1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Big fan of this brewery, but not impressed with this 25th Anniversary Series brew. The apricot flavor is very strong and thick on the palate. Just not very enjoyable. Disappointed that this is what I chose to toast 12/5, Repeal of Prohibition Day.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice floral fruity aroma. The flavor has a bit of the Belgian spice and a nice sour fruity bit of apricot. Nicely balanced between the sweet, sour and bitterness. The finish is dry and refreshing.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. Murky, unfiltered orange-tan. Thin, fading whitish head. The aroma is full of apricot, not so far off really bad, infected beer. Tons of pungent apricot tones, but really not an enjoyable beer. Too big and sugary to be refreshing and sessionable, not enough depth to be any enjoyable slow sipper. Pretty unimpressive, suspect offering. If you ever try the off-flavor test kit, this one tastes like "garbage".

12oz bottle into a snifter leaving no beer but a sediment coated bottom. Date stamped bottled on 13 June 2013.
A - Cloudy orange apricot color with a small and weak white head. Very little lacing to be seen.

T: tart-sweet-juicy fruit flavor from the arpicot puree and the Belgian yeast. Lightly tart and sweet taste. Bold flavor.
M - Medium carbonation and a medium body with a juicy mouthfeel.
