2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

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

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

This was new and I thought Iíd try it. Not to happy about my choice. It pours a murky light orange with no head or lacing (flat as a board).Somewhat offensive rotting fruit nose. Very tart flavor. Not really apricot but some kind of fruitÖ Beware

Bottle. A bit girly and sweet, with a hint of sourness. MOuthfeel is candy sweet apricot cordial, feeling almost slightly sticky. Pretty crap, but iíve had worse.

Clear pale yellow with weak white head. Faint fake apricot aroma. Would never know itís apricot in a blind tasting. Pathetic.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber red body with a small head. Sweet sugary apricot aroma. Flavour is similar candy like fruit like a hard candy. Fruity apricot, is sweet with very light tart finishing notes. Medium saccharine palate. Add some soda water and you would have a decent summer spritzer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle (250ml). At Smokeless Joe, shared with jerc. Slightly hazy amber pour, nondescript white head. What can I say? This smells like slightly yeasty, very sugary apricot marmelade - the aroma is more pleasantly tangy than the flavour, which is cloying sweet, and the apricot seems less real. Sticky, candyish, syrupy fairly flat mouthfeel - if you need a sugar fix, this is your drink.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: Cloudy darker gold, short white head. Strange aroma of cheddar, dust and rotting fruit. Sweetish apricot notes, but more just brown sugar and balsamic vinegar. Not good.
