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.

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.

Purchased at Foremost Sunset Corners. 12 oz capped and corked bottle. Extremely unique aroma. Not the best smell. Smells of Grey Poupon mustard, grandmaís attic, and the oak from an old decaying outhouse. Pours deep rich golden color. Apricot juice... really? Was the juice from the apricot pit?? Flavor is quite syrupy and sweet. Overall you get past that frightening smell. It is quite a change from the norm... Candi coated fruit juice.

Hazmatt (363) - Virginia, USA - MAR 28, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2006 Bottle. Imported from Belgium. Orange copper color, minimal head. Dried apricot aroma. Very sweet, dry flavor, not even a hint of malt or hop profile. Surprised at the low rating, I liked this a lot, though a bit weak. Wife remarked on how it tasted like new wine. I will have to venture further into the world of lambic.

Liked this a lot more than the notes. Winey in texture and taste with more sweetness than one would hope but I found it to be clean apricot sweetness. Some mild sourness. I enjoyed it.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2010
Bottle. Aroma of apricot-dough, earthy woodsiness, some sort of apricot confection aside from the dough that blended with it. Flavor again big on the apricot with tart and sweet notes that are quite pleasant and not artificial, medicinal, juice-like, anything of the sort. Last few chapeaus Iíve had Iíve sort of agreed with the consensus, but this one I liked.

maxwelldeux (3500) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with absolutely no head on it. Nose is very light and peachy - like a nice sweet peach jam. Taste is nice and sweet with definite peachiness coming through, but not overly sweet. Nice brew. Iím sad itís not rated too well.

..has a slightly funky sugary aroma, that and apricots ... has lots of sweet and tangy flavours, with some intresting back funk... a nice beer that refreshes after a hot day digging graves...
