Rune (8065) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2011
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).

Anker (723) - Hillerød, DENMARK - APR 16, 2011
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.

j12601 (6603) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 3, 2011
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.

Ibrew2or3 (6905) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 28, 2010
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.

DuffMan (6751) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 26, 2010
Bottle, corked and capped. Very hazy orange amber, creamy white head that recedes to a thin skim. aroma is apricots in syrup and light funk. sweet apricot fruit, quite genuine, with musty basement nuances and a lactic tart finish. Quite sweet, but with a pleasant tartness and funky edge.

sebletitje (6700) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 23, 2010
Bouteille partagée avec Jcwattsrugger. Dorée, blanche Arôme d’abricots fermentés, sucre et grains. Palais garde bien le goût d’abricot, et je trouve cette dernière un peu trop sucrée, ressent un léger picotement que l’on peut détecter avec l’abricot. Le tout conserve un côté de blé.

SanfordBrewer (1391) - Sanford, Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2012 Hazy gold, no head, syrupy medium body, low carbonation.

Aroma: sweet toffee bready malt, rich apricotl.

Taste: sweet caramel, dark ripe apricot, and a nutty or pit note.

Great flavor. Sweet, but not cloying The sourness is not as harsh as most lambics, which is nice, but it could use a little more.
