KansaiBeerLvrs (3343) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 24, 2015
At Rich’s Massive Cellar Emptying Tasting. Fleur d’Abricot cumbre 7.7% gold and softly opaque with a rich apricot. Spritzy raspy carbonation on a soft light body. A bit gassy going down with a lightly tart apricot flavor. Subtle flavors which 5 hours into the tasting my palate isn’t equipped to appreciate. 3.7

sebletitje (7879) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2015
Bottle @ Drink Rich’s American beer, thanks to Omgrich. Dorée-orangée, col blanc. Arôme offre un immense bouquet abricot tirant vers la purée, juste impressionnant et dominant quais tout le nez. Palais garde ce profil abricot mais versant vers un style belge dans l’usage de la levure. Retrouve un côté finement acidulé mais dont le caractère doux et sucre résiduel de l’abricot parvient à contrebalancer.

jackl (5812) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 22, 2014
Sample @ Three Notch’d Tasting. Bottle via trade. Hazy light amber pour with a small head. Nose is slightly muddled. Belgian countryside. Saison yeast. Ribbon candy dipped in marmalade. The flavor’s actually pretty sharp. Loads of apricot and peach fruit skin. Pretty tart. Mildly acetic and sour. Nice clean finish. Bright and zippy. Medium body, active carbonation. Enjoyable.

Drake (10695) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 21, 2014
750 mL bottle shared by jackl at a tasting, 10/6/14. Very hazy orange with a large fizzy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of balloon rubber, latex, peaches, vegetal and floral notes. The taste is mildly tart peaches, oatmeal, mild lactic notes. Medium bodied, mild lingering tartness. Weird one.

Bottle at Jester King Zwanze Day. Golden pour with a white head. The aroma has some nice apricot notes as well as some pepper, biscuit malt and yeast. The flavor is also very apricot heavy. I get some tart and sweet notes from the fruit as well as some yeast, lemon and orange. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nicely done.
