3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nose of baby food... apricots, squash, and just a trace of oxidation. Appearance is amber honey with a good amount of haze. Head is very short lived, but was off white and medium bubble. Carbonation is still abundant and very spritzy, carrying some spice with the flavour of the beer. Quite spicy. Mouthfeel is medium. It’s a very simple and subtle beer with a decent palate. Sweetly balanced, not terribly "apricot-ish", certainly more in the nose. Water crackers, white pepper, decent hops in the back. Finish is short, but there’s so much gas in this beer. Bit of a burpfest if you’re doing anything but sipping. It’s reasonably good.

From a bottle. Pours very cloudy orange copper with a thin fizzy white head. Tastes sweet and slightly dry, fruity, like apricots, apples, grapefruit. Light body and low/medium carbonation. Smells like dough, light spice, dried apricots.

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.

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.
S - Apricots (not fresh but not artificial); Belgian yeast; alcohol esters; tropical fruits.
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.
O: Mpre Belgian character than expected; not that they over did the Belgian yeast but they didn’t hold back either. Bold, juicy and fruity with very good bitter-sweet-tart balance. Worth seeking out.
