3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Golden coloured with a very strong aroma of apricots which follows though into the rich fruity apricot flavoured body. There’s a warming sweetness followed by a slight tart and biscuity finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The appearance is cloudy peach with a medium head. The aroma is fruity but also a bit meaty and there is a yeasty beer underneath. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall a nice beer to try but it has an off aftertaste that throws it for me.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
550mL bottle. Pours cloudy yellow with a touch of pink. Looks like Apricot juice. Thick creamy white foam. Aroma of apricot puree, loads of fruit. Distant floral hops? No essence of malt. Tastes mildly sweet, a touch of fruit tartness. Again it tastes like apricot nectar. So good and fruity, it feels healthy; like a smoothie. Thick texture, heavy bodied, light ABV. Apricot has dominated the existence of all the senses in this beer, in the best ways possible. Very refreshing, an excellent fruit beer. (3342)

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 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.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle @ Shrewsbury Beer Share, Aug 15, courtesy of Mike S. Can’t actually recall having an apricot beer before. This is lovely. Vibrant apricot taste, it’s almost like an apricot juice drink than a beer. But as I love fruit, and smoothies, I can’t help falling in love with this. Delish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear orange pour, big white head. Very sweet apricot aroma, floral honey, and light pale malts. Regular mouth feel and medium carb. The finish is not as sweet as the aroma leads on. The finish is lightly bitter, and a touch tart. The sweetness is quick, and dry, and pleasantly fruity. Nice stuff.

bottle. cloudy gold with a large, fluffy, stable white head. strong, apricot nose. creamy and full bodied. drinks like juice. sweet but not overly so. lots genuine apricot flavors over a bright, well made, hefty, wheat beer. i think these samuel smith fruit beer offerings have all been great.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Aroma of apricot and light malt. Cloudy light amber color, smooth white head that stays, small waves of lace. Taste is mild malt infused with solid natural apricot flavoring. Maybe a bit of bittering in the end. This is more about the apricot than it is beer, but it refreshes, and drinks easy.
