amber with a thin white head. Lightly fruity aroma that instantly goes tart and sour. Flavor is a sour bomb right in your face. Didnít get any apricot but I didnít care. Lots of amazing sour flavors.
