3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
For the name and artwork alone, I had to give this bonus points without even cracking the bottle. 12 oz bottle poured into a snifter. The arom is floral with bright, sugary apricot cland mild citrus with herbs, bread, and a mineral water. It’s a murky amber beer with thick foamy, dough like, white head with a great, meringue like retention and am abundant snowdrift lace. The taste is a medium bitter front with a medium high sweet finish that’s almost balanced with a light sour hint. The oily texture has a foamy carbination and a medium body. There’s a bread crust mouthfeel with notes of floral and a mild caramel and fruit quality. The finish is zippy with a strong sweet apricot followed by a bitter, fresh floral cleansing, and a slightly soapy and astringent quality. There’s also a lightly cloying and mildly medicinal touch to the floral herb. The aftertaste is tart apricot, floral, dough and caramel and has a mild lingering quality.

Pours cloudy amber with a thick beige head.
Apricot, caramel aroma.
Taste is lightly sweet, floral, caramel malt, apricot, chamomile tea.
Increasingly floral and spicy as it warms.....
Pretty good, but starts to get a little too heavily tea-laden after a while.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber color with a frothy off white head. I got a bit much of the dregs in the glass. Floral and fruity nose. Some caramel and honey sweetness with apricots, peach, and a spiciness that I’ll say is the chamomile. Finish is apricot jam with a bit of a burn. Interesting.

Draft at Ei8ht Ball, served in a flight. Pours a cloudy orange color with a small off-white head that settles into a ring. Notes of caramel malts, apricot, florals, bubblegum, light mint and chamomile, earth, and wood. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a muddled mouthfeel. Strange beer.
