3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle. Body had a nice cloudy golden hue with a white head that had good retention and great lace. Aroma had a complex aroma with some nice apricot notes, there was a nice acidity to it reminding me of citric acid. Some mild malt notes. Flavor had a nice sweetness to it, apricot flavor really played well with the malts, but the yeast really complemented the apricots adding some nice almost wild yeast characteristics. Finish was nice and sweet. Mouthfeel was full.

In bottle at Craig’s. Pours a blonde colour with a fair white head. Aroma of apricot, orange sherbet, caramel and alcohol. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Nicely tart to finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a refrigerated bottle into a brandy snifter. Pours a partly hazy orange color with a white head of foam. The aroma is as much like an apricot as anything else I have ever had. More than Fou’Foune even. There’s not much in the way of tartness, although there is just a hint. Taste is like biting into a fresh apricot. This beer is great! I wouldn’t mind having some more of it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
550ml brown bottle. Hazy gold pour, somewhat noisy white cap that settles to a nice inch or so of rocky foam. Strong apricot fruit nose, jammy, floral. taste has some fruit sweetness up front, gains the tart and tangy character from the fruit midway, slight lemony note, dries up a bit in the finish, notes of grainy malt. Medium body and carbonation. Fruits hit their mark here, tastes pretty natural and not overly sweet. Well done, would drink this again.
