DrinkMoreBeer (21) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 23, 2006
Sweet and tangy with a dry finsh. No hops or malt detected. Almost like a cider. Sparkling carbonation and an attractive, clear color. Excellent overall. Too bad so many rating this don’t like fruit beers. It really is excellent for WHAT IT IS - a fruit beer. This really should be rated higher.

Light amber. Taste apricots followed by slight bitter note. Light bodied and juicy.

Aroma is tart fruit/apricot and a sharp and undesirable element. The flavor is apricot, an undercurrent of fruit and a long and sour finish.

POLK (2006) - Hørning, DENMARK - FEB 29, 2012
Golden color with small white head. Weird fruity aroma. Sweet apricot taste. Very funny beer to taste, but not my a beer for my taste.

powerfully fruity and would be much better enjoyed during the hot summer!

bottled, thanks duff. yellowish with a faint head; dried apricot aroma; fizzy an ciderish with enough tartness to balance the apricot nectar character

reebtogi (4039) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 3, 2011
355ml bottle poured a slightly hazy pale amber color with a fizzy white head that settled quickly and left no lacing on the glass. Aroma is strong on apricots. Taste is both sweet and sour fruitiness and not much else going on. Light bodied and highly carbonated.

12oz bottle from Pick’s poured into a shaker. Pours a clear dark gold with minimal head. Lots of carbonation bubbles clinging to the side of the glass. Aroma of peaches, alcohol and sweet fruity malt. Taste is light sweet and medium sour. Tastes just like it smells. Apricots, peaches and fruity pebbles. Light bodied with a thin texture. Very lively carbonation and a long sour finish. Overall, not bad for what it is. I would drink this again if I wanted juice instead of beer.

Koelschtrinker (9999) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 13, 2011
Künstlicher Fruchtantrunk, wenig sauer, nach Marmelade. Die Säuerlichkeit wirkt fast schon unpassend neben der aufkommenden Süße, weiter künstlich. Die Süße, die das Marmeladenaroma ausmacht, wirkt penetrant, das Bier unausgeglichen. Zum Ende herb marmeladig. Nicht gut und schon gar kein Lambic! 7/5/6/5/9/5

Early amateur rating warning! Clear beer. Well carbonated, refreshing sharp fruity taste. Very nice!

Amber/Rose colored with a thick, fizzy head. Aroma is loaded with sweet and tart fruit and a yeasty spiciness. Flavor is a dry crisp sweetness with a light malt background to smooth it out. Light to medium bodied with a refreshing sparkle of carbonation. One of the better fruit beers that I’ve tried.
