3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nearly-clear, orange beer which is quite lively. Aroma is strong apricot. Taste is a sharp, slightly sour apricot flavour and something else (almost a toasted malt undercurrent but I’m not sure if that’s what it is) with the almost pickle-y apricot flavour being what lingers. Very crisp and refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle. Rather pale yellow colour. Medium white head. Sweetness and apricots in the aroma. Some sour notes too. Slightly sour apricoty beginning. Fruity in the middle. Apricots and slightly sour notes in the end. The palate is sweet. Rather light bodied, medium carbonated, drinkable fruit beer. Nothing special. The sweetness was too intensive.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.355 l bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Appearance is cloudy and yellow. Taste has obviously apricot. This is somewhat dry but still a bit too sweet for me. I would like some more wild yeast or acidic micro-organisms. Leave the cane sugar out. please.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
- trüb goldene Farbe mit leichter Schaumbildung
- Aromen nach Aprikose, Honig und grünem Apfel
- passend spritzige Carbonisierung
- der Antrunk hat einen leicht vergorenen Apfelmosttouch
- erst in der Mitte gewinnt die Aprikose dann die Oberhand
- und genau hier wird mir das Bier dann eine Spur zu süßlich
- im Abgang wird die Süße durch die Hopfenbitternis etwas nivelliert
Fazit: Interessantes Fruchtbier, mit einem etwas zu süßen Touch

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Drinks of the World Winterthur. Pours hazy orange with fast depleting head. Smells of apricot with hints of citrus and banana. Taste starts wonderfully refreshing, with hints of citrus and sweetness. Body is full of apricot and just a bit of bitterness. Finish is sweet and a bit sour.
Great Beer for the summer, it’s really refreshing and tastes great. Will try the whole organic fruit beer range when I get the chance!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very good. Aroma’s fresh, ripe apricots, yeast, and a hint of malt. Flavor’s similar to nose, mostly sweet offset with a bit of tart and just right carbonation. Slightly chewy. Excellent finish. Goes great with an aged cheddar.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Surprisingly nice lacing. Has a thick frothy white head which is very sweet and fruity. Golden translucent in colour. Aroma of apricot, fruit preserves, grain. Taste is again apricot, particularly dried apricots actually, honey sweetness and bit of sour without feeling acidic. Wheat is present as well. Slightly bitter on the finish. High carbonation, average bodied. Overall one of the better fruit beers I’ve tried and a recommended example of the style.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml gorgeous bottle bbNOV17, BierH. Bref: would make a great dessert contrast of funky-sweet natural apricot flavours to Cantillon’s FouFoune. - So this is only bottled at Samuel Smith, brewed and blended on the basis of some sort of organic wheat ale by Melbourn Bros? Ingr?: 4% apricot concentrate and extract...somehow less than the 15-20% fruit in fruit lambiek, yet just as aromatic. Nose: reminds me of "confituurke" aka apricot jam-slathered Belgian pastry...sweet apricot jam, candi sugar, natural apricot peel and stones included. Drinks astoundingly uncloying, if fruity-sweet. Apricot yoghurt and quark dessert comes to mind on account of the wheat porridge underneath. - Will revisited teamed up with FouFoune!
