Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy "apricot" gold with a 4 finger creamy beige head. The aroma is apricot skin. Med body, almost. Flavor is apricot and mixed grain. Surely wheat is there. It’s neither sweet nor bitter. Fairly floral as well as apricot. Certainly a nice drink.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at a Samuel Smith-pub quite close to Charing Cross. Hazy apricot color, with a very nice lasting offwhite head. Apricot aroma, orange, peach, malty, biscuits, rather on the sweet side. Apricot flavor, sweet, oranges, citrus notes, sugary, banana notes, pine apples. Rather sweet fruity, but somehow it gets away with it.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Supermarket Liquor Fort Collins and shared with LeninCat. Pours a bit hazy yellow appearance with a white head. Kind of soapy/floral, peach/apricot, apple aroma with maybe a faint hint of diacetyl. Tangy apricot/apple fruity, vanilla, a bit acidic, a bit buttery flavor. Fair amount of sweet, sour, and candy notes. I’m not digging it.

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 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at PIB, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out pungent apricots, with not much else. Flavour is similar, with loads of apricot, with a medium residual sugar quality. Very fruity and mildly sugary. Very drinkable and enjoyable. Great stuff.
