jnkor (333) - Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Looks like a murky brown, with a very small head. Aroma is full of vinegar with some sweet. Taste is assailing, like vinegar and sugar, and somewhere in there beer. In fact, repeated tastings are a struggle to overcome the vinegar taste impact and get at some real flavor. Finish is extremely dry.

VsXsV (3640) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 29, 2016
Bottle. Hazy hay yellow liquid with medium white head. Aroma of artifical peach, apple, grain, alcohol and pear. Taste is medium sweet and light sour with notes butter, apricot, lemon, vinegar and butter. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Awful. Very buttery.

Nose is like super fruity hive loops. Super light in color. Taste isn’t bad. Mostly sugary sweetness meh.

Leighton (16261) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2016
Bottle shared in SF - many thanks to Colin. Pours clear yellow-gold with a creamy white head. The nose has some damp hay, ripe lemon, grass, citrus rind. Medium sweet flavor with rich bready mad, sugary cities, dough. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sugary finish, more damp bread, ripe citrus, lemon. Pretty mediocre.

sjogro (1572) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 8, 2016
At Maakun’s. Pours a straw golden cup of joy. Smells of dried apricots sugar and dusty cardboard. Tastes mostly the same with the addition of a weird boozy sherrylike touch. 1 up for the master blend. Funky funky stuff, for the freaks.

Maakun (2341) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 8, 2016
Bottle shared at home. Slight hazy golden with small white head. Mainly unfermented wort, sugary, very dusty, dry cellar, light hay, maybe some apricot skins but I don’t get much fruit actually. Quite sweet and light sour. Medium bodied. Pretty bad.

cmacklin (571) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 7, 2016
375ml bottle. Pours a clear, golden orange with a small, fully diminishing, off-white head. Sweet aroma of apricots, oak and a hint of wheat. Sticky, sweet flavour of apricots, sugar, oak and straw with a slightly dry, sour finish. Light body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Not great.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5965) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2015
Sampled from a 12 oz corked green bottle this beer poured a dark amber color with a small foamy white head that faded quickly and left decent lacing. The aroma was musty, dryish, a hint of cardboard and a bit of apricot jam. The flavor was sweet and tangy apricot jam, sugar and yeast. Medium length finish. Moderately full bodied. Quite tasty!

Daanminator (437) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2015
Biertje is niet al te zoet wat hem goed doordrinkbaar maakt. Fijne smaak van abrikoos.

freretoc (1374) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 20, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 20cl chez Will, couleur blonde, mousse peu présente et effervescence moyenne, une bière avec une attaque sur le sirop d’abricot, continuité sur l’acidité du lambic et fin de bouche ultra sucrée !

Renobob (1462) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 16, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 25cl. Nez abricot, palais sucré, pointe d'acidité. Trop sucré au final.
