3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500mL bottle. Poured cloudy peach with a nice cap of white head. The aroma picked up lots of fairly sweet apricot and peachy notes, with touches of must and earth.. no complaints. The flavor opened tart, with apricot skins and a bit of wheat character.. sweeter apricots (not much peach here) at the core with wheaty undertones.. deeper apricot character and wheat tartness on the finish.. tasty stuff. Medium-bodied with just the right engaging tartness on the palate.. smooth across the middle.. very good feel and flow. I enjoyed it much.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
August 21, 2013 - bottle, at Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese. Murky orange-gold with a minimal white head. Aroma is pretty pungent - slightly unripe apricot and lemon, just a little grassiness to make it smell vaguely beer-like. Taste - pretty solid - ripe apricot and mild but present funk, not much alcohol - maybe a bit like a tart apricot and wine concoction, but actually pretty damned drinkable. Thick body, some acidity, high, light stinging carbonation and a quick sweet/tart fruity finish. I like this better than their others.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
11/10/12. Bottle sampled at Grassroots. Hazy orange yellow pour with a small yellowish head. Fruity apricot aroma with a hint of tartness. The flavor is also sweet apricot but with a bit of sour as well. Apricot isn’t really my thing but this isn’t atrocious.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Gardiner & Haskins, Bristol. Pale amber with a slight white head and moderate carbonation. Light arma of apricot, peach juice and a hint of lemon zest, with a trace of rustic yeast. Flavour had some sweetish fruit juice to start, before some more substantial malts, and then a dryish finish which left some tannins in the mouth. Avoided being syrupy, which is commendable. Good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: This is one smooth brew, lots of Apricot and not the fake stuff either. Dark straw in color, very thick, moderate frothy white head, nice lacing. Nose is a little dank, has an Apricot aroma and also a bit of fruity cheese and tootsie roll, surprisingly enough. Just like with New Glarus, had you given this to me and not told me what it was I wouldnt think of it as beer. Liked this one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled on 4/11/2012. This fruit beer pours a hazy apricot color from a 500ml bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is apricot, fruity, malty and sweet. A medium bodied fruit beer. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are earthy. A very nice apricot beer. The apricot flavors are semi-sweet and very natural tasting, it tastes just like a perfectly ripe apricot, neither too sweet nor too tart. Nice soft carbonation. Lower ABV could make this a good session ale, but I am not sure just how many of these I would want to drink in one sitting. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
