On cask at Three Tuns, Dronfield - Much hyped by my friends who’d had this the night before, so was looking forward to it. Big nose of apricots dominate this, the body looks okay - a bit hazy, but nothing disturbing - and the head laced all the way down. The sweetness of the beer was apparent early on, the apricots again coming through, but leaving the bitterness of a sourer fruit. Unusual, and got a bit fed up of it towards the end....

Bottle, Pale gold hazy beer, no head. Aroma of what may be apricots, just sweeter. Taste is sour fruit, not sure what again could be apricots. Carbonated lager like on the palate. A good beer reminiscent of a belgian.

DanielBrown (3819) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2012
Bottle from Asda, Thurmaston, Leics. Looks like a lager, smells like a fruity, plug-in air freshener. Well, well. Expected nothing from this, but pleasantly surprised. Fresh, clean mouthfeel, light fruity taste, with a firm dry UK hop backbone. Very refreshing. Enough flavour. Professionally done.

imdownthepub (10297) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2012
Cask conditioned at The White Horse at Banbury Cross, Banbury. Hazy Gold with white head. Strong fruity aroma leading to a sweet passion fruit, apricot flavour which dominates the beer, over bearing for me, not great.

AshtonMcCobb (2574) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 25, 2012
On tap @ Cloisters. Pours golden orange with a decent head. Nose of vegetables and citrus. Taste similar. The palate is medium throughout and there’s a clean finish. Overall, yeah I’m glad I had it.

Bottle. Clear, golden and flat with no carbonation. Slightly fruity with a trace of bitterness.Just about the right side of blandness.
