2016 Boise stone fruit bottle share on 8/27. Not everyone liked this, but I thought it was pretty darn tasty, Full apricot aromas and flavors, almost tasted like a can of apricot nectar. Very juicy, sweet.

Bottle pours out a apricot . Nose is old cardboard peach syrup and some odd note. Taste is more of the old oxidation apricot candy syrup. Both of them are not good both of them un drinkable

Bottle share, thanks Jeremy. Brownish orange color with a few white bubbles on top. Apricot in the aroma and some sugary sweetness. Very sweet overall, lots of sugar and malts go with a little bit of apricot. Better than the peach version.

Theydon_Bois (16856) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2016
Bottle split in the Fart Dungeon, SF, pleasure was all mine guys 28/01/16. Hazed golden orange with a decent off white covering. Nose is syrupy fruits, sweet apricot jam, straw, faint yeast. Taste comprises sweet apricot, mandarin, sugary, straw, faint spice, light wood. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a barely noticeable tarte wash. Sweet and messy.

phaleslu (9376) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2016
330 ml bottle brought all the way across the Atlantic and the North American continent by Theydon Bois, who thought it fit to share it with his roommates for RBWG week. Thanks a fucken ton, Cloin. This one pours a hazy gold with a small white head. Cough drops, brother. Candy-like, weak, unhelpful cough drops. Sugars, oak, and earth. Light-medium bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a sweet, oxidized, somewhat tart mouthfeel. This is gross and weird.

VsXsV (3921) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 29, 2016
Bottle. Hazy hay yellow liquid with medium white head. Aroma of artifical peach, apple, grain, alcohol and pear. Taste is medium sweet and light sour with notes butter, apricot, lemon, vinegar and butter. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Awful. Very buttery.

Leighton (18525) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2016
Bottle shared in SF - many thanks to Colin. Pours clear yellow-gold with a creamy white head. The nose has some damp hay, ripe lemon, grass, citrus rind. Medium sweet flavor with rich bready mad, sugary cities, dough. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sugary finish, more damp bread, ripe citrus, lemon. Pretty mediocre.
