3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
"another well made fruit beer by Sam Smiths (i also liked the cherry and raspberry). the aroma is wonderful...more juice than beerlike, but just exploding with fresh apricot and a slightly tart aroma. body is fuller than expected, as is the look (no-seein through color of apricot juice). the flavor is nice...almost too much fruit, pretty sweet with a hint of tartness and hops and wheat. i wish these were not a couple bucks more than SSmiths regular stuff, but i may revisit the three...this is good. a touch less sweet and a bit more sour and this could be frikkin incredible."

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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Bottle (550ml)] Pours a clear deep gold with an average size lasting frothy white head and some lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet and fruity, maybe a bit tart -- it’s mainly apricot and not much else. Good fruity flavour, mainly apricot along with a bit of grain and malt way in the back. Medium bodied. Simple but pretty good if you are in the right mood.
