3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Neck is stamped SJ18L1.
Appearance: The body is a cloudy amber to dark orange with a frothy white head that has decent retention and settles into a thick coating on the top of the body.
Aroma: The aroma is lively, lots of apricot aroma ranging from tart to sweet, perhaps even a touch acetic. This smells wonderful.
Taste: This is lovely. The intro is sweet and fruit with the apricot which provides the main flavor here. The finish has a light tartness to it, with very mild vinegar notes.
Palate: Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation.
Overall: This is the apricot version of Duchess de Bourgonge. I greatly enjoy this, it’s a pleasant surprise!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet with a nose and flavor of apricot. Not sure how much the organic characteristic comes into play. Sweet, refreshing, and overall a good fruit beer.

Pours a pale golden yellow with a white head. Aroma intense with fresh apricots. Taste is very sweet followed by a slightly tart orange citrus turn. Ends up a little to much towards the sweet note.

550 ml bottle. Mostly clear yellow orange, smaller foamy white fading head. Tantalizing apricot aroma. Sweet apricot juice taste and not much else. Softer than average carbonation, lighter bodied, no discernible malt or hop presence. Tart finish. Good for what it is. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is nicer than I hoped. Some funk and sourness to it with lots of apricot. I think more beer-wise than some are giving credit, though I don’t think credit is the right word. What I mean is, that they’re wrong. This is reasonably beery.
