3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampler at Brixie’s in Brookfield, IL., showing a clear, golden color, with white head froth, and clingy webbing & spots of lacing. The nose was light yeast, tartness, with vinous qualities, an apricot scent, and alcohol presence. The flavor was similar, with noticeable sweetness, light body, with soft carbonation, and restrained alcohol warmth. Okay.

This beer really almost tastes like a slightly fruity malt liquor. The finish is really too similar. Disappointing.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Apricot colored beer, whitish head. Overripe fruit flavors, sweet honey, yeast, odd malty flavors. NO harmony...not good.

bottle at a tasting.
Aroma: Not sure how to describe this. It’s a weird, fruity aroma. That’s the best I can do.
Appearance: Fizzy orange/yellow with an average sized, diminishing white head.
Taste: Sweet fruit. Plum apricot hybrid is probably not my favorite flavor. Bleh. Not bad, just wasn’t crazy about it. Heavy sweetness and light acidity.
Palate: Fizzy and sticky. Short finish.
Overall: I’d pass on it, but that’s just my personal taste. I like fruity beers sometimes, but this one was too sweet for me.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden pour with a short lived white head. Nose is slightly fruity with very little, if any, pluot. Mostly just sugary sweetness, some metal, and alcohol. A little bit of yeast and spice. The flavor is just more of the same. Sugary sweetness, light fruit, and some metal. Disappointing.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Surprisingly very pleased by this. Clear light golden pour with small ring of near white head. Nice fruity nose that seems just a little sweeter than regular apricots. The flavor is similar to that of a wheatwine but with a nice pear/plum juice quality. Sweet, but not fake syrup or medicinal at all. Every so slightly warming as it slides down the gullet. Semi chewy body. Hides that abv very well despite it’s young age. I’d be very interested to try this again in a few years.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at Khoury’s in Henderson, NV. Clear honey color with a medium thin white head that recedes gradually to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of what must be a plout fruit: sweet pitted fruit, yeast and malt. Full-bodied and syrupy with flavors of sweet fruit, earthy yeast and malt. The finish is sweet with a lingering fruity yeast aftertaste. Decent overall.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Golden clear pour, with a white head. Sweet plums, stone fruit, sweet doughy bread, a bit cloying sugar, and yeast.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a golden orange color with a white head that quickly disappears. Mild Belgian yeast notes along with sweet fruit, pear and apricot. Medium mouthfeel. Sweet...apricot, orange, melon, and cherry all in this one. Belgian yeast evident at the end when the sweetness dies down. Drink cold as when it warms the 10% abv joins the flavor profile and not in a good way. What happened to the Lips of Faith series? It has become sooo hit or miss. C’mon NB, you’re better than this.

I had this at Global Brew. This had a nice fruity aroma, pour a nice gold color. I thought this was really good. I would drink this again.
