4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2012 At Red Lion on Rockwell. Some apricot ales taste like beer with some apricot in them but this is more like sparkling apricot juice with some beer in it. Cloudy orange-yellow. As a beer I’m not sure how to judge it but as a beverage as a whole it is delicious. Just enough bitterness from the beer to keep it from being cloying. Wonderful summer drink. Serving: Bottle Had some again, it is so refreshing and good. Fantastic stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy golden yellow from the bottle with thin white head and light lacing. Aroma is overpoweringly fresh apricots. Taste is holy shit apricot and more fresh apricot with a slightly sour sweet finish. Much better than expected.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Whole Foods Kensington, London. Colour is almost clear golden amber, thin head head. Nose is very fragrant apricot, but there’s also some mango, like a mango lasso drink. Some lactic. It’s very sweet fresh apricots. Taste is sweet sugary apricot, almost like a fruit drink, but nicely balanced is a light to medium beer backbone and some light tartness to temper the sweetness. Crisp lagerish backbone.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Cloudy yellow with a generous white head. Nice apricot aroma. Odd becasue I wouldn’t previously have thought of apricots as having a very distinctive aroma. Flavour is a supreme balance of malt and fruit with a touch of wheat. The apricot is very well rendered. A touch oversweet on the finish. This is probably the best fruit beer I’ve tasted.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
18.7 oz bottle rated yesterday. Looks like pureed apricots--cloudy, same hue of orange; has a collapsing white head. Aroma is apricoty, biscuity. Taste is mostly tart with a dry finish; flavor is apricots with a tinge of metal. Has a definte British flavor; reminiscent of Sam Smith’s other brews. Definitely enjoyable, but maybe not as good as I was hoping.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Golden coloured with a very strong aroma of apricots which follows though into the rich fruity apricot flavoured body. There’s a warming sweetness followed by a slight tart and biscuity finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
16.9 oz bottle which cost way too much at $6.49. Cloudy orange color, good head, looks nice. Smells like apricots and sugar, eh. Tastes like apricot syrup and sugar and not much else. Cloyingly sweet and unpleasant, I would never buy this again. Dry Dock does a much better job of capturing the apricot without the sguary sweetness.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
18.7 oz. bottle- Pours a muddy hazy orange with a very thin tan head that reduces immediately to bug bubbles on the rim. The aroma is apricots actually, tart, very fruity, appealing. The taste is the same, tart apricots, they really resonate, no complex flavors, it actually tastes like apricot juice with some carbonation. Body is medium to almost thin, carbonation is medium. Overall this is really good, would be a great summer drink, I almost feel like it should have ice cubes in it, it doesn’t have much of a beer flavor.
