I was too kind to this one. Lightly colored amber. Nose and taste is freshly picked apricots. Light bodied and juicy. Rated 6/7/02

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is one of those occasions when everything comes together at the right time. I had this on a hot afternoon right after reffing 3 soccer matches. It was ice cold from the freezer. Poured a clear amber with a small white head. The aroma was full of apricots. The flavor was perfect for the times. Apricots with a very nice sweet and sour blend that went down so thirst quenching, I had to gulp down a second.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a pale amber to dark gold with generous white head, a slight amount of haze. Nose is full of apricots, almost as if this is simply fruit juice of some sort. On the palate it is very Champagne-like with the carbonated white wine qualities mixed with a whollop of apricot smack to the face. Tart and somewhat challenging to taste, unless you really like that big fruit.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This bottle is at least 2 years old. Clear amber, thin white head. Aroma is sour vinegar, apple, other sour fruit. Taste is also very sour which I think is good to some extent even though I donít think itís usually like this. Has a good amount of sweetness to balance the sour.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Looks like a dirty golden colored liquid. Holding up to a light source makes it look abit better, but not alot. Slight head with almost no retention and minimal lacing.
Smells much better than it looks. Very nice ripened apricot aroma. A little bit of malt peeks through. Smells sweet.
Very pleasant, fresh, ripe apricot taste. Slight butterey taste. Just a touch of apricot skin-like sourness. No hint of alcohol. Drier than expected from the scent.
Nice medium body. Not too heavy, yet not watery thin. Itís alright.
Could drink many of these, but I think that Iíd rather have a Lindemans Peche.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer from Belbourn Brothers pours a nice, golden brown/amber with a transparent quality. Itís very carbonated but produces no head, although it has a decent film. It smells like apples and has an overly fruity scent to it. Though, you canít really detect the apricot. It basically tasted like apple cider. It has a thin consistency with very little body. But, it has a brilliant taste - I could easily chug this with how good it tastes. As noted before, the texture is quite thin. Thereís nothing else to note aside from the fact is has a nice fizz as you drink it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
absolutely no head and very closely resembles iced tea. It is extremely carbonated at first but fades over time. The smell is pretty much exactly what I expected: apple cider, apricots, peaches. The taste is a little worse than what I expected but also not bad and resembles greatly a decent alcoholic cider with a little more kick and tartness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taste and aroma are apple juice and apricots (shocking). A bit tart but not significantly so, with low acidity. Kind of a wimpy, chugable lambic. Not bad though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours an opaque copper body with a thin white head. Overly sweet with artificial apricot and peach y notes. Some light sour cider and vinegar notes. Eh.

I felt the need to eat an Atomic Warhead to balance out how horribly sour and gross this was.
