3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From tap at De Prael during the second brett days. Pours hazy dakr yellow with a small to medium white head. Aroma has lots of apricot, apricot jam, sweet, some tropical fruit. Taste is slightly sweet, apricot, tropical fruit, a bit of funk and a soft sourness. Not as sweet as I expected from the aroma and quite nicely balanced with the sourness. Bit low carbo.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap from Oersoep @ de Prael. Hazy yellow color, short to no head. Aroma of loads of apricot, bit pineapple and citrus as well. Soft funky notes, bit peppery. Soft sour in taste, lots of fruit again. Reminds me of the apricot pie my grandmother always used to serve. The good thing is, it’s not sweetened apricot flavor like some other brewers would use, but it remains the sweet refreshing sourness of the apricot. It’s not my favorite fruit, but a decent beer.
