Light orange color, spritzer like high carbonation. Quickly fading white head. Smell is funky musty spoiled yeast (i guess what people call "barnyard" perhaps, some apricot like fruit juice and sugar. Wow, extremely sweet tasting. More like soda pop than beer. Kids would like the taste of this, Iíd bet. Just smells rancid though. Sweetest beer Iíve ever had. Fairly tart as well, which is sort of nice, but too sweet to drink much of. I dumped the last 3/4 of the bottle.

Rastacouere (6136) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2007
Cloudy amber, large initial off-white head looks actually decent and is the strongest point. Honest apricot vapours walk side by side with a soapy sugariness that is obviously fake. Ridiculously sweet powder sugar meets apricot flavours. Luckily, fake carbonation reduces the sweetness impression a bit, but expect no fun when you enter the realm of the chapeau.

Ughsmash (7175) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 12, 2007
Bottled. Poured clear, orange-tinted apple juice yellow with just a few loose bubbles sticking around for head. The aroma picked up some sweetened apricots, but they came across as stale, and were backed by stale oaky notes.. some soap in there, too.. not good. The flavor was of super-sweetened apricots (fresher, more pleasant use of the fruit, but still stale on the back-end) with old, wet oak and a little barnyard funk in there too.. lots and lots of sugar! This was way too sweet on the palate, muting the nice acidic/tart notes that pop through intermittently.. the stale notes really took away from the enjoyment.

Bottled. Hazy orange colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is dishwater, soap and artificial apricot. Flavour is big sugary apricot and paper. Not worth the money.

Iím not really getting much flavor from this one. While the is some apricot flavor. The rest has some sugary sweetness contrasted with tart. Not the worst, yet not the best.

The aroma has apricot, sugar, and yeast. The appearance is deep, cloudy, gold with the thinest head. The flavor is weak but it is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall itís OK but thats it.

Aroma is sweet and stinking of tropical fruits. Taste is similarly overly sweet like god knows how they managed to get this much sugar in it.

thedm (4968) - Fort Wayne, USA - APR 1, 2007
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of frothy medium sized bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a hazy light orange brown colored body and a oily lacing. The aroma was lambic like dry and smelled of apricots. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish. The flavor contained notes of semi-sweet semi-dry apricots. A decent one that I would consider buying again.
