(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...

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.

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

dwyerpg (4827) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 20, 2006
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.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 23, 2006
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

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2006
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.

jercraigs (8423) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2006
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.
