2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, at the brewery. An unclear, orange-golden beer with a dense, off-white head. Apricot and sugar on the nose. Sweet flavor with white sugar, apricot and some sourness. Dryish, yet quite sweet on the palate, medium body. A beer that is sort of pleasant, although I got some thoughts that it might taste better if blended with vodka or white rum. 110501

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle, shared with Finn at the brewery. Clear, golden, bubbly surface. Smell and taste of apricot on syrup. Much more sweet than tart to the finish. Artificial impression. Not for me (Toer de Geuze, Wambeek 01.05.2011).

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at home.
Pours hazy golden with almost no head.
The nose is dry-sweet apricot and pomerans.
Flavour is similar but way to sweet and sticky somewhat like a fanta soda.

Not too bad. Didnt really feel like the apricot flavor was enough, it has a nice smell, color is nice, amber ruby. Aftertaste is lingering but with a fake flavor of fruit.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a hazed ruby brown with a small white head, soda bubbles mostly. Soda sweet, acid with some sweet fleshy fruit notes. Not sure if I really pick out the apricot so much, as it comes off more an amalgamation of peach, fresh plum, nectarines, and apricots. Little to no carbonation and deadly sweet. More apricot here but it really just tastes like a Goya fruit soda. Not really sour, or if it is, the piles of sugar and flavoring have killed it off. Lingering sweet candied fruit finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Pours clear pure gold with weak white head. The aroma is a bit sweet with peach, wet concrete pavement, mild funk and slick sweetness. The taste has lots of sweetness running into a peach/apricot mix then a sense of caramel and then drifting away into fading sugary sweetness. Pretty nice, love the touch of funk.
