3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled @ de Molen tasting, small sample. Clear yellow color, short to no head. Aroma of pure apricot juice, yoghurt, bit flowery. Taste is quite sweet from apricot, light sourness. Almost like a cider. A small glass is actually quite nice and it could even improve with double the alcohol, more viscous and serving as a dessert. I doubt I would be able to finish a whole bottle, so for drinkability it gets -0.3 in overall.

Wonderful brew which reminds you of a sweetish lambic rather than a cheap fruit beer. Full apricot with balanced carbo, some sweets and slight bitterness in the end. Classy one.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2013 Sampled from a 16 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy apricot color with a trace foamy white head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was sweet apricot, sugar and a touch of yeast. The flavor was very sweet apricot jam with a tart and sour middle followed by sugar and more apricot. Long sweet sugar and apricot jam finish. Fairly full bodied and syrupy. Excellent.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle. Clear, golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Sweet-ish, fruity, apricot aroma. Taste is sweet-and-sour fruity, apricot notes, slightly prickling sherbet character. Not too sweet, without artificial touch, slightly monotonous. OK.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
These Sam Smith Fruit beers have been interesting, to say the least. Some are cloying, some are understated. This one may be the best one (I think. I need to check my ratings...). Nice palate - light without being fizzy. Smells great, of course, but one dimensional. Taste is Apricots, a little honey, and apricots.

Pours completely opaque dark yellow.

Taste is slight wheat, almost invisible under the syrupy, nectary, sugary apricot.
Wonderful taste...just way too much of it.....
