from Bier-Bienne - hazy dark orange beer with a little foam left; sugary ice cream aroma of apricots; hugely sweet, sticky and medium-bodied, lot of residual sweetness and long artificial notes of apricot - no, thanks

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled @ de Molen tasting, small sample. Clear yellow color, short to no head. Aroma of pure apricot juice, yoghurt, bit flowery. Taste is quite sweet from apricot, light sourness. Almost like a cider. A small glass is actually quite nice and it could even improve with double the alcohol, more viscous and serving as a dessert. I doubt I would be able to finish a whole bottle, so for drinkability it gets -0.3 in overall.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ 2nd Tuesday tasting. Aroma is huge apricot, like those cheap little puddings, not much else. Flavour is sweet and tangy, cider like, light wort note. Okay. More a cider or lemonade.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ 2nd Tuesday tasting at De Molen, hosted by dEnk. Clear golden pour, thin white head. Aroma of fruit kwark, very very fruity and creamy. Flavor is very sweet, thin and fruity. Almost no resemblance to beer, more like cider. Well balanced and well made, but I really don’t like the style.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled from bottle @ De Molen 2nd Tuesday Tasting. Clear yellow - golden color, virtually no head. Aroma is just sweetness of apricot and sweet apple. Tastes sweetness and apricot and that’s basically it. Guess that’s what they intended so well done. Don’t really get any beer flavors though, more like a cider.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, shared around the table at game night (Caverna!). Mellow golden body average white head. Full on apricot aroma, natural but sweet, with bready undertones. Sweet juicy apricot opens the palate, but there is a nice malt structure here that shares equal billing-- this isn’t just a fruit juice fizzy drink-- and best of all, there is a nice bitterness in the finish. There is no comment on the label about the hops used in this beer, but they impart a balance that make this fruit beer such a pleasure. A great patio brew.
