MiP (14488) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 30, 2008
Bottle, 3.5%. Citric aroma. Hazy orange colour, dark floaties. Small white head. Sweet flavour, quite citric, strange smokiness.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - APR 17, 2008
Purchased at Foremost Sunset Corners. 12 oz capped and corked bottle. Extremely unique aroma. Not the best smell. Smells of Grey Poupon mustard, grandma’s attic, and the oak from an old decaying outhouse. Pours deep rich golden color. Apricot juice... really? Was the juice from the apricot pit?? Flavor is quite syrupy and sweet. Overall you get past that frightening smell. It is quite a change from the norm... Candi coated fruit juice.

ChainGangGuy (4559) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 13, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, orange body with, well, okay... so there’s no head. Who says a beer had to have one anyhow? Smell: Displeasing aroma of spoiled vegetables, mustard seed, and cheap, rotting wood. Any apricot to be found here seems fake at best, and it’s not worth subjecting yourself to the rest of the aroma to find it. Taste: Sweetish, apricot juice flavor is fleeting, as a funkiness that can only be described as trash can juice creeps in and never lets go. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Mild carbonation. Drinkability: No thanks times a million! Grab a Cantillon, get yourself a 3 Fonteinen, but do steer clear of this mess.

vyvvy (4738) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 21, 2008
Wow, usually if a lambic is sweetened I’ll rate it as a fruit beer ~ whichever way will give it the highest points I go with. This beer horribly failed on both ways of rating. Pours orange with a sudsy beige head. The aroma is very veggie and comes across like a putrid mix of apricots and celery. I don’t like celery in anything really and in beer its revolting. Medium body that is a bit cloying with minor carbonation. The taste is better than the aroma with very sweet apricots, some spice and a bit of tartness. The finish has syrupy fruitiness like in canned fruit. As the beer warms that horrible veggie aspect starts coming back. Mediocre if looked at as a fruit beer, terrible if looked at as a lambic. Not very good and certainly not worth the high price tag.

yespr (36095) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2008
25 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a dense white head. Sweet fruity and slight acidic aroma. Sticky sweet with dominant abricot note. Citric and acidic, which makes me shiver. Ends with an abricot and marcipan like flavour. Very sweet.

shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 15, 2008
Pours an orange color with almost no head. Aroma is dirty damp wet paper, some apricot, and damp moldy wood. Flavor is sweet apricot juice, and a slightly moldy rotten aftertaste.

Bottled(250ml). -Like drinking too sweet peach juice, maybe to little alcohol, unpleasant rotten apricot nose.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 1, 2008
Clear darker blond coloured beer with no carbonation and a full average white head. Fruity malty aroma. Medium palate, with some sprankling. Finish is sweet sticky, light sour fruity, dry near the end. Ok

PorterPounder (6299) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2008
Tallahassee, Fl. - Market Square Liquors - 12 oz capped and corked bottle. Murky dark orange pour with a brief thin white head. Aroma of ripened apricots, some toe jam funkiness. Flavor is of course dominated by apricots - more like the dried kind, not fresh ones. Hints of sourness, but not as sour as I like my lambics. Just a hint of vinegary sourness, but turns a but bland and metallic near the end with some barnyard funkiness thrown in there. . Mouthfeel is a bit tired and lifeless. Had better lambics
