hotstuff (3953) - Indiana, USA - FEB 4, 2007
Bottle. Small off-white head that fully diminished, no lacing, transparent, very, very little carbonation, and a light orange hue. Nose was sweet, sour, tart, sugary, syrupy, and apricots. Flavor was the same with some stickyness and dryness. Mouthfeel was smooth, syrupy and dry. Light body. Nothing to write home about with this one.

Pours light yellow...no head. Aroma is monster artificial apricot and sugar. Flavor is similar...except there is a bit of milk and caramel. This beer is for girls. Mouthfeel is syrupy. This doesnít taste that bad...but it is hard to drink...sugar water. Maybe be good to pour over fruit for desert.

SHIG (3449) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JAN 11, 2007

(Bottle) Pours a lightly hazy golden body with a small white head. Aroma of fruit (apricot, peach) and corn syrup. Flavor of apricot and lots of sugar. Alcohol-pop...

frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - DEC 5, 2006
Settles as a honey-hazed orange/amber with noticable thickness and a slight head that is quickly a thin halo. Apricot is strong and candied in the aroma after an initial pungence of moldy wood. (This may have been the guise of the yeasty funk I had expected. I was saddened that it did not dissipate.) Thick & syrupy in the mouth with a contradictary astringence. Flavor is at once insanely sweet and tart with pronounced fruitiness and a tannic splash of oak. Mild acids singe like reflux while sourness lingers on the tongue like a Jolly Rancher.

DrnkMcDermott (2748) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - SEP 18, 2006
Sampled from bottle. Itís pretty much sparkling apricot juice. A bit of cherry on the side. I thought there should be some lambic sourness to distinguish it more as a beer. There was a touch of bitterness to itís finish. Iíd say itís fine as a fruit drink, but not much as a beer.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2006
A Mes rate: Bottle from Cambrinus in Bruges. Simís mum had it, honestly I did NOT order this. Lots of apricot and sugar and nothing much else. Alarmingly sweet flavour and finish. Its like sugar water with apricot syrup. I thoroughly expected to get to the bottom and find a sugary residue left behind like the end of a coffee. YUK

Suprised by this low rating. Of this, the peche and the banana, this is the only interesting beer at all. An incredibly sour aroma with some floaties. It has a crazy bite. A rare one-at-a-time type beer. May have gone a little funky but I thought it was pretty decent.
