Pour is a clear-ish yellow with a small white head. Aroma is a floral apricot. Flavor is also a nice apricot without the sweetness of the strawberry beer. This one I would get again. Nice mild apricot flavor with a more dry finish.

Pours a hazy golden yellow from the bottle with thin white head and light lacing. Aroma is overpoweringly fresh apricots. Taste is holy shit apricot and more fresh apricot with a slightly sour sweet finish. Much better than expected.

Sample. It poured a golden color with a white head. The aroma was of fruit sweetness and malts. The taste was similar to the aroma with more fruitiness, malts and apricots. Interesting.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
500 mL bottle from LCBO served cool in a tulip glass. Clear deep golden with a full white head. Tons of apricot, peach, artificial and natural, buttery diacetyl, not very nice. Medium body, fairly full carbonation. Sickly sweet, mostly artificial apricot/peach, less buttery than the nose, still not very nice; quite sweet with no bitterness and a long, possibly artificial stone fruit finish. Alco-pop for sure. No thanks.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Todayís live review looks like its going to be this nice looking brew.
I poured this into a pint glass.
The appearance was a light somewhat hazy yet transparent golden yellow to almost orange color. There is a one finger white foamy head that steadies itself for a good minute and a half before slowing concaving into the body and ends up leaving a nice clingy foamy lacing.
The smell is basically a good authentic smelling apricot, exactly as Samuel Smith calls for. There isnít much else going on in the smell.
The taste was basically sweet through the apricot notes but ends up giving a tad of a decent sour flavoring in it. The aftertaste is basically sweet apricot and ends up leading to a sweet dry finish.
On the palate, it sits very light on the body and shows an extremely nice sessionable aspect well worth consuming on a mid May day. The carbonation is smooth and tends to hit the spot refreshing-like.
Overall, I say this is a good apricot beer as it does everything one asks for from Samuel Smith, well worthy of having again and well worthy of having as a dessert beer on a nice Summerís evening.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bright orange sunshine body with a thin white collar. Sweet apricot aroma. Sugary, candied fruits, dried apricot. Some nice things going on. This is a suitable beer for one who gravitates toward the sweeter side. Personally, I find this cloying. A few ounces is more than sufficient. A bottle to be shared several ways.
